adrian910ss (2412) - 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.

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.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2004
Light brown, light nice thick head, hoppy floral aroma. Sweet, light to medium boded, mildly bitter ends a bit bitter. Very drinkable one of the more balanced American IPA’s

hershiser2 (1328) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2004
Light orange/golden in color, with a large frothy head. Aroma is ver piney, with hints of grapefruit and flowers. Flavor is also very piney, with a lot of maltiness to it- definitely hoppy as hell.

Light orange in colour with a creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma was floral, piney, quite citrusy(lemon and grapefruit). Flavour was quite hoppy, oranges, grapefruit, with pine and some malt. Finishes with a moderate bitterness, slightly dry. Thanks for sending this to me Jeff.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 A very hoppy IPA. You have to give a lot of credit to Sam Calagione. He actually invented a machine to dry hop this stuff. I prefer the 90 minute (I haven't tried the 120 minute yet), but this is a nice, hoppy beer. The taste reminds me a little of Tanqueray gin. Re-rate for draft version, 8/22/04. I kicked up the overall and aroma scores 0.1 each after having this on draft in the brewpub.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2004
I almost think that this beer has more of a stand out hop profile than the 90min. Pours a yellow orange color with a prolific foam head. Aroma is VERY hopy and bitter. Flavor is a bell curve of hop bitterness. Starts of with a tinge of malt and builds in bitterness and finally tapers off in the finish. If hoppy IPA's are your thing you can't go wrong with this one. It also is plent strong enough to hold it's charecter when cold so it makes a great hot day beer.

very faint hops aroma; red-amber color with a medium white head; the taste is predominately of hops, with a long-lasting bitterness

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2004
12oz Bottle Packaged in Jan. I like the look of this IPA. A nearly clear gold with a huge snow white head that leaves lots of lacing and retains well. Has a fragrant hop aroma that is floral and slightly grassy with some fresh malt in the background. The body is medium and smooth with a slight chewiness. The flavor takes much from the aroma. Hoppy, bitter and slightly grassy with a malt that evens everything out. Leaves a lingering bitterness. Overall a very good and balanced IPA.
