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.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Bottled. A sour fruit aroma to this hazy amber coloured beer. The beer is hoppy, sour, chewy and tasty. A nice beer but I’ve had better IPAs.

This is flat out the kinda stuff that’ll turn you into a hophead. Luscious....delicious...scrumptious. The color is spot on for the style, a nice coppery-orange. The white pillowy head was perfect. The hoppy scent was accented nicely by a fruity, citrusy ovetone. The bitter piney/hop flavor had me wanting more and more. Very satisfying. No doubt, this baby is right there with the gems by Stone and Alesmith. I’ll buy this again...and again..and again.

Hop juice to the max. On tap. A dark golden amber with a nice 1’’ head. A hoppy aroma follows through in the flavor, along with hints of fruit and black currant, just enough to balance out the bitterness nicely. Definately worth a try.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Mondial de la Biere 2004. Deep orange amber colour with a thin diminishing off-white head. Caramel malt, toffee, and fruity aroma. Dark bread, toasty malts, with a lingering fruity bitter finish. Medium to full bodied, and a touch sticky.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Orange-amber. Good long lasting pillowy head with some lacing. Delicious full bodied hop aroma, more than just grapefruit, includes cedar scent as well. Full bodied. Alcohol notes in body and finish. Hops are nicely balanced, not overwhelming. Some oilyness in the body.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Orange hop aroma dissipates leaving lightly chocolatey nose. Dark amber with off-white head that recedes to cover. Orange/pine hop flavour and strong bitterness dominate with very little malt base. Body is medium. Rather one dimensional. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).

The hoppiness is very smooth. It starts bitter and smooths right out revealing a depth of flavor. I never get sick of this ale. Available at local bevy stores.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2004
On tap. Amber in color. Nice hoppy (citris and floral). Very nice hoppy taste and bitter finish. For me, this beer was very easy to drink.

spadaborinn (3) - Hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 25, 2004 does not count
Good smell and look but sadly there is to much hops for my taste. Haven’t quite gotten a hang on the ipa beers, probably an aquired taste I assume.

Good following and good ratings. I have to be true to thy self. Concur with the over the top hoppiness and floral chracter of this mix. Yes it’s suppossed to be that way, but too much for my way. Hop at it!
