JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 13, 2004
Cloudy golden body with some orange hues. Large, creamy egg-shell colored head. Smells strongly of pine hops, the bright and crispy type, and also tonic water and light citrus. Taste is sweet and hoppy but suffers from some wateriness. Hops are very big and bright pine needles/cones, pineapple and some floral aromas. Aftertaste is drying, very strong hops. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle poured a cloudy darker yellow with a good but fading head.
very weak aroma of hopps.
Citrus and hopps flavor make this a very good refreshing easy drinking beer!! mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2004
BottleThis was hoppy, sweet and delicious. My first taste was of skunkweed :) Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale...one of my favorites. The only difference was the aroma wasn’t as pronounced as the SNCA. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2004

Poured a medium hazy yellow color with an averaged sized head. Hoppy/grassy aroma. Citris and grassy taste. Nice bitter bite. Alcohol content well hidden. Decent IPA.

Nice big head and good mouthfeel, It is not overwhelming bitter like some higher rated US IPA’s. I found this one enjoyable mjg74 (3141) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours a dark golden color. Nose consists of hops and canned pears. Strong hoppy flavor, kind of sharp and bitter at times. Not extremely well rounded. Does have some good hop flavor going on. Finish is quite bitter. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2004
Slightly cloudy and w/ a pale orange color. Little or no head with somewhat big bubbles. Nice nose of apricot, slight citrus, and some pine. Palate is not bad with a hoppy bitter finish, though the flavors don’t seem fully developed. Some nice pine, and apricot, very fresh flavors. Not bad but not the most exciting IPA whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Clear deep golden body, moderate carbonation, and soft, frothy white head that left significant lace. Cheesy-citrus hop and butterscotch maltiness in the nose. Flavor is metallic and resinous. Spicy hop quality dominates the flavor and doesn’t allow any malt or yeast character to come through. Another underwhelming Acme beer. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Bottle. Clear, yellowish in color with a nice white head that lasts. Citrus hoppy aroma. Nice beer. Very hoppy flavor. Good beer. Little or no malt character, Enjoyable.
