Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is definitely lacking. Taste is stale hops. Not impressed. DalzAle (2040) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Tap. Slightly foggy yellow pour, some hops aroma and little head. Flavor was not you usual IPA, funky farmhouse flavor, bitter hops and finished fruity and dry. Decent, and could see this one growing on me as I finished the glass. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl: Poured copper with a white head. Aroma, citrus, caramel, some fruits. Flavor, citrus and grassy hops, some herbal notes as well, pale malts. not bad. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2008
pours a medium golden with a white foamy head.
Aroma is musty floral hop. popcorn, grainy malt.
Flavour is grainy/corn like pale malt, hop is grassy.
Not unpleasant. Certainly different from a lot of IPA’s that I’ve had recently. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle shared by Eric. Aroma is bitter grass, some citrus, and caramel malt. Pours light amber with a small white head. Taste is bitter grass, some garden weeds, and a stale biscuit malt. Mouthfeel was bitter and dry despite all the malt taste. All in all, this had the makings of an inbalanced and old IPA.

Light yellow with a good head. Nose quite hoppy, plenty of pine, some malty sweetness. Flavor is bracingly hoppy and spicy, big pine, decent malts for balance. A bit thin, but still quite nice. Stine (1801) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 On tap at the Muddy Pig. The pour is yellowish, marginally cloudy orange. Aromas are odd but interesting: butterscotch, vanilla and mint with a touch of bready malt. Tastes of some acidic citrus - apricot, orange - with a little floral character. Kind of sours a little as it warms; certainly best consumed very cold.

A resinous pine-forward IPA with a pronounced sugary-sweet backside. Not a quaffer because it leaves a residual sweetness in your mouth instead of an inviting dryness. jmohno (1679) - Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Hazed orange, hop haze,yeast haze. Some light frothy head. Strong citrus grassy aroma. Seems a lot like some noble hops alot character like a grassy skunky pilsner. Full mouth foamy feel, lot of toasted pale malts with some sweetness. Citrus tart. Pretty dry toasty finish. Strong citrus grassy hops and bitter/tartness. Probably too much citrus/grassy for my kind of ipa I go for. ttoadee (1659) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Cloudy orange pour, decent white head. Nose is grapefruit/citrus. bittersweet. Middle is sweet malt and hop flowers. Finish is somewhat bitter.
