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.

terrible. At first scent, I was expecing hop aroma, not typical macro adjunct like sweetness. Taste was not much better. Kind of messy presentation with subdued hops, and a thin mouthfeel.

Woody and yeasty aroma or grapefruit. Cloudy amber color, thin head, good lacing. Bitter orange flavor with a lemon peel finish. I really didnít enjoy this much at all. Itís bitter without a complimenting flavor and yeasty.

Hmmmm....Was expecting quite a bit more from this one. It looks ok but amells just like a macro. I had to check the bottle to make sure it wasnít. Just as disappointing taste wise. It tasted like a Budweiser to me. Maybe its the Centennial hops, I donít know, but I bought 2 bottles and the other one is going in the trash. I didnít like this one.

Light copper with a white head. Aroma is fucky, rustic and tobacco like. There are all sorts of weird yeasty things and green fruits going on too. Medium body, flavour is all over the place, like the aroma.. lots of green fruit and a weird finish. So weird.

Never had a skunky IPA before, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. Nice dish soap flavor in the finish makes this IPA one to stay away from.

On tap at the Pyramid in the Oakland airport. I hate to give this such a low rating, because it wasnít really that bad, but for an IPA this was so far off the mark I have to. The pour was decent with a golden body and a nice off white head. The aroma didnít have much hops, just some mild pine and mostly cooked vegetables. The flavor was the same. The finish had a bit more hop bitterness, but the weak body and unpleasant cooked veggies kill it. Way below average for the style.

Pours amber with white head. Has a not so great floral aroma. Bland sour hop flavor. No sir, I do not like this IPA.

Pyramid uses a tired old recipe for their Thunderhead IPA. Hoppy, bitter, boring.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2004 I have been waiting to try this one for awhile and was planning on giving it a high score, but sadly it just isnít good. The aroma is ok with some hops and citrus, and it looks good with cloudy orange coloring. But the flavor is of very strong and very bitter hops, so strong that is ruins the taste. I hope I just got a bad bottle.

Wareham (3) - Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2010 does not count
Aroma: Noticeable absence of anything resembling a hop aroma. More dirt and straw odors than anything. Lots of swirling needed to get a hop nose. Appearance: Even medium-gold color. Taste: Metallic front leads to medium hop and then finish is extremely bitter and lingers very long and harshly. Palate: Medium astringency from hops. Good medium-bodied mouthfeel. Overall: Pass, itís not worth the sale price.
