A very nicely balanced IPA--big malty flavor offset with hop citrus and flowers and a firm bitterness. Really excellent.

Brown colour with a dense tan head. Very dark for the style...but nice! Strong floral and citrus hop components in the smell along with some sweet malt. Medium-bodied; Assertive bitterness in the taste with a full hop flavour. Aftertaste somewhat mild but definitaley bittered from the hops. Overall, this is almost exactly what I wasn't expecting from the beer and wasn't disapointed! Pick this style up if you are a fan of the style at all. I got this twelve ounce bottle in a trade with CaptainCougar! Thanks again Tom! I sampled this beer on 19-September-2003.

I love the Hookah elephant label. This beer pours deep brown caramel colored with a big rocky tan head. Great looking beer. Big malt flavor that is combined with tons of hop juice. My kind of beer.

Hop damn!
This Indian princess looks like a Brown Ale but tastes like a hop monster, and it’s not that grapefruit hop flavor that I really love, its more of a tricky mellow bitterness that results in a astringent sourness, like lime peals. This one will linger on your palate for months. The nose is quit floral and the flavor may give you a pucker face, it's also a damn dry and spicy concoction. Pretty decent stuff!

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2003 I've changed my opinion about this beer. I've had to have the entire 6-pack to make up my mind. A deep unfiltered copper pour with a nice head. Tons of hops. Good flavor, and it lingers in your palate. Pretty good stuff, but still not a Stone :)

UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 ReRate-this is a solid IPA and i boosted the ratings. very well balanced and hoppy also. very dark amber appearance, especially for an IPA. Nice combination of hops and malts here. This has all the elements of a top notch IPA other than the fact that they dont come together all that well. Very close to Hop Devil, but just falls a little short. NOTE-the brew has lots of active yeast and is best if the yeast is poured into the glass. adds alot to the flavor.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2003 This beer looks like a homebrew with its bronze body, fine floating particulates, and undulating, velvety white head. Aroma of pine and peppery spice hops, candied fruit, and a hint of nuts. Full-flavored, rich in earthy malts, with an intense hop finale. An excellent unfiltered IPA with nice depth.

looks a little dark for an IPA. Also has a frothy head. Hopheads you should like this. It's a bit out of balance, but it's very tasty.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Deep mahagony color, malty molasses-like malts with some definite hop bite. Citrus (orange) and pine nose. Medium-full bodied.

BBB63 (6368) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Darker than standard IPA, copper hue with big head and very good lacing. Aroma of pine and aromatic hops, grapefruit and apple, burnt malts and smoke, and seaweed. The taste is very hoppy and bitter with some malt sweetness for roundness but still could have use a bit more. Dry and metallic finish with a touch of saltiness detected also. Medium-bodied with a frothy and lively mouthfeel. Pretty good brew that may rival those elite IPA's if slighty better balanced.
