Pours darker golden brown with minimal head. I get hops on the aroma, a bitter smell from the hops and a bit of malt there. On the palate up front I get hops, subtle malt and really not much else. I guess it is doing what it should to an extent for an IPA, but not much else. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Purchased at Ross Deli in Lakewood as part of a mixed 12 pack. The aroma here is a nice slightly buttery malt with a good helping of citrus. The flavor follows with that buttery malt, but the bitterness doesn’t lend itself to it as well as I would like. It comes off too crisp, but in a dry and bring manner. It could use a little sweetness to liven this up. ZR2Blazer (87) - Christiansburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle - Pours light amber with low white head. Aroma is nice, typical of IPA, not as strong as some, and very smooth. I think this is one of the less stronger IPA’s. It is very drinkable, a nice intro to IPA’s. Aftertaste has a little lingering carbonation taste. Hops in the aftertaste dissipates faster that most IPA’s. Overall nice brew. 09maso3 (72) - vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
amber with creamy white head. malty fruit aroma. Strong bitterness. They haven’t cut corners with this one. a real treat WVHouseofBeer (1069) - West Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2009
A very solid beer. Nice floral hop aroma, as well as a balanced taste of bitter floral hops and citrus.

Pours deep golden color, good head and balance, hops are prevelant, but not overpowering. Nice session for the hop lover zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 bottle. amber head but fades quickly with some lacing. Clear amber color with plenty of carbonation. bitter/hoppy aftertaste lingers feels a little soapy ... i want more aroma & body. pistolpete (203) - USA - MAY 14, 2009

Pours a decent head, looks a typical golden color, aroma is hard to describe, somewhat malty with a hint of hops, Citrusy and a bit fruitty, nice smooth aftertaste drseusszb200 (687) - Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2009
pours amber with a head that fades, and a lacing that lasts. tastes kind of bitter with a well balanced malt taste. after taste leaves my mouth tasting slightly hoppy.
