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.

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 (4903) - 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 (11274) - 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. Havenít 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 itís suppossed to be that way, but too much for my way. Hop at it!

Pour amber with a medium size head. Scent is floral and high hops. Taste is the same and very smooth and crisp. Well done.

shadey (2076) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 Iím probably being a little rough on a beer that is known for hops. I have yet to aquire a taste for this level of hoppiness. The smell and the intense flavor just didnít sit well with me, but if you like hops, this is your deal. 7/3/6/3/14

RERATE: Cloudy orange pour with a nice head of cream. Some lacing. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops. Flavor is bright and vibrant hops but it is a little too rough for me. A tough smoother would be nice. Maybe some age would help.

Nice white head. Lasted a while. Hop aroma and hop aroma, am I forgetting something? Big hit of bitterness that lasts and lasts. Some malty goodness, but the hops rule in this. Dark amber color.
