Average IPA. Somewhat of a hoppy flavor, but not much of an aroma. Too light and watery for my taste. Flowery and citrusy notes are completely lacking. ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Straw colored with a medium sized white head. Aroma of citusy hops and a mild honey sweetness. Citrusy and piney hops are balanced by a moderate sweetness. A solid IPA. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 3, 2006
I had this at a tasting at Bevmo
this is a very straightforward west coast IPA. Very citrusy with a lot of hop bitterness. mephisto (1301) - TAIWAN - FEB 2, 2006
ckear golden with beige head. citrus aroma and a very bitter aftertaste. a lack of balance in my opinion, the body and flavor does not justify that bitterness. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2006
A very light almost translucent orange color, with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma is all citrus fruits, and that is pretty much what dominates the flavor as well. This is like sucking on an orange. The mouthfeel has a great hop profile, wonderful acidity, but just not much for body and maltiness. An enjoyable beer, but forgettable.

Maybe I missed something or got a bad batch, but this beer really did not do it for me. It pours a very light orange with a big white head. Aroma lacks the hops I would expect from an IPA. The taste is the same; missing the citrus hop bite, but leaving you with the pilsner-like taste. A good beer, but a bad IPA. paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Light golden amber in color with lingering foamy head. Hop aroma and taste skunky/piney...hop profile I’d identify as pilsner-like. Creamy, finished with nice co2 and hope bite with lingering bitterness. Fairly good, but not the hop profile I look for in an IPA. GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Pours with a small white head on a light golden-yellow body. Refreshing hoppy aroma with pine and floral hops. Bitter hoppy taste with pine hop flavors. Medium thick body. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2006
12 oz bottle-pours a creamy, rocky light tan head with hazy gold/yellow color. Aroma is faint light hops. Taste is hops with a bit of bite. Up to here middle of class & a 3.7. Aftertaste has a flatness that lingers, so a 3.1. SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 5, 2006
A thick pillow of head gently sits across a bronze gold ale. Aroma is very hoppy while also giving grapefruit, and sweet malt a chance. The flavor is of earth, grapefruit, floral flowers and sweet malt.
