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.

nice dark amber colo. low hop aroma compared to other ipa’s. maltier than i had expected for the style. i only got a slight bit of hoppy bitterness in the end of the flavor.

hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Orange/amber ale with a frothy, khaki-colored head. Mostly lasting. The nose is very, very floral. The rich malt gently asks for the tongue’s attention, then the hops bite and bite and bite. Perfectly-bittered brew with a great malt profile to boot. HopHeads rejoice... beer lovers rejoice! World class IPA!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Re-Rate 07/01/02: Pours a beautiful clear dark amber, the head is generous, creamy and long lasting, as is the lace. Nose is floral, citus, hint of caramel, sweet and very applealing. Front is lightly sweet, the top is light, the finish ’All hops’, somewhat dry, mildly acidic, ’OOOOOOHHHHHH DEM HOPS’. A great beer for us ’Hop Heads’.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2002
A great, one of my favorite IPAs, great spicey hop character, sweet malt flavor comes through slightly, but this beer is all about the hops, for hoppheads, not to be sample by the weak palate, great use of hops in this ale, I just love this beer!

Balanced, wonderful, an aroma to fall into like the television static dropoff toward sleep, complete with body jerk. Malty backbone, piney, resinous hop flavoring, but very well done. Top-flight. Thanks austinpowers!

This just might be my favorite IPA. Nicely bitter. Incredibly full bodied. I’d love to give this beer extra credit for it’s great palate. Strong biscuity malt aroma and flavor. A great balance of hops and malt. If I was stranded on a desert island with unlimited cases of just one beer, this might be it.

A hophead’s delight, a welcoming pungent hop aroma, a clean, amber tone, with a firm, durable head, there is no denying the dominance of the hop flavor from start to finish. A glorious example of an American style IPA. Along with some of Dave Wollner’s IPA’s at Willimantic Brewing in CT, the best IPA I’ve tasted. Just as excellent on cask.

cathcacr (630) - Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 An excellent IPA; it’s beers like this that make me so partial to this style. I’ve heard all these good things about Victory and had this recommended by a local beer seller. Its serious competition (among those I’ve tried) is the Stone IPA and after a few tries I’ve decided I like this better. [Well, as of 6/16/02, anyway.] Mild aroma hides robust, hoppy flavor (which you would expect in a good IPA) and goes down crisp yet smooth. I’d definitely have it again.

Appealing citrusy and complex hop aroma, with a bit of malt sweetness. Clear medium amber color. Appropriate carbonation and head for this style, decently effervescent. Flavor profile has some nice Pale malt sweetness to provide balance to the hop flavors, which are quite nice. Finish is hoppy, too, but not particularly dry, due to the malt sticking around until the bitter end, as well. Love the label art, too, heh. Great mouthfeel and flavor, and just a great American IPA all around. Zesty!
