cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Quality offering from Redhook, relaxed mild IPA with enough hop presence to satisfy. Pleasant hop aroma, strong but not overdone. Light copper color with an inch thick head and layers of sticky lacing. Medium bitterness on the palate, overall mouthfeel is a touch too light for my liking. The flavor isnt anything off the charts, but like most standard IPAs it is well balanced and the hops are allowed to compliment a solid malt content instead of fighting with one another. I wouldnt be able to distinguish this one from many of the countless others, but its still enjoyable.

Rex_Remes (183) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 (12 oz bottle, 6.2% ABV, Virginia USA) AROMA: medium hops, green, fresh bread. APPEARANCE: slightly cloudy, medium straw yellow, good visible carbonation, light head, some residual oily lacing. TASTE: solid/moderate hops and malt taste upfront, some cloves, pine/resin, tobacco, touch of anice on the finish. PALATE: crisp and sparkly upfront, slight crwmy texture, dry hoppy finish. OVERALL: decent beer, not super hopped as many craft IPAs but ok hop flavor and bitterness. More standard ale-like instead of classic IPA. Respectable ale that would be a solid every day beer with decent body and flavor.

One of the least hoppy IPAs I have tried. Poured well with a nice head. The rest rather uninspiring.

mahkus (133) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Thin head and light colour with quite a few bubbles.Not a very strong aroma or taste for an IPA.

Brewhemia (285) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2016
Interesting candy sweet aroma (synthetic apple and pear and gummibears). When swirled around some grassy aroma apears as well, but still its not a very nice ipa aroma in my opinion. The taste is light sweet and moderate to low bitter for an ipa. Not much ale fruitiness though some in the finish which is quite ok. Still not a great ipa I think.

HenryParadise (2) - New York, USA - DEC 8, 2016 does not count
Bitter and a little one dimensional. I enjoyed this beer much more once it was poured into a glass.

gyllenbock (8572) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle from Thirsty Craft Beer Shop, Singapore. Golden with a large head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, some hops and cookies. Similar taste. Sweetish and with a fairly bitter finish.

wilnatp (681) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Can. In a world of over-the-top IPAs this has no place. However, there is good hoppy notes on the nose and a nice hint of bitter taste, without a palate destroying disaster occurring when you reach for a second.

Tessic (1113) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
This IPA poured a medium Amber colour with a quick living, off white head. Scents include a little citrus, grass and a bit of hay. Little lacing. First swig was quite bitter with nice citrus hop flavour. A little caramel and juniper. Finish is quite bitter with hop flavour lingering forever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
