Great IPA. I used to HATE (the capital letters are intentional) hoppy beers, but lately, I have become somewhat of a hop-head, and this beer just does it for me. Not as good as SN Celebration Ale...but good. I can really taste the cascade hops. The aroma was a little weak, but the beerís color and head slightly made up for it. This definitely is a hop-headís beer. Lots and lots of cascades. It mixes nice in a smooth, slightly creamy, malt flavor. Excellent...definitely on the buy list (well, when the Celebration Ale is out of stock).

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coppery amber color with very fine cream colored head. Aroma is floral and "beery." Flavor is caramelly with floral notes, followed by really strong herbal bitterness. Tastes good, but too long of a bitter finish for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy dull light amber. Medium head. Earthy aroma and old school bitter but dull cheesy hop character. Not great but old school.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours as a muddy amber, not particularly clear in an IPA glass. Very little hop aroma. Tastes very bitter with a little bit of malt flavors to back it. Itís like Pyramid added all hops early in the boil. This beer was a complete miss and disappointing for pyramid.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Virtually no aroma just a hint of hops, copper colored not much head. No distinctive taste just a bitter taste with an oily feel and a bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild caramel, light resiny and citrus hops, lightly toasted bread, a general bitterness to the finish, medium bodied. A very average ipa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very cloudy copper - not particularly attractive. Nice nose, though, with floral and pine scents. Taste is some citrus, sweet caramel malt and hops. Pretty solid IPA.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
very disappointing it kind of tastes like budweiser at first but finishes a little better. Aroma isnít to bad but the flavor is very off sweet then bitter and skunky no balance. I thought maybe just poor storage but reading the other reviews probably not.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Opaque orange copper, off-white foamy head fades fast. Citrus hop aroma and taste, nice fruitiness, some herbs and evergreen, medium caramel malts. Flat-soft carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Bitter citric finish. Nice enough flavor, a bit lifeless. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured a clear copper color with no head. The aroma was of bready malts, caramel and some light citrus hops. The taste was of caramel malts, lots of bread, cereal, some lingering citrus hops and some bitterness. This was pretty much a one dimensional beer and average.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice aroma, but taste is a little flat. Normal hop sharpness, appearance is great with high fluffy head. Finish is short, with mild lingering bitterness. Good, but not great.
