gold pour with a decent white head.
Aroma is slightly grainy/grassy. some biscuity malt. light herbal hop.
flavour is earthy, slightly yeasty. Pretty good balance between hop/malt.
Bready-biscuity malt and an herbal hop that leaves a bit of a vegetative bitterness in the finish. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity, grassy hops, and sweet malt. Flavor is bready, spicy herbal hops, citrus, and earthy. nearbeer (5456) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2010
12 oz. Crystal clear, orange-tinted gold with a lasting eighth-inch of creamy foam. Faint nose of fresh orange, sweet earth and resin. Tastes of earthy caramel, tea leaf, and orange on front. Nice finish of resiny pine, bitterish green herb, oak, and lightly peppery citrus zest. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated (but a bit more than English style), barely watery so as to be a good session ale, and very well-balanced. Wow, the 7% is well hidden and this is a dangerously drinkable brew. This one is right on the mark for a great traditional IPA.

Clear orange, frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel and orange rind. Taste is mild bitterness and sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent golden bronze with a spotty-lacing coating of white head. Muted aroma of mild, grassy piny hops and a touch of lightly toasty pale malt. Starts with a light malty sweetness and some resiny hop bitterness with a light piny flavor before a drier, slightly oxidized finish. This may be a bit past its prime, but is still a drinkable IPA. alexsdad06 (10473) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head that left some lacing. The aroma was moderately sweet with some grapefruit citrus, earthy and pine hops. The flavor is more about the pale bready malts than any hops. What hops there are come across as earthy with some hints of grapefruit citrus. The finish is dry and somewhat bitter with no real standout character. This is not quite what I would expect with nothing to go on but the name.

Very lucent copper, thin but dense and lasting head, medium-full body, medium co2.BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2010
aroma: barnyard funk, a little bit of earthy hops.
T1= very funky barnyard, pale malt.
T2= still barnyard, nutty malt, co2, earthy resinous hops.
T3= fairly clean, some bitter hop resin.
the barnyard character makes it unique as an ipa, but imo, not in a good way.
Bottled on 020310. Poured orange with an off-white head that settle to a ring and left light lace. Aromas of subdue hops. The flavor found light hops, a caramel backing, and grass. Medium body and medium bitterness.
