POured a dark yellow color with a white head. Aroma was a lttle bit of spicey hops, some malt, a bit weak. Flavor was also a bit watery, but a nice hop balance form wat was there.

Bottle. Pours coppery orange with thing head. Smells piney, grassy, citrusy and fruity. Tastes sweet and floral, followed quickly by some citrus, then piney/bitter. Some malts present. Excellent blend of flavors.

Pours gold into a shaker. Head quickly recedes to hug rim leaving sickly lacing. Strawberries and resin aromas. Crisp with sour hops from front to back.

Nice IPA with medium head. High lacing. A definate hoppy aroma with an acholol scent. Not peppery, with a strong hoppy taste. No aftertaste, that is not too bitter.

I’m not a huge fan of the IPA’s but this beer is not too bad. Golden color. Average sized head. Great lacing. Sweet hoppy aroma. Flavor has a good mixture of sweet caramel and hops.

Im not sure why I keep looking forward to trying red hook beers. I guess their blond ale tricked me... This was an eh IPA. There was not a good malt background to build the hop aroma and bitterness upon and the hoppiness itself was less than expected with a metal taste to it.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Quite possibly the worst IPA that’s ever been my experience to drink. Very little hoppiness or citrus flavor or anything that I’ve come to know and love from the style. This just is not good at all.

One of my first forays into the wonderful world of IPAs, but just now getting around to rating it. Ok aroma with some citrus notes. Light orange with a thin off-white head. Flavor starts off malty but gives way to a fairly bitter finished. Decent balance, but a but too much hop in the finish for me. All in all, a good beginner micro, but there is certainly better out there.
