Slightly hazy amber. Buttered toast nose. Toasty, earthy palate. Moderate bitterness, limited hop expressiveness. I shrug my shoulders. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear darkish orange color. Head was one finger high and off white with good retention and lacing. The aroma and flavor are malt dominated. Lots of burnt toffee and caramel with a touch of fruit. Dry and moderately bitter on the tongue. Resiny hops come out as well, but are not center stage. thebaldwizard (1365) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Very light citrus aroma. Golden brown body with a huge head. Medium palate. Sweet flavor up front is quickly replaced by a ncie bitterness and a slight funky taste. Not a bad organic. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2007
Aroma is of white grape fruit.Pours a medium copper with a medium off white head.Got some nice bitter hops in the flavor.Medium to full mouthfeel with a bitter finish. barleyPops (1183) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2007
aroma was a mix of floral and piney hops. the pour was well... interesting. mostly foam, so I was concerned the bottle was infected, but it seemed to smell and even taste OK. flavor was muted hops and just a bit of caramel malt. certified organic may be important to some, but I’ll take anyone else’s IPA over this.

Nice pour, foamy white head. Smooth and well balanced with noticeable malts. Tastes like a brewery fermentation room smells. Mild bitterness for an IPA. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2007
(Bottle) Organic beer blind tasting at Brouwers’s in Seattle, March 3, 2007. White head and deep orange body. Nose of milky, eggy tones with a pine hopped front. Tart pine hops mellows into a medicinal maltedness in the flavours finish. Okay. Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Golden orange with a coarse head and a fine lace, both white. Medium-bodied, with faint citrus aroma and taste. Moderately hopped for an IPA. A very good organic IPA - surprising in fact. I’ve been unimpressed with organic IPAs in the past. DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle from Saarlander via Mystery Swap 2.0. Turbid deep orangy pour with 2-finger off-white head and great, long-lasting lacing. The aroma is big tangerine, pineapple, mango, orange marmalade, hops, and bready malt. Complex, well balanced palate, with flavor notes of breadt caramel malt, tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, and some berry finishing notes. I liked this one a lot. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade (Myster Swap v2) from Saarlander (thanks!). This one poured all head - I recieved it in the mail this morning, but its been sitting in the fridge for over 9 hours. Settled down into a medium and cloudy amber color. Aromas of floral, husky, and citrus. Tastes of oranges, light caramel, grass, with a grapefruit bitter finish. Medium bitter finish.
