OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a hazy golden amber with a rocky 2 finger white head that retains well. Nice blots of lacing. S - Smells like an herbal evergreen forest with lots of floral ground cover. Some caramel malt and hints of astringent lemon as well as some dirty dish rag smell....maybe the yeast. T - A train of herbal and evergreen hops creates a dry bitterness that scrapes your palate dry of everything. The caramel malt is mixed in but slowly shows up in the middle and progresses through to the aftertaste. Some doughy bread like characters try to come out. Finishes first like chewing on dry bitter herbs then switches to some bready flavors. M - Light to medium. This beer actually holds a special place in my heart. it was my first IPA back in I think 2001. I didn’t care as much about beer as much back then but remember almost pouring it out. I had never thought of pouring any beer out before. I never forgot that name or that beer. So I was excited to try it again after all these years and having more knowledge about IPA’s.... It seemed to be as gross as the first time. There’s a non-diluted medicine character about it that I just can’t enjoy. Serving type: bottle 01-25-2011

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle @brew night with jeevan & allmyvinyl. Pours golden, light white head. Almost no nose at all, same with the taste there is some citrus and floral notes but nothing big, nothing you can get hold of. A huge pile of meh, nothing to make you go back to it, nothing to make you run away.

StevieT (380) - AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2014
From a bottle. Huge flavour of hops assaults you first, then the bitterness of the citrus which lingers on the back of the palate.
