Man, not even close to Burning River. Yes it is dry hopped but man is this very average. An initailly small weak head with a clear body. Medium aroma, mainly acidic hops. Body is light with hops adding nothing at this point, no malts. Very average for this brewer. Disappointing. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber orange color. Grassy, oily sweet sugar hop nose, very nice smelling. Properly bitter, nice and biting on the lips and tongue, with crisp, fresh grassy, even tinny, but in a good way. Very enjoyable, fresh, properly hoppy IPA. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2006
This starts with a large, three dimensional, sticky white head over a brilliantly clear gold body.
The aroma is fruity citrus.
Subdued sweet flavor. The hops never really burst out in this in either the flavor or finish. Needs more malt and hops to go with the top IPAs. tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Much fruitier than other IPA’s, not as bitter, but very enjoyable. A light to medium body, love the surprisingly strong fruit and piney flavor, a dry finish. A fine beer. chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 The bitterness bites you on the nose right out of the gate and doesn’t let go ’til you cross the finish line. Quite fruity and hoppy. A well-balanced great IPA-- very surprised it doesn’t rate higher on this site drinks this bitter do not appeal to all.

Clearish straw-colored body, thin off-white head. Soapy, earthy, piney hops nose, with biscuit and spice. Rather strong soapy body with flower petals and pine, sweet breads, and a long, bitter, spicy finish. Cerealy, a touch nutty. Pretty good IPA. f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2006
On tap @ brewpub. Pours a copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, with a hint of fruit. Taste is light for the style, not a huge body and not overwhelming hop presence, which makes it drinkable IMHO. A bit too hoppy for to be a pale ale, but not as extreme as other IPA examples. It would be a refreshing outdoor brew, to me! TChrome (1472) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Yum. Beer pours dark golden color with a retained off white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops and quite spicy. Flavor is really nice with juicy grapefruit and wonderful spiciness. This is IPA goodness. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Sampled at State College BrewExpo. Golden amber clear with thin head. Nice fruity caramel aroma with some grapefruit and brown sugar. Really nice taste, smoothly balanced between sweet malts and almost-harsh bitterness. Good grapefruity and juicy hops taste. Medium carbonation with little burn. stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2006
A decent IPA. Pours clear light copper. Rocky white head. Good lacing. Piny hops, with some malt and a little fruit. Ok bitter aftertaste.
