Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle, from Henry’s. $6.50 a six pack. This is a new release, apparently taking the place of Stargazer. Looks nice, smells nice, but the flavor is rather dull. It’s hoppy, but it lacks the brightness and fruitiness I crave in an IPA. For whatever reason, Karl Strauss bottled beer has never impressed me like their draft beers. My guess is that this is really good on tap. As it is now, it’s just OK. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle from Snojerk321. Pours a nice copper color and disappearing head. Nose is citrus and a touch of caramel. On taste, I get a bit of an earthy taste with a lighter hop character than expected. Touch of metal as well. Overall, this isn’t a bad IPA, actually pretty decent. IrishBoy (4200) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Draft at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Nose is pine and citrus hops. Lightly hazy amber with a medium beige head. Flavor is light bitterness which lasts to the finish. Not bad for Disneyland. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 5, 2009
clear golden with a fizzy white head. Sweet grapefruit and light hop aroma. Caramel citrus and pine taste. mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Pretty solid little IPA. Good bitter flavor from start to finish. Decent maltiness as well.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Crisp hoppy and mango fruity aroma. Dry flavoured, light malt presence and a lot of mango to grapefruity flavours.

bottle thanks to the tick loving bhensonb. poured a nice amberish gold with a soapy white head and some lace. aroma had a strong malt backbone and maybe a bit of cereal or biscuit and the smallest hint of pine. flavor was grass, alcohol (like cheap vodka), pine and some caramel. medium body with medium carbonation. thanks bill for yet another step to 1000.
