Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy but not overwhelming. Taste is hoppy with a bitter bite and a bit malty. Thin on the palate.

heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. The body is light copper with a lightly off white head. The aroma was grapefruit with some caramel. The taste has some sweet bread crust with a toasted finish. There are hints of orange peel with the light body. It’s ok.

Not bad, but a bit meh for an IPA. Orangish gold with a thick off-white head. Light hop aroma and taste, more of an amber than an IPA, really. Flavor is subtle hops over malt. Nothing remarkable, but not bad.

Bottle poured into a shaker - Pours golden amber, slight orangy red. Large head for an IPA - but disipates quickly... Strong hoppy aroma. Flavor is like most IPAs of hops. Flavor is hoppy as well with a taste of alcohol. Nice Beer, I honestly didn’t expect it to be as good as it is. Will have again - not sure why the others rated this low... make sure to check the expiration date before buying... Mine expires in a month.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle...very one-dimensional brew, and not a good example of an IPA. A honey-like sweetness predominates with the smell and taste of sour apples. Light head. Alcohol, though 6.5%, is not noticeable. Some bitterness on the finish. I can’t wait to finish this six-pack because I do not want it to take up any more space in the beer fridge.

RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2008
Fairly light hop nose...mild pine and citrus. The pour is attractive enough...coppery gold with a moderate and quickly fading head. The flavors are pretty muted for the style...light pine and grapefruit, caramel and toffee...but all very subdued. I’d like to see a much bolder step taken in this direction by this brewery!

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2008
(12oz bottle, thanks Peregrinari) Small beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, juicy orange/grapefruit, light pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some grapefruit, bread, earthy. Light-medium body, some stickiness.

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2008
I found this beer good but not particularly original. The aroma was citrus with mild caramel and hops. The appearance is really nice with a bit of cloudiness and a nice orange light brown amber color. The flavor is a bit sticky but is citrus and hops with caramel and pine. Finish is fairly smooth but drying and sticky at the same time (don’t ask me, that is what I experienced). I would drink this beer again. Not bad but not spectacular or original.

Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 13, 2008
Clear vibrant copper color with smallish head and no lacing. Mildly hoppy aroma. This one was pretty well balanced with a lot of toasty bready malts, moderate sweetness and some citrus and some earthy style hops. Not overly exciting, but not terrible.

3.5
aracauna (3682) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a clear copper with a good, lasting yellowed head. The aroma is a bit leafy. Peppery, good malt backbone. Very nice easy-drinking IPA.
