Bottle, pours slightly cloudy with a nice golden color. Fruity aroma with hints of grapefruit, citrus and light floral. Good hoppiness, great flavor and finish. A high quality IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 This is better than GI’s Impy IPA that cost almost $5 a bottle.
This inexpensive brew is better than many higher priced IPA’s. Many faint notes come together nicely-- nothing is overplayed and I leaves you guessing and wanting more. Lime/orange tea. More herbs/spices than most. Maybe banana or pear.

First impressions are wonderful with this beer. Aroma is all hops and citrus. Very inviting. It’s a light brown to dirty gold color and had a thick white head that never eniterly vanished. Taste delivered what aroma promised. Hops and citrus. Although I could have gone for a little more in the flavor it is still a great beer.

A hop lovers dream, as soon as the cap comes off you can smell the hoppy fruity aroma. The beer is a pale brown and settles in the glass with a thin beady head. The taste is as the aroma prmoises..full of hop and citrus maybe too hoppy for some.... the finish is long lasting and satisfying.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Bottle. Not a bad IPA, but not enough hops for me. Pretty nice mouthfeel with a hint of caramel. More noticable malt than most IPAs. If they added more hops I think they’d have something here.

Gold, crisp-looking pour with a milkshake head. Hop and spice aroma. The flavor was similar with hops, fleshy fruit, faint anise at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I would’ve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

Bottle dated best by 1/14/07. Amber pour w/ 1 finger white head. Medium floral hop aroma w/ a hint of spice and a nice caramel malt background. Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. The hop flavor has a nice juicy quality to it. Malts and hops are well balanced. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Firm hops aroma. Pretty light golden amber. Smooth for an IPA. Relies on the hops without a disctinct citrus flavor. Thought that it might have a little more kick for an IPA. But looking at it overall as a pale ale, it is very good.
