12oz bottle poured a slightly hazy gold color with a small off white head and nice lacing. Aroma was a musty hop with some carmel malt. Taste is pretty mild for an IPA with not much bitterness and a decent malt profile. Overall more of a pale than an IPA in my opinion. cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle -- Pours a golden yellow color with a very small, white head. Lots of citrus and floral smells. Tastes a bit of grapefuit. Very nice hop balance. Very enjoyable beer. bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2006
I was not expecting that much from this but once I poured it the hoppiness was instantly attractive. Aroma had some citrus and I also got a little floral. Must be some centennial because this has a similar aroma and taste to two hearted. Flavor was nice but a little thin on the body. Very good beer. dwyerpg (6497) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Smells decent. Some guy next to me thinks it smells like basil. A little crazy I say. An acceptable IPA at best. The hops really aren’t that heavy. And it seems like it has a variety that I don’t like. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2006

light gold color, thin white head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Nice flavor, carbonated, great beer for a hot day outside but seems to be lacking in gravitas. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Pours golden with a short white head that stays pretty well and laces some. Aromas of floral notes and light grapefruit blended with grains. Flavor is grainy with some definite grapefruit and pine notes. Good medium body and pretty lively carbonation for an IPA. Balanced pretty well. Slight bitter finish.

Bottle. Poured copper color with a large frothy off-white that lasted with very good lacing. Heavy hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Well balanced bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid bitter brew. jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pours orange-amber with a small white head. Good west coast hop aroma. The hops just don’t come through as well in the flavor, though. Not bad, but really more of an American Pale Ale. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Pour is hazy nice deep golden amber with a thin dense tan head...smell is smell is citrus and piney...taste is slightly hoppy, but rather bland...sweet malty undertones with a slight hop bitterness toward the finish...good still, just not overhopped...I’m surprised since this is from the West Coast...
