UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 bottle 12 oz. Was dated 02104. Orange/golden color, not clear, large beige head which fell down quickly, almost no lace. Few large bubbles rising. Nice, potent, fresh hop aroma and flavor. Light roasted malt flavor. Medium bodied, dry, sour, and bitter balanced fairly well with the malt. Now I know what is meant by "grapefruit". Citrusy fits on this one as well. A decent brew but lacks depth/complexity. Would prefer more malt flavor and richness. Update 11/16/04: Iím dropping this down .2 to a 3.2. It tastes like its assembled with sub grade parts. Iíll try to avoid it as best I can now. 1/18/06: Iím getting this for $4.99/6 now. I think its worth that price but not more. OK for house swill. 12/04/06 Iím upping this to 3.5. Itís not that bad, especially for the price or $4.99/6. Nice sourness in the mix.

Way too fruity for my taste. Doesn't really have that pale ale kick. Almost like it has a post brewed flavouring added to it... Drinkable, but overrated.

On tap @ Barclay's. Hazy golden orange body. Nicely balanced flavor though tamely hopped.

What a great beer. Nice and bitter. This one you can never go wrong with if you like full tasting IPA's.

Holy perfume! I had two samples, one a regular tap and one cask conditioned that was poured from the bottom of the cask. Hazy orange appearance on the cask version. Orange and perfume aroma and then WHAM a big perfume flavor on the first taste. My mouth settled into it a bit and then it becomes very drinkable with more moderate flavors. Interesting interpretation of the style. (on tap and cask conditioned hand pull, BridgePort BrewPub, Portland)

Golden in color. This beer has a strange aroma: sort of woodsy and piney. Not much hop character in the flavor, but enough hop bitterness for a worthy IPA.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Hazy and sunshiny. Aroma is very strawy, peppery, and fruity (mangos, oranges). Deeply creamy refined maltiness, full of fresh hop flavor, but a tad soapy. Beauteous glowing finish, stimulating invigorating bitterness; this is a thing of beauty! A sleeper.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2004
The aroma was very hoppy but I found the taste to not be as hoppy as expected. Still, this is on old school IPA and one that needs respect. Try it if you get a chance.

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Great citrus hops aroma, white lacey head, golden color, not overly carbonated, good hop bite, caramelized, grapefruit, somewhat tart and crisp finish, this is good, almost as good as good as the perfect crime.
