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.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Well hoped but not overdone. Blends well with the other subtle flavours. Can't take the place of Two Hearted for me though.

Cask GBBF. Head disappears fast. Weird aroma: blackcurrant and peach, I can't exactly get my hands (or nose) on it. Loads of flavor. Malty, full bodied, almost thick, in fact. Loads of hops, licorice. Long fruity hopbitter finish. In fact a bit too much of everything.

thedm (4997) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 8, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine to large sized off-white mostly lasting bubbles that left an excellent lacing and a hazy uncarbonated light brown colored body behind. It had a strong hop aroma along with a medium hop flavor woth some malt and spice notes.

Pours a beautiful red color. Wonderful I.P.A. Another winner from Victory.

Solid IPA. Tons of hops in the aroma and flavor. Nice lacing. Medium bodied with a crisp and bitter finish. Would definitely drink again.

Very nicely hopped. Not as complex as I would like, but priced perfectly for my everyday IPA.

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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2003
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 (5830) - 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 (8907) - 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.
