Striking clarity, wonderfully enticing nose that oozes with grapefruit. A subtle malt undertone struggles to keep pace with this hop fest. Bitterness and citrus of hops are prevalent from start to finish. Very good afternoon refresher. 666seth (229) - California, USA - FEB 11, 2002
a refreshing beer for once in a while. Not a great IPA at all. light in hoppy and malty flavor, a bit of a floral aroma.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Decent hops, though not very complex. OK finish - nothing to write home about. 40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 11, 2001
Fruity hoppy aroma. Very fruity bittersweet taste with slight alcohol twang. Tasty beer. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 The beer pours a cloudless somewhat deep golden amber color, the head unboastful, the texture creamy, the lace that remains is a fine sheet to conceal the glass. A perfect light floral tone appears first, followed by sweet malt and fresh aroma, quite a nose pleaser. The start is malt, sweet on the sides of the tongue; top is retiring in its mouth feel. Hops are spicy and lightly biting with the acidity temperate, aftertaste long lasting and hop bitter. A nice representative IPA, a gentler IPA, midway between the English and California IPA’s, like Stone and Alesmith.
