Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of cascade hops, caramel malt and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy and semi sweet. Another west coast hop monster but I do have to say that this one is relatively balanced though.

<i>Bottle (35 cl) at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden</i>. Cloudy amber/orange, low white head. Piney and apricot hop aroma, no malt character. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced, long bitter finish. Overrated.

A good ale. Well balanced and full of flavor. A good/above averaged IPA. Cheers.

I thought this was a very good IPA but definitely not worth the extra$ IMO. I would rather have a Flying Dod Snake Dog and use the extra cash for a cigar

12oz. Golden-ish pour with creamy head, standard. Hoppy bitter citrus, loads of caramel malts. Sweet spot of IPAs, excellent west coast example. Crisp.

12 oz bottle. Hazy orange body with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is fruity peaches and grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet malty with notes of caramel and a nice balanced bitterness. It actually does not feel as bitter as 70 IBU, but there is a clean pronounced bitterness. Lovely.

Bottle. This would pass for an imperial IPA in most cases. Stronger in taste than most of that classification. Strong, fruity-hoppy aroma. Tastes rather fruity but extreme bitterness on the back end. Light color. It reminded me of the West Coast IPA, which I think is nearby.

Bottle from Cavie. "Why hello, dry hop. You seem to have overrun my aroma." A little lemon aroma as well. Taste is hoppy, but not as much as the aroma. Very citrusy. Lots of side tingle on the tongue.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 4th June 2008. Easy drinking IPA. Nice fruity hops with a medium level of bitterness. Lighter palate than a lot of IPAs. 3.4
13th April 2013
A much fresher bottle. Hazy amber beer. tidy white head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Thin creamy malt with mild caramel. Good piney hops, rich and bitter. Lesser citrus and whisper of skunk. Dry minerally finish with some fresh hop sting. Tasty IPA but a bit dry.

Pours a crystal clear straw yellow scarily like macro swill. Smallish snow white head clings and leaves massive lacing. Honestly, looks like Miller Lite. Even my wife said "I thought you don’t drink that cheap stuff." Nose dominate by citrus and malt. Classic one dimensional IPA aroma. Crisp flavor of grapefruit. Strong bitterness at the finish. Lively mouth feel. High carbonation level is just right for the style. A pretty decent IPA. Ugly as hell, but still very tasty.
