On Tap in Lawrence: As much as I dislike this place, its more or less across the street from me and they do have decent beers.
This particular beer was very hoppy. It had a minimal head and carbination. An amber/orange color. Has a bitter front and finish with a flash of sweet towards the end, kind of suprised by the complexity as these beers tend to be simple, imo. I liked it.

Orange-copper with a nice sticky, laced head. Respectable citric hop nose and a fruity/well-balanced flavor with a bit of grassy tinge. Excellent. Nuffield (4245) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Decent head, clinging on a light brown body. Murky aroma. Long-lasting bitterness, astringent and a hint metallic. Tried it first, and then with my spicy food (Black Bean Burger) and it didn’t blend well, surprisingly. (on tap at Lawrence, KS location) csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 Sample glass, 4-5oz. Orange/red color. Pretty lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor with a nice malty base. Bittersweet finish, tart.
Had again, pretty tasty. Hazy red, off white head, some lacing. Aroma of fruits (grapefruit/citrus) and malt/, taste is similar to aroma. I was pretty shitty by the time I had this, but I liked it a lot. I think 75th St is good at this style, including their excellent IIPA.
Cask version is excellent. Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Really good I.P.A. One of the best (if not the best) 75th Street beers. Pleasant aroma, and nice look, not too bitter yet has a nice bite during the aftertaste. Good choice while here, and you’ll be tempted to get a growler to take home.

Definite hop aroma, overall sweet in the nose and flavor. Very dry palate and a sweet peach and pineapple flavor. More bitter than the 53 IBU would suggest... some sweet plum shows up in the finish. cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Nut brown. Slightly chewy malt and bitter -- 52 IBUs. Very straightforward, tasted like one malt and one hop variety was used. Not too grapefruity or grassy, a good blend of both. Better than what I’d expected but if you are in Lawrence go to Free State instead. gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Very light (flavor) for an IPA, lack of malt, balance - OK but nothing to get wild about. GABF 2002 argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2002
Light copper body with eggshell white head. More pine than grapefruit aroma and flavor. Malt seems absent. Very mediocre beer. OldJack99 (114) - USA - SEP 2, 2002
Not one of my favorites because it had too much hops in it for me, I did enjoy it but I'm not a fan of really hoppy beers, if you are you'd like this one. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
