Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2006
The beer after its pour from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a hazy golden amber color with a semi-creamy light tan head that is modest in size, after its slow demise, the lace forms a thick and sticky sheet upon the glass. Ah, the nose a blend of sweet malt, citrus like crispness, and the ever present hop floral aroma, quite a treat to this old schnozzle. Start is somewhat sweet with a pleasing grain presence, the top light to moderate in its fell on the palate. Finish is dynamic in its hop spiciness, the acidity tolerable, and the aftertaste dry as a bleached desert bone, a nice drinkable beer, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t say you better like hop bitter beers

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
Orange golden color, fine white head. Fresh and fruity aroma with lots of hop and a creamy note. Hoppy, creamy and grassy flavor with a dry mouthfeel. Very Californian! Thanks Fut for sharing!

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours copper/orange with no head. Mildly hoppy aroma of pine. Flavor is slightly sweet, simple. Hides the alcohol very well. Crisp bitter finish. Thin body.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Light Copper Coloring with White Skin. Hoppy Aroma. Dry Hop Taste and Dry Aftertaste. Not a Solidly Thick IPA, but What You Would Expect From a Regular IPA, Only with the Presumed Alcohol of 9.5%

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle from Steve, thanks dude! Served in a standard ole pint glass:

Pours a nice deep golden hue with a moderate frothy head and left some good lace. The aroma is floral and spicy hops, citrus, bready crystal malt, and a hint of alcoholic vapors. The taste pretty much followed suit with noticeable hop character upfront support by a light malt sweetness. The citric quality runs throughout has well as a yeasty dryness. The feel is a bit underwhelming really, I expected a bit more body than this offers, it is lively and has an astrengent dry finish. A solid brew for sure, dangerously drinkable.

ross (2080) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2005
light brown in color, with a big hop floral aroma. malty and pretty balance in taste. something ive been wanting to try for a long time, glad i finally got to. these beers are pretty good, hope they eventually make it this far east.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Wonderful, perfecl balanced, fruity, hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy dark gold in color with an off-white head. Excellent lace. Beautiful, perfect appearance with fine bubble carbonation. Initial mouthfeel is a little unbalanced in favor of bitterness. A little too thin and airy for a IIPA. Could use more malt backbone and a touch more sweetness for balance. Pretty tasty and not "knock you on your ass" bitter as some IIPA’s I’ve had are.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Man,I sure hope that the nose on this is no barometer of what is in store as all I am getting from this is syrupy malts. Maybe it is the bottle as everyone else seems to have had a different opinion. It is plenty bitter and that is good as I was expecting plain malt. Still,for the style I am very disappointed.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Original Rate, 12/16/05. Copper color with a thin color. Citrus and pine aroma. Taste is a fine hit of pine, but the body is pretty watery and lacks the malt/hops oomph to make it a good IIPA. Still tasty. 7-3-7-3-14 Re-Rate. Thanks to Skyview for bringing this so I could try it again. Much the same, but the taste is much improved. It has the same burst of citrus and pine the aroma suggests and the body doesn’t seem as watery. Two points higher overall.

Bottle shared with tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear orange with a small diminishing white head. Big aroma of fresh citrus hops followed by malt -- it smells awesome. Flavour is surprisingly smooth, I was expecting a big kick of hops and alcohol but this is scarily drinkable -- hops and malt are perfectly balanced. Medium bodied. A fantastic beer!
