16oz draft 12/07(Sharps Roaster SEA)-A light amber body with a nice two finger head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and slight grapefruit. A light to medium body with a taste of hops and a strong bitterness and dryness on the back end along with a funky taste. A little weak for an IPA.

22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a thin off - white head. Mild smell of grapefruit and piney hops. Medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is almost all grapefruit and flowery hops here. A slight taste of caramel sweetness is beaten down by the big hop flavors.
A long finish is all bitter hops.
Not a favorite of mine but not bad, either.

[1109B-20080217] Tap @ Elysian Fields (Seattle, WA). Hoppy grass and simple yeast aroma. Clear, light orange brown with a quick foamy white head. Grassy bitter grains flavour with a yeasty finish. Bitter medium body. Great blend. (7/3/8/4/17) 3.9
Bottle. Orange body with a small white head. The aroma is hop forward and toasty with some pine needle notes. The flavour is quite hoppy and fairly standard with orange and resin notes. A well balanced, drinkable IPA.

Tasted in December 2007. Thanks tiggmtl.
Bottle from kenb, I believe. Pretty nice IPA, although nothing stood out here. Fairly hoppy and clean tasting, but it lacked some freshness. Probably should have been consumed a couple months ago.

poured a slightly cloudy amber with a thick white head. Aroma has a bit of hops, malt, and an alley. Flavor is similar with citrus added. Almost has a skunked flavor. Creamy and slightly bittersweet. Decent but odd for an IPA. robinvboyer (4674) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2007
Light hoppy aroma, some slight pine notes. the flavour is VERY well balanced between the hops, and the malt. One of themore balanced IPA’s i’ve had. I’m more of a hop bomb IPA fan.but this is extremely drinkable, dangerous even. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Ratebeer Christmas in Oshawa, December 2007. Golden orange body with a small white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with light resin and citrus is a very nice change of pace for the evening. Flavour has an odd overall impression, something different about
the resin, and grapefruit notes that are just a bit astringent. Average palate.

light flavored strong fruity notes with a copper colour and medium head. enjoyable flavor Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Richmond "industry" gathering, and my unintentional 1700th as I blew past that mark without even noticing during the event. Medium orange amber, light haze. Aroma was a nice blend of earth, floral, and citric hops. Flavor matched, and was an almost perfect balance of caramel malt and earth, floral, and citric hops. Very well done.
