COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our cult favorite, deep gold American pale ale. Big citrus and floral aromas, malt flavors, and intense hoppy finish.

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 (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

haddon90 (1612) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - AUG 12, 2003
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.

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.
