This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPAís lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If youíre at the brewery youíll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Light golden orange, slightly clouded, with an off white head. Long lasting spicy citrus hops. Grapefruity hops are strong and nice. Some carmel malt ballances and gives it a nice smooth character. Finishes with a clean hoppiness that settles and leaves a tingiling on the toungue.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Bottle: Poured a medium brown color ale with medium head and medium retention. Aroma is quite hoppy and I can already feel the bitterness. Taste is extremely bitter, probably one of the most bitter IPA that I had the chance to taste but also I can feel very light sweetness in the background which make this beer very interesting. Body is just above average and carbonation is medium. Probably one of the most interesting IPA, which mixes some extreme characteristics as well as some balance.

BeerandBlues2 (10915) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Pours light copper with a small off-white head; some thin lacing. Fragrant floral hop aroma with a citrus nose. Flavor is boldly bitter with a crisp hop finish. Palate is mild and refreshing, very drinkable.

jercraigs (8810) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 2015-08-14. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy sort of green, kiss of onion. Flavour is moderately bitter, orange, light resin and orange peel. 7+ Smooth average to lift bodied palate, soft carbonation. Tasty but a bit thin overall. 7/3/7/3/14 Can at Campground Brewdown.

2004-11-XX. Golden orange body, moderate white head. Big hoppy aroma with lots of resiny hops, not as much as others but nice. Flavour is hop dominated, mostly resiny hops with not a ton of malty but it is fairly well balanced. Lots of hops in the finish, but they donít stick around forever in the aftertaste. Pretty decent palate. Nice beer, touch simplistic at times but very nice. Thanks for sharing your trade from Kimchee Gunny. Cam discovered that the cap smells like lemonade. 7/3/8/3/16 Can shared by Gunny.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Pours a murky yellow color, bubbly white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat, hops. Flavor is very balanced in hops and malt. Sweet yet hoppy taste. Lemons, pine, and cherrys. A very nice IPA, thanks to SHAG for this tasty one.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
Floral hops, lightly spicy with notes of berries in this wonderfully complex aroma. Opaque orange-brown body with lasting small-bubbled, off-white head that covers generously and coats the glass. Dry, flat flavour. Assertively bitter but thereís not much else there. Strong carbonation prickles the tongue. Disappointing - how can the aroma be so fresh yet the flavour so flat? Bottle sampled with Lubiere, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

splink48 (35) - Fayetteville, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Pours a medium gold color. Leaves a nice head which thins out. A very enjoyable IPA which is slightly bitter in a finish. Iíve been extremely impressed with this beer.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
12oz: Hazy golden colour, nice generous white hear, initially huge, but sets down to a foamy cover. Bushy, spine, citrusy smell. Balance is totally great on that aroma, soapy woodiness somehow.. yum yum. Once again though in this IPA tasting, I still am not able to identify so many flavours in this, itís certainly nicely floral and presents a firm sandy/bushy bitterness, but the body is certainly a bit too bubbly, lively biting. So this is obviously in the better half of the American IPAs, but once again, it so dries out on your tongue that it leaves you the impression that youíre missing a lot.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Hazy orange body, thin light cream head. Thick, dense, resiny hops nose. The hops slam the palate the second the beer hits the mouth, with tons of resiny, piney bitterness and peeks of citrus rind. Chewy and thick, this reminds me of a west coast beer, akin to one of Stoneís big beers. Definitely a boon for hopheads, although I consider myself a malt person. Thanks Larry (goldtwins) for the bottle!

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Bottle pours golden, fairly clear, large foamy off-white head, sticky lacing, with light carbonation.   Mild hop aroma.   Hops, slightly sweet, maybe a bit of butterscotch in the flavor.   Decent body, medium mouthfeel.   Mild bitterness on the finish, slightly malty, dry, with some citrus notes.   Nothing unusual or fantastic, but its fairly solid.   Thanks goes out to goldtwins for the trade!
