brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2004
A quite simple IPA with loads of hops and bitterness. Not for everyone, but hop-heads should like this.

Nice aroma, hoppy, good light copper color. Good lace. Excellent taste. A very good IPA.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Golden color with a moderate, whitish head. Strong hop nose - citrus and pine. Very hoppy in the WC IPA style with significant malt backbone consisting of toffee and caramel flavors. Very full bodied. Nice, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Draught version. Good aroma and color opens for a beer with a very pleasing hoppy profile. Well balanced with a nice malt base. Hops follow through to the end. Good beer.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2003
On tap at the Bier Garden in Asheville. This is definitely a beer for hopheads, as it's almost over the top. Nice fruity notes in the flavor as well.

haddon90 (1466) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2003
An orange/amber color to it. A nice big white foamy head. Somewhat of a hoppy smell but nothing big. Average taste. Nothing really spectacular. An average IPA in my opinion.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Hoppy Cascade aroma. Thick nice head. Malty and lovely, bitter flavors with aftertaste of pine. Strong cascade flavor. Copper colored. Great beer.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Good orange tint to a golden body, with a nice off-white head. Hoppy smell and slightly citrusey. Good overall taste with a little hoppy taste lingering on the palate for a while. Not a bad IPA!

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Suttree (5143) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2002
Nice golden orange color, like an orangutan with highlights. Hops dominate the nose and taste, but has an appealing earthiness - also like an oragutan. A lttle light on the finish.
