Crushed with JakeBra and CaryTheDude. Nose is amazing. Huge, herbal, grassy, citrus hops. Flavor is a bit subdued, perhaps from the age of the beer. Great nonetheless.

WOW! Courtesy Paiste2002, thanks man! Great IPA. Another reason I wish I lived on the west coast. Aroma was perfect. Strong grassy hops fill the nose. One of the best aromas Ive encountered in a beer. Pour was perfect as well. A nice light gold with a one finger off white head. A great IPA is truly pale. Light in color and this is just that. Taste was also great. Strong in the hops with little malt to muddy the water. Strong bitter hops that dry the mouth with strong grassiness with just a hint of citrus. Decent carbonation. Please CA people. Send me more!!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Bottled 1/19/08. Was worried hops were dead. Huge nose, but not as much flavor. Still pretty damn good. Very, very thin bodied. Rerate, bottle 11-19-08. Same awesome nose. Flavor is much nicer, floral, bitter, and awesome. Absolutely a top IPA. Dug it much more fresh, naturally.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was cloudy dark gold with an off white head. The aroma was strong grapefruit with some peanuts and caramel. The taste was bitter grapefruit with peanut shells and burnt popcorn. I suppose I should try a bottled version, but this tap version had tons of burnt popcorn that threw off the entire package.

500 mL - thanks Tim at work. Pours a crystal clear orange, with a one-finger head. Tons of lace. Aroma earthy hops with some pine. Flavor is similar, pine and dirt hops. Plenty of bitterness, almost no malt to be found. Palate is thin and slightly watery, finishing dry. Overall its a drinkable, albeit unremarkable brew. If you’re going to have a bitter Russian River, I’d go with Pliny the Elder.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours a clear golden orange color. Very small, almost non-existent head. Does leave a little lacing. Aroma is sweet w/ some apricot and a very earthy mud smell. Not in a bad way though. Flavor is earthy and kind of dirty. A nice mild hop flavor. Gives a good bitterness on the tongue. A little bit of fruity character. Some floral too. Very perfumey. Seems like it has a little more body than the Pliny the Elder.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-gold. Big passionfruit and grapefruit husk and resin aroma. Hop driven palate all the way. Tropical fruit and conifer oils. Slightly soapy. Decent malt structure without being sweet or heavy. Crisp dry finish that is very bitter.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2008
bottled, many thanks to mwsf for bringing this to plzen. almost clear orange colour with a light off-white head. fantastic aroma of pine, mandarin, vanilla wafers, freshly-mown grass. plenty of grapefruit and pine flavours with some toffeed apple and a big burst of citric bitterness. excellent ipa!

JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Growler from the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a minimal white head. Super hopped aroma that is piney and citrusy with a nice malt back. Flavor is citrusy hop, then malt, then hop again on the finish. Amazing beer.

Kevin (2194) - Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2008
pour is orange gold with a nice lasting white head. the kind of aroma i can lose myself in. the hops are coming at me from all different directions. piney, yep, grassy, a bit, citrus, yeah that is there, herbal, well, maybe not, but this smells awesome. resiny malt flavor that worjks a great balance. the tightrope is walked with skill. citrus comes out strong but never dominates too much. a great fing beer.
