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.

This is a top of the line IPA and has changed my opinion of some others (most notably Tupper’s). The deep copper color is grand and the hop nose is fantastic. You really know you’re in for a treat before ever tasting it. As other reveiwers have noted, it is well balanced, leaving the perceived bitterness lower than in some other examples. A great all-round beer, but rather pricey in my area.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Not an overwhelmingly hoppy IPA, but loaded with citrus flavor and containing a perfect malt/hop balance. Amber color, benefiting from its strong caramel malt notes, extremely smooth with an above average hop finish.

Great beer, never had it on tap, but holds up in the bottle.

After all the hype over this one I was very eager to try it and did so in Montreal of all places. Nice orange colour. Flavour: hops-biscuit malt-hops. Not has huge as some U.S. IPAs; a very well balanced interpretation.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 My favorite IPA - awesome hop flavor with enough body for a light balance. I HIGHLY reccommend this!

The hops are strong and present, yet not overpowering at all. Very refreshing and well made beer.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 8, 2001
This marvelous beer features big fresh hop aroma and bitterness, but a huge, soothing malt presence balances it all out. A remarkable IPA, and a cult legend among beer geeks.

A nice hoppy beer without being too hoppy.

JoeCifer99 (1) - USA - APR 21, 2001 does not count
They should all be as good. Has agressive hoppy come-on, which gets complex, then finishes dry. I love it.
