MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Ap: extremely bubbly on open and pour… very thick foamy white head that disapted very slowly w/ lacing down the glass sides. Poured a light golden color a little cloudy Ar: grapefruit and northwestern hops very crisp a touch of grass in the scent Pa: good carbonation a bit dry on the tongue nice full body Flvr: a bit dry heavy bitter hoppy flavor no malts fairly simple Ovrl: a very fresh clean taste, great smell, but the taste was defintally lacking, nothing except hops and not really a powerful hops, I think I’ve had farts more complex than this beer. thanks to Dave.

IndianaRed (2466) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Bottle Pours a nice deep golden, slightly hazt with a modest but lasting white head. Basic malty and fairly strong hop aroma.Something off in it though. Flavors are woody, cardboardy and piney hops. Kind of a mediciney note as well. Moderate carbonation, Moderately rich palate quite deep bitter trailer. Nothing special.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2004
I would’ve guessed that this was an IPA - killer hops, but a thinner body. Aroma - great - citrus, sweet, very hoppy, fresh. Malts were sweet and tasty, but thin - well, maybe typical of an APA - I kept thinking of this as an IPA. Hops are piney, citrus - this was one of the more grapefruity beers that I’ve had. Finish is long and bitter - Really good

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Clear, bronze color, full and fresh, lush, dotted head. Aroma: full-on hops, with a piney bite, plenty of citrus, grapefruit, mm, hmm, but a bit of lemon, too, a twist of lime, very bitter and twisted, all around, this feels the very essence of twisting and peeling and gettin’ up in the heart of hoppiness, like sniffing the very floor of a primeval forest! Taste: succulent, to start with! , there’s the glorious hop presence, of course, but still a toasty, tasty malt back-up --spicy, bready, light-to -medium bodied, and brisk on the palate. Feels light, but the hoppy, hopy character prevails throughout, assisted by caramel tones. Feels like an Anti-Dreadnaught, as it doesn’t sting too hard, yet still delivers a good deal of hoppitude, with a mellowness that is it’s own reward. Great hop texture & flavor, but lacks just a bit from malt. Liked it, though, like it lots.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Deep golden body with mild carbonation and a thin but tight sudsy head with decent legs. Botanic aroma of flowers and mint plus grapefruit, cheese and counter-balancing malts. Aroma is distinct and original. Flavor is hoppy and more familiar. Very piney with a hint of tobacco, but that could be from Mark. Considerably bitter and a bit harsh.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 30, 2002
Toronado: on tap. Hop fix is in. Lacks a bit of crispness, a perfect example of the American strong as it defies categorization otherwise.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Clear golden appearance, moderate head formation. Mild lemony aroma. Hoppy palate, fairly bitter with sweet lemon and mild ginger running through. Decent bite in the finish.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Enjoyed 2004 @ Full Sail tasting room in Hood River, Oregon--Poured a light copper body with a fluffy one-finger head. Grassy, fruity, and pretty darn biting on the palate. Not a lot of malt flavor comes out in this hop monster. It is more hops than anything (hence the name). This is one tasty (though unbalanced) springtime brew.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Golden amber with a small white head. Bready malt with lots of hops, leaning towards an IPA. The flavor is much the same and is defintely very close to being an IPa rather than an APA. medium dry body. nice session beer.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Pours a light orange. Big hop aroma; fresh cut grass, a farmer’s field in the summer. Taste is hoppy, of course, but not as overwhelming as the aroma. More citrus in the flavor than the aroma. Finish is a combination of sweet and sour. Decent beer but lacking something. This could have been served a little cooler.
