Reasonable head and okay lacing. I liked the hop tank that was the main notable feature of this brew

This one poured a semi cloudy orange color with little to no carbonation and a super tiny non lasting white head. The aroma was very citrusy and hoppy with a crystal maltiness to it. The flavor is much of the same with caramel and crystal like malts pounding the palate amidst a flurry of lemon, grapefruit and tang. There is almost an almondy sweetness about this beer with a mid taste bitterness that milds out by the finish. Fairly dry finish with increased carbonation as it goes down. A well rounded beer overall.

Assuming that everything in the cooler at the local store was ALSO on the shelf warm, I didn't see this one in my many months of visiting the store until just recently. It was worth the wait! This beer starts out a cloudy orange color, with a good amount of off white head. It's not a beer that really looks "pretty," but you just get a sense it has some character to it. The nose is hoppy, but not overpowering. A very nice nose! The flavor is also quite nice, though it just doesn't live up to the expectations you might get from the aroma. This isn't as hoppy as expected, I'd say it has a medium bitterness, but a fair amount of citrus character. Really quite nice. A very good IPA.

Hazy, toffeebrown color. Fine white head. Clear hoppy aroma with some spices.

Much better than the Steam beer. Fine big head, cloudy amber appearance. Some ceralics in the aroma and flavor. Finish bitter.

Best IPA I've had. Very refreshing flavor. Zesty, fruity hints. I don't usually drink beers this light, but this one is an absolute winner. It's grreeeeeaaaaaaaattt!

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 I was disappointed with the Steam Beer, so I was anxious to try this one. It is my 100th beer. Very minimal white head, hazy orange body. Aroma is piney, somewhat lemony, and faint. Flavor is very sweet and malty, but balanced by a hoppy bitterness that lasts through the finish. Solid beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2003
A light energetic head with a bright golden body. Strong hoppy aroma with a slight floral (rose) notes emerging with a slight tingle on the tongue. I found it slightly acidic…try to be bitter. Nice though.

Smells strangely like malts for a so-called IPA - not much hops really either - in the flavor or in the aroma. A bit of a skunky finish like a pilsner. Golden color, quickly fading head. More like a semi-flavorful lager.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pleasant appearance - pale gold with a thin layer of white foam on top - some alcohol can be detected in the aroma (odd for a beer of this alcohol content) - pleasant cascade hops in the flavor, but the hop character is more like that of a regular pale ale - not much else going on in the flavor - slighty graininess - nominal malt presence - generally thin bodied, light for an IPA - this is like a "lawnmower beer" for hop heads.
