Too citrus of a flavor & aroma, but a nice balance, very smooth, very crisp, nice aftertaste, but just didnt have that super-clean crisp & hoppiness that I associate with an IPA, maybe Im being too particular, but just didnt meet my expectations from all the other reviews and the hype, but still a very good IPA

Seems a pretty standard hop-fruity IPA. Enjoyed the hops, very floral sensibility, but palate wasnt as creamy as Id like, nor did the hops linger in the finish as long as Id prefer. Good, but have found hopmonsters that punch you with hops I like more.

My favorite IPA. The cascade hop head is the nicest Ive tried. One of Barclays best sellers. Now, if only theyd bring it to Utah (yea, right).

This is a very easy drinking IPA, smoooth with a wack of hops. Speed Racer would be proud, now where is Pops?

Resinous surface, floral hopping, substantial hopping, some malt sweetness, dry hop bonanza, this is amazing. A powerful brew. Re-Rate of : Big sweet sticky lacing, big hops. Some malt a bit sweet for the style. Crisp and easy medium sharp finish. Its fun and I like the Speed Racer ref.

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
