This beer was not as impressive as I had hoped. After trying the anchor porter, I couldnít wait to see what else they had to offer. What I got was a bitter beer, which I was expecting, and an acidic unpleasant aftertaste, which was a complete suprise. Iíll give this one another shot down the road...but for now...

(12 oz bottle) Sorry to buck the trend, but Iíve never been a big fan of this beer, and I think itís the fact that it seems too floral and perfumy to me rather than hoppy, especially when sampled in an IPA tasting session. The strong hops influence gives this beer a very floral and perfumy character, and a moderately bitter bite, but not to be overlooked is the mildly sweet and fruity maltiness that is vaguely reminiscent of an English bitter, as odd as that might seem. Fairly clean palate, but the sweetness does cut into it a bit. The nose isnít all that aromatic, but there is a lightly sweet, floral aroma. Light golden color and completely clear. The half-inch thick head is nearly white in color with a nice creamy top. I mean, itís an okay beer in my opinion, but I just think itís an average beer in terms of the enjoyment factor.

Hazy orange in color. Aroma is hops and grapefruit. Flavor is crisp hops with some fruitiness. Finish has a nice hops bite. I could drink this all the time.

Nice golden/ yellow colour with big white head. Aroma has some sweet fruity freshness combined with a dry hoppy touch. Flavor has some orange sweetness with a long dry finish.

This is my favorite IPA on the planet, ...now Mars makes some good ones, but we donít rate them here. The beautiful pungency of the Cascade hops stay with you as you drink this beer. The head is cumulus thick, the color is straw yellow, and the tiny bubbles rush continously to the top of the beer. The apple sweetness arrives as the hop bitterness disappears. This beer is unique in itís category, and is an incredible example of what can be done with this style.

Not nearly as strong as most IPAs, but i donít always want to be blown out by hops. That is why i like this beer, real good flavor, aroma is nice just enough to let me know it is hoppy. Good finish not to dry. Real good beer to drink two or three of and get on with your night.

Sparkling and golden with a generous rocky white head. The aroma is a blend of US hops and English ale. Well balanced classy flavor. Apple, butter, citrus and a tart, slightly bitter finish. Still distinct after all these beers.

Great flora hints in the initial pour. Nice tan color and ample white head. To me it was a beer beer. Flavor was big hops and no fruit, spice etc. Just a great grainy flavor. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Great beer! The moment you open the bottle a fantastic boquet overwhelms you with hints of floral subtleties, citrus, cascade hops, yeast, oranges, honey. Great color, laces glass well. Fantastic taste the hops are so well done. A fine tribute to the cascade hops.
