UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Holy hops. Perhaps my favorite IPA, at least to drink on a regular basis. Great in bottles and on tap. RERATE: I didn't lower the rating too much, and this still remains one of my favorites all around, it just isn't quite as good as I once thought. The hop syrup feel is oh so smooth, given that it tastes like pinecones. Relatively full bodied. Bitter aftertaste, somewhat sticky, finish is more on the malt side. I think I figured that since I rated this early on in my ratebeer days that it wasn't as hoppy as I thought, but upon returning to this wonder, but nope, it really has got tons of hops. Lovely beer.

Versa di un bel colore ambrato,con sottile schiuma di scarsa durata. Aroma fresco di luppolo con sentori caramellati. In bocca risulta discretamente corposa, con note di malto e caramello ben bilanciata dalla buona luppolatura così come è bilanciato il lungo finale. Più che soddisfacente.
