Tap. Light copper color. Really clear for an IPA. Mild hops in the nose. Flavor is way more APA than IPA. Balanced, but boring. I really wish I hadn’t paid five bucks for this, but it was the only thing at the resturant that wasn’t BMC.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2008
On tap - Light copper, small head, if any the bartender pored it off. Light, but strong, hoppy aroma. The beer is see-through and looks watery. Flavor is a pleasant moderate amount of hop, floral, crystal cold, and aromatic. Texture is a little sweet and medium bodied. Not many bubbles are present but the beer does have a moderate carbonation bite.

Poured from a bottle. Nice light golden color with a small-medium head. Nose was better than it tasted. A decent drinkable IPA, nothing special.

Merrill (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle, cold. Light amber with various beige head. Sweet aroma - like wet hops! Consistency very like an average APA with a very strong hop profile. Like a hoppy home-brew. Light alcohol, and thin watery flavor. Over-priced at 9.99 for a 6. A pleasant session beer without a lot to brag about but big hops. Perhaps more malt to fill it out and to balance the hops. I’ll happily drink it if it’s offered.

A pretty solid IPA, but not my favorite. It had notable smokey flavor and aroma. I prefer a fruitier IPA, but this was definitly a well crafted beer.

Bottle. Copper pour with medium tan head. Aroma of sweet hops. Taste of pine and citrus hops with a bitter finish. Gets a slightly tarnished rep but not too shabby.

vulcanmeister (306) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pours pale gold with nice creamy white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity and floral. More malty than I would expect with a dash of bitterness, pine, and spice. Lingering sharpness but flavor fades as well. Not bad but could be even better.

I’m kind of new to IPAs, which is probably why I rated this higher than most. Reminds me of a flowery Sierra Nevada. Tends to get a little flat toward the bottom of the bottle, but that just might be my hand making it warm and less tasty. A lovely drink for a day of grilling.

3.4
calgone (17) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. Light orange/copper color. Fruity aroma with pretty strong American hop aroma. Smells pretty good I think. Very easy to drink, perhaps too much so. Not extremely bitter. I think its a nice refreshing beer. Finishes a bit grassy.

3.3

Average IPA all around. Nothing unique, but still refreshing and easy to drink.
