Dogbrick (12233) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2005
This brew is a lightly cloudy pale orange color with a thin off-white head. Sticky patches of lacing. Good amount of grapefruit and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with a tart mandarin orange and hops flavor, along with a decent malt backbone. The finish is hoppy and lingering. Pretty impressive when its all said and done.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Light amber. Low head. Medium (for american micro) hop aroma. Peaches and passionfruit. Big hoppy body. Sharp aftertaste.

omhper (24074) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2005
Bottled. Deep golden, dense head. Lychee hop aaroma. Medium bodied with rounded, clean mouthfeel. A streamlined, archetypical US style IPA with lingering very bitter finish. One-dimensional, but very enjoyable.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Medium gold with a thin, fine head. Earthy hops aroma with some malt and yeast--quite a dark, almost musky, aromatic hops profile. Very clear hops flavors with little malt. Some restrained vegetal hops flavors with good bitterness and some nice resinous qualities. Good mouth feel with assertive, mouth-coating bitterness.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Bright pale gold in color with a fizzy, foamy white head. Aroma is starch, grapefruit, honey dew, chamomile, lilacs and honey. Bold, paling hops at first touch. Intense, then reverting to a starchy scratchiness paired with an herbal mixed bag of lilies, carnations, daffodils and old pine needles. Encompassing bitterness and medium-bodied. Malts arent succinct but the hops pursued their mission nonetheless. Finishes with high bitterness and twanging sweet papaya.

adrian910ss (2570) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Pours a medium copper color with a nice full white head. Smells of pine needles and citrus. Tastes citrusy, with a grapefruit prominence. Very similar to stone ipa and bells two hearted ale, yet lacking in the bite that those 2 have. Overall, an excellent ipa.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Poured typical golden yellow with a decent head that left decent lacing. Aromas of grapefruity citrusy hops and flavors of the same. Maybe just a little watery on the flavor, but still a very tasty IPA.

BeerandBlues2 (12474) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Bottle at The Avery Experience. Light orange to golden with a tall rocky white head; lined lacing. Fragrant floral hop aroma with pine and grapefruit notes. Pine and citrus rind acidic resiny flavor with a roasted grain caramel malt body. Light to medium bodied and fizzy.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 So far, the least favorite of the IPAs Ive tried. Too much of the "piney hops" for my taste. Overly harsh and bitter with them. Color is a nice gold, nice lacing white head, but aroma tips off piney hops, and the taste grabs you and says "somethings not quite right here". IIve enjoyed a number of different IPAs and 2IPAs, but not this one.

Ratman197 (13870) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle poured golden with an off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavors of pine and earthy hops, a hint of biscuits, with a bitter finish.
