Hazy yellow gold amber hue, with a white head, yeasty, some flowery hop leafiness notes, with a toasty grainy malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, caramelized, biscuity malt character, with a floral hop grassiness note, underlaying some citrus, lemony accents, leading towards a fruity, hop bittering finish.

Gusher alert!!!! Ive heard this one was going to be a disaster so I pretty much froze the bitch. No effect. Amber color with HUGE fluffy off white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and pine. More citrus character than anything. Finished crisp with an alcohol bite.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle at the second Doubletree tasting, provided by Zinister. Thanks! Pours a deep amber with a nice off-white head and an aroma of peach, earthy grass, and a slight hint of sour honey. Bitter, biting hops greet the tongue with grapefruit and weak pine rounding out the taste. Full and coating mouthfeel. Great start to the tasting.

Bomber. Pours a translucent burnt amber with a 3 finger light tan head that leaves average lacing. The aroma makes it known that this will be a malty IPA as it lacks the really hoppy nose that Ive come to associate with American brews. Taste is a a mix of grapefruit and medicinal hops, quickly transferring into a great maltiness which includes a wonderful caramel backbone. Finish is grapefruit hops, and semi drying. This has one of the best mouthfeels of any IPA Ive had in a long time, creamy with soft carbonation. Very well balanced.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Nov. 2006 - Reddish amber color, beautiful with nice foamy head and solid lacing. Grapefruit and floral nose reflected the flavor as well. Nice sweet maltiness balances a very bitter finish dominated by grapefruit. Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Thanks to grandet for this beer. Poured at the 1/28 Houston tasting. Reddish-brown amber pour with a foamy tan head. Nose of fresh hops with malt...and a touch of metallic. Flavor is metallic hops with a nice malty backbone...like a rich amber with a nice bitter hoppy finish. Good mouthfeel with a medium bodied creamy finish. Solid IPA

22 oz bottle shared by Zinister, 1st bottle sampled at the 1/28 Houston tasting. Pour is clear reddish-golden with some small carbonation bubbles. Small off-white head. Aroma of some muted, musty hops and some nice maltiness. Taste has great balance, good malt backbone with nice grassy, resin hops. Thanks for sharing this one Mike.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2008
A very good overall tastey IPA. Lots of fruity and very well rounded hop aroma and taste. Good usage of hops, clean, non metallic and good aftertaste. Citrus fruits, balanced beer.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Bomber, thanks to TomDecapolis! Pours clear bright amber with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of toffee, fruit and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Lightly sweet start to the taste, but the hops jump up in the finish with grapefruit pith and a woody dryness.
