omhper (25119) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Aroma of lychee abd canteloupe. Sweet and medium bodied with chewy caramelly malt character. Firm and vital with restrained citric hoppiness. Finisehs with medium bitterness. Aiming more towards balance than most American IPAs.

3.4
BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottled. Pours clear orange-ish brown colour with a nice white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and yeasty bread dough. Very gentle hop flavour and some nice, short bitterness in the finish. Not a complex IPA but definitely easy to drink.

RedSox2004 (1895) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Poured a cloudy orange with a generous head that reduced to a thin layer and left nice lacing. Nice hoppy aroma with biscuits and lemon evident. Bready malts played off the hops to produce a well-balanced taste. Included flavors of bread and citrus fruits - lemons mostly. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A very good beer.

Skyview (6056) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Purchased a single 12-oz bottle at the brewery, southeast of Victor, Idaho. Pours a hazy golden pale brew with a lumpy off-white head that has some good retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of well-balanced bread dough malt and grapefruit zest hop character with a light flowery hop scent. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of sour dough bread malt and a light grapefruit and lemon zest flavor. Finish is more like a light American Pale Ale than an India Pale Ale, Aftertaste has a mild bitterness with some flavors of sweet bread dough and grapefruit zest.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottles; pours a cler burnt gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grass, and flowers. Pleasantly surprised with this one, since admittedly I only bought it because it was from a state I had never rated. Flavor was straightforwad and pretty tasty. Sweet caramel malt with grassy and citrus malt. A good sessionable beer. Creamy mouthfeel.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a dark golden color with a foamy white head. Light hoppy aroma, with doughy malts in there as well. Sweet caramel in the taste as well. Light, crisp hop notes throughout. More like an ESB in my opinion. A pretty average beer all around.

2.9
TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle from GenoG. Thanks Adam! Pours an almost clear golden with no head and a little lace. Nose has some floral, purfumey hops notes, but is muted for the most part. Flavor features a light dosing of floral hops and a nice sweet malt balance, but lacks complexity. Mouthfeel is smooth, watery, and bland. An easy drinking, unexciting IPA.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Light gold with a thin velvetty head and nice long lasting lace. Aroma is floral and perfumey with some biscuity malt. Flavor is sweet and biscuity like an APA with a dry floral finish. A little fruity as well, but no really bitter. Kind of boring actually.

2.7
hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
thanks to mreusch- bottle- clear yellow orange color, nice looking head, aroma of sweetness, sugar, not much else. Flavor also lacking. Drinkable, but not very exciting or memorable.
