Dank hop nose. Minimal head but good carbonation. Hop forward but nice bitterness not overwhelming and solid malt core. Lingering grapefruit finish. N 3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2011
buttered, goopy tropical fruit chew nose. sharp carbonation, rough malt, nutri-sweet, bubble gum and toothpaste flavor. horrid. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery amber, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing, minimal carbonation.   Fruity nose, pale citrus, soft hop.   Has a bit of powdery sugar in there as well.   Sweet citrusy hops on the tongue.   Not terribly hoppy, seems a bit more than a Pale Ale but not quite an IPA.   Smooth, fairly clean, does finish rather quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Yeah, its like a sweet citrus zest up front, followed by some sweet hop tea.   Tasty, and I bet more interesting on draught.   Would get again, but I would bet that if it were slightly more hoppy with a bit of floral and this thing would be a stunner. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber beer with a low dark cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light summer fruit flavor with light pine and light caramel. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Grapefruit and caramel linger. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Cloudy amber color; no head, even with a vigorous pour. Carbonation is very mild; might have gotten a bottle with a bad seal (or just a bad bottling). Malt flavors are decent; bolder than most IPAs. Lots of toasted toffee and a bit of caramel. Hops are OK; just a little one dimensional and restrained. Lightly herbal and flowery with a mild to moderate bitterness level. OK IPA, just not very exciting to me.

Aroma – Good malt with nice hops aroma. leeamcbrideiii (1) - USA - OCT 1, 2010 does not count
Appearance – Amber in color, Clear, with a thin head.
Flavor – Good amount of malt slight spice and hops added made this very tasty.
Palate – Nice Dry finish with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall – A nice IPA with good flavors. Good start for these new brewers.
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Darker in color than most ipas. Easy drinking, perhaps too easy. I miss the piney, hoppy punch. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle: Pours a pale gold with light white head and lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy with some crisp papery cascade hops and a little bit of the earthy kind I don’t want to name. The flavor is light and balanced, very little malt flavor or toastiness. A little one dimensional but the hops are fresh. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Light citrus hop aroma. pours a cloudy orange-copper, thin white head. Fairly chewy malts. Hops are understated, finish is kind of watery. Not too bad though. beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Not the hoppiest of IPA’s. Pretty malt forward. Hops take second place. Easy to drink. Good example of low bitter ale.
