This is a good IPA. Foamy white head that stuck around for the entire glass. Nice hop bitterness with citrus and tobacco flavors. Very drinkable, these guys continue to impress me with their beers.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2004
Not much for head. Some lacing. Light amber. Restrained but enjoyable citrus hop aroma. Subtle hop flavours. Light IPA for the west coast but enjoyable.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Orange color with a small white head. Lots of pine in the aroma and flavor. Flavor has a lot of pine hop flavor with a heavy bitterness. A little sweetness but not much.

Very nice aroma with a flavor to match. One of the best IPA’s I have ever tasted.

dahatherley (35) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours a cloudy reddish orange body with frothy white head. Inviting floral hop aroma. Nicely balanced flavor with the malts eventually succumbing to the spicy hop finish. Have had this several times and it never disappoints.

frankR (144) - Davis, California, USA - APR 1, 2004
Pours thick with a thick white head. Liquid is cloudy yellow. Nose is very intense floral hops, smells like good cannabis. Body is warm hops, well balanced. Overall, excellent IPA.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Bottle:(bomber) medium in color more brown than amber. Falls right in line with many above average IPA's. A good beer that just lacks the stereophonic hop pizzaz of Hop Devil, Ruination, and other IPA's to be had. Alcohol is hidden well by the sweet maltiness.

3.8
   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 1, 2004
I knew this was going to be a good one as soon as I cracked the cap. Huge hop aroma hits the nose. Fresh and citrusy bouquet makes my mouth water. Nice slightly murky amber color with medium head, fully lasting. Flavor of hops rinses across the tongue. The high alcohol of this beer never even crosses the mind. Lovely cascade aftertaste lingers in the mouth.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Combined notes from draft and bottled tastings. Medium orange, nice head. Big aroma of orange, grapefruit, and pine. Grapefruit hops melt into resinous, spicy finish. Just enough malts to balance. Earthy notes in there too.
