True to style, this is extremely heavily-hopped. Lots of aroma to go with it. Hopheads, enjoy.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2003 Another nice offering from Harpoon. Very true to style with a moderately agressive hop flavor and aroma. One of my favorite IPA's.

very yellow in color. Lots of hops up front, finish isn’t so bitter and on the malty side.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2002
Clear gold in color, nice white head and decent lace. Nose is malt, clean and fresh, front sweet, top is light, the finish is acdic, dry, and pleasantly hopped, a good beer as its a ’Balmy 107 degrees’ here in Phoenix.

legion242 (2143) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2002
Pale orange in color; White, thin, dense head; Aroma was much bready-er then expected. Slightly cedar-like qualities in the palate. Perhaps a bit more satisfying then most stupid American IPAs.

Very hoppy, even for an I.P.A, but still a good beer.Re-Rate 5/24/02 Extremely floral hop aroma, little head retention, and a dark orange appearance. Watery palate, middle is dry and acidic, and it finishes fruity, hoppy, and dry. This is the best IPA I’ve had besides DFH’s.

There are two stark characteristics of this beer - it is lighter in color than a lot of IPA’s, and there is something off with the aroma, an almost fishy smell. Maybe it’s the Boston water. Otherwise, thaf flavor was above average.
