Nice amber color. Bite is not as strong as I expected. Citrus type hop flavor. Slightly sweet finish. I will try this one again,but prefer more bite in my IPA.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2006
Pours slightly hazy golden color. Aroma of citrus hoppiness and sweet malts that ends up smelling a bit like blueberry. Nice boldness in the first sip, not quite bitter, but it has a nice hoppy essence. Nice floral hop flavor balanced with slight malty finish. I like the amount of hoppy flavor in this one, but the hops taste a bit raw at times. I’m happy I tried this one.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2006
Beer is a light amber color with a small white head that faded fast. Aromas of citrus type hop with some fruity esters with a mild malt mixed in. A medium amount of hop bitterness and flavor for an IPA. Finish has a little citrus type fruit followed with a some biscut type malt flavors. The beer is a decent session type IPA that I could have 3 or more. It just isn’t as assertive as I like my IPA. Overall a good easy drinking beer.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2006
12 oz bottle. Golden colour, thick off-white head. Beautiful hoppy aroma. Simcoe pinyness and some tropical pineapple notes. Soft resiny character. Great fresh hoppy aroma. Sweet apricot in the malt profile as well. Flavour is quite good, light resin underneath a fresh herbaceous hop flavour. Some sweet tropical and slightly piny notes. The malts show a bit of breadiness and toast, but the hops dominate here. Aroma is all PNW but the flavour is a little less so. Tasty IPA.

Bottle from nejhleader pours golden blonde w/ a white head w/ good lacing. Subtle fruity, flowery hop aroma matched by delicate flowery hop flavor. Not aggressively hopped. Drinkable w/ little hop bitterness but big hop fruitiness. Really good beer.

Nirvana for hop heads! A great hoppy beer! I would serve this to friends anytime. If you like Seierra Nevada Celebration, you’ll love this beer.

Kevin (2037) - Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Nice pour that is orange tan with a fat creamy head. Wonderful hop aroma that is citrus and pine with a little candy. Yeah man, that’s bitter. Tongue numbingly bitter pine that makes me smile. Some toast flavor in the finish. Some grapefruit is here too. A nice hop experience. Ap-4 ar-7 tas-7 pal-3 ov-15

Bottle. Poured your basic translucent amber/gold....small whitish head. Nice hop nose...and the flavor follows suit. Decent maltiness to back things up. Medium bodied...decent bitterness. This is a pretty good IPA....wouldn’t mind having this one again.
