3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sulfury nose with plenty of hops. Orange color and tall biege spongy head that leaves legs on the glass. Strong hop taste with a bright bitterness. Medium body and rough gritty finish and mouth feel. Nice American IPA for sure.

Very hoppy, grass, hay aroma. Orange with medium frothy head. Long lasting bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Had this while sailing the contaminated waters of lake erie..Had a nice hop bite, under developed malts, and a refreshing mouthful..better than average IMO, and all my friends thought it was great (that actually means nothing though)

A very drinkable IPA. Not to hoppy, but still full of character. A good balance of the fruity nose and bitter finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Pours a dark golden/light amber, with a large cloudy white head, lacing is superb in it's sheeting and strength. Aroma is mostly strong floral hops, with a bit of caramel malt holding it together. Flavor is slightly malty up front, with a big juicy hop finish that dominates the palate and lasts for a while. Medium bodied, extremely drinkable.

I dont know what to say. The taste was way too bitter and it didnt go down that smooth. I didnt like it at all.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very different IPA, way too strong for an IPA. Bitter aftertaste, even more bitter than the ESB. Yuck. Worth trying, but nothing i would ever buy a case of

Much smoother on tap than in bottles. Has a nice flavor. On a second rating, though, I really don’t care for it all that much. It lacks a lot of flavor and although its pretty to look at, I won’t buy it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I like IPA’s, so I thought I would try this one. More a deep golden color than copper, big white rapidly dissipating head. Hoppy aroma, though not as strong as some. Very smooth with a slight bitter finish. Not a lot of bite to this one, seems to be fairly well balanced with the malts. This is not a bad IPA, just average. I like mine with a little more punch to them.

Not much bite on the finish, a very mild IPA. Thanks JPKnight22 for this brew.
