This is a super strong IPA. I really like it! To me it tastes a littler more sweet than bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 (WCC2003): Clear amber body with floaties, small off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong grapefruit, some floral, and light pine. Taste is grapefruit, light floral, light sweet, finishing medium bitter. Dry finish. Medium-full body, chewy. Great, well-balanced beer. (Tasting notes from Fall 2000): Great beer! Good hops start to finish, and exceptionally well rounded

California seems to be the best state for IPAs: Lagunitas, Stone Anniversary, Speakeasys Big Daddy, and now this gem. Crisp, almost rought hops combine with a very sweet malt balance for a delectible libation. Awesome.
