Pours a dark golden color with a semi-frothy white head. Bit of a savory, protein-like smell on this one. Decently hoppng, with a slightly more pronounced yeast flavor than other EPAs. Good bit of thickness. Finishes slightly astringent and quite earthy. Pretty good.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2006
A nice copper color with a thin, white head. Grapefruit in the aroma with a subtle, sweet caramel in the background and just a touch of honey. Flavor is caramelized grapefruit with a rather salty edge and finish. Light in body but good drinkability but the saltine throws me a little bit.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with CaptainCougar. Aroma: Some light tangerine and sour apple, grainy malt, piney hops. Pretty mellow aroma. Appearance: Dark golden in color and clear. Off-white head was full and frothy, but didn’t last long. Not much lacing. Flavor: Light bready malt, pine and citrus hops, some spice and grass into the finish. Bitterness is balanced just right. Finishes crisp and clean. Well balanced. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: A great ’lawnmower’ beer. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Hard to believe I hadn’t rated this yet. Golden copper pour...off-white head, sorta fluffy. Light hop nose gives way to a fairly bitter hop flavor....decent malts to back it up...pretty good. Bitterness lingers to the end...nice mouthfeel. I really like their IPA and this one didn’t disappoint.

Terminus (3329) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 19, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 bottle-thanks to snegrams3 for this one. Pours light orange with a very slight white wispy head. nose is not that strong. nose of sour apples and light citrus. flavors example the sour apple flavor with a touch of honey. really not all that great. light citrus and hops on the finish. palate is somewhat boring and doesnt take hold of the mouth. pretty basic for the style. RERATE-at brewpub in atlanta airport-very solid pale-copper hue with a small white head. nose of pine, carmel malts and very sierra nevada clone-esqe smelling. pine and grapefruit flavors dominate the palate with a slash of pale/carmel malts. very balanced and solid pale ale here. I could drink many of these!

On tap at the Broadway Brewhouse and Mojo Grill (Downtown) in Nashville. Disappointing after three really nice PAs. Had an odd aftertaste, and was weak for the style.

DYCSoccer17 (3466) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 18, 2006
12 ounce bottle thanks to my brother, ChazyRPH. Mild hop aroma with hints of grapefruit and some floral notes. A little sticky and sweet maltiness is also detected in the nose. Transparent copper color with a small off-white head and scant lacing. Light floral, grapefruity hops present to start. There is a weird astringency present as well. Some sweet, sugary malts follow. Finishes with a light dry finish. A little thin-bodied.

12oz bottle. Filtered and golden orange. Quickly dissipating white head. Sweet caramel apple malt nose with a citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied. Light malt roast. Sweet caramel bready notes. Finish is medium dry with a soapy floral citrus hop kick. Cheeky and tasty!

Boutip (5076) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Mr_Kimchee: Poured a deep amber color ale with a medium slightly off-white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of hops is well balance with some caramel malt. Taste of caramel malt with a slightly bitter and citrus finish. Well done for the style but nothing extraordinary either.

Knoxville Brewers’ Jam 2006. Pours crystalline gold with small cream-colored head. The aroma is grassy hops and some crackers. The flavor is saltine crackers, bread, and a dry, hoppy finish. Ok, if gimmicky.
