UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 So far, the least favorite of the IPA’s I’ve tried. Too much of the "piney hops" for my taste. Overly harsh and bitter with them. Color is a nice gold, nice lacing white head, but aroma tips off piney hops, and the taste grabs you and says "something’s not quite right here". II’ve enjoyed a number of different IPA’s and 2IPA’s, but not this one.

Bottle poured golden with an off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavors of pine and earthy hops, a hint of biscuits, with a bitter finish.

Pours cloudy yellow with thin white head that quickly diminishes leaving good lacing. Nose is floral, piney hops with a touch of sweet caramel. The flavor is resinous with citrus notes - grapefruit predominates, some lime (which is rare), very slight malt character throughout. I am also reminded of the quinine like bitterness of tonic water. Coats the tongue with refreshing bitterness at the end. Overall pretty good.

Even though IPA’s are not my style I enjoyed this one. The aroma is strong with hop smells that include flowers as well as cedar and citrus. Some sweet malt smells as well. It is a dark golden color that is slightly hazy. The flavor is bitter as expected but does have a nice malt component as well. Finish is nice with toasted malt and hops.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Big hoppy aroma. Very nice flavour with lots of hops. Very dry and bitter finish. Refreshing.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Pours a nice light orange color and makes a really thick frothy head. Aroma is light caramel malt, bit of citrus orange. Flavor is excessively bitter, very one sided, only subtle hints of what were suggested in the nose are available as the bitter bitter hops rue the day... it is actually kind of harsh and unpleasant. The bitterness is really long lasting. Medium body, leaves a slight coating on the palate. Sadly, the harsh characteristics in the flavor just don’t do it for me. I’ll take the Maharaja over this one 10 times out of 10.

Great IPA! Straight hops! No aftertaste, very smooth. Not so much like beer but like eating hops! :)

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Deep golden, creamy off white head. Initial grapefruit aromas get followed up quickly with notes of earth, caramel, and lesser notes of pine. Had an almost 60 Min IPA nose to it. Well hopped flavors up front with no real bitterness to speak of, soft sweet caramel backbone rounds it out. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter-sweet, drying finish. Drinkable for sure, but definitely not a top notch IPA...

An excellent IPA! Ranks up there w/ Bell’s Two Hearted in my book. Supercharged hop taste and aroma, strong and slightly grainy sweet malt backbone. Have to give points for the great label art, as well. A real pleasure to have and to drink, this one.
