The beer pours into a nice head. First taste was a nice IPA with a ton of hops. The taste moves on to the floral hops is a bit overwhelming by the end of the glass.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 Pours a nice amber color with a cream head. A hoppy smell, but a little lighter from the other IPA’s of late.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber color with only the slightest of head forming.
Smell is hoppy. Some grassy, some piney, some funky. Taste is crisp and refreshing. A good IPA.

Rated 12/28/06: Another good offering from Anderson Valley. Nice IPA, very well rounded. Aroma is very floral with a little citrus worked in. Thick copper color, very nice medium sized head. Incredibly smooth, the bitterness from the hops soon fades. Good taste, the hops are immediately upfront then soon mellow out. Could use a touch more malt, but I am still impressed with the nice balance of this IPA. Good choice.

Ruby red grapefruit explodes through the aroma and tasting follows through with the grapefruit character.

Powerful aromas of sweet floral and fruity hops and a bit of malt. The flavor is of very fruity bitter hops with a pleasant balance of sweet malt. The finish however is rather bitter. It is good but not great...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber in color with a nice, lasting head. The hops are clearly there, with plenty of bitterness, but also lovely sweetness. Sweet citrus, pine, and perfume sit atop creamy malt.

A pretty underrated IPA in my opinion - especially considering the price for the sixer. Not bad, not bad at all...a very crisp, thirst quenching, floral IPA - i enjoyed this much more than I thought I would... but it still isn’t a beer to go braggin about

Nice surprise! Definitely a floral aroma. A rather "smooth" bitterness and extremely drinkable. The hops are extraordinary. This is in the class of Two-Hearted Ale - not quite as harsh. A little expensive - but well worth it. I will definitelly buy this again,and again and again. Great Brew.
