Bottle. Orangy clear pour with a decent head. Big citrus grapefruit aroma. Fairly hoppy flavor, with some toasty semi-sweet malts. Not quite enough malt or body for an IIPA for me. Decent.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle. Appearance is gold with a small head. Aroma is not hoppy, more grain. Taste is a little hoppy, but not really for this style. Not at all a IIPA. Finish is not very bitter. Body is a little thin. Again, not sure how this is an IIPA. Not a good beer beyond that either.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of at rade with TheBeerCellar. Pours a clear coppery orange with a thin yellow-white head that faded to an uneven film after the first sip and left a sheet of lace after each sip. Pleasant aroma of caramel and some citrus. The hops aroma was a bit light for an IPA. The flavor was caramel up front with some hops kicking in towards the finish. Smooth, almost creamy on the palate. If the label did not say it, I would not have taken this for an IPA, however, that in no way diminshed my enjoyment of this beer.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle thanks to TheBeerCellar. Pours amber with good sized off-white head. Nose of pine and hops with a lot of malt. Flavor is rather malty, sweet and some roast. Good amount of alcohol up front with a decent bite of hops that leads to a dry finish.

courtesy of rollinhard, nice amber pour with some froth up top. hoppy, creamy, wood and slight vanilla scent. nice thickness with a huge malt taste and the hops kick in afterwards. very good beer.

[Bottle, thanks Tytoanderso] Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is very grainy with some light hops. Slightly more hops are present in the taste but still far less than I had expected Medium-thin mouthfeel with a somewhat dry finish. I would not have pegged this as a IIPA, but regardless of what it is, I didn’t really care for it.

Not very inspired. Some hops and medium sweet malt. Lightly bitter, but not enough flavor or palate for a beer of the style. Gold color.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Sampled at MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering in Maplewood, MN and supplied by tyleranderso. From a 12-oz bottle pours a clear golden orange brew with a fast dissipating white head that leaves behind a thin ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus and grapefruit zest, and a touch of pine. Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of mostly citrus zest, some light bread malt and a touch of herb spice. Finish is semi-bitter with a lingering citrus aftertaste long after the finish.

Many thanks to tytoanderso. Gold color with no head. Faint taste in of malt and hops.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Golden-amber color. Aroma is bready, sweet and caramelish with some subtle citrus and floral hops. Flavor was of a subdued citra-floral hoppy nature with way too much sweet malts. Either way too old or not hop forward enough.

12 oz bottle from trade with TheBeerCellar. Pours a clear orange-amber with a very thin off-white head. Some irregular lacing. Aroma was pine hops with some sweet malt. Flavor was more malt than expected with a strong hop taste. Mouthfeel was medium with some carbonation and a good bitter aftertaste. Seemed just a tad hoppier than an IPA, probably because of the added malt.
