3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 extremely hopped beer. If you love hops you"d probably like this beer, the hops are kinda bitter and very dominant and I like my IPA"s hoppy but not this hoppy, all you taste is strong hop bitterness. Okay beer.

Super citrusy, fruity hop aroma, but a little noticeable malt, too. Hazy light golden amber color, that would make this beer only partially filtered, then. Flavor also has some nice malt sweetness leaking through the hop juices. Very fruity hop flavors. Balanced throughout, even to the aftertaste, which has some pine and lightly bready maltiness. Pretty good!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Fair amount of bitterness matched nicely with a dollop of sweetness. Gorgeous amber/orange color and spicy aroma.

Tasty stuff with heaps of hops. One of the finer IPA’s I have had. Still seemed to have a little sweetness mixed in with all those hops which I liked.

Nice malt flavor, underplayed behind a wonderful hop presence. Nice aroma, but it’s the heavy hop bitterness that gets all the attention in the beer. It definitely has that fresh, ’craft-brewed’ flavor. Drinking one of these made me want another.
