It pours a thin white rocky head that quickly dissipates but doesn’t completely go away. The color is a beautiful crystal clear amber. The aroma is full of hops with a hint of fresh cut grass you almost miss. Most IPA’s I have tasted had more subtle hop aroma. The flavor is primarily bitter-sweet raspberry and caramel. The malt sweetness is a bit overpowered by the hop bitterness but it does come through. It finishes with an astringent bitterness that is long lasting.

Pours copper witha thin off-white head. Very fresh hoppy aroma, crisp and citrusy. Taste is hoppy the whole way though, its nice because its not bitter most of the way, just hoppy tasting. Very gentle malts up front, not very sweet. Doesn’t really feel balanced, but isn’t overly bitter which is nice.

Though the name of this one sounds like it’d be EZ, it’s actually is hard to get. Well at least in Atlanta it is. I love this stuff, my fave of all time along with it’s Indian buddy the IPA. Mmmmm beer.

Bitter, sorta tangy...little tacky after taste. Wouldn’t be my first choice...but wouldn’t complain if it was given to me.

Pours a golden, amber brown. Fizzy head with very visible carbonation. Clear and translucent - not a hazy pale ale. Smells slightly sweet, malty and hopped. Traces of lemon grass and honey. Tastes mild and soft. Honey comes through. Something about this beer reminded me of an oak barrel while some other aspect makes this seem like a pale ale / amber. I like more bite to pale ales. Mediocre.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Clear copper coloured, small but lasting head. Very flowery and hoppy aroma. Flavour is a bit more malty, still with plenty of bitterness. Thanks to my colleague, who took this one home from the States.

Could smell the aroma of the malts. Copper color with no head when poured in to the glass. Went down good , good beer

I am surprised that this is as low rated as it is. it is not an IPA want to be but instead a good example of an APA. Nice hop smoothness and and very much a good session brew.

This picture on the label does not exactly turn me on. Yet I could use a little doggie style right now. Mm, yes I could. Reminded me a lot of celebration ale. I guess both hope for that hopsy creamy-palate climax. Any female raters willing to sample some doggie style? Oh yeah, holla. Or rather, bark. Yeah, ’cause that’s hot.

Bottled. Dark golden. Sweet frutiness in both aroma and flavour. Fine bitterness.
