slight malt and decen hop aroma. Nice big hop bite throughout. Not my favorite, but a good brew nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Whoa, huge bottle. No ABV listed but I'd guess around 7%. All hops, very little other flavor. Bah.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect orange tinted golden colour with a great thick dense off-white head. Sensational aroma of grapefruity and citrus hops, peaches and even some pear sweetness. Seriously a mouthwatering beer. Medium-bodied; Strong inital hoppy flavour mixed with the fruity sweetness fades to a subtle hop taste. Aftertaste shows a little of the hops, but much less than the inital taste. This is balanced well with malt...and truly a great beer. This 22 ounce bomber survived a trip from Denver to Detroit. Detroit to Washington and Washington to Rochester and still tastes great three months later! I bought this bottle at Total Beverage in Denver, Colorado.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like cascade hops, a clear light amber with an off white head. Very nice fruity, hoppy sweet onset, a wonderful bitterness, followed by a sweetly bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma consists of Cascade hops and hoppy peacher fruitiness. Appearance is a light amber in color. Flavor is excellent: sweet fruitiness up front with a big hoppy bitter/fruit finish. Nice thick mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 Lightly flowery, piney and citric hop aroma. Light-medium golden color, with light creamy foam and lacing. Largely hop-accented flavor, more pine and citrus, with some spice and light malt sweetness. Some balance here. Light-medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Incredibly drinkable IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: This beer is a dark copper color with a medium white head. Thin lacing. Hops and citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied and with a strong peppery hops presence. The finish is tart grapefruit and more hops. I normally like a lot of hops in an IPA but the hops flavor was on the spicy side in this brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 Clear amber, regular white head. Sweet cascade hop aroma, peaches and roasted pine are heavy. Initally this IPA tastes mild and sweet, within the first two seconds, but then there explodes a big sour apple flavor, followed by a tart and bitter cascade hop finish. Thick and creamy, it stands above the rest of the "overhopped cascade" IPAs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Brass body with delicate carbonation and a white lumpy foam head. Intense and distinct aroma of flowers, apples, oranges, and caramel. Mouth-puckering bitter and sour blast with juniper notes and malty dressing. Boulder has really achieved something with this novel IPA.
