Good thick head...smells like a bitter. Taste reminds me of cheap gin and sweet and sour sauce. I expected more. Extremely bitter and unsatisfying aftertaste. Crisp and dry ale with a lame finish. Boo.

On Tap at Pracna Minneapolis (I have had this beer many, many times otherwise) IPAís are my favorite style, I love the citrus, Piney aroma and flavors. This is my second favorite IPA I have ever had (Surly Furious is the only one I would prefer over this). Aroma is a nice citrus hop, extremely inviting. Color good golden orange. White head sticks around pretty well. Taste, oh the taste is a wonderful pine, citrus hoppy well balanced flavor. A little too carbonated for me, but let this one breate a little and it is perfect.

Bottle. Purchased at brewery. Pours lovely golden colour, not as dark as many IPAs Iím drinking these days. Very floral nose, reminiscent of Rogue or Stone (definitely west coast) but a little more floral, not as grainy. This knocked me on my bum just with the nose. The great thing about this beer is itís not too hoppy, not too bitter. My partner, a decided stout, porter and lambic woman, also loved this, and she tends to eschew the hoppier ones that make me have to sit down. As she said, itís very fresh tasting.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Poured a thick, bright white head that dissipated quickly. Fruity....very strong citrus notes that made for a clean finish along with the obvious hoppiness.

The cloudiness seems appropriate. Mild, sweet, and fresh. Wonderfully peppy and sassy. Round with a nice aftertaste. I could drink this one all night.

Wow!, teh aroma is a blend of apricot,grapefruit and maybe orange, very nice. Pours amber/orange with a decent head. My first taste made me say "whoa!" I'm glad I bought this beer. It's a bit sour and has a thick citrus taste. Maybe not a session beer, but I think I'm going to knock down the other 5 in the fridge tonight anyway. Packs a bit of a punch with a nice aftertaste.
