3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
first thing i noticed was this is probably the clearest IPA iíve ever seen. moderate citrus aromas and fairly well-balanced. not too bitter. pretty light body for an IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold color, 3/4 inch head lasted halfway thru, good lacing. Moderately hopped and left a long thin hop taste. Initially seemed hoppier, but that may have been due to a slight lack of malt. Refreshing, though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not the worlds best IPA. Lacks the true hop bite and has minimal head. I did enjoy the aroma and thought...Wondered, if the draft might be just a tad better. Still, any IPA is pretty darn good as far as Iím concerned. Makes me feel like getting out there and mowing the lawn, er, I donít really have a lawn yet but...Some day.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold. Foamy but small white head. Light carbonation. Yeasty aroma, grapes and light floral hops. Medium light body. Fruity with a grape juice hoppiness. Mediocre malt depth and a lackluster hop profile. I remember this being better. Finishes with a fruity alcohol mix and slight bitterness. What happened?

Not as hoppy as most IPAís, but a wonderful beer on tap when dining out or from a bottle(into a glass) doing yardwork

Decent IPA. Not as heavily hopped as I had hoped but very enjoyable. Where was the sediment?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent head on a pale golden amber body. Floral nose. Flavor is a balance of malt and hops though very light for an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
