Out of site. Probably gave low scores but it’ll make you try it with medium expectations. Served very cold in special sampler glasses. Thanks Cathy for a fantastic time. Long live the brewery. Alcohol dominates this ale; West coast hops aroma! Labeir (4) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2005 does not count
Wonderful hop freshness, A balanced N.W. style IPA. Great bitterness without hiding the nice malt charactor. A benchmark! Terminus (3710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Salida, CO Beer Fest-tap-Pours a nice orange hue with minimal white head. decent lacing. Nice fresh hop aroma, just liked a harvest ale. Lots of green hops on the flavors. Malts are toasty and add decent balance to this IPA. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Amber color with hoppy, floral nose. Bitterness and alcohol dominate this ale. GABF notes also mention the word "boring". 3fourths (9356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2003
GABF 2003: Dark gold and amber appearance. Beautiful cascade hop aroma. Sharp, stinging bitterness immidiately evident. While this is nice, it masks the flavor a little too much, so only a little hint of peaches and lemon show up. Palate is quite nice for an American IPA.

West coast hops aroma. Good color - a deep amber hue. Taste is bitter with not too much other flavor and mouthfeel is average. Good IPAs to me are more than just bitter, but this one is decent.
