A very hazy copper form the bottle. The aroma is fairly subdued with toffee and toast? Flavor has a citrus bite and toast. I could down a few of these slightly sweet beers.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
Sixty minutes of boil and continuous hopping provides this golden, dry, and refreshing brew. It is probably sufficient to the needs of most. I, on the other hand like stuff over the top like the 90-minute.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2004
Clear golden color witha nice big white head on top. This is my first true american IPA. Lots of hoppiness in the nose, pines, grassy and citrus... Very nice aroma. The flavor rocks... Some slight malty presence and very nice hoppiness, citrus, massive bitterness. The malt and hops could be more balanced. Dry in the end. A very nice treat for a hop lover. Niceness....

123456green (46) - houston, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 Pours heavy. Light golden color. Tones of grapfruit. Hops and Malts are somewhat off balance. Leaves slight aftertaste. Easy to drink however malts are not rich enough.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
12 oz bottle after 2 drafts of Yards IPA. Not as fresh. Still great "cascady" bouquet (amarillo?). Lots of hop flavor, drier fermentation than the Yards leading to sharper mouth feel and a biting finish. Excellent brew, but I prefer the draft Yards.

adrian910ss (2317) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
Pours a cloudy gold color with a nice sized head. Very citrusy and grapefruity in taste, yet smooth. A slight notch below the dogfish head ipa 90, yet very tasty. One of the better IPA's out there.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2004
Pours cloudy gold with a nice size tan head. Aroma was grain, floral and hops. Flavor was slightly sweet, spicy. Finish was nice; Citrus bitterness. Aftertaste was dry. Very wall balanced with a nice caramel maltiness that was a surprise for an IPA. Very nice.

Dark golden color with a big beige head. Piney hop aroma and flavor. Finish is long and bitter and a little harsh.
