Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Good flavor. Not as hoppy as American IPA, but hops are definitely in there. Well rounded, smooth kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Draft. This is their original pre-racer 5 IPA. Reddish copper color with a nice off-white head. Lower hop aroma. Nice hop flavor - grapefruit and summer fruits - with some caramel backing. Lower bitterness and aroma than Racer 5. IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006
On tap at the pub. A light brown IPA with a tan head. Hoppy aroma with some bitterness in the taste. but more in the aftertaste. jb (3347) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2009
On draft at McG’s, I wonder why so few ratings? Not as massive as the prior taste of sly fox, but still a standard IPA. Nice hazy look to this, a bit pale, thick head. Standard grapefruit and pine.

Peaches, hops, pretty simple taste... fruit, slight bitterness from northwest hops. mild with a thin body. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Had this one on draught in Oswego, Illinois. Clear, medium orange pour with a delightfully thick, foamy white head, nosy and carmelly in the nose with a floral taste throughout, bitter but finishing very alcoholic. Good! AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2012
The pallet is what stands out on the beer. I get all the piney grassy hops of an ipa, but the pallet is crisp and smooth. Pretty good, nothing exceptional, but an every day ipa fo sho trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2005
A good IPA. Tan and orange color, slight cloudiness, with a citrus and hop aroma. Crisp hoppy and citrus taste and properly bitter. Would have liked a little more hops, but a good IPA, nonetheless. Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Pours a nice anber with a good white head. Has nice aroma of citrus hops, fruits and flowers. Has a good mouthfeel. Good carbination. Not as hearty as Racer 5 but still pretty good. Nice bitter finish.
