Bottle at Brickseller, Washington DCbhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Hazy blond color. A quite easy Pale Ale, dryish, but with a fairly strong hopping.
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours bright gold with a 7-finger head. Aroma is somewhat yeasty malt over resin and fruity hops. Medium plus body with very smooth, soft carbonation. Flavor is pine and citrus. The malt is rather subdued. A whole heck of non-harsh hop. Nice bitter finish. It’s like not all that bitter, but it’s all that bitter.

Bottle,. hazy orange with a huge but ugly-shaped off-white head - I have to wait a few minutes until I can even drink anything other than foam. Aroma of piney hops and caramel. Bitter hoppy flavor with some malty (maybe a bit grainy) sweetness and some pine needles. Light to medium-bodied. Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draft sample at MBGF. Hazy dark amber color with a large frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture.

Good lord, this is a gusher. Bottle from Degarth. Pours a slighly hazy peach color with a head of epic proportions. Retention is also epic. Will I ever get to drink this? Good lord, I just noticed I still have two thirds in the bottle! See you in half an hour! Well, that was really only like 25 minutes, and once all the head on the sides of the bottle condenses I’ll probably have another sip or two. Aroma is honey-ish with a floral hop profile. Smells really nice to be but that might be because I’m freaking thirsty by now. Major citrus... kind of like eating a grapefruit. The honey-like sweetness is in the taste as well. Thin mouthfeel and the aftertaste is a bit too bitter. A little bit off balance. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Pours a deep golden color with a medium ivory colored head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Light pine and citrusy hops in the nose. Light-bodied and crisp with mildly bitter hops and citrus flavors. Some pale malt is present as well. The finish is short and mildly bitter with a light hoppy aftertaste. Overall this is a one-dimensional IPA that I would not bother with again. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Degarth (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy yellow color with a larger sized head. Aromas of citrus and a little biscuity. Tastes of citrus and a little grassy. Nice grapefruit bitter finish. Thinner body. deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a HUGE white head. Seems to be overly carbonated. Aroma seems a bit off with an odd combination of pine and grapefruit notes. Flavor is too sour and combines really awkwardly. I gave it to four of my friends who don’t drink craft beer but they agreed that something was off. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear golden ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, off-white head. The nose presents heaps of honey, crystal and biscuity malts and earthy hops. Well-balanced, earthy flavor. Sweet toffee and bitter, tannic grapefruit roughage. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Crisp, bitter, tongue-numbing (Novocaine-like) finish.
