A nice coppery beer with a nice haze, very thick copperish head. Good hops bite, with a touch of almost a creme. A tinge of a citrus flavor, as typical of an IPA, but not the same. A good crisp bitterness that is unexpected. A really good, satisfying IPA.

Very nice deep amber-red pour with nice head. Great nose full of hops and malt. Citrus flavor and malt make this a very fine IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 Re-rate. Pours a cloudy dark reddish brown, with an amazing head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a bit of malt. Sweet start with a little bit of malt in the middle and a nice hop finish.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 thanks BierBauch! (had only 2 bottles of this, until...) UPDATE 4/29/05: english pint / uprated a point / slightly active and slightly hazy copper body with a lot of tiny floaties, and with a peach highlight. a good, small, tight and white head diminishes slowly, then after each sip a nice ring around the glass sparkles as a reminder to where i left off. so far, so great! yeaup... a great IPA... smooth, slightly prickly, slightly cremey, and refreshing. primarily caramel, and grapefruit and pine flavors, while the aroma is mostly a malty yet floral perfume. excellent brew--the tusks really dig into my tongue ;o)

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

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2003
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 :)

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 5, 2003
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.
