Another fine IPA to add to the list of favorites! I still think I favored Rogue’s Brutal Bitter, (not nessasarily an IPA), but this was a very smooth beer with great upfront hoppiness, and a thich aftertaste that was neither too bitter or sweet.

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. Clear amber with a scant head that quickly becomes a ring of foam. Minimal aroma, but some oranges, grass and tea can be found. Tastes of fruit and leather. A bit watery in places, with a dry finish. Not sure what went wrong here, but this is not my favorite IPA by a long shot. Hope I’re rating the right beer here. Looks like it has been retired for several years, which would explain the taste.

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. **NOTE**: This review applies to the "Liberty" DH version. Not sure if I have the right parent beer, honestly. Gold, maybe a little bit of ruby, with a tiny little head and less lace. Bready yeasty nose. Palate’s all sweet malt and raspberries. Poor palate. Gonna get blamed for all kinds of wrongs. To be avoided.

Bronze with good head.Light green hop nose and flavor throughout...........

Beautiful bronze/brass beer with a perfect head. Slight chinook/cascade hop aroma and flavor with a small, but constant and unrefined bitterness. This is a rather light bodied IPA. While easy drinking, it is unexceptional and does not distinguish itself among northwest IPA’s.

Very Good Ipa, reddish in color, grapefruit/cirus aroma with floral hints, citrus flavor really comes through, great example of chinook and cascade working together! Great bitterness, flavor and aroma, perfectly hopped ale!
