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.

Bottle. An amber color with minimal head. A hoppy floral fruity aroma. I love IPAs with character and body.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 Bottled version, one year on, lacks a little balance in bottle and becomes metallic in the finish. Cask conditioned, GBBF London. Amber gold moderate head and condition. Massive dry hopped nose, fruity malt and good smooth bitterness in the mouth and a great hoppy finish.

In my opinion, this beer approaches near perfection! The hoppiness is strong yet smooth. The color is a gorgeous copper. This beer is awesome with Indian food.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 Bright copper color, nice thick head, clings to the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine resin. This IPA is very balanced malty with a great hop bite, I like to keep a supply of this awesome brew.

This beer stands high atop the hoppy IPA crowd. Smoother, creamier than most other hoppy offerings, but still packs a big hop punch for hopheads. Outstanding when drawn off a cask.

Very good IPA, probably the best I have ever had. Amber colored, with a thick, non-retentious head. Cascade-like aroma and taste with a spicy finish....somewhat complex for an IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2006 2002 bottle Oh wow did this smell good. A rich brownish-golden color, with no head. Wonderfull fresh aroma with a hint of. . .cucumber/spices?? The taste was amazing. I expected alot and it delivered. The most floral ale i have tasted, but still maintained a great hop presence. Had a medium body that finished smooth and fresh with a nice warm hop flavor left on the palate. I couldnt believe this was 6.7 alcohol after i drank it. i still canít. What a wonderful beer, by a wonderful brewer. CASK 2003! Wow, had this on cask. Speechless. Such warm tones and wonderfully fresh cascade hops. Even with a round bitterness at the end that lingers and grows stronger. Great amount of body.
2004 bottleBlind tasting. Very relaxed, herbally and lightly malted. Mineral water flavor, with some sharp grassy/spicy tones on the finish. Very distinctive, but I donít think the bottled version will ever live up to the cask version I had.
