A good IPA - going from memory here. Nice and amber with minimal head, flavors of citrus and a little pine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant IPA here. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a medium head. Leaves plenty of lacework on the glass. Flavors are potent of citrus and berries. Flavor is slightly sweet but not cloying. Finish is very smooth and bitter. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Eugene Brewery. Hazy apricot color with citrus aromas with notes of mango. Flavor was hoppy citrus and grass. Not bad.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This draft brew from the brewery in Eugene poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy uncarbonated dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weak flavor contained notes of hops and mild astringency. A poor ipa that I would not buy again.

Sampled at the Brewhouse in Burlingame. Had a good flavor with a fair use of hops that really lead it to be a good brew. I prefered the IIPA, but this one is good.

Had this as part of an 8 beer flight. This was my favorite of the beers in the flight. Relative to other IPAs Iíve had, I thought this was pretty good. The description I read was dead-on - "lots of malt flavors, intense hop finish"

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells of some piney hops with too many malt notes for an IPA. Medium Amber color with a small white head. Tastes of floral hops with a sharp apple bite to it. Aftertaste is too bland without a long lasting taste too it.

Draft at Steelhead in Irvine CA on 8/15/06. This is possibly the worst IPA Iíve ever had. Hops do not even exist in the realm of this beer. Do not order it. Yuck

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange color with little carbonation. Light hop aroma with a good hop flavor and malt profile. Overall a clean easy drinking IPA.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly cloudy, orangish amber color with a small, bubbly white head. Hoppy aromas are light and smell of herbs - maybe some fresh tarragon and oregano, but not overly fragrant. Flavor is smooth and quite malty, which is a bit of a surprise. Relatively quick finish with only a trace of hops and herbal notes lingering at the end.
