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.

Loved it! Very hoppy aroma and flavor. Malt sweetness is detectable both via the nose and the palate. A very nice looking beer. A perfect Orange-red color with a very nice head and lacing. Maybe a little light on the malt flavor and body but overall an excellent beer.

Really sticky. Caramelly malts. Sweet hoppyness, with a dry hoppy finish??? piney lychee hops (and, yes, sticky), sharp and unbalanced hoppyness, i can't believe how boring it ended up being, considering the amount of flavour in it. Tasty, yes, but very one dimentional.

PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Overall, a good solid hoppy IPA. Grapefruit-like, citrusy aroma. Copper color appearance with an off-white frothy thick head with a lot of lacing. Hoppy flavor is prominent and not balanced quite as well as some other big west coasts IPAs, still damn good. Stays strong to the finish - taste bud numbing like a good IPA should.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. This brew is a pretty sanguine amber color with a medium and clingy off-white head. Nice lacing throughout. Aroma is heady floral hops. Medium-bodied and crisp with a near-perfect level of hops in the flavor. There is a hint of citrus (lemon/grapefruit) and grass as well. The finish falls off just a little toward the end but overall this is a very good beer.

Clear ruby-amber colour with an off-white head. Remarkable aroma of grapefruit and floral hops with whisps of malt lurking behind. Nice sweet malt opens the flavour, and is quickly overrun by the powerful citric hops. A real tongue-tingler, that's for sure, but it's mighty good.

The Cadillac of IPA's. Less hop/malt balance than some. However, if you like hops, this is the beer for you. This one is hard to beat.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2003
Phenominally hopped nose. Proper IPA style with floral tones. Rusty golden hue with a light orangy head. Wow, what a taste incredably hoppy with hints of serbert and peach. A fantastic IPA. Has a buttery texture and a long dry, bitter finish

RobBestwick (595) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2003
moderate perfumey hop aroma, pours with a copper hue, highly hopped, long dry and bitter hop finish, has an oily palate and reasonable carbonation, good IPA.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2003
The aroma is both spicy and floral and a hint of the taste to come. Which is spicy, peppery, has light grain and then the hops kick in. Oily, spicy and bitter these hops stay on the palate for ages. A hop head delight.

Beautiful color with a strong hop aroma. Very assertive, but remains very drinkable. One of my favorite daily drinkers. I also recommend Tupper's Hop Pocket (Ale of Pils), if you can get it.
