COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SILVER METAL 2000 Great American Beer Festival! Big, bold hop flavors define this wonderful India Pale Ale. This is a stronger, hoppier version of a regular pale ale. Loads of Columbus, Cascade, Willamette and Centennial hops are used in this beer that would please any hop-head!

My favorite of the 6 Oggi's that I've tried. Draft, orangey-amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is full on hoppy grapefruit with some sweetness. Nice IPA flavor, lots strong malt backbone with crisp citrus hops and a long tart finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and round. Nice brew!

This one poured a slightly cloudy amber color with a not too long lasting white pearly head. The aroma had some semblance of floral hops, but its truly hard to make out and thus the lowered rating. The flavor is pretty much kick ass however! This is a very mild IPA. The hops are not overwhelming as most West Coast IPA's are, so this was a nice change. It takes a while for that Oggi's yeast to kick in, but damn does it come through in the clutch. Some malt in the finish. Very dry and some floral in the finish. Good mouthfeel, not a ton of carbonation. I like it.

Medium amber color. Aroma is malty and floral. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are grapefruity. Well balanced. Smooth. Nice IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 Sampled@Oggis Carmel Mt.Ranch. Cloudy amber color with a thin tan head. A little hops to the nose. Starts sweet and finishes grapefruit bitter. Good balance.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Slightly cloudy, pale amber. Butterscotch/caramel aroma and flavor. Slightly sticky. Grapefruit juice bitterness in the finish. Two extremes that balance each other well.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Nice fresh hoppy aroma, light cloudy amber color with a thin tan head. HOPS...what else would you expect from an IPA...there's a good balance of sweetness and bitterness and overall this is a pretty good IPA

The "pines" is completely appropriate. Highly interesting beer. Red-brown color -- sweet aroma with some deep port in there, too -- a bit of butterscotch over the hops. Kind of a pine-flavored butterscotch flavor with a long-lingering hoppy finish with quite a bit of (good) bitterness. Flavor stays with you for a long time. After a few sips, all you taste is a bitter tea-like flavor (not unpleasant).

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 12, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 On tap GABF 02: Citrus exploding, on pools of oil. Not quite clear or hazy orange color. Bitterness lasts forever. "Sharp" tasting (or feeling).

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2002
Cask. Name is appropriate, as it smells like a pine tree. While it’s supposed to be hoppy, it has very few malts. To me, tastes more under-malted than overhopped. Bit creamy, but too thin and lacks any malt backbone.

(cask) Amber with some head. Sweet pine aroma. Flat; strong pine hops, hint of grapefruit too. Unbalanced -- no malt presence at all.
