3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Simple yet pleasant beer as i expected. It poured an amber color with little head, a slight white mess which dissipated within seconds. The aroma was very hoppy as to be expected. Earthy and piney notes wafted throughout. The body was fairly light however. Somewhat watery with fresh hops, but light light LIGHT body. This ends very dry and extra bitter. I'm not much of a bitter hound, so this was a bit over the edge for me, but it was still a good beer. I enjoy some fresh hops, and these were pretty good!

A good IPA but I'm getting a little tired of the standard use of cascade hops. Not as good as their latest beers but a good standby at the brewery.

Nice true amberish tangerine color with a solid amount of head. Has a typical citrus dominated aroma, has the same feel to it with moderate hops that come on strong to finish. Not a bad brew.

Had at Real Ale Festival on cask - May 30th, 2003
Beer appears orange with a nicely sized head. A very malty aroma with a hint of fruits. Flavor is of malty with a bitter hoppy finish. Beer is oily/smooth, but the flavors are a bit weak and nothing special.

(cask) Golden orange sporting a magnificent lathering..Sugar coated dried pineapples in the nose..flavors were heavy with malts, the Hops were somewhat subdued until the very end..grainy aftertaste. Some tasty stuff.

Nice full beige head topping a light amber body. Aroma is medium grapefruit. Taste is fairly big grapefruit, quite bitter, sweet, nothing to distinguish it.

Roasty red hue, good white head. Light grapefruit scent. Good hoppiness, milky mouthfeel. This place’s best brew, but unfortunately even it isn’t a ’great’ beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a deep amber, frothy white head and somne seroius lace. Nose is floral, clean and crisp, malt and citrus tones also noticed. Front is semi-sweet, top is light, the finish is all hops, dry, lightly acidic, and a fine IPA by any standards. Ranks #424 on my current 1000 beer master list.

I love Cask beers!!! I always thought the Four Peaks IPA was average, but after a little cask conditioning it smoothes out considerabely. Deep Amber color, dense rich off white head. Hoppy aroma, slightly sweet start, nice medium body, bitter/hop finish. Silky mouthfeel.

Cask offering: aroma is very fruity and citric. appearance of small particles, golden, dense haed that is creamy and sticky. hop burp from the extensive dry hopping of some hybrid-hop i had never heard of before this. are those cascades that make this thing so chewy?
Keg: Chunky froth, dense and sticky. aroma is buttery and toasted malt. flavors of passion fruit, tart pineapple, and a nice bitterness. Keg rating 3.7
