Hoppy, but still manages to show some fruit on the tongue. The aroma is like fresh grass mingled with the hops. Copper color.

This is pretty tame for an IPA. The malt balances things out quite well. The grapefruit (cascades) is obvious. Very grassy/Earthy.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, West Mids. Another amber coloured ale, with a slight marmalade aroma. A very bizarre flavour - definitely some vegetable in here, perhaps carrott, with brown sugar to start off with. Residual sourness in the finish. Not particularly pleasant, fairly savoury and heavy. A complex, brandy quality.

Golden color with a nice white head. The taste i light malty with a dominant but very wellbalanced hoppyness.

Goblincat (382) - Westland, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2004
Pours a clear light copper with a very thick foamy long-lasting white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Very hoppy taste with a bitter bite. Not bad at all.

A great ale with a very nice finish. Refreshing, nicely hopped, and well balanced. I am looking forward to brewing a clone of this beer!

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 7, 2004
sweet grapefruit aroma. Frothy white head. Really nice citrus hops that could probably stand a bit more malt.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 This is a wonderful ale. Rich, cloudy with a strong but not overpowering hoppy flavour. Plus, as an added bonus, a lingering and wonderfully bitter aftertaste. A well crafted and absolutely delicious ale. Cheers to Anchor!

Very attractive pour. Medium golden color with a lively head with excellent retention and lace. Active visible carbonation. Aroma is pretty much all cascade hops. Taste is, you guessed it, all hops. Pretty full-bodied. There are some underlying flavors here besides grapefruit, but the hops smack me too hard to sort them out. Doesn't have the sourness of some of these super-hopped pale ales, which is pleasant. Detected hints of alcohol towards the end. Overall, I'm not feeling this one. It's great, just not THAT great. Perhaps I'm getting more cynical as I age.
