UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 This beer has too many hops for my tastes. Really turned me off in the flavor department. Rerate: It has been 3 years since I last had this, and I actually enjoy this beer now. It is a very drinkable IPA, but it does have an agressive taste that does not get old.

Honey-gold colour with slight haze and a small white head. Strong and cloying hop aroma with heavy grapefruit notes. Flavour is quite astrigent, with a dry citric bitterness overpowering anything else that might be in there.

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2003
Appealing light cloudy appearance. Nice mild hoppy smell. Strong taste compared to smell. Pretty good but not great IPA. Some hops but not enough for me. Still a good beer.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2003
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.

groovinhigh (170) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2003
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.

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
