3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I got a sixer of this while I was in st johnsburg,VT this weekend.Got in line to get into Coventry.Had one out of the bottle and was like what the heck is this hoppiest in the states crap!Now I am home and have poured one into a trappist glass and Im thinking this is like a slightly hoppier Harpoon.Pretty decent stuff.Hoppy,very hoppy my ass.Good EIPA though.I think I like this better than Harpoon.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber color,small off white head that had a decent hangtime then faded to a small lace.The aroma was Hoppy and grapefruit with a faint pine hint and a somewhat sweet side coming through as well.Nice mild malt with a good hop presence some grapefruit and all in a nice light flavor that makes this brew fairly easy to drink without the usual heavy bitterness that some can have.Nicely done and well worth trying again.Thanks go to Oldgrowth for sending this bottle my way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber in color with an adequate white head. Good hop aroma and bitterness. Not the "hoppiest" I've had, but a decent IPA

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Not bad, not great. Darker golden color; thin, white head with some lacing down the glass. Nice, strong citrus smell, and floral. Feels crisp and clean. Initial flavor is slightly fruity, with nice hop bitterness at the end. No idea what the description is talking about with this "HOPPIEST brew" business...yeah it's somewhat hoppy, but certainly not one of the hoppiest IPAs in the states.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a lite amber. Rich caramel notes in the nose. Maybe some EKG dry hops but no American hops for sure. Dry light and piney flavors with a nice hop bite at the end. A good pale but a lot to lite in hops to be a good IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangeish tan color with a short lived off white head. Nice lace. Sweet citrus hop aroma with a bit of a lighter fruit sweetness. (maybe peach or apricot) Flavor is mild malty sweet with a fair bitter. Needs more hop flavor. Palate is slightly dry with a nutty after taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foamy/frothy head that disappears rather quick. Medium orange color, very clean. Great smelling beer. Strong, sweet citrus smell with a little floral hints. Pretty decent hoppiness at first but it ends too quickly. Not a bad ipa could could use another hop or 2 before they can proclaim themselves as the "hoppiest".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good hoppy aroma with some malt, beer poured with a white head that lasted about normal time. Clear dark golden colored beer. Good hop flavor and bitterness with some malt to go with it. The hop flavors remind me of english style kent goldings? This is deinately not one of the hoppiest beers that I've had but I really do enjoy the hop flavors and taste of this beer. A good example of an english IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
HOPPIEST??? I don't think so. Pale orange in color with a small white head. Hop is the main charecter but not to the degree stated in the description. Ends abruptly.
