On tap at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy gold with a white head that laced a bit. Aroma was full of pine and grassy hops with a malt undertone. Flavor had nice pine flavor with a grassy and malty finish. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Draft... RBSG 07... Lightly hazy golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Decent retention. Big-time PNW hop nose emphasizes lots of pink grapefruit, other citrus and tropical fruits, along with an earthy suggestion of fallen pine needles. Medium to heavily bitter, grapefruit pith flavor with just a touch of tangy acidity. Medium to full-bodied and extremely tannic with tingly carbonation. Lengthy, very bitter, dry finish.

Tap @ Town Hall. Pours a bit hazy dark golden appearance with a white head. A bit fruity, earthy, herbal hoppy, slightly toasted malty aroma. Mild orange fruity, cracker, herbal grassy hoppy flavor. Ok. BVery (10485) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 TAP: golden pour, malt and citrus on the nose. A bit of caramel in there as well. Decent brew. arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pours hazy orange with off white head, nose of very English hops with a bit sweetness. Taste upfront is a bit piny and leads into the earthiness of the malt and finishes nicely bitter. Good effort as far as English IPAs go, usually not my favorite but would drink a lot of this! 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Golden clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Very permufy and acidic/caustic nose of hop pellets, tinny orange and grapefruit sourness and leafy cannibus. Very creamy texture up front - and sweet - before quickly brandishing it’s tougher side: ruination-like texture across the back of the tongue, rough and sharp hop acidity. Overall it’s quite sweet, with some more interesting mandarin orange flavors mixed with the typical soft wood/hop/fruit notes. A very good IPA, the type I really prefer - creamy yet hoppy and acidic - this is a good brew. Big thanks go out to Pigfoot for the gift of a growler of this stuff.
