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.

2.6
estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle. Light amber body, medium fluffy off-white head, not much nose. Not much flavor, a bit of sweet malt, light bitterness, kind of a nasty finish. Not very good.

shigadeyo (3764) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2007
9/29/2007: Grand Teton Sweetgrass India Pale Ale pours a mostly clear bright orange. It has a mild to moderate level of carbonation (fine/tiny bubbles) with a frothy off-white crown that leaves some light lacing. The aroma has a sweet toffee maltiness with some citrus hoppiness. The flavor contains toasted malt and honey malts with a mild to moderate amount of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This beer has a medium-light to medium body and is smooth on the palate. Sweetgrass is a good, even IPA.

12 fl. oz. bottle from my parents. Rating #132 for this beer...

3.7
tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 Fresh, though not too strong citrusy hop scent. Thin body with some malt and a crisp finish. Better for drinking 2-3 at a sitting than some other superior IPAs.

3.2
shadey (2148) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 14, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade. Pour is a darker melon color with a nice head of white cream lace. Aroma is pretty mild. Citrus and a touch of malty sweetness. Flavor is actually pretty creamy. The floral hops appear. Smooth body. Nice session IPA.

3.3
bhensonb (15603) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Aroma of pale malt with citrusy hop. It’s all kind of light. Amber gold color with a frothy white head that laces as it collapses. Thin to medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. The flavor is mildly malty, with floral/citrus hop. The finish isn’t dry, but it isn’t sweet. Floral notes abound, and there is enough bitterness to satisfy. It’s really good stuff.
