Very citrusy. There is a strong hop aroma, Columbus? Very good beer, but you must not try and drink it too cold. It is a little astringent and a bit over carbonated when cold. It is well balanced at normal serving temps.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Strong grapefruit aroma, cloudy and citrusy with a nice fruity head. Kind of a weak flavor at first. Almost a chalky aftertaste. This is not one of my favorites.

Nice IPA... good NW hop character, but not very complex like the best IPA's. I gave a few extra points for the alc. content.

Well, mixed emotions. on one hand I like the "in your face" bitter kick of this one on the other hand I didn't like the malty sweetness. Still good though!

This was a classy IPA. Not too bitter but great balance. Recommended.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Medium bodied typical northwest micro brew hops light on the aroma heavy on the bitterness. Malty enough but the malt loses to the hops. A good everyday beer

hvac4sl (30) - Dowling, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Crystal clear, golden colored, with a thin little head. Smells slightly of hops. Taste is thin and bitter, with no malt taste. Overall I think that this beer could be much better with a little higher ending S.G.(more sweetness).

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Pours light straw color with a bubbly head. Very hoppy from the nose on through to the finish. Not enough malt backgroungd to support the abundance of hops. A good IPA but could be a lot better.
