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.

Orange amber color with a moderate head and good lacing. Fine spicy fruity aroma predominantly citrus, with orange, lemon and grapefruit, and some apple, pear and alcohol notes. Upfront, fullbodied and semisweet with a surprising maltiness considering all the hops, it definitely got my attention. Long bittersweet finish. Heady stuff, although I thought Two Hearted seemed more tangy and lively on the tongue.

Bitter, dry hoppiness needed better balance but otherwise an excellent brew.

Fantastic! * Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 Bottle: Orange hue, awesome citrus malty aroma. Lacing clung to the glass even though the bottle was one month from being out of the freshness window. (gotta love IPA!) Huge sweet malty flavor backed up with huge citrus hop notes without either one being over the top. High IBU's without being overly bitter. BEERS LIKE THIS ARE WHY I DRINK AND BREW BEER! A wonderful beer. Thanks to Austinpowers for hooking me up.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2003 On tap. Light amber color with a white head. I liked the haziness. Aroma is citrus/fruit. Taste is hoppy as a mofo. Dry and bitter. I like it.

(Draught) Pours a medium white head and an amber body. High cascade hop nose and flavour. Bitter finish. Good.

Great beer & great label! Bold-tasting, hopsy (duh), grainy beer. Thin head; cloudy bronze in color. Strong floral aroma. Not overly hopsy; well-balanced. An ass-kicker for sure! (I also recently found out that Hops are related to the cannibas family, not sure of the validity of this statement, but pretty much makes sense!)

One of favorite beers. Dark color when poured with a small amount of head. The initial taste is an assault of hops followed by a mellowing malt after tase. The taste is some what bitter but that is to be expected. A very good IPA.
