Pour is a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is super! Nice deep hop aroma, more of a double IPA. Flavor is not as outstanding as the aroma but you get your piney hops and a nice crisp bite to this brew. An above par IPA.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 19, 2005
curious to see the abv, isnt stated anywhere i could find on the bottle: golden hazy pour with a nice white head....huge nose of grassy cascade hops. mouth not nearly as dominant as the nose, somewhat weaker then i thought it would be from the nose. a bitter grapefruit taste and fruity pine hops clearing the way. a good ipa. crisp and refreshing to drink...but not in the upper stone or bear republic levels of ipa’s but who is???

Lubiere (10840) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
Hazy golden IPA with a thick beaten egg white head, like the scum on top of the fermentor. Yummy floral hops and citrus in aroma. Good malt base, lightly sweet mingling perfectly with the grapefruits and bitterness, pine finish. Lighter but decent bodied IPA, very pleasant. Bought in June 2004, in San Francisco. Tasted on Jan. 6, 2005.

heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Very light gold color with a large white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops and some bread backing it up. The tast eis bready and balanced with some grapefruit. A little bit of spice in the finish. A thin and light mouthfeel. Normally I woudl dock an IPA for that, but it is well done in this one. This is a solid and well made brew.

Braudog (5972) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Hazy peach color with massive bubble bath-like head. Lemon-zesty aroma. Flavor is flat ... musty and dirty, but without any real body.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle. Golden orange, slight haze, explosive and rocky head. Citrus and floral aroma. Lively carbonation, lighter than typical body, balanced and spicy hops, hints of peaches. A modest yet refreshing IPA.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Looks worse than it taste, though the taste was waterdown. Easy to drink, easy to forgert, with general hoopy characteristics. The bottle, though, has eyeballs on the top that follow you where ever you go.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours a cloudy, pale butterscotch color with a rocky whit head. This beer is all hops. Definately needs a litttle more of a malt backbone here. A great ipa for all major hopsters out there.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2004
This poured out a hazy golden yellow with about a half-inch of white rocky foam atop the body. The head quickly falls to a cap of bubbles and leave sparse lacing around the glass. The aroma is very hoppy with citric hops being the main ingredient and floral and earthy hops coming up as well. No traces of malt were detected in the aroma at all. A strong citric hop flavor hits you tongue as soon as you start to sip this and the hoppy bitterness doesn’t stop even after you swallow. Floral hops also come out quite strong making for an all around hop assault. The after taste is a lingering bitter one that is quite puckering. The body is medium and has a creamy mouthfeel. Drinkability is good for those how like a very hoppy IPA as I do. This is a good IPA that I would recommend to anyone of the hophead persuasion.
