UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 xjust couldnít get into this one -- had trouble finishing the six over a 2 week period. minimal head, dies off quickly -- smelled univiting -- I guess I just donít like this type of hops -- tasted as bad as smells -- just didnít have the malty sweetness to offset the bitterness of the hops like SNPA does. I will try their other beers, but stay away from the IPAs. 11-8-05 rerated -- I donít know what I was thinking? I guess now that I brew my own, Iíve become a hophead, but wow -- this is one tasty brew beautiful straw yellow with orange hue, big frothy white head that leaves a trail of belgian lace all the way to the last sip. Big, in your face hop profile. great sweet finish. I canít believe I ever said a bad thing about this one! Drink up -- Cheers!

Has a nice malt and hoppy aroma to it. Pours a nice golden color but is a bit cloudy. Aftertaste is nice and pleasant. Over all a good beer.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Pale yellow color, big frothy white head, slightly cloudy. Spicey honey hop aroma, some malts, crisp. Flavor is hoppy of course, with a decent malt pairing. A great summery IPA, not as big and complex as its big brother 90 min. but still good.

shadey (1960) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Pours a golden color with plenty of bubbly carbonation and a frothy white head. The foam laces down the glass nicely. Smells fruity and citrusy with plenty of hops. Quite good.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Bottle: Pours to a color that resembles apple juice with a smallish white head that lasts. Very hoppy aroma, no surprise there, oranges/lemons, even some pine here. Tasting it at first give you some sweet honey/citrus flavors that are soon replaced by bitter hops with a bite. Mouth feel is spot on for this one too. This is a solid IPA, though I'd pick Victory Hop Devil over it if I had to. Looking forward to trying the 90 and 120's.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Nice hop aroma on the pour, a bit more pronounced than the 90. Pours a yellow orange color with nice white head. Starts with a balance of hop/malt then the hops take over. One of my favorite IPAís

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Deep golden color with a thin but enduring head. Aromaís very citrusy (orange, lemon) along with pine. Initial palate shows some honey sweetness and finishes with a pleasant tart grapefruit/citrus finish. Smooth mouthfeel which added to its overall enjoyment. A solid American IPA.

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2004
golden color with a little red mixed in. light beige head. A little honey sweetness with citrus and pine. finishes with bitter hop taste. A little bite to it, but still drinkable. A good I.P.A.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Medium gold body, clear, with an average sized frothy head that is mostly lasting and has good soapy lacing. Sour pine aroma with some orange and menthol. Pine, honey-lemon cough drop, and orange in flavor. Very good.
