Poured into a pint glass, a very rich, clear copper colour with moderate head, Intense and inviting piney aroma. Taste is deliciously bitter in hoppiness with some nice malts too..alcohol is well hidden. This beer is very refreshing, can’t wait to have it again.

Very very good IPA. The best I have had, actually. I look for this brand wherever I go and am dissapointed when I don’t find it. Higly recommend.

Light amber coloured with a thin white head. Clear hoppy flavour. Sweet and fruity with an acid aftertaste. Fresh with a slight alcoholic segment.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2005
Bottled. Light clear amber colour. White head. Alcohol nose, citrusy, nutty, fresh feel to it. Very malty, piney hops in flavour, then the abv takes over. Still very well balanced, but maybe with too much alco to it. Also, not as bitter in the finish as expected.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Well, Its the best IPA I’ve had. It is sweet and hoppy and smells flowery and alcoholic. Expensive, but worth it. I will buy it again.

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!

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - MAR 15, 2005
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 (611) - 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.
