From bottle. Medium caramel aroma, sweet, with sharp spicy hops tainted by some oxidation off notes. Dark amber clear with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts sweet with toasted grain, caramel, and light oxidation. Good hoppy flavors with medium bitter finish and sweet after.

Pours a brownish amber with a big beige head. Aroma of hops and sweet malt. Flavor is grainy malt, light hop bitterness, disappointing.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Via trade with tronraner. The pour was clear, vibrant amber with a short white head and spotty lacing. The aroma was spicy and peppery. There was pine and floral hops. Only a whiff of citrus. The flavor was spicy pine hops and some thin malt on the backside. Not bad, just not too complex.

Bottle thanks to decaturstevo. Nose is a malty slightly rye aroma. Pours an orange amber with a good off white head. Flavors are very malty, metallic, notes of grapefruit. Mouth has a light bitterness to it.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Clear copper color. Small, lasting off-white head. Hops in the nose. Medium body, slightly carbonated mouthfeel. Hoppy flavor with a bitter, hop finish. Very little malt in the flavor. Could use a little more of a malt backbone.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Deep red, gummy thick head. Dry malt, brittle leafy hop aroma. Toasty, altogether average and tasty. Little leathery.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours a deep amber copper, with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is nicely hopped with a light malt backing. Not bad. Finish is obviously bitter. Body is medium with a fair amount of carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable and basic IPA.

Rustyham (1835) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2009
Starts off strong, good smell and color, but the flavor doesn’t match the intensity of the nose- it just dissipates too quickly. At Beerfest Miami 09

Nice deep cooper pour, good head and retention. Piney hop backbone is evident on smell and taste and waves of citrus and flowers wafting back and forth. Good overall mouthfeel and the nice toothcoating quality I like. A good quencher which has study enough hops but not overwhelming which leaves for a nice balanced drinkability.
