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!

courtesy of fiulijn - hazy amber-orange colour with a poor head retention; solid hoppy aroma with notes of pine needles, apples and gentian; medium-bodied with some stickiness; some dryness and a solid and long lasting bitterness, herbal finish with more notes of gentian

Bottle from snojerk (i believe). Pour is light golden color and a ridiculous head that I had to wait for ever for to chill out. Aroma and flavor dominated by grassy floral notes. A little different than what I am used to but totally enjoyable. A little sugary fruitiness in the flavor as well. Some grape and apple. Drinks pretty well.

undsioux7 (868) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Light golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and lemon. Taste is the same with a small amount of malt to balance and a touch of bitterness. Nice but nothing special.

Lovely bouquet of citrus and slight cotton candy. Clear, light golden in color with small, white head. Interesting melange of hop flavor - some citrus - grapefruits and limes, slight fruity hops and syrupy-like maltiness. The willamette add a neat Britishy feel to this left coaster. Very rich mouthfeel for such a light IPA, Some lingering resin. Dang, I am glad I can buy these locally!

22oz bottle from Southbay Drugs. Nice hazy orange color that looks like there was no filtering involved, cool. Nice hoppy smell but then a the taste departs to a more balanced flavor than I expected. I thought this was going to be a hop bomb like their hop juice DIPA. I bet these Left Coast beers would be great growler candidates. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-09-2007 23:01:25

Draft at brewpub. Pours a hazy straw leaning gold. A nice lemon and orange hop flavors at first with some peppery accents. Syrupness builds a little then lets off to a more light fruit juice flavor. Mouth is nicely bitter and fairly dry for and IPA. Decent IPA.

notalush (5514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Bomber - pours a lightly hazy gold, with a small, soapy lace - aroma of herbal hops and buttered toast - oily mouthfeel, moderate carbonation - flavor of astringent hop bitterness, honey sweetness, fairly noticeable diacetyl - the hops get even more astringent in the finish - it takes a lot of effort to fuck up an IPA, but by God, they’ve done it (okay, maybe "fuck up" is strong, since I’m still gonna drink this whole damn bomber) - disappointing considering the other Left Coast/Oggis brews I’ve had have been quite solid - I now hold out no hope for the bottle of Tripel I also bought today.

IrishBoy (4001) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Draft at Garden Grove location; Nose of citrus hops. Clear gold with a medium white head. Flavor is light bitterness. OK but not that hoppy!

Barreras (1367) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with good head and lacing. Taste is mild for an IPA, hoppy just as advertised. A drinkable IPA but nothing special of note.
