Good floral aroma to this one like walking into a flower shop and taking a good wiff. Body was a golden cololor. White head that was decent. Citrus hop flavor that most IPA have was good. Cool and crisp on the palate. Great beer after a day of work. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Avery just doesnt seem to dissapoint me and this one is no exception. Zeswaft (1783) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2005
The smell of the hops is abundant, along with a slight earthy tone.
I don’t know if it was because I had a long day of work, but this is an outstanding IPA. Pours dark gold and a light white head. Full hop aroma with some strong grapefruit notes. Flavor is a very hoppy but light bodied. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Pours an goldish hue with bubbly head and big amounts of lace. Very clear. Nose is floral hop aroma and citrus notes. Taste is big hops up front. Cascade perhaps? Floral and citrus taste dominates in the inital swallow. Finishes a bit bitter with a bit of malt taste at the very end. Very good IPA. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2005
12oz - Subtle floral hop citrus aroma with a touch of carmel. Yellowish copper color with a small quickly fading head that leaves decent lacing. Like the aroma, the hoppiness kinda sneak up on you about 2 seconds after each sip, but it isn’t real strong. A nice balance between the hop and malt makes it quite smooth and easy to drink. A good session brew, but not a "great" IPA.

Nicely done. This IPA is very grassy, which is one of my favorite flavors in IPAs. I should get a keg of this one as it is sometimes available. Tmoney99 (15027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Coppery hue with average white head. Aroma of grapefruit. Medium body. Flavor of lemon, grapefruit with long crisp finish. Refreshing good brew. SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Very heavy citrusy cascade hop flavor and aroma, head stands up to lengthy session, maltiness in the background held up to bitterness well smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle - nice citrusy hop aroma. Fairly standard appearance. Deep golden body with a white, white head. Good lacing. Malty with floral hop finish. Good, but not quite what I had hoped for. bindpmc (88) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Very drinkable. Some citrus/grass tones, some of that cloying jaw-jarring puckering stuff at the back of the mouth, but that’s good. I’m not one to judge much on the head on a bottled beer unless the head is unusually large and fluffy or totally flat. This is neither. It is as it should be, as tall as a fingernail if you will. Malt presence is little, but quaffability is large. At 88, I am surprised it has a rating that low. One of my favorites.
