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.

Appearance is reddish orange. Aroma is citrus and melons. Flavor is hoppy with some pine and tangerine flavor. Thanks to scoobyluv for providing me with this fine IPA. A good selection for #400.

Bottle. Copper color with a large, creamy head that lasts well. Aroma of delicious caramel malts and assertive hops - grapefruit and pine. Nicely balanced, sweet malty backbone, big hop flavor and spicy finish. Medium body with perky carbonation.

Kodos (205) - USA - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 Nice ruby color. Aroma is Hops, slight malt, slightly fruity. Starts out quite bitter with a peppery? undertone. Smoothes out to a nice dry hoppy finish. really pleasant brew especially if you Love Em Hoppy!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2006 Rich golden-red color with a filmy, grayish off-white head. Somewhat fleeting spicy hop nose with herbal and earthy qualities. Aroma also has a warm, toasted, biscuity malt underbelly. Flavor is considerably malty for an IPA with characters of tea and cake. Finishes with somewhat rough and woody, medium-high bitterness. I’ve had this beer numerous times and in multiple incarnations—fresh bottles, aged bottles, draught, and on cask. One of my standby go-to beers due in equal parts to prevalence and quality. This is the flag-bearer among East-Coast IPAs.

Dark copper with a white head. Nose is floral hops, taste is floral and citrus hops on a strong malt background. I'm not a hophead (yet) but beers like this might change my mind.

Very interesting beer... Pours a deep copper color with nice head and good lacing. Interestingly, it's not really hoppy tasting at first but there's a serious kick in the back - plenty of hops there but they sneak up on you. Strong citrus flavor as well. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a crisp finish. Drinkability is quite good, I wish it wasn't so hard to find these around here.

A hop head delight! Much more bitter than most IPA's I have tried. A unique taste but not for the faint of hops heart

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2003 This is a deep amber colored beer with a few more spice notes than most IPA's that I enjoy. More body than most as well with that wonderful hoppy bite that all good ones have. It finishes well, but does not have an incredibly long finish. Good bitterness with a surprising sweetness on the back of your tongue... I can't place the flavor... maybe 5 or 6 more will help me pinpoint it. A good solid beer from what has proven to me so far to be a solid brewery.

My experience with IPAs is fairly broad, but the hops used in this beer seemed particularly unique - spicy, as the deScription says. Very tasty, I must send credit where credit is due, and the hop selection here is simply fantastic. Very tasty and the bitterness (although definitely prominent while cold) does nothing to detract from the flavor. Great balance here, almost like a grassy vanilla bean with a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel. Great IPA.
