Draught at Toronado, San Francisco.
Hazy orange golden beer with a small head. Nice and fresh hoppy and fruity aroma with orange tones. Hops is dominating in the flavor with some nutty notes also. Dry finish. A nice and tasty IPA.

Gachupines (850) - USA - SEP 10, 2004
Nice a clean taste. Very well balanced overall. Hops are fairly strong, but not overpowering. No real alcohol bite at all. Quite refreshing, could probably drink a few of these quite easily.

Deep amber color and a nice fluffy head. Clean hop aroma. Complex, well balanced flavor of sweet malt and bitter hops. Very nice IPA. Alcohol well hidden.

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Really a very nice IPA from BR. Great hop character (far superior in my mind to the hop character of their hop rod rye). Good flavor and aroma as well. Nicely done!

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2004
Bottled, thanks marbles! Amber colour, small head. Rich grapefruit hop aroma. Sweet with clean rounded mouthfeel. Very hoppy and grapefruity, but with more malt depth than is normal in American beers. Lingering really bitter finish.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 2, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 Pours amber color with inch thick white head that doesn’t budge. Lot’s of notes of pine and citrus in the aroma and flavor. Big hop aromas of tropical fruit as well; maybe a little mango? This beer really focuses on the hops. The malt and alcohol are there to back up the hops- but the nice thing is that they don’t get in the way of appreciating the intricacies and complexities of my favorite flower.

Huge lacing and more potent aroma this time.
A solid, yet unspectacular IPA. The pour is a medium amber, with minimal carbonation, head or lacing. The flavor is fresh, with notes candi sugar sweetness. The hops profile is lively, and the finish refreshing, but also warming.

Pours orange/red in color. Huge aroma. Sweet/hops/citrus in large quantities. Quite hoppy. Sweet citrus flavor, interesting. Very flavorful and enjoyable.
