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.

Such good hop action. This is definately one of my very favorites. Spicy strong flavor and nose. The malt flavor is nicely present,making the hops nicely complimented.

God I love this stuff. I am a sucker for this wherever I find it, no matter how many times I have tried it.

This is a great beer! Balanced. Lots a hops, whole lotta malt. I try to drink these slowly but they flow down so damn easy!

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Update: I have to take this down a notch after noticing a lot of inconsistency. Old :(11/02) Lovely ruby topped by a generous white head. Tremendous piney hop aroma. Complex sweet fruity malt structure with big hops providing relief. Superbly balanced and a comprehensively drinkable IPA.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Pours a deep amber color and has a very nice hop aroma. This one is perfectly balanced, with the hop bitterness complimenting the malt sweetness perfectly in the front. The finish is long and full of hops. Nice IPA.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2002
Hops dominate the taste, but it has a nice finish as well. Enough maltiness to give it a little backbone. But really, its all about the hops. I wish it were available where I live, I could drink a lot of this.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Re-Rate: Great stuff, from a great brewery. Big & tasty malt flavors meld perfectly with the hops. Very well-balanced and tasty. Not overly hoppy, but nevertheless, very enjoyable. A finely made product! Over time, this beer has become a regular item in my refrigerator. Beware, it is very addictive. The malts grow on you like a fungus, and the hops grow on you like a virus. At first, I only thought this beer was 'pretty good.' Now, I see it as a lifeblood staple. Hook, line, and sinker.

God bless the hops! Who says you canít have an extra bitter beer taste good? This looks like an IPA with a small foamy head that disappears quickly. Almost coppery in color, although it didnít stay in my glass long enough to focus on the color...

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Iíve been waiting a long time for this one... here we go! Head is small, brown and dissipates slowly. Aroma is not as hoppy as I had originally thought it would be but the aroma is overwhelmingly hops. Flavor has a nice balance, probably the best balance Iíve experienced in any IPA.
