COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

Amber Coloring. Small Head. I was Scared of What the Hops Attack Might Be....But Very Nice.. Nice and Bitter. I Don’t Normally Love IPA’s, but This One Is Definitly Worth Appreciating.

Pours a dark amber color with a thin, tan head. Very spicy and hoppy aroma. Bitter taste loaded down with hops, but an excellent balance of malt. A bit of a pine taste I would not expect, but do not dislike. Tasty!

Very good IPA. One of the best I’ve had. Good hoppy, fruity aroma. Orange/amber appearance with a thin off-white head. Flavor was kinda sweet. Perfect amount of hops, bitterness. Slight piney, sweet aftertaste. Great IPA, but I still think Stone IPA is a little better.

Bottle. Poured a crystal clear amber red colour with an initialy huge tan head. Aroma is sweet, very hoppy with some malt. Taste is sweet, spicey and malty, well balanced by the bitter hoppiness. Smooth, full bodied, crisp and slightly dry with nice bitter finish. The best American IPA I’ve tried, excellent.

Deep golden color, with sweet hoppy/ piney nose showing carmel and malt. Rich flavor, very piney, with sweet hop finish.The bitterness coats the mouth. Nice beer though a bit out of balance.

Orange/amber color with a nice white head. Hop, citrus aroma doesn’t prepare you for the taste. Great bitter hop flavor with a light citrusy aftertaste. Perfect for a hot summer day.

I am not a big IPA fan, but this one was very good. Amber color, cloudy. Mild hop aroma. A complex but well-hopped flavor. Not overwhelmingly hopped-up as many IPAs seem to be. Definitely worth a second try.

Cloudy orange liquid, white head. I have a feeling this bottle may be rather old, at least a year, the hop aroma is rather subdued revealing a lot of the malt. Malt has some earthy character, but not particularly sweet. Finish is alcohol warm and cascade bitter, with a touch of the earthy malts.Mouth feel is rather light, watery body, lacking the body of Stone IPA IMO. Would like to try a fresher bottle, an internet order is in order.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2004 Nice red-amber color with a tight head and heavy lacing. Smells is hoppy, but not as intense as I expected. Still smells great, but definite malt presence in the nose. On taste, definite variet of hop flavors from spice, to piney to citrusy. Very nice texture that is rounded out by a fantastic malt backbone. Sweet with the right dryness in the finish that has you begging for more. Definitely a thirst quencher, definitely a very good IPA, though I’d probably almost lean towards APA, if there is truly a difference...
