This one is hard to judge... only because whenever I usually get this brew, itís on tap...which is far better then the 12 ounce bottle version. On tap the citrus notes seem to really come forward, but in the bottle the hops seem a bit more subdued. Overall this IPA is pretty ho-hum. Nothing special, but iíve definitely had far worse. Get this one on tap if you can! itís much better!

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Huge fresh hop aroma. Big lacey white head. The flavor is acutely bitter and full of piney hops. Finishes clean and crisp. A fantastic and underrated IPA.

bottle...Clear golden pour with a medium sized white head. Very nice aroma, Floral hops, citrus. Brazen start, hops come right at you, nice maltiness also. Citrus peel fruitiness/bitterness also evident. Very nicely done, This is a bold hoppy IPA.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pours a clear, bright copper orange with a thin white head with light whispy lacing. Has a bold, fresh, grapefruity hop aroma with a touch of dry biscuity malt. Starts relatively thick, full and bittersweet with lots of hop presence and decent malty balance. Finishes crisp and lightly sweet with hints of citrus and hop resin. A very enjoyable and drinkable IPA.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Lightly chilled. Very light copper color. Big Hops aroma on the piney side. Surprising mouthfell much thicker that the color suggests. On the edge of resinous, which, for me, is perfection. Very little malt presence and would almost seem to be an APA if the hops were more citric. One of the most drinkable IPAs I have had and a personal favorite for session-type ales.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2005
The aroma was nice w/ orange zest, pine, and grapefruit. The flavor pretty much the same w/ a slight hint of flowers. The beer poured a golden orange color w/ thin head and thin lasting lacing. The mouthfeel was light and creamy.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Delicious IPA. Light on color. Very smooth and easy to drink. The bitterness is there but it is mellow and there is a little bit of sweetness. Great for the style.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
bottle from brickskeller. huge floral hop aroma. wads of hops in the flavor, and not a whole lot else. Iím not much of an IPA fan when theyíre stacked like this one is. The aroma is delightful, however.

Great session IPA, but a bit one dimensional. This is a very crisp, clean IPA and I will drink it again. Beautiful, crystal clear amber color, slightly to the yellow end. Great head and lacing, and a very clear hop flavor and aroma. I just wish the hops lingered longer and a little harder on the tongue. Taste is almost all in the back of the mouth, none up front which leads me to my thinking of it as one dimensional. Very nice IPA overall though.
