Pours an amber/orange color with a thin, lasting white head. Malts are all but nonexistent in the nose, which does sport some hoppy/grassy notes. Flavor, though, does have some malt in it. There is some kind of fruity/floral sweetness, with a big hit of burnt hops, which is not bad for a Shipyard. I'm definitely not picking up the banana flavor that others are claiming, though. Mouthfeel is standard sub-par microbrew thin and bubbly.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a light orange/amber with a thin white head and good carbonation. Very faint aroma of hops and grass. Not too overpowering. Good hoppy tasty to start that gives way to a smooth hoppy/banana finish with a sharp hoppy bite. Very good hop aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 This beer comes with a red label now, not like the label showed in the picture on this site. A good beer a little on the bitter side. A middle of the pack IPA.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2004
Clear golden in color with a moderate white head. Minor hop notes in the nose - flowery, grassy in nature. No malt in the nose. Nice hoppy flavor and bitter finish with very little malt backbone. Banana flavors through the middle?????? A little thin in body. Not bad, but far from the best IPA.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2004
Mild fuggle aroma mixed with some crystal malt. Light amber color poured with a decent head that lasted for some time. Med hop flavor with some mild malt and bread flavors. An okay beer but a below average IPA.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours a light copper with a thick off-white head. Bubblegum aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Very earthy and malty. Some mild hop notes. Nothing to rave about about. Could get a lot worse.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2004
Bottle. Has a decent hop aroma, citrus. Flavor is a little overwhelmingly bitter and unpleasant, but has a solid malt backing, more on the English side than west-coast IPA's.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Copper with a small off-white head. Mild floral hop aroma and taste. light bodied and somewhat watery with little malt presence. Much milder that a typical IPA, and quite bland.

Pours amber with a small head. You can almost smell hops there. Small hop flavor goes along with small hop aroma. There are better out there.

I had this at the brewery and thought it to be a really good IPA, full of a nice hoppy bite. (the fuggles hop is so nice and sharp tasting). I think it a nice body with average head. Its a middle of the road IPA. Much better at the brewery than at home from a six pack.
