4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Two words: "HOP BOMB!" Man, this brew is hoppy! Pop the cap, and immediately the hop aroma begins it assault on your nasal passages. It pours a very nice amber, with a rather small, white head. I smell some citrus, and perhaps a floral note or two. Taste is hopaliciously bitter - it just punches the back of your throat. The only complaint I have, is that it seems to be only hops - the flavor doesn't have much character beyond that.

Nice pale amber. Thick head with good lace. Aroma redolent of floral, earthy hops. Nice medium body with very crisp hops flavor. Nicely balanced by malt. Hints of butter. Excellent IPA.

Beautiful clear orange witha thick white foamy head. Hoppy, fruity (almost like pineapples) nose. Medium bodied, malty witha nice hop flavor and bitterness. Very good.

Incredible aroma, creamy, frothy head, and a very big hoppy flavor, that was extrememly enjoyable. I will be honest I expected a little more from this IPA, but I have no major complaints. I was more entertained watching the head dissapate and the designs in the lacing too think about too much else. I am a bit of a hophead so this was a really good experience overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rocky, white head. No visible carbonation. Sweet aroma of grapefruit and PNW hops. Hazy, medium golden color. Very bitter, however not a 90 Minute IPA, and I presume certainly not a 120 Min. IPA, I guess I'll have to drink that first. Grapefruit. Light on the tongue. If you like lots of hops, you will like this.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 Poured a nice amber color with a good white head. Lots of hops and a very good flavor. A nice lingering aftertaste. I heard so much about this and I'm not disappointed. The best IPA I've had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Clear amber color with big head and tremendous lacing. Aroma is hops, very floral, tons of dry hopping in this one. Flavor is strong and overpowering of hops with a citrus moutfeel. über-bitter and dry. I love the flavors in this IPA, just can't get enough. delicious.

Great IPA! Medium head. Very pronounced aroma of hop, one of the best aromas ever. Excellent balance of bitter and dry flavors. One of the best colored beers I have ever seen, only the premium Belgium beers do better.
