illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle from Super Saver in Pennington, NJ. Pours orange amber with a white head. Nice aroma of citrusy and floral hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Malt profile is a tad thin, but with a british toffee like character. The juicy bitterness is nice, but not aggressive with hints of tangerine and grapefruit. Finish is semi dry with some very slight acidity. This was surprisingly good, and refreshing for an IPA.

I am far from being a hophead but this is one citrus based IPA that I can sink my beer tooth into. Gifted to me from friends in Natick, MA.

I was suprised at this one. I had had their blueberry ale and this one was sitting in my cellar. I was reluctant to try it since I was so disappointed in the blueberry. Well, I figured I might as well get it out of the way and rate it. So I cracked it open. 12 unce bottle from Glenville beverage. Pours a nice light golden color. Nice head and lacing. Smells citrusy like grapefruit. Nice little bite, bitter like it should be but not too bad. Light body, light mouthfeel. I liked it but I bet Ill like it more in the summer as a thirst quencher.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pretty decently balanced IPA b/w the hops and malt. Has a slight citrus taste. Has a decent sized head on the pour and has an amber/honey color. Pretty good brew for Red Sox fans.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2007
A hazed amber ale with a thick creamy dark off white head. Light hops and caramel aroma, light orange marmelade. In mouth, a decent grapefruit hop attack followed by biscuitty malt, a bit thin, but honest IPA. Bought this at CJs, Potsdam, 1.59$.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle. Amber body, medium white head, weak nose with some citric hops and caramel. Not very hoppy; caramel body with some finishing bitterness but only a hint of light citrus.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear light amber in color. Aroma is citrus hops, pretty fresh and lightly resinous. Taste is a moderate amount of citrus and floral hops, with some sweet pale malts and light caramel. Bittering is mild for the style. a pretty decent easy drinking IPA.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle -- Poured a surprisingly pale golden amber with a giant cratered foam head. The aroma is peppery right off the bat, but the beer drinks much more mellow than the olfactory glands might suggest. Yet this is a flavorful brew, full of spicy hoppiness, rich malt backdrop, and a light floral herb flourish to wrap it all up. This would be great with Asian ... sweet and sour, fried rice, or garlic chicken. Nice. (#3108, 9/23/2007)

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin but lacy white head. Lightly herbal and citrus aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Toasty malt taste with citrus behind it, but the finish is a bit grainly.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2007
12 oz. bottle, marked freshness date along the left side of label, sampled in a pint glass. Poured a slightly hazy orangey amber, nice fluffy, creamy off-white head, good retention, minimal amount of laced sticking. Aroma of floral and orange rind-like hops with a light backing of sweet pale malts. Citric, orange juicy hops dominate the taste, just a slight toasted grain maltiness in the background. Towards the end a little sweet caramel comes out. In the dry finish the hops take on a lightly salted orange rind character, taste of chalk in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with slightly rough feel, not the smoothest IPA I’ve tried. Overall, I didn’t care for the balance in this IPA, the hops, for me, just aren’t tasty enough to overcome the mild maltiness.
