I expected little here and was pleasently supprised. Nice hoppy aroma, very inviting with it floral nose. Flavore had a nice malt backbone and mouthfeel with a nice shot of IPA hoppy bite. A good effort here. Check it out.

Purchased on my holiday to New York. Hoppy, citrus and floral nose. Clear golden hue with quite lively looking carbonation and a white foamy head. Reasonably hopped taste not as brutal as say Hop Devil. Citrussy crisp dry taste and finish with a good helping of hop bitterness not massively complex and a lttle gutless for an IPA

Clear dark golden color,fizzy white head. Big fresh floral hop nose noticable on the pour. Good sweet malty notes in the nose. Flavors are a bit light starting with a malty sweetness fading to a pleasant hop bite. Juicy mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish. Not bad.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2004
This is pretty much the only legit IPA to be found on tap in Rochester. Pours a nice golden copper with a thick head. Very hoppy in both aroma and flavor. The only fault I could find with this one is the light bodied character. A well-rounded beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Poured a deep golden/copper color with a thick off white head, very slight haze. Big orangey hop aroma, decent malt undertones. Flavor was a little malty at first, nice hop bite at the end. Fairly subtle, but very well balanced and very pleasant tasting. Medium to fuller body. Very nice.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2004
More like a Pale ale than IPA; lacked a characteristic hop bite and definite grapefruit, piney, resiny notes. Pales in comparison to other fine IPAs I've had. Medium/light body, nothing substantial. Just very ordinary.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Poured orange with a thick white head. Aroma of hops, not overpowering. Has a light caramel flavor. Very nice IPA.

Lightly golden ale with a medium-sized, white, fizzy head. Nice aroma. Well balanced IPA.

DYCSoccer17 (3582) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2004
On tap--Pours blonde with slight twinge of orange. Seems too blonde for an IPA. Slight off-white head. Aroma is fruitier than expected-lots of citrus with grapefruit as well. Very bitter and very hoppy throughout with grapefruit type flavor. Decent IPA-slightly one dimensional and appears to have too much carbonation too.

12 oz bottle. Nice light amber color. White head. Light sweet hoppy aroma. Surprising malty flavor with a mild bitter hops finish. A different IPA than others that I have had. The malty flavor was unexpected but not bad.
