Pours a cloudy orange with a creamy cream colored head. Very nice aroma of hops, oranges, and pineapples. Fruity flavor dominated by pineapple and hops. A tad bit overcarbonated- burns my tongue. I little lacking in the finish but still very tasty.

Really nice. Aroma of hops smells lovely. Slightly less hoppy than an IPA, but packs a nice hop punch.

This ale should have been labeled an IPA. It is a perfect example of what dryhopping should do to an ale. Very similar to Summit Brewery's IPA. The bouquet of this beer lingers for just a little while longer. My choice of summer ales... and winter for that matter.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Whoa! this beer has some bite! Taste resembles Harpoon IPA, but overdone. This beer was not drinkable for me. It had far too much citrus flavor. No thanks!
Rerate. Aroma is almost smokey. Taste is lemon and slight smoke. Lemon hoppy aftertaste. Much better the second time around.

This is a really cool ale, I loved it very much. It gives washes of refreshing hops throughout your mouth, and just leaves you feeling great. Not sickly at all. Also cool packaging and theme to the series of beers. A tasty beer for a tasty day.

Pours a nice copper color with a decent off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is pretty mild...I expected more from a beer that was dry-hopped. I guess I detected some hops although they were quite muted. Flavor is more hoppy than the aroma let on. Nice malt/hop balance. Body and mouthfeel is pleasant and appropriate for the style.

Was intreaged by the Description. Natural Aroma, Dark rich color. Flavor was crisp but not bitter. Overall a good beer need a little more Alcohol Content

Dry and hoppy, just short of an IPA. Good head formation and lace, but the head is not well-retained. Overall, pretty close to an IPA.

On tap at the Crescent Moon. Good amber color with outstanding aroma. Brussels lace is a spider web of glory on the glass. Hops character powerful and tangy. Excellent pub glasses which have the logo printed on the opposite side of the glass so that you must look through the beer to read the name. I'm a sucker for marketing, just ask my dog, Spuds...

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lovely copper amber with a beige, dense foam mostly lasting head which leaves a fine lace pattern. Sweet malt, piney grapefruit nose. Bready malts, thin body, salty, piney, finishing with grapefruit citrus hops. Im not impressed at all. This is lacking balance and real flavor. Dry hopped...yes. Good...no.
