Bottle and tap from the Flying Saucer. Very bitter aftertaste. Draught is not much better than the bottle.

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.

JDBaker11058 (1223) - Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Appearance: marmalade orange, with no head to speak of. Aroma: musty hops; not a very strong aroma. Taste: bitter hops up front, some malty toasted caramel underneath. Finish: lingering and bitter. Notes: lousy.

12oz bottle, down the hatch on 7/25/07. Decent looking enough, head sticks around to see the ending. Aroma is brash C hop, with some old malts floating around. Flavor has a little bit of oxidation with harsh bitterness, very little hop flavor left. Finish is more stale wet cardboard. Perhaps not the freshest example?

Wow. A VERY hoppy beer. I must let it be known that I have no taste for IPAís, so my rating may be tainted, but still. One of those beers that makes you involuntarily kick your leg just to get it down. The only reason I rated it a 2 is due to the existence of Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA.

Stay away from this unless you enjoy drinking skunky, stale beer. I have gotten bad batches of this at least four times, they have some serious quality control issues and it is not worth wasting your money.

Aroma is lacking typical IPA hops forward has a rotten peach instead and a slight burn of alcohol on the nose hairs Apperance: a light red/orange color Taste: not enough of the flavor of the hops in this I get the bitter on the tongue but nothing in the taste and the end is almost metallic I hate that Palate: drinkable on the throat no overpowering bubbles but it leaves a coating on my tongue and teeth again I donít like that overall I would not recommend this beer to an IPA drinker, possibly to a light ale newbie

Dark straw colored. Smells skunky... tastes skunky. No wonder it was on sale. Bad sample. I will re-rate this when I find a good bottle.
