COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust India Pale Ale follows British tradition by using bountiful amounts of fresh hop cones to produce a crisp clean character; blending Magnum, Crystal and Hallertauer hops with generous amounts of Munich and Carmel malt.

Cool organic concept, though the beer was pretty mediocre. It had a pretty bland hoppy taste, not very crisp, needs more excitement for an IPA. Not that it tasted bad or anything. the beer was fresh and had a good body, maybe they should relabel this, Wolaverís Amber Ale.

Iím a major hop-head and love IPAs. This beer wasnít what I was expecting. For an IPA, itís not as hoppy as some and the malt flavor comes thru a little more. Maybe Iím just used to NW IPAs. But this beer is exceptional. A nice yellow-copper color. The hops donít come through too bold, but you notice them. A nice balance between bitter and malt, nice subtle hop aroma and bold, but not strong, hop flavor. Overall a well balanced IPA that follows more the British IPA than an American.

Decent, but give me more hops guys. Sierra Nevada is hoppier than this beer....of course, SN is hoppier than hell, but this is supposed to be an IPA. Decent brew, but not at all indicative of the style.

Amber color, average head. Way too malty for an IPA. The hops definitely need to be more crisp and prominent.

Bolt (117) - Boulder Creek, California, USA - JUN 7, 2002
Pours nice, has a nice amber color, nice frothy head, has a nice hoppy floral nose, nice carbonation with bubble trails, clean medium/light body, nice flavor, not to heavy, and not outrageously hopped, actually lightly hopped for an IPA. Nice flavorful balanced ale that doesnít sit heavy in the gut.

A little better than even Sam Smithís or Fullerís, a pale copper color, very hoppy, nice spicy aftertaste, very crisp, very clean, nice IPA

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 Bottle: Light cloudy orange color with a large foamy head, that quickly gets thin. Bready citrus aroma, almost biscuity. Full creamy mouthfeel, rich crisp ending. Although very mild in bitterness compared to some American IPAs, this beer really captures and mixes the British and American styles.

Clear light peach with a thin foamy white head. Light carbonation. Sour fruit aroma with some light wet cardboard and citric hops. Ugh! Fruit juice mixed with sour Vitamin C tablets and some soapy notes. Bitter asparagus aftertaste. My god I hope this an old/bad six pack. Born on 11/30/01. Died on 3/29/02.
