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 (145) - 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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Kinz (3506) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
bb (7335) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Draft. Amber color with little head. Aroma has slight citrus hops. Taste shows lots on pine tar and citrus with a moderate toffee malt backbone. Slight off-taste in the finish, but otherwise dry with a hop lingering.

4.2
   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Poured a coppery color with an average sized off-white head. The smell of this beer is amazing. Very hoppy nose, citrus and pine. Flavor does not quite live up to the aroma but is still very good. Not quite as hoppy as expected but well balanced. Creamy mouthfeel and dry finish. A great session beer.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Lovely, flora Cascade aroma. Clear auburn color with a bit of a fluffy head. Creamy mouthfeel, but not nearly the creaminess of alesmith. Nice bitterness that lingers.

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
3fourths (8549) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Big cascade hop aroma, dark copper hue. Flavor is a little lacking up front, but good behind. Bitter throughout, a good example of a quality IPA. Not overdone, right balance of mild fruit with bitter WC hops.
