Fragrant tantalizing Cascade hop aroma, actually bolder then I expected from Redhook. Taste a pine tree was literally shoved into my mouth,malt backing can’t actually be tasted,but it has to be there,because the hops don’t overwhelm,a very satisfying bitter finish. I am stunned by this low score,sure its down one notch as far as intensity ,but for a hophead,its almost a perfect session brew

Smells hoppy with notes of burnt sugar. This golden pour tasted hoppy, bitter and metallic. It left a nasty dry metal flavor in my mouth.

Had this beer on 2/24/2007. Aroma is a fresh hop scent. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and nice tight head. Taste is crisp and hoppy. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down with an easy crisp feel. Finish comes on with a mild malt flavor, a nice hop flavor and even hop bitterness. Overall Iits a nice hoppy Pale but not the best I have ever had.

hazy gold with small, white head. Mild fruity aroma - tastes a little stronger than it smells, but is still pretty lackluster for an IPA. I definitely prefer a Pale Ale with more flavor & punch, though I suppose this makes it a little more drinkable from a volume/endurance standpoint....

Rated 8/26/07. 12 oz. bottle courtesy of ’Naka. Golden Color and Floral hop nose. Malt start, bit of corn, then a small dose of hoppiness. No real after taste. Just blase. No repeats on this one

Smells lightly of citrus hops. Taste is weak citrus hops, like the smell. Not bad, but could be more flavorful.

SavageElvis (134) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours out a hazy light gold with a soft hop aroma. Taste is also light with alcohol present. Mouth feel a little thin and watery on the palate. Lots of better IPA’s out there.

I’ve had plenty of this at the E-Club at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore, MD. $5 pitcher, $1.50 pints. Nice light hoppiness to it, not a super heavy IPA, but one that is better then drinking bmc or the sorts.

IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
IPA rating #100; bomber from Bottle Barn; nose of flowery and piney hops; slightly hazed dark gold with a small off-white head; flavor of piney hop bitterness; drinkable IPA, but nowhere near great!

Pours a golden color into the glass with minimal white head. The aroma is citrusy and piney, but the taste is just alright. It seems like a super safe approach to an IPA and a bit lacking in malt. That being said, if you wanted to sit around and drink it for a while, it would be light enough to drink a bunch of.
