Very light and clear in appearance. More of an English IPA. Well hopped,but not citrus or piney, more of a leafy or cut grass type flavor. Bitterness in the finish. As all most a pepper taste in the hops. A classic

Nice ale. Very fruity, herb-like aroma. Cloudy light amber in color, thick tall head. Decent flavor, but nothing special. Very hoppy taste with a dry finish, no hint of the alcohol at all. Dry, clean finish. I like it and its very easy to drink, but it wasnt a very unique brew.

skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2003
Floral aroma; hops and malts, little sweet. Good, Appearance is okay; cloudy orange coloured; head is nice but dies quickly. taste is hopbitter, burned malts and spices. Aftertaste is hopbitter. I like this; My first IPA (rated #292 I believe). The style is hard to get here, but I sure want to taste more of this stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 Cloudy orange colour. Hoppy aroma and flavour. My first experience with the style. It takes a little getting used to, but it's ok.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Mostly clear, orange/copper body, medium bubbly head. Quite active carbonation. Definitely has a full aroma of Cascades, lemon and pine, though suprisingly faint. Hops dominate the palate, with a bit of counteracting sweetness. I"ve had way hoppier beers than this, but the mixture of hops here I don"t find particularly appealing. This rating is for 12 oz bottle. On tap it seems much more balanced with stronger pale malt presence, which bumps it up 0.4 or so.

Having been so impressed by their porter, I was dissapointed by this. My opinion of this beer is that nothing stands out and its basically just a boring brew. The palate felt like some kind of Labbat Blue/ Two Hearted Ale hybrid, but much closer to Labbat. If you want an IPA I would say look for something with a little more substance.

jgb9348 (4989) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2003 Great hazy orange colour, amazing smell. Hoppy, fruity taste...very smooth finish as well! A great overall 'summer' IPA, where the taste is quick and somewhat hoppy, but not overly drying. Not a horrible Imperial IPA which will leave you full beyond belief, but one that compliments a good seafood dish or something along those lines.

Gold/Copper alloy in color with little carbonation, head and lacing. Has very little flavor when ice cold but once it warms up it is a bit too alcoholic on the tounge, but has a nice robust grapefruit flavor going down. Plenty of hops to balance it out, a well crafted beer. A beer that should be a staple of any fridge.

Nice and round flavor. Dark, and hoppy. It reminded me A LOT of a strong Fat Tire without the gasiness. That is not a bad thing at all. It had good flavor and very little aftertaste. I would drink it again. BTW I like the bottle shape too.
