Drake (13140) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours crystal clear golden with voluminous head and good lacing. Fruity and floral hop aroma. Smooth taste, but a bit thin on flavor. Hops are a little subdued for an IPA.

intresting ipa. it was dark in the bar but the beer appeared to have an orange hue with a good white head that lasts. the aroma was very citrus, i thought maybe they had but a lemon in it was so pronounced. lacks the depth of a really godd ipa but has a nice malty sweet traste and slightly bitter finish.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle - Pours an orangish golden in color with a good head. Hoppy but not over the top. Finish is dry and clean. Nothing outstanding to note, but not a bad beer either.

drpimento (3276) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Decent stand up IPA. Not too citrusy, which is fine with me. Nice orangish golden color with a some depth. Hoppy malty nose. Nice finish. Had this on draft, very fresh, at Bodega Brew Pub, downtown La Crosse, WI.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Draft. Body-very nice looking IPA-1/2 inch lasting foamy head with nice lacing, dark honey body. Nose-very clean PNW hops that is the embodiment of a good mild PNW, clean hop aroma, not sticky, not sweet, not muddled, very fresh and expressive. Taste-what a let down after that wonderful nose. Thin, dishwater, flat hop profile, not too sticky or sweet, good medium bitter, peanut shells, lots more hop in the bitter and aroma than the flavor. Overall thin, bland, and unimpressive.

Good orange colour with a white head that discipates moderately quickly. Has a good hoppy taste and aroma.

CIPS514 (77) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Im pretty sure this is the one I had. It had a good colour and decent head. Sweet aroma that was well fragrant with hops. The taste was rich with hops and crisp.

portermax55 (118) - Canterbury, Connecticut, USA - OCT 22, 2007
12oz. bottle into pilsner glass. Pours a cloudy gold color with a light white head that dissipates quickly. Strong aromas of hops, mint and hints of citrus fruit. Flavor is very bitter with hints of lemon and a slightly sweet citrus finish. Mouthfeel is very thin and little to no carbonation involved. Could have been better.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Slightly hazy dark golden bronze with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of slightly earrthy, resiny grapefruit hops and pale malt. Body has decent fullness and light pale malty sweetness but the flavor and hoppiness dies toward a blander finish. Pretty drinkable, but needs a bigger hop presence.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2007
light in color, strong head, nice initial flavor,fruit,plums, hops, evergreen. Too watery to be an IPA.Not as bad as some make out--but not great either.
