Clear coppery color with a white head, nice lace. Very faint cascade hops aroma. Sweet malt and very heavy cascade hops flavor. Crisp bubbly feel, with a dry finish.

I agree with (redave). This is one of the better IPAís I have tried . I have been searching for some time now for the perfect IPA and this one is the best so far. Not overly bitter and a very creamy head and just the right amount of flowery Cascades.

tap. dark golden, slight copper, tiny bubble head. nice lacing. hops, grapefruit and spices aroma. hops, fruit is too tart, dry finish. Grapefruit overpowers hops. It wasnt an appealling grapefruit flavor. very disappointing.

This is the what an IPA should be! Almost perfect! Nice Golden straw color. Nice grassy h!oppy aroma [depending on itís freshness i suppose] Well balanced full mouthfeel. Kevin is one of the Great brewers!

On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Golden clear colour with a little hoppy nose of citrus. Flavour of hops and fruit that ends up bitter, nearly too bitter and dry for an ordinary IPA.

Vlear gold color. I'm quickly becoming bored with this brewery's beers. Aroma is faint (again) with citric hops. The flavor was hugely hoppy...very bitter and burnt. Very dry finish.
