Bottled. Poured rather thick medium amber with a ridiculous amount of sediment throughout. The aroma picked up redder fruits and honey with a hint of caramel.. some pine and leafy notes around, but not a whole lot of ’em. The flavor found redder fruits (some tart skin and some meaty sweetness) at the core, with the tartness extending outward.. light, grainy pine bitterness was the most evident hop character.. more sour than it was bitter. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. grainy.. balance was OK, I suppose, but it wasn’t a great brew. bhensonb (15235) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Pours hazy dirty brown with a beige head. Strong resin aroma. Losts of resin/grapefruit over mild roast caramel. Quite bitter. Better than average IPA. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2010
On tap at the brewery. A decent IPA with lots of carmel malt and a good dose of hops. I found the finish kind of harsh, but generally solid. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Tap @ Estes Park. Cloudy copper with a small head. No hops in the aroma, just some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly sweet and malty very light hop bitterness and citrus taste. This one felt unbalanced and need more hops. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Pours copper with a faint ring of bubbles. Smells of mild citrus, caramel. Tastes of caramel with some sweet citrussy notes and an earthy finish.

Pours very dark and opaque. No head or lacing whatsoever. Nose is bland hops and faint citrus. Taste is a bit better than the smell, but tastes watered down, which I guess increases drinkability! Glad I only bought one bottle for $1.69. Would not buy again. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2010

draft at the brewpub - Pours cloudy copper and has a nice grapefruit hops aroma. The flavor has good, citrusy hop bitterness and well balanced sweet malt in there too lending a medium body to this not very complex but very drinkable IPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber orange with light, fluffy head. Nose is hops and sharp citrus. Taste is floral sticky thick sweet to light hoppy bitterness. Not a bad IPA at all. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 2, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a fluffy white head.
Hoppy aroma of citrus and grapefruit. The flavors started with a flash of caramel malt followed immediately by the citrus and floral hops. Not the big hoppy beer i was looking for but it was alright.
