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 didnt 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 cant wait to finish this six-pack because I do not want it to take up any more space in the beer fridge.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - 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. Id like to see a much bolder step taken in this direction by this brewery!

argo0 (13437) - 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 (dont ask me, that is what I experienced). I would drink this beer again. Not bad but not spectacular or original.

Goodgrief (2010) - 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.

aracauna (3531) - 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.

patrick767 (4032) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2008
bottle - Pours clear amber/orange with a one finger white head. The aroma is of citrus hops and caramel malt. The flavor is a solid balance of these hops and malts that isnt terribly interesting, but its good. This beer is medium bodied and has the characteristic long, bitter IPA finish.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2008
Brew poured copper with an white head. Lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus & floral hops, as well as some misplaced grain. Flavors are also of citrus, more hops flavor than malted grain (like lemon grass), but still the grain is subtuly in there. Mouth is fairly carbonated and body is medium. Not the best IPA. Would be much better if not for the grain, though not a bad drinker.
