Had on tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival - Decent brewpub IPA. Light copper appearance, decent off-white head. Fresh, light, sprucey aroma. Has the expected citrusy hops with a slight malty back end. Mouthfeel decent, not stinging.

Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light orange amber with very nice fluffy bright white head. Delicious sweet citrusy, orange and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Flavor was more of the bitterness than I expected. Fairly sharp and woody hop character with the pale fairly sweet grains a bit pushed down. Late grassy pulpy aftertaste with plain bitterness after that. Still a ince example of the style. Glad I picked this up.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a large frothy white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma and flavour of fresh hops and grapefruit. Very pleasant, dry bitter finish. This is a delicious IPA -- Speakeasy are two for two with me. I look forward to getting this again.

light golden colour with a heavy bubble presence. Strong foamy off white head! A full boquet of aroma hits the nose with hops and a barnyard zest. The flavour is sweet and bitter simulataneously, and the hops deliver as promised and leave oh so smoothly. This is a great Brew!

Tight head floating above very paie IPA. Surprisingly watery texture with a one, two count dead on hop finish. Odd how it balances itself out, but it works. As much as I like it due to the awesome hopping, I could take some more malt, but since there’s Double Daddy .....

Now that smells like an IPA.LIght range colour. Thin head. Flavourful beverage. Not overpowering hops. Moderate malt. Makes you want another bottle.

Malty nose. Nice clear golden color with a nice white head and some lacing. Some citrus and floral bitterness a lot of malt. Not much of an IPA. But good.

Very high on the hops. Pours a nice amber color, medium off white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, with lovely orange hints, and what seems like a bit of eucalyptus (sp?). Flavor is very hoppy, with a dry finish. Very good offering.
