Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Bottled. Lovely pour.. slightly hazy medium amber with a well-retained, short, sticky cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, drier floral notes and orange zest upfront with a faint hint of berries.. light fruity notes and pale malts supporting. The flavor had bready notes and light fruit supporting moderate bitterness around with orange zest and floral as the primary components.. finished with some spicy notes and sticky pale malts. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. OK flow, but it got caught up a bit on the back. All in all a good one.

12 oz. bottle. Another beer from jake65. Pours a deep yellow with a 1/2" white head and rings of white lace. Nose is floral hops and some grain. Palate is thin & dry w/average carbonation. Flavor was hops with a hint of grains and honey. Lingering bitter finish.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2008
bright gold with a kiss of orange. fluffy white head is ideal. soft grassy hop aroma. summery. light bodied with clover honey notes and a bright young floral hop shine. bitterness rests back on the throat.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Sampled at 99 Bottles in Federal Way. Grassy aroma. Sweet grass and hay flavor profile with just a hint of hop-citrus bite. A very middle of the road IPA. Although the info here indicates 6.5% alcohol, the in-store literature read 5.5%.

stchloe (1104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Instead of a normal bitter hop profile, the combination comes across sweet and a bit of citrus.

Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12oz bottle. Light floral aroma. Copper body with decent head. Flavor is like an ipa mostly citrus but body is thin and just didn’t have that cripness on the palate. Decent brew.

3.5
highibus (823) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Pours a clear copper with thin white head. Some decent lacing left on top. Aroma is not very noticable. A little spicy nose. Flavor is better, a little malt sweetness in the background but nice hop spiciness and finish. Decent IPA.

3.4
bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle, Pours clear light orange with a fading off-white head. Aroma of tangerines and cotton candy. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Toffee, bread and citrus taste with a earthy/floral finish.

3.3
Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Station--a golden amber-orange body with a medium white head. Nose of citrus hops and sweet caramel malts. Sticky, bready, chewy, and quite enjoyable. Decent bitterness is finish. Not the best IPA, but far from bad.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Golden amber color with a good head on it’s shoulders. Sweet malt aromas w/ citrus rind. Medium nectar w/good carbonation. This is a very mild specimen w/ gentle bitterng and caramel on finish.
