bottle: pours a clean spritzy yellow with a large white head. aroma is sweet and grainy with a touch of honey the hops are present and are earthy with some spiceness and pine. the flavour is a very pronounced hop that is piney and resiny it does have a sweetness in the background from the malt. finishes with more hop bitterness and very carbonated.

Pours a pale amber with a huge head. Theres a surprising level of carbonation in this beer. The aroma is nicely hoppy, a little peppery. The malt is sweeter than the dry hopped pale ale, but far from cloying. A definite candied fruit quality to the finish.

ajwilliams (132) - , Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a opaque orange with a huge foamy white head. Sweet honey and citrus aroma along with the floral hops. Taste is amazingly crisp and clean, full of floral hops and sweet malt. Some bready undertones. This is one of the best classic IPAs I have ever had. Very refreshing.

hopscotch (10903) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle... Murky yellow ale with a huge, fluffy, white head. Neverending, rocky retention. Fruity aroma of fresh, citric, resiny lupilin. Medium-bodied and astringent with prickly carbonation. Very well-balanced... moderately sweet; moderately bitter. Juicy, flavorful hop essence. Crisp, very coarse, dry finish. Thanks go out to growler for shipping this beer to me!

jrob21 (3558) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2009
A bonus from Jabic, thanks. Pours a cloudy orange and again, another beer with a head that just does not quit. A slightly weak grassy and then pine aroma. Flavor is caramel at fist that fades to a grapefruit bitterness and metallic finish. Well balanced and rounded.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Mostly clear straw blonde, capped by a large frothy eggshell-white head. Effervescent. A lot of floaties in the bottle. Intensely aromatic, flowers, passionfruit, hop oils. Initial toasty notes, a la 60 minute. Moderate bitterness. Perhaps lighter in body than what Im used to, though I love these IPAs built for drinkability. A little bit too fluffy in the mouth. Overall, Im honestly a tad disappointed after the kickass aroma, yet this still is quite a tasty and very drinkable IPA. Goes in the "worthy" category. (I can see how Double Trouble might have grown out of this. Interesting IPA.)

Rerate, 3-4-09.
Im very surprised, but it seems the aroma has dropped off considerably in the last ten days between bottles. Overall perhaps more in line with what I would typically expect in an IPA. Not as overly effervescent now. This bottle would get something like 7 3 7 3 15, 3.5.

Tap at Capones. Aroma huge with citrus and grapefruit hops. Flavor lots of bitter citrus juice with some spicy hop notes and sourdough malt. Lovely.

Bottle received in trade, thanks to crazynelson. White fluffy giant head, golden yellow color that gives of scents of grass, citrus and sweetness. Taste is both hoppy and refreshing.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Appearance: A dull, light yellow with a 1 inch sudsy head. The sudsy head leaves behind a good deal of lace. Aroma: Grass, yeast, and a little bit of citrus and pineapple. Taste: Bitter hops, a quick hit of citrus and pine, and a bready funky finish. Mouthfeel: Full bodied and heavy. Very fizzy. Overall: I am usually not high on harvest ales, but this one was very flavorful and refreshing.
