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.

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.

Either I could smell the hops 2 feet from the glass or I was hallucinating. Nice clear color, long lasting white head. Initial taste is great, but the aftertaste was a bit stale. A little less full-bodied and flavored than I had hoped.

Nice orange color. For an IPA, it is weaker than I expected, which is good because I'm not crazy about super-hoppy beer yet. Bitter aftertaste, but to be expected from an IPA. If you like this style, it is a decent, watered-down version.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Citrus and hop aroma with a malty background, slightly skunky. Dark amber color, completely translucent. Silky head and sticky lacing. Flavor matches the aroma. Dry and sour finish. Overall: This is an IPA? Hehe, no it isn't, not near enough hops, tasted more like anchor steam.

Interesting smell. It tasted more like the Anchor Steam than a pale ale. Worth a try.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Floaties. Orange marmalade appearance, no head. Citrus, spice, pungent. Jumps from the glass. Hoppy, sour and metallic. Acidic and a lot of carbonation. Better than some.
