Interesting smell - a bit of a lemon flavor. Taste has a simular lemon flavor. This is an IPA with some taste to it.

Very very nice IPA. Pours a beautiful golden color, nice but short-lived head. Exceptionally aggressive bouquet. I swear this smells like marijuana. Strong but not sharp hop flavor hits the tongue, and mellows to a nice glowing dry finish, leaving your mouth feeling like you won't need to brush your teeth for a month. One of the better IPA's, true to the style and drinkable at the same time.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Golden-amber body, beautiful lasting head. Green hoppy (cascade) nose. One-dimensionally bitter and hop-flavored, a little bit of toffeeish malt to balance.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 Decent initial head that is very creamy and off-white. Body is brilliant gold/amber and some good-sized particles. Lacing is pretty good. Nose is mostly hoppy... pine and grapefruit. A toffee-like malt is there also, but very slightly. Flavor is a dull hops taste. Pretty big, but not incredibly flavorful. Is mostly a piney/resin thing with a citrus complement. Malt is sort of there also... a bit of toffee and chocolate. Overall good, but I fear the bottle doesn't do this justice. I've had much better experiences on tap.

Deep copper in colour with a small white head. Aroma is very bitter with hops, grapefruit, pine, and a touch of sugar. Flavour had some intense hoppiness up front, lots of citrus and some caramel. Finishes with a long smooth bitterness. Thanks redlem for sending me this fine beer.

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Nice deep copper color. Lots of carbonation with a big, frothy off-white head. Aroma is a full, earthy hop nose. Maybe a splash of Cascade in there too. Taste is definitely hoppy. A slight malt flavor at first is quickly outpaced by the citrusy, fruity hops. Definitely some Cascade in here, but not exclusively so. Finish is dry and bitter. A nicely done American style IPA.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Golden amber color, medium bodied. Has a bitter pine-resin hop presence from start to finish. Some grapefruit notes towards the finish.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Nice copper color with good long alive head. Huge hoppy nose to it. Flavor of grapefruit nails you from the start. Lack of malt, over the top hops and a finish that is forever bitter.

Golden hue with fluffy long lasting head and good lace. Pine, wood sap, grapefruit, and toasted malt aroma. The flavor started smooth but quickly a cascade of big hop characteristics attacked the palate. Major tone of both bitter grapefruit and twangy lemon. Very slight metallic feel and lively. The balance on this beer was pretty good for something with such an appearent big hop level. Enjoyable for sure. I liked the twist of lemony undertone I found on the tongue. Also, pour this slowly if you see an lingering yeasties on the bottom as was the case with my bottle.
