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

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.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Surprisingly good. I wasn't impressed with their hefeweizen but this was great. Smelled like grapefruit in a flower garden. Tasted like it too. Some sweet fruitiness for balance. Good IPA! Re-rate: A little overboard with the hoppiness.

Ok comes in 12 oz brown stubbie..usual Pyramid label. THis is one nice looking beer..nice slightly hazy orange colour with a large frothy pure white head..thennit shrinks but still leaves good lacing. Nice fresh hoppy aroma..very spicy MM nice smooth IPA yet still has plenty of hop "bite " at the end..very "zingy" indeed..I also detect a faint malt flavour Most adventureous on the tongue. Very drinkable IPA..I was surprised I had come to expect nothing much from Pyramid..this is the best beer of theirs I have tried so far..good brew.

Good stuff! Bottle poured a nice hazy amber with a good white head but thin lacing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Great hops flavor with hints of grapfruit. Hopps lays nice on the palate making this a good easy drinking IPA.

Perfect lacing on the glass. light amber color. basic hop aroma, but that’s what I adore. hop bitterness monster. Great IPA. very bitter finish.

This is a quite good beer! Unexpectedly, this beer is bursting with hop aromas and flavors, yet is mellowed out with a wonderful combiniation of pale malts. This beer is a wonderful catch, and is abundant in my area, for only $7.99 six-pack. This is a better than good beer, with an even better pricetag. Could be as good as Dogfish Head 60 minute, if you are looking for pure hop pleasure!

Sampled this one on draught at the brewery in Seattle, WA. Pours to a bright, deep golden color, with a thick, creamy white head, and a good carbonation. This nose on this beer is zesty, with good piney and citrus aroma, with hints of biscuity malt aroma. The palate is firm, with good pale and biscut malt flavors, paired with hints of estery fruit, and citrus. This beer finishes with a nice piney and lemony hop bite that slightly lingers. Like with the Redhook Long Hammer, maybe not the boldest example, but a very respectable, very well made exaample of AIPA that delivers good hop character. Very drinkable beer, that goes well with the food on the menu at Pyramid, and good beer to enjoy before or after a Mariners or Sea Hawks game. I liked this one.
