GermanBrews76 (680) - 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

Draft in Burlingame, CA. Some hops and decently balanced. I agree with jcalabre, definitely lacks a good finish.

Copper color, high carb level. Lasting head. PNW hops, malty creamy mouthfeel. Perfume on the exhale and veggie style bitterness.

Crit (3534) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2002
Eugene only..San Fran location not up to par Sparkling amber with tan head. Tiny bead. Good citrus hop foretaste with long strong finish. A classic northwest IPA

schm1005 (151) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2002
This IPA smells good but it fails in the flavor department. Astringent taste, makes me cringe a little. I would not order another but it may be one of the best bets from this brewery.

obxdude10 (2111) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2002
A little on the light colored side for an IPA, but I have been noticing this trend with a lot of pale ales from the west coast, I guess from being from the east coast I’m used to seeing pale ales with a darker appearance, a little more on the copper/amber side, anyway, had that west coast characteristic hoppy flavor, nice dry bitter aftertaste, overall a pretty decent IPA
