I love these extremely hoppy American beers - I wish we could get more of them in the UK. Bottle from Beer Cafe, Glasgow. Red-orange, Yellow-white sparse diminishing head. Huge citrus hop aroma. Overwhelming fruit/hop/yeast flavour which numbs the tongue. Good finish with lingering american hops. Love it.

Golden, honey, copper color (whatever you want to call it) slightly hazy, wi th a white head leaving a nice lacing. Essentially fruity aroma (mostly grapefruit but also peach and apricot) and lightly yeasty. Flavor dominated by the bitterness of hops, with citrus and a touch of pepper. Malty finish once the bitterness starts dissipating. Pretty good pale, definitively not my favorite kind though.

Aroma is peach, wheat, malt, with a slightly nutty smell also. Taste is slightly hoppy with a nice fruity background and somewhat floral.

This is a exceptional beer,my new favorite ale. pours a honey gold,slightly cloudy to me,big off white head with strong lacing.The nose is hoppy and slightly fruity. The taste of this beer is top notch.Hops up front,but balanced,then a nice sweet malt,then into citric and finishing slighty floral from a nice sweet hop.A slight yeast like flavour buried in there too,adding to the experience. great body,I could drink this all night long.

this is drinking American history and its tastes very good. Growing up in the Midwest during the 70’s I can only imagine what a shock this beer caused at the time. Even during the new Millennium this is a powerful beer in terms of aroma and taste, which has a very nice west coast/cascade feel to it. One of the starters for the American craft brewers movement.

Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit and floral hops. Well hopped with a strong citrus flavor. This is the IPA which began my appreciation for hops years ago (you have to crawl before you can walk, right?).

It poured clear, amber with a little orange. Head was moderate with lots of lacing. Looked great! The scent is floral slightly heavy on the citrus and a little piney in the nose. You can tell it was dry-hopped. The taste is hoppy with light carmel malt in the back. The mouthfeel lighter but stil full, and helped by carmel sweetness. It’d be easy for this to have a strong bite due to the dry hopping but this brew seem to find a perfect balance. Yummy and very drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 Bottle - Sweet cherry malt and hops aroma and amber color with moderate head. Flavor primarily hops and light sour malt. Hops are well-balanced - doesn’t come across too bitter. A re-rate but I didn’t change my opinion too much.

Nothing bad to say about this beer...it was o.k. Certainly not one of the best IPA’s out there, and not as hopped as advertised.

On tap at the Tatoverede enke in Copenhagen. Good off-white head, aroma is slight citrus fruity. Rich taste, very well balanced, good carbonation. This beer was very good with a meal, easy and very pleasurable to drink. I was quite impressed.
