Pours a pale gold with a frothy white head that slowly subsides. Nose is piney with hops, with some malt tones. Flavor is a nice hop personality with subtle bitterness. Clean, well balnced and refreshing. Does not push boundaries. Would make a good starter for someone not aquainted with the style. Basic if you’re a hop head looking to really get out there.

Clear medium-golden pour with a very nice initial layer of white head (receded after a minute or so. Nice lacing. Bright grapefruit and piney aroma. Flavor was typical for the style.. bitter citrus and pine with a caramel malty backing. Bitter on the palate, with a medium-length piney finish. Very well-crafted, but could’ve used a bit more depth/complexity. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2005

Tap: copper body. Aroma is huge grapefruit, some citrus. Flavor is the same, well put together IPA. Not a world classic, but certainly enjoyable. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005

Beer Festival 2005) Pale golden with a small head. Strongly flowery-hoppy aroma with toffee hints, quite balanced. flowery, aromatic-hoppy flavor with decent maltiness. Thick, slicky and bitter palate with low carbonation. A straightforward, but still balanced IPA.
Translucent gold color, medium sized foamy head. Cascade family hop aroma, citrusy, resinous, and floral. Some doughy malt notes underneath. Acrid floral hop notes with accompaning resin bitterness. Watery malt peers through. Residual astringency and bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light, fairly dry. Undefined (46) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2005
Small amounts of hops in aroma, not so much malts. Taste is a bit caramel and some hops, but a bit thin. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Clear deep golden amber colored. Mostly lasting small white foam. Direct Cascade nose, sweet and grapefruity. Easy to drink, not so agressive in terms of bitterness, floral, extremely straightforward example. A definition of an American IPA, for the better and for the worse. Mostly dry in mouth, growing a bit more citric acidity character than I usually like. Light-medium bodied, fair carbonation. Still I like Avery’s moderation on that one.
