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.

Easily my favorite IPA, I wish I could get it in Austin, TX. Nice aroma, spiciness, maybe a hint of dull woodiness that I found downright classy. Hoppy taste but not overpowering. Nice mouthfeel and one of those lasting finishes that makes you wish you had another. Excellent!!

Not for the malt lover, this beer is uniquely hopped and has a satisfactory body. The aroma is second to none in strength. Suprisingly, the high alcohol content is not over-bearing.

YUM! The aroma is wonderfully sweet. The color is a lovely amber. The flavor is a hoppy kick in the pants, exactly what a hop devil should be! The malt is there, but subtle. The biting hops are nicely balanced. Smooth and wonderfully bitter. A wonderful beer.

Very nice IPA. Start off with a nice amber body that has a minimal head. Next, add in lovely grapefruit aroma. The flavor is solid citrusy hops, though it’s a bit unbalanced. Nice aftertaste. Goes great with chili.

I am a big IPA fan and rate this second only to Stone so far, with Bells two-hearted and Dogfish 90 minute right there as well. This beer is very well balanced, nice aroma and taste. Just a little too much grapefruit flavor which makes it slightly bitter.

A good beer. Just not quite an IPA. Need to up the malt to be in the higher echelon of IPAs.

obxdude10 (2027) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2002
Re-rate: Very hoppy flavor, complex body, very spicy aftertaste, nice hoppy floral aroma, kept a very nice head, great hoppy punch to it, excellent IPA

TChrome (1415) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2002
This beer is very much about hops. It does have a malt element to it, but the malt, definitely pays second fiddle to the hops. Nicely layered, fairly complex brew. Looks absolutely gorgeous in the glass. Quite good.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2002
Precisely because of the substantial malt presence this thing doesn’t come firing at all barrels with the hops like other, usually less well made, IPAs. Don’t get me wrong, the hops are there, fierce Cascades from the other end of the continent, but the devil must dance with the yeast and the biscuity malt while he gets his due. I like this balancing act just fine.

I keep this one on tap at home. I even decant it and drink it from a red wine glass.
