This beer rocks. The commercial description is accurate. However, I would like to add that this beer is pretty complex. Very interesting. Very well hopped with a very enjoyable and interesting undertone that I could not identify. Maybe one of the special malts. Jim does it again. A very very good IPA.

Orange colour. Quite weak aroma, but a nice hoppy flavour with a too short bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: This is my 2 IPA, and I kind of like them. The colour of the beer is like the sun on a summer evening half an hour before it sets. Light orange. The aroma is slightly hoppy but a little weak. The same goes for the flavour. A little hoppy, but too weak. I would have preffered if the aftertaste had lasted a little long. All in all a good beer, that i definately will give another try.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 Has a nice amber color with a fruity/hop smell. Taste is of hops/fruit and finishes with a crisp bitterness. Overall pretty average for an IPA, to me. I like it so I will drink more.

A good ’starter ipa’. Light orange color. Lightly hopped (for an IPA), but very well balanced - left a long sweetness that urged me to pour another. Had a hard time finding this.

Good clean hop bitterness and citrus fruit acidity…A very good introduction to I.P.A.’s…

The most orange beer I’ve seen. Lots of hops, well in balance with the sugar. A bitter and enjoyable drink.

Nice color not as hoppy as I would like.

Not bitter enough for my taste. Decent hop aroma/flavor,malty,medium body,finish is lacking.Good effort,but way to mainstream...wait this is SA’s..nevermind :)

Copper-coloured, OK head. Full-bodied. Thick, oily hop-flavour. Very bitter. I like hoppy, bitter beers.
