COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and floral, with the beautiful aroma of fresh hops and a sublime maltiness from gently roasted barley.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Dark peache and roasted wood flavors. Very musty along with the fruity hopped flavors. Bitterness is nicely balanced & placed well within the drink. Tongue is well scratched. A wonderful experience.

Dark Gold, Big hops in the initial taste that persist throughout the palate. The malt flavor is there, but still dominated by hops. Very Resiny, note of pine as well. Crisp, tart finish.

One of the better beers from Washington State previously available at BCL. Quite hoppy but a great tasting IPA. Liked, and wish the BCL would still carry this.

I had this on tap at the pub and in the bottle I brought home. Damn good both places, but I'm rating the bottle. Sharp pine needle nose, copper orange color with a thin white head. Lots of hop flavor in this one with pine, citrus and peach notes coming through over the sweet malts. Stong bitter finish with a pleasant, lasting hop residue. Very good IPA.

I liked the natural quality of this beer, how it wasn't trying to be extremely complex or rich. Simple is sometimes better. Loved the dry quality.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 This one gets points just for being unique, in addition to its innate quality. Starts off a tad on the malty side, and then shifts to a honey/nectar taste. Then you are walloped by a full-on floral hops brigade! I would go so far as to call the hops rose-like! There is also a bit of Belgian yeast-like funkiness in this beer, which I see as an attribute. Very malty, very flowery, very unique, very good! My palate is reeling.

An extremely yummy IPA, that I need to pick up some more of, because it is just good to have around. Extremely crisp, with a very smooth fragrant fruity aroma that accompanies the taste and compliments very well. A very good balance of hops and malt that goes back in morth in a battle for taste domination. Leaving a very strong aftertaste, that makes you want to pop open another right away. I highly recommend this one.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2002
I’d have to agree it’s out of balance toward the crisp, sharp hops (they make the sides of my tongue curl up!), but I kind of like that aftera whole bunch of super-hopped and super-sweetly malted left-coast IPAs. Quite a good one. Floral but no wallflower that’s for sure. Brash...definitely not creamy. I think I remember calling Bridgeport’s IPA almost creamy...not this bad boy. Enjoy!

Gorgeous sparkling amber. Lasting off white head. Tiny bead. Grapefruit hop nose. Fruity hop taste with long strong finish

Copper color, little head. Citrus hop aroma with a hint of this weird malty/salty/pine needle aroma. Flavor is sweet with a slightly roasted bitter finish.
