The overall taste is exceptionally good with a little but highly delightful jaunt to caramel-land. I think it’s a little bit too bitter though.

Dopo averla bevuta più volte, non posso fare altro che definirla la birra più buona che ho mai bevuto finora, per la mia scala di valori e secondo i miei gusti. Dorata con una bella schiuma bianca e persistente, al naso è meravigliosa, un’esplosione di profumi avvolgenti e pungenti. Il gusto è perfettamente equilibrato tra le note dolci maltate e quelle amare dei luppoli. La struttura, semplice e non invadente, la rende beverina e fresca. Il piacevole retrogusto conclude un’esperienza fantastica. Sono curiosissimo di provarla anche alla spina.

I tried this one a while back, but I liked it. I would drink it again if I could find it.

I love IPA’s so read on with a grain of salt. It is really hard to believe that this is a SanFransisco beer. Great bitterness, great color. The hops are played out to the hilt while still being a great drink. Starts bitter, finishes bitter, but never sour or tart. A non bloating beer that keeps you thirsty for more. Move over Brittania there’s a new ’Queen’ of IPA’s and ’she?’ hails from SanFransisco CA.

A top quality Liberty-very fresh and well handled (learn to decifer the "bottled on" code on the back). Great combination of hops and fruit in the nose; dry flavor with what was once a big hop finish. Now that we've all been broken by drinking over-the -top beers, this is almost a session beer, but one of the best around. Mmm...

This is my favorite IPA on the planet, ...now Mars makes some good ones, but we don’t rate them here. The beautiful pungency of the Cascade hops stay with you as you drink this beer. The head is cumulus thick, the color is straw yellow, and the tiny bubbles rush continously to the top of the beer. The apple sweetness arrives as the hop bitterness disappears. This beer is unique in it’s category, and is an incredible example of what can be done with this style.

Nice body, aroma,...the flavors!!! So many! This is the best beer made in America. My Flavorite, hands down.

Cask at the Wigan Beer Festival. Light gold/amber colour with a nice white head. Very floral aroma with that Cascade grapefruit touch. Very bitter with more grapefruit. Wonderful balance with the maltiness coming through along with a bitter finish. Superb stuff.

(Bottle) Clean, crisp, light, cool. The aroma doesn’t strike me as terribly complex when I just smell it, but when I start drinking it a lot of complexity emerges. Pleasantly dry, very bitter, just the right kind of carbonation to balance the aroma. A hint of sourness but none of the unpleasant type. A rich, coarse maltiness. This is the second-best American Pale Ale that I’ve tried...surpassed in my opinion only by Great Lakes’ Burning River, although that is a very different beer (this beer is more dry and has less citrusy/fruity character of the hops).

Bevuta alla spina in un ottimo pub di Levanto (SP).... davvero una birra fantastica....una ale magnifica! Necessariamente vietato fermarsi alla prima pinta! Skol
