On Tap at Kahootz: This was awesome! It poured a dark copper color and modeled a strong hoppy presence. It made my friend Sharad cringe, but thatís because he likes Heineken!

I liked this one a lot. Pours amber with a medium head. Just the right amount of hops, makes the tongue cringe a bit but the eyes donít water.

Draught @ PH Portland. This beer could make a hophead out of anyone. Approachable light amber, thin head. This beer really shows how good fresh north western hops can be. They are backed beautifully with light earthy malt notes. Very Clean and refreshing beer.

Plesant citrus aroma with a mild hop profile. Nice pouring beer. Cloudy amber with a frothy white head. More citrus in the taste. Huge hops for the style. Much thicker than an English style ESB. Nice stuff.

12 oz bottle - Poured cloudy amber with a short white head. Aroma of grapefruit and some grass and some spice. Flavor is mostly hops.. a little grain. On the palate this is medium bodied crisp and clean and finishes with a bitter almost sour aftertaste. This was a good ESB.

Draft - Amber colored with a great lasting head. This was very crisp with a nice hop bite at the end. Not usually a fan of this style, but this was great.

Nice rich honey color with little head. If your an IPA fan. go buy this beer. Itís like a hops smoothie. Texture of apple cider, hints of citrus, bitter in the best sort of way. Best $12 six-pack Iíve ever bought. I just ran to toss another in freezer to get it cold

appears hazy amber, with a nice head, smells great very spicey, the taste almost like lemon iced tea, good hops, somewhat bitter, very drinkable, and truely brutal.

I liked it, but it was a little spicy for my taste. A bit too many hops in this one.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Wow, this is a really interesting brew. The first bitter Iíve ever had that actually dries your tongue out, but without leaving an aftertaste, very good.
