Clear gold/bronze. Dense white head. Floral and grassy hops and lightly sweet malt. Same flavors with lots of earthy bitterness, even a bit astringent. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Meh. kendallcoultas (1) - , Alabama, USA - JUL 21, 2008 does not count
This may become the only beer I drink from now on. I’m having a hard time understand some of these lower ratings. Please do yourself a favor a try this meticulously crafted masterpiece of an IPA: you will not be disappointed! lipscomb216 (80) - USA - JUL 21, 2008
Smells better than it tastes, and it doesn’t smell all that good to me. AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Fairly boring IPA. Light bodied and thin with soft hoppy and citrus aromas. Not very good considering all the awsome IPA’s that are out there. MartiniFiend (104) - Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a full head. Mild hop aroma. Medium palate. Flavor starts out hoppy with a slightly bitter finish. A good IPA for its price.

Bottle with Chip Portland 08.’
This 12 pack was dropped down a flight of stairs en-route to my flat. Chip picked it during an ice slush storm while visiting. This is a light bodied, low hop, low malt IPA. Its designed to be a flagship style beer for session consumption. Its pretty basic and understated. Not a sipper. You could rip this right out of the bottle.

12 oz. bottle from a sixpack from Jewel (New Lenox, IL). As far as IPAs go, this might not be a great example, but I thought this beer offered a lot in the way of a summer quencher that still had the hop presence that people here love. Pours a golden hue with hints of a darker color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. A largely floral nose that is a touch mild for an IPA. Initial is mostly empty of defining character up front, some hops maybe, that make way to a very pleasant back end with hoppy touches of citrus fruit and a bitterness presence on the roof of my mouth. No real malt presence comparable to other IPAs, but a refreshing finish that quenches. I’d say this beer is good and would definately buy again for its drinkability and it’s psuedo-IPA properties. Starter IPA, perhaps? hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2008
on tap at the celebrate Brooklyn concert-prospect park. Lightly hazy orange in color with a medium off white head. Aroma: faint floral hops with some clean caramel malt. Taste is subdued for an ipa- light pine and citrus with a light to moderate hop bitterness in the finish. Clean, but unassertive for an IPA. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2008
12oz. bottle, purchased as a single. Aroma of grapefruit and pine, some grassy and herbal notes, along with some very faint malt sweetness. Slightly hazy light-medium golden color with a very slight head. Flavor is malty and honeyish with touches of citric grapefruit, lemongrass and unwelcome traces of Pine-Sol here and there, finishing dry with a light-moderate dose of bitterness. Palate is thin and effervescent, body is medium. Pretty much fit my expectations to a T.
