LyndaNova (531) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2009
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear medium golden color with a minimal amount of alabaster bubbles, mostly around edges of glass. Aroma is initially of peaches and honey, with nice malts and subtle grassy hops. Taste is of nice malts well blended with grassy hops and a full fruity flavor. Ending is of hop and honey notes. Crisp, medium bodied, and with good carbonation.

Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2009
12oz bottle: Clear light orange with a thin white head, aroma has light oranges, spicy pine and peaches, starts and ends bitter with a long fruity aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear gold with some floaters. Aroma of grain, hops. Taste is not very hoppy and a litte sweet. Finish is mild. Not a very good IPA. Mouth is medium, finish is weak.

ethomson (56) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - APR 4, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Nice aroma of pennies, wheat and extra hops. You can smell the hops, but you can really taste them in this beer, they are overwhelming to the palate. Whoever says this is a weak IPA must just have a gnarly taste buds, because this one is pretty intense. Taste like most IPA’s with a less than inspiring bitter after taste, however I will give it this, it has less of a coppery tang than most IPA’s do. Still must have a thing for IPA’s to truly be able to enjoy. One and done for me.

larsniclas (7297) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2009
Bottled Golden with a small, white head. Some fruity, citric aroma. Medium bitterness with only some fruitiness. Pretty bland and average.

3.5
lancenelson (26) - Nebraska, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Pours clean, with little head. Very light aroma. I think this is the weakest IPA I’ve ever had, but that’s fine with me. I prefer subtle hops, and this delivers (by not delivering). Aftertaste is good with small , but flavorful bittering. A nice light-weight IPA.

3.3
Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Enjoyed via draft. Pours a medium to light copper. Nose is of American hops, perhaps Cascade and Centinnial? A little thin on the palate, and decidedly one-sided in term of the malt-hops ratio toward hops. Not a whole lot of character, either in terms of malt or hop flavor. Overall, certainly not with a "7.6" style percentile, but not one of the best American IPAs available.

2.9
snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle at some weird youtube art exhibition. Surprisingly low on hops for an IPA. Aroma is mostly sweet molasses with a hint of pine hops. Taste is much the same, very malty and earthy. Hops show up late in the finish.

2.9
soyorganic (307) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled on (12/17/08), pours light copper with skin flake floaties. Did not get anything in the aroma except some slighty sweet wheat like notes. The first impression is a watered down beer. Then hops kick in which is nice but it does not change or make up for the thin watered down feel. Alright I guess.
