COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden in color with an assertive hop bitterness. This beer won gold medals at The Great American Beer Festival in 1989 and 1990. A true American Classic.

Cloudy orange color with white head. Strangely very little aroma. Taste - Mild grapefruit notes, floral caramel malt and a bit herbal. It’s pretty good but not my favorite flavor profile for an IPA.

Had at the MPLS 2012 Autumn Brew Review. The smell was very inviting so was quick to take a sip. A burst of flavor went thru my taste buds. I chugged it and asked for another sample.

Bottle shared at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Thanks to bnielsen13 for the bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Citrus, hops, bready aroma. Very hoppy/bitter, resiny flavor. Nice IPA.

adnielsen (9464) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. Thanks to bnielsen13 for sharing! Pours a clear dark orange appearance wi a nice, fluffy, off white head. Chewy toasty malty, light caramel, juicy grapefruity, a bit spicy bready aroma. Tangy, spicy, grapefruity, toasty, a bit resiny flavor with a slightly dry, bitter finish. A bit goopy. Maybe a touch dated bottle but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color. Minimal head. Flavor is soft malts, slightly sweet. Finish is clean and hop forward, leaning towards herbal/grass. Light bodied. Decent example of the beer.

Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas, 6.5% ABV
Beautiful copper color, small head. Mild aroma of toffee, light aroma of good hops. Good toffee flavor, balanced hop presence, both fruity (oranges) and resiny; strong bitterness.
Pleasant and solid.
