UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 Bottle - Draft
A very bitter finish on this one - sorta grassy....hazy orangey/amber color beer with off-white head. very dry hoppy finish. Not necessarily an IPA I would go out of my way to recommend if youíre in the SD area... now i laugh at this old rating, this IPA is the shit.

Big thanx goes to axilla for this one. Pours a hazy orange with a slightly tanned head. Smells of grapefruit and hops. Quite dry and bitter. Tastes of malts and loads of hops. The beer has a slight, nice pilsner quality. Typical US hops profile... yum. Medium to full bodied.Long piney and grapefruity finish. Very nice.

This was a good IPA. I would try this again but more local offerings (HI.P.A., Nugget Nectar) are cheaper and fresher.

Great stuff here, really great IPA. Delicious aroma and hop flavor to match. Not quite up to the 90 minute standard, but still a canít-miss IPA.

What a great IPA. Pours a medium orange color with a nice head and tons of lacing. The smell was big citrus and hops. There is a nice bitter kick, and tastes of grapefruit, hops and spices. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Small ivory fizzy head, fair amount of lacing, floaties, cloudy/hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor was extremely hoppy, grapefruit and citrus. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. This was just too hoppy for my palate. This is a true hop heads delight for sure.

Aroma was very hoppy, with plenty of citrus, grapefruit in particular. Taste was also hoppy, dry, bitter, but balanced nicely with solid malt presence. Nice.
