wow. more than i expected from pyramid. aroma is sweet and syrupy. Pour is clear and golden with suddy head that spots up and leaves right away. Up front taste follows suit, and the hop kick is right where it should be. Mouthfeel is creamy, thick, and satisfying, lacing is small but not too important after you take a drink. An extremely good beer from a not so micro brewery. This is what i like in an ipa, sweet front, heavy mouth and hop linger. Closest competetor with my favorite IPA so far. Nice! Rerate: This beer is really good. nothing wrong that i can tell

Nice gasoline aftertaste. Not too hoppy but better than a lager. Complex sweetness that makes you want to drink the whole six pack in one setting. That’s what I just did. Wish I had more!

Deep red color is very nice. This is a pretty darn good American style IPA with lots and lots of Cascade hops. Very enjoyable flavor...yes its out of balance, it’s supposed to be extra hoppy, that’s the way IPA’s are meant to be and American style IPAs in particular have made it the norm to really load up on the hops. I could drink this one on a regular basis.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Pours out orange/golden color with little head. Nice citrus flavor, very spicy from hops. Sweet finish from malt. Really great IPA. Really enjoy it.

Has a good color and head like most Pyramid brews that I have tasted. Has a stronger hop taste than some IPAs but thats why you’re drinking it right?

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Gosh, I really hate to admit that I like this beer. This is really a good beer. Nice hoppy aromas of hops. Tangy grapefruit hop flavors along with light malt. Its a little thin, but still a very good IPA.

I was just planning a trip to Hong Kong again and looked up the website for the East End Brewery. I recalled my fond memories of this beer, both in the pub but also as a take-away when I decided to read my rating. What?! Not here! thankfully my note taking over the years has improved and I have them still. All I can essentialy say is that this style of beer really typifies the essence of the amber beverage. A great coppery hue with fine crisp head. A real hit of citrus and pine in the nose with a floral afterthought. Excellent bitterness and balance in this beer with an unctuous oiliness that pleases the palate. This is a very fine beer. Please Aussie brewers, do something like this.

Bottle. Poured a orange/bronze color a little light than most IPA’s. Despite reading a lot of reviews that said the head was fizzy and dissipated, my pour created a 2-finger foamy head that lasted throughout. I loved this beer. Lots of hops and citrus...and a super long finish. Cheers!
