badgerben (4575) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Gold color with a thin head. Very piney aroma. Tastes like hopped Pine-Sol. It also had a lot of chunky sediment. A bit oily. Not too good. Re-rate 10/17/07. Had to try this again and I really wanted to like it better, but I stand by my prior statements.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2004
a tan mixing with yellow color w/ very light head and little carbonation.. the aroma was of malt hopps and light citrus.. the palate was the best part, very creamy and rich in the mouth. The flavor was that of a decent IPA w/ a hoppy citris taste w/ hints of some malt.. I again dontí really like IPAís but this wasnít bad. Overall Iíd get a non IPA

JCW (1276) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2006 Copper colored, translucent, very small white head transverses the glass. Aroma is grapefruit slightly grassy, with slight amounts of sweetness. Flavor is citrusy (grapefruit) but not terribly bitter. Tart but not bitter finish. Thanks John

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Nice golden to copper color with very little head, and some lacing. Nice hop aroma, citrusy and floral, some malt and then a little diacetyl. Monster bitterness up front, there is a little maltiness, and some hop flavor, but the bitterness is on top of this beer. It has some body to it as well which helps balance the hops, and I think this is a good choice for any hophead out there.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Bottle sample GLBF: Nicely hopped nose of citrus and pine. Bright gold in color. Nice fruity balanced beer. Malts are soft and the body is pleasantly plump. The big fruity hops finish leans toward grapefruit. Bitterness isnít huge, but there. Nicely done.

aracauna (3196) - Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Clear peachy-gold-amber body with a dense white foam head. Very pleasant aroma. Apricot and orange fruitiness melds nicely with citric and floral hops. The flavor is soft and relatively low in bitterness, despite a fairly large hop flavor. The malt has a biscuit-like quality that makes for a tasty little beer. I likes and Iím glad I decided to pull this one to drink after a lousy day.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours an absolutely brilliantly clear copper-gold color and is topped by a fully tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma is at first citrusy, but then takes a right turn and develops some strong toasty biscuit notes, the nose then finishes with a dank herbal hop note. The beer is lightly sweet up front with a complimenting citrus hop note. It is very light on the palate, in fact it seems this beer has been filtered a bit too much. There is also this really weird funky note here, that I canít quite place, and is not really all that pleasant. The finish is moderately bittered for an IPA. Overall a bit disappointing, I was expecting a bit more from this beer, though it is enjoyable enough and I will definitely have this again.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours a light golden amber with aromas of honey, and slightly flowery. Semi-full bodied with very mellow hop profile.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2004
On tap at brewery. Slightly cloudy dark yellow-orange or copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus & pine. Intensely bitter as advertised, heavy spruce pine and acidity. No balance or malt character. Bitter, yes. Good beer, NO. I think it is better in the bottle.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
12oz Bottled 10Jun04 Pours a clear copper color with a head comprised of miniscule bubbles that settles down to a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, fruit, dough and yeast notes. Flavor is an even bitterness that at first seems as though may be more powerful than it actually turns out. Some good hop flavors but also slightly metallic. Body is medium and well carbonated. Leaves a nice webbing of lace around the glass. Overall a decent IPA but nothing outstanding.
