Very nice beer. Aroma is citrus, with a hop-heavy nose. Has a very pale coloring, almost the same as the vanilla brew. Flavos is standard IPA, but has a bit of spice in it that gives it a nice kick. Itís not exactly an earth-shattering brew, but itís not without its charm.

Draft flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours a yellowish amber with a small head. Aroma of hops. Taste of the same with a bit of pine. This medium bodied brew was the best so far.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
A very average IPA. Pours and ugly clear yellow. Smells like hops. Taste is a little fruity upfront, with a slightly bitter finish, but nothing to remember. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012. 75 IBU, 7% ABV.
Pours a hazy orange copper colour with a strong lacy head. Aroma of strong lemongrass, pale malts and sweet fruits. Flavour is really aggressive with itís grassy bitterness. Itís like eating fresh grass straight from the ground. Caramel, mandarin orange and astrigent notes. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long bitter finish where the alcohol comes through. Great stuff.
