UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Fruit/Flower aroma. Citrus hints with a heavy bitter hop taste. One of my favorites. Now available everywhere.

12 oz bottle, pours deep golden with a good head and nice lacing. Lively in the mouth with citrus flavor.

incredibly strong hop bouquet yet not brutally bitter. an excellent IPA, maybe the best I’ve had. orange color, off white abundant head that is fizzy rather than heavy or creamy (yet remains a surprisingly long time for such a head) and releases abundant hop.

Whoa. I took a sip, fell back through the window and landed on a cloud of hoppiness. This beer is extremely fruity and balanced. I felt like I was drinking the air in a mexican fruit market. Beautiful beer but....what is with the label? Hemmingway symbolism or what? May I suggest... a big castle, surrounded by knights and giant hops growing out of the mote with the "lady of the beer" somewhere in there. Itís time to display a great American beer with some round table honor! Alright Iím done.

Hazy, deep golden colour with a thick white head. Awesome hoppy aroma - primarily grapefruit softened by floral notes. Taste is amazing - bitterness up front, but not at all overwhelming. Bitterness is accented perfectly by sweet grapefruit and orange flavors. Nice bitter finish. Great IPA!

One of the better traditional IPAs you can have. Good malt body balanced with plenty of hops that arenít overpowering. Good aroma. Great IPA.

This is outstanding. Medium gold hazy color on tap. This IPA has a strong citrus aroma. Complexity on the palate is achieved from ample use of hops and malt. The taste starts with a spicy lavender flavor and moves on to citrus and finishes a refreshing bitter. Rich rich rich. One of my favorites

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gorgeous thick-foamed big-bubble head, slow carbonation, perfect hazy amber color. no lace to speak of. Flowery aroma overpowers any residual citrus. Creamy mouthfeel, full-bodied. Some sweetness to semi-balance the strong bitterness. More bitterness than the 09 Hopslam because of less malts.
