A complex and artistically balanced multi-layered IPA (India Pale Ale) with an intense finish of cascade hops.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2003
No head retention on a medium amber body. Smells like sweet malts, tastes like watered down hops. This is pretty weak for an IPA, but would make for an acceptable American Pale Ale. A bitter, metallic finish.

notalush (5561) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Copper color. Buttery, hoppy aroma. Those two things make it seem pleasant, but then you take a sip. This is thin bodied, with some slight traces of malty sweetness. The hop level is good, but there is something about it (maybe the combination of hops used) that clashes and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. A bit disappointing.

jgb9348 (5320) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Nice copper colour, and a long-lasting off-white head. Slightly hoppy aroma, not too strong though. A decently hoppy taste balanced pretty well with some malt. Long-lasting aftertaste as well. I'm happy I got to try this, although its not my favourite IPA, it ranks pretty high on the list!

Radek Kliber (6876) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2003 Nice aromatic smell. Medium intensivity, slightly parfumy. Thick impressive head. Bright amber color. Strong IPA flavours. Very clean and decently balanced which is not always the case in IPAs. Very intensive, and rich.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Reddish gold color, thick white lacing on glass. Peachy citrus nose. Nice hop presence but not overpowering like I expect in an IPA today. A good session beer.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 24, 2002
A nice IPA,...nice. Hints of grapefruit with a good body. Well balaced. Good but not great.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2002
This beer poured a copper gold color and formed a nice bubbly white head that left some circular lace. There was a medium amount of carbonation present. The aroma was heavily hoppy, with traces of citrus. The flavor also was very hoppy with some grain elements present. The finish was a bit bitter, but not bad. A nice stab by an American company at an English style IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 8/13/02: Orangeish brown which seaps into the frothy and rambunctious head..
nose was filled with deep carmel malt w/ a tad of hops just peaking its head into the picture...
Apples skinned alive and forced to undergo chinese carmel torture..drip..drip..
Fresh hops just starting to flower...
the hops were hidden like a female in Afghanistan..and the malts were greedy Polygamists taking over the whole damn place...
Re-rate 8/19/02: I'll say this...the 7% is hidden..hidden well my brothren! and i notice hops in the back of the finish too..o.k. Ill add a point..
