Tap@Steelhead. Loved this stuff, Once again really well, made, textbook IPA. Massive sweet lychee flavour. Pine and grapefruit, as is alwasy the case with USIPA’s. Little creatures pale ale kept coming to mind while having this, real tasty stuff.

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy with a citrus edge. Taste was sweet at first then the hops brought on a bitter end with hints of orange peel.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2004
On tap at Irvine, CA location. Cloudy gold with a full white big head and lacing throughout. Fresh hop floral aroma with a hint of maltiness. The flavor isn't as good as the aroma, which left me a little dissapointed. Light bitter hop finish also isn't as dry as I prefer, but still an above average IPA.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
tight white frothy head, golden straw body;crystal clear. cool sheety lace. dry, pale, spicy and resinous. citrus tones and floral quality. some breadiness or biscuts. Very dry, well hopped. crackery malt profile. pretty standard fare, but well balanced for a west coast IPA

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Draft in Burlingame, CA. Some hops and decently balanced. I agree with jcalabre, definitely lacks a good finish.
