Complex flavors. Very tasty. This one has made it into my top 5 all time favs. Still have not identified all the different flavors in this beer. Also need to try it as my first beer...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold appearance with nice, fluffy, duvel-esque head. Nice smell for an IPA, although a little too sweet for my taste. Taste is also good for the style although not nearly as "biting" as I expected this beer to be. Least favorite aspect of this brew was the fact that there is no real lasting bitterness hanging around after sipping, it just kind of goes dull after a second or two. I understand this could be a plus for some, especially if you drink it like a session beer, but I like my IPAs to attack the palate a little more. Overall, this is a very good beer but did not live up to the hype I’ve been reading recently. Good IPA but not one of the best.

This is a perfect iteration of an IPA. Finish is smooth. Hops are abundant and aromatic. An ideal brew for almost any occaision.

A great session IPA. Not overwhelming but distinctive. I was a little put-off at first by the thin gold color, but the flavor is full with a satisfying feel to the mouth.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2007 I like this brew. It has a very nice hoppy taste without being overly bitter. It has a great all round finish. Competes well with Dog Fish Head 90 minute IPA. Well worth the price.

My favorite beer. Introduced to this a few years back by my porch loving hippie friends. Excellent hop level, nothing too extreme, but obviously noticeable. High ABV can lead to some great nights. Take this rating with a grain of salt however, as a fisheries biologist, I may or may not be biased by the label.

Not a bad IPA at all. A little harsh at first, but once you’ve got one in you the next go down easy. If you enjoy this try Stone IPA or Founders Centennial IPA. Both are much better than 2<3

This is one of my favorite beer’s ever. In fact, I think I’ve yet to find an IPA I like more than this one. Have had it many times on tap at Stray Dog in New Buffalo, MI as well as in the bottle.
I want to put on my bathing suit, drive to Comstock, and go swimming in this beer.
