UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 Deep clear copper body, topped by a creamy and dense off-white head. Looks inviting. Aroma: grapefruit/citrus, leafy. Flavor: some citrus presence, a little balancing sweetness, earthy bitterness and maybe something like pepper. Very traditional IPA.

Draft at an Irish pub in Berkeley, CA. Pours orangish with a light white head. The aroma is hoppy citrus. The taste is big very big on the hops for a regular IPA. Nice overall feel great IPA.

Pour was a nice light copper color with a two-finger off-white head. Head hung around for a bit and offered some lacing. The aroma was of floral hops, some citrus and underlying sweetness. Pretty one-dimensional flavor with hops dominating and not enough sweet malt to offer any balance. Slightly metallic mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle - pours clear rust with lots of suspended particles that aren’t going anywhere. White head leaves very nice lace. Fruity and floral hop aroma is quite beautiful. Body nicely robust, though flavour is slightly one dimensional. Fruity hops, but with a good amount of balancing malt. This is a quality IPA, one I will definitely get again. 43 different hops? Wow - nothin’ like the good ole US of A for some old fashioned extremism.....

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle at dicarlo’s tasting. this is a pretty average to good IPA. it was drank after several belgian samples and some other styles, and it was nice to be able to point out to my friends exactly what hops are since they shined so much in contrast to the previous beers we’d had. i’ll have to rerate it someday, but this seemed pretty decent all around. um, crisp and cascadish.

What a surprise I’m at JFK airport and i see this on tap. I jumped on this one and i was pretty happy with my choice. It’s not really special, it’s your normal american IPA with a big hop bite and aroma. The label claims 43 hops...i’m not sure why you’d ever put that many varieties in a beer, and i’d be the first to call BS on that one. It’s a good regular IPA. I’d get it again.

Pours a dark orange with mall head. Very dry taste at the end not much bite, as in citrusy or bitterness. Piney after taste big time.
