This beer has a super spicy hop aroma to it, it is quite remarkable. I really like how the hops have given this beer a spicy aroma and flavor, it is not just the typical citrus type hop flavor, though that is definitely in this one as well.

I had 2 with dinner this evening. I'm quite happy with this. It pours a nice gold haze color and a slightly strong head of foam. The aroma was quite good - could smell the hops real well. The taste was well balanced and not over the top hopped as the name and label design would have one think.

dry, very hoppy, excellent centennial aroma, the body gives out, like a legless IPA, striking but goes nowhere

Bottle. Amber, slightly larger-than-average head. Smells like a west coast IPA but more guezeish in the flavor and mouthfeel. Very fruity. Chinook hops that disappear in the flavor into a very moist mouthfeel that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Fantastic hoppy citrusy, grapefruit aroma. The flavor is not too overpowering, good balance and character. Smooth and not too dry or bitter. Has a real thirst quencher quality about it.

I'm one of those people that this beer really got going. It had a very nice hop aroma, some citrus, and celery notes. Flavor is balanced, and not too bitter. Overall, I think it tastes like a light IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big IPA-like aroma. Clinging foam produced on swirl. This beer got some people going at our tasting but it seemed hollow to me, with a watery quality underneath it. Very gentle bitterness, and nothing offensive. Moderately light orange/amber color.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden colour with a thin white head. Smells of hops (obviously) with high alpha acids and citrus such as grapefruit and lemons. Taste almost purely of hops, but not overwhelmingly so. Grapefruit lingers in the palate along with a slight hop bitterness. Balanced well with malt but no definate single malt characteristic shows through in the taste. Overall, a pretty good beer...the smell was more powerful than the taste, but the hops didn't kick quite enough for me, an avid hop-head! I bought this 22 ounce bottle from Total Beverage in Thornton (Denver), Colorado.
