3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy golden orange color. Texture is fizzy and crisp, with a medium-to-light body. Flavor is sharp, piney, sweet, lightly soapy, while a little tinny and metallic in the finish. Semi-sweet aromas of pine needles and sharp woody hop notes. Slightly grassy, but in a bad way, actually.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 3, 2005
(Draft: Steelhead Brewing Company in Eugene, OR) Pretty decent west coast IPA, sweet and fairly malty in a pale malt sort of way, with a balancing grapefruity and moderately bitter hops. Medium bodied, good carbonation on the palate, reasonably clean right from the start, fairly crisp in the finish. The nose is light overall with a sweet orange citrus aroma. Clear golden color, topped by a small, off-white head that fades to a rim fairly quickly. No lacing, just like all the beers, but I’ll blame it on the glasses.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Not really that hoppy.Very pale coloring for an IPA, with small head. Left a nice lace on the glass. Lemon is the dominant aroma. Flavor is well, balanced, but that’s not how I like it. Not great, but not bad.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Amber with a light creamy head and stringy lace. Fresh hop aromas. Bitter, floral, piney with lemon and orange citrus notes. Bitter again in the flavor with citrus, melons perhaps. Malts back it up well. Creamy mouth feel with a bitter hop filled finish

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Sampled draught at Steelhead Brewing, Eugene
Copper color, sticky head. Nose of hop resin, something horizon or Amarillo like, pale malt & dry alcohol. Nice plum feeling in the mouth and a clean finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2005

Clouded orangey color. Hop spiced, balanced malty grain aroma. Good hoppy flavors, sweetness of tangerine, bitter grapefruit and lemon. Not strongly bitter but good tropical fruit and citrus. A well balanced fruity IPA.

ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Burlingame. Fruity aroma. Hops really not detectable in the nose. Creamy, off-white head. A little faint visible carbonation. Good lace. Nice peppery body. Discernably hoppier than the Pale ale. Very similar to the White Dog PA, but just hoppier. I also had the cask version but my taste buds were too burnt out to rate it. It was smoother, creamier and good, though I preferred the standard.
