Poured a nice golded yellow with a thick white head. Aroma was mainly of citrus fruits and hops. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Spices, orange peel, and hops on the tongue. This was a really nice beer.

I had this on draught at the brewery in SF. Easily the IPA I've ever had. Perfectly balanced. I recently tried this out of the bottle and was very disappointed. If you ever have the chance to tour the brewery, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

My sample didn't seem so hoppy especially for an IPA. Good aroma and clear ambur color. Big flavor with the fruity background. Clean finish with the Cascade hop flavor.

Highly enjoyable hopped up ale. Great golden amber with big ole white bubbles sitting on top. Floral and fruity and then leaves you with that lemon-fresh taste in your mouth. Glad this one is available on a regular basis.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 hoppy aroma. decent pour, decent white head... bubbles could bead a lot more and group together tighter. nearly clear amber gold body. a bit thin, but a refreshing brew in any case. it reminds me of peconic county reserve ale by southampton. it has a juicy yet bitter tart fruit and grape aroma and flavor. i think it needs more malt backup. i like it, despite the cost, which is a bit high. UPDATE 4/10/05: snifter / very nice, slightly active amber body with nearly white, tight, fizzy, and slowly diminishing head that ends up rockier and rockier. itís with a good, smooth, and lively palate thatís not thick nor too thin. itís with a simple flavor and aroma thatís floral with grapefruit, and with just enough toasty maltiness to balance, but obviously itís not without its abundant hoppiness. quite nice for a good and hoppy session beer! (the price is a bit high, but itís a quencher. uprated palate and appearance a point.)

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Tan orange color, medium head that mostly dimishes. Aroma is of medium dry citrus hops. Flavor is light and dry of hops and some yeast. Very good. Rerate: This stuff has really grown on me. So much character in this one, how could it not?

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 I need to come up with better words to describe beer color, so until then I am boycotting that part of my ratings. The cascade hops will lay you out if you are not expecting it; however, I was. But really, this is a quite hoppy beer, both in aroma and flavor and from beginning to end. There are more hopped up brews, but his one sometimes just hits the mark. Nicely balanced for an IPA. I just wish it was a bit less pricey. Are we still paying for its uniqueness almost 3 decades later? Why do I like this so much more than SNPA?

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2004
Bottled (355ml). I didn't realise until I started pouring that this hadn't quite settled out after transportation, so I had to proceed ultra-carefully. Result - no head and a slight suspension of very fine particles. That did not interfere with my enjoyment on iota. Pale copper/orange colour. Cascade aroma - zingy grapefruit and spicy lychee. Low carbonation - a slight prickle on the tongue. Floral hoppy palate with a fruit cocktail of flavours - maily citrus - and just a tinge of underlying sweetness. Clean, crisp finish. Some find this type of beer a bit in-yer-face, but I like it.

This used to be a standard, but I haven't had it in years now. Light copper, stirred up the sediment in this one, great head. Aroma is a popping grapefruit and pine aroma, with some biscuity notes. Flavor is mostly a straight match, although the malt is somewhat more forward in the mix. Hint of a vegetal quality is the only thing that detracts from this beer. Rightfully holds a place as one of the beers that changed the landscape here in the US.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
A very nicely balanced Ale with good Cascade hop aromas and enough of a malt profile to keep it interesting. However, I thought the finish was a little too watery for me. Nice brown/orange tint with a pleasant nose. A bit overrated.
