A nice fresh grapefruit IPA, very fruity with nice summery easy-going hop taste, not overly aggresive, but tasteful and refreshing. Nice quick sweetness up front to prepare the palate again for the hops, keeping each sip new again. kyzr (1608) - Montana, USA - JUN 9, 2006

(Oregon Craft Brewfest at The Oregon Garden) A amber colored IPA with a great flavor and aroma of Simcoe hops . This was a tad different and had a great flavor. Clean and crisp this was a great IPA. .
Very smooth and clean tasting, with some sticky, and very piney hops in the nose and the flavor. Very light and somewhat thin, but easy to drink. This would make a really nice summer time IPA. Overall just an all around good IPA, just wish is was a little heavier. OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2006
