Nice light amber color with decent thin head. I liked the balance of hops and malt, and the aroma had a nice floral touch to it. Not as in-your-face as a lot of other IPAs, but still very drinkable. This could be good on a hot summer day when youre grilling dinner in the back yard.

Pours a light copper color with a large head. the aroma is of strong hops, with grapefruit. this taste really watery, and corn tasting too, not much like an ipa. not a very good beer in my opinion

Bottle. Bottled on: 01/15/08. Pours a very pale copper with a small light-tan head. A fair grapefruit/pine aroma, only very subtle in a pilsner-ish kinda way. Thin and watery with a good bit of carbonation. Tastes like a combination pilsner/IPA too. Grainy...hints of corn...bitter grapefruit and orange rind...dry finish. Drinkable enough.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 10, 2008
Pours the color of a pilsner with a slight foamy head. Slightly citrusy on the nose, sweet pastry dough aroma. Doesnt pack much of a hop punch for an IPA, ends sweeter than bitter, not particularly impressive.

Real standard IPA. I was glad to find it in a relative beer wasteland but it served its purpose and now I am done with it.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Clear boring gold with a decent white head. Smells like pine-sol, cat urine, lemons, and grapefruits. Tastes very resiny with a long, drawn out finish. Heavy on the straight forward bitterness, and not the nuances of the hops. Decently balanced. Semi-full bodied. Meh.. Run of the mill.

Bottle. Nose is mild citrus hops. Clear yellow with a thin white head. Soft bitterness, Good mouthfeel.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a bubbly dark golden yellow, thick dense fluffy head. Earthy grassy aroma. Also some citrus and hop presence. Orange peal and grass, with a bitter hop finish. Not too flavorful or much hops. Palate is smooth a little thin. Meh.

jsquire (4270) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Golden color out of the 12 oz bottle, with a thin fizzy white head. Pine hop nose with hints of canned peas. Orange rind bitterness with lots of grass in the finish. I also get notes of celery, pennies, and those canned peas again. There isnt really enough balance here. Pretty average IPA.

12 oz bottle. This ipa wasnt that bad. The aroma is lighter than other IPAs Ive had, as is the taste.
