zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy apricot, off white head. Aroma is hoppy (citrus), caramel, grass. Flavor is hoppy (bitter leaves) and malty; lots of wheat after taste here, sort of unusual for an IPA. This beer isn’t a peaty disaster, but it’s not super crispy and floral like I heart in my IPAs.

Decent IPA.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2008
bottle. pours a clear middling copper color, pretty big head that clears quick, leaving a decent ring. Aromas of metallic citric bitterness and toasted caramel. Flavor improves over the nose a bit... sharp but not overdone bitterness, tangy citrus, and mellow toasted caramel. Average on the palate- finishes on the bitter side, decently balanced going down.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a dense beige head. The aroma is mild caramel malt and some citrus hop bitterness. The flavor is lightly malty to open, followed by citrus and herbal hops in the finish. There is an overall bittterness that is present, but not aggressive. Medium bodied and fairly smooth to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Bottle. Poured an amber/copper color with a pretty good white head that lasted to the end. Lacing was fair. Aroma was balanced between the hops and malt with the hops coming through initially. Flavor also was balanced well between the hops and malt. Much like a good English IPA. Mouthfeel was pretty good. This is a highly drinkable IPA.I enjoyed this beer

A rather good IPA, though I admit that I’m no fan of the genre. The palate is well-done toast and grass, clover hops, and spring water.

Decent mix of sweet and bitter hop. Light aroma, some roasty toastiness. Not too hoppy, actually could use a little bit more.

Purchased at the Winn Dixie in Abita Springs. Dark red brown - impressive white head. It’s an ipa with the volume turned down. This could be a "starter" ipa for folks not used to this style.

Picked up from the singles shelf at Green’s, Jockamo poured out amber in color, clear of body, and with a foamy one finger head. Not many streamers in the liquid after the initial fizz, making me think that this was a filtered and force carbonated beer. The smell was mildly hopped with citric and earthy smells mixing with caramel. The taste was milder than I like my IPAs to be. Hop content was modest and only barely ahead of the sugary malt. I was surprised for find out that this was over 6% ABV and would have been contraband a few years ago in Georgia. It drinks much simpler and lighter than the actual strength. The body was medium thick but not very sticky. Not very bold, but not flawed in any way either. Might try again someday.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is hops and sweet malt. Flavor is malt and hops with quite a bit of sweetness balancing out the hop bitterness. I enjoyed this because it had the sweetness balancing out the hops that you usually find in hop monsters, but this is much less thick and syrupy. Good IPA.

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Pours clear copper, minimal head. Aroma of pine hops and sweet malt. Taste is fairly sweet and malty up front with bittering hops at the finish. Thin body, almost too easy drinking for an IPA. Nothing exciting, but a nice drinkable beer.
