This was the beer that got me hooked on IPAs. It is a great beer although not for the faint of heart. It has a great hoppy aroma and flavour. Get giddy just thinking about having one!

Smells great just pouring it. Nice clear amber color with nice corbonation that settles to a small but healthy head. Malt and hop team up in a complex yet balanced flavor. Well worth the price.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 "Brother gave me this as a birthday gift. Not a huge IPA fan, but this beer has a great taste if you like hops. Also has a hint of a fruity taste to it."

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Cloudy, medium oragne color with a huge off while head. Hoppy aroma, pine/citrus with some earthy pear. Flavor is initially acidic with a bitter finish that still has an acidic feel to it. I taste major spurce-pine like hops, some citrus and some earthy fruit (apple). Medium palate with a dry texture,...lightly metallic finish. It took me a while to finish this one.

Botttle. I had been sitting on this, and well for 400. Poured amber with a white, fizzy head. Spruce and grapefruit hops smack you right from the pour. The taste was not as hoppy as I feared.I liked this IPA. It maybe the use of hops other then casscade. Excellent.

Had this one on tap at Ashleys in Ann arbor, MI. Light amber, alchohol comes through later, fruity with strong hop presence. An excellent IPA, worth the price. Thick mouthfeel but very drinkable.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 i mean wow. pours a clear light amber. aroma is a bang of resin-y hops . flavor: wow. malty fun in front, hoppy finish in back. it ends with some sweetness, but the dry-hopping character is there. enough of the malt gets through to make this an absolutely stellar beer. no evidence of the 9% alc. i think i’m in love.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Pours amber with thick off white head. Has aroma of hops, fruits and citrus. Flavor of grapefruit, hops, floral, and citrus. Execellent I2PA not too strong and well balanced.

bigrond (1475) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 hands down the best I.P.A ever strong hop flavor, even stronger hop finish and nine percent alc. WOW this is heaven

Boy,I love the looks and the nose of this brew.Clear amber brew with a dash of big bubble head and a blast of piney resiny hops that leapt outta’ the glass and landed one on my nose.Hoppy and malty,I found there to be a very good balance between the two.
