We heap the hops into each batch of our Thunderhead IPA. A golden nectar with a striking floral aroma, Thunderhead holds a harmonious balance between its bold hop bitterness and subtle malt backbone.

Bottle. i liked this brew, but overall it was an average IPA. Probably could have used a little more malt to further balance it out.

Ok ipa. Slight citrus taste. Good beer given that the only other "good" beer in the place is a blue moon.

Not the big bouquet of floral, citrus, greens I like to encounter in my IPAs, and less bitter as well. However, not a terrible IPA. Will drink when the greater IPAs are unavailable.

Draft, Pyramid Alehouse, Berkeley, CA. Nice IPA with a sort of dark straw/pale orange color. Hoppy and bitter with a lasting, medium-sized head.

Nice alcohol strength, well concealed. Bold color and flavors with a preponderance of bitterness. Not overly smooth or well balanced, but tasty and drinkable nonetheless.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Thanks to ucusty for this one. Poured from a 12oz. bottle, best before 02/07/08 Paired with Spicy Chicken & Black Bean Rice Aroma: Smell of lemon, kind of faint though & mild hops. Appearance: Pours a gold color with average carbonation revealing a 2 finger thick head at the end. Flavor: Moderate bitter taste with a grapefruit aspect, a little zest in the mouth. Palate: The hops are apparent but restrained & fade pretty quickly. Also, i like a good hops aftertaste but this one didn’t really have one. Overall: The label says "bursting with hops" but i found it lacked the punch i was expecting. It drinks well but i wouldn’t rush for another one. Not a bad beer by any stretch but nothing remarkable either. The hops kind of diappointed me, thought it would be more in your face. Just average IMHO.

NIce spicy hop aroma. Good color. Good Hop Flavor. It seems a little light on body however for an IPA. Also it seemed a little over carbonated. A decent craft Amercian Style IPA

Although not as strong as I usually like my IPA, this one is pretty good. Has a slightly fruity taste. Very affordable as six pack.
