again provided by hopsrus, Thanks. Decent IPA, nice looking botlle actually made me expecting more, oops marketing got me.Good hops present, but after prevously drinking a 3 Floyds Dreadnaught, my palate was shot somewhat, over all still a good IPA, nice citrus, pine flavours,this one needs another try and not folowing Dreadnaught next time.

Another terrific beer. The hop aroma was strong--the most perfumey smelling beer I've had. The flavor was pretty well balanced, if a little sweet. Thanks again to hopsrus for this sample.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 Re-rate: Bright, floral, citrus hop nose. Flavor sticks to the tongue. Original: Hop-nosed and not a huge flavor. O.K.

A pretty good IPA. Tried it right before the White Knuckle and it just wasn't as good. Pretty bitter and somewhat balanced. Could have used some more sweetness to balance.

Wow. Great pale amber orange color. This but dense little white head that wanted to stay for dessert. Bready, hoppy, arresting aroma. Smooth as silk and not a hint of the 7%. Wonderful, room clearing burbs followed for an hour!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 I could have played connect the dots for hours with the amount of floaters in this one, apple cider appearance with a thin white scattered head, aroma was extremely fruity with apples, pears, & overripe plums & peaches...flavor alive with tart green apple skins, pear cores with seeds, hop flowers & stems... chewy and thick, creamy...week-old apple cider like finish with loads of unbalanced hops

Copper colored with a fruity aroma and long lasting white head that leaves lots of lacing. Starts out malty but finishes bitter and dry. Hops really kick in at the end, but not as much as some other IPA's. This one is very good and worth seeking out.

Bottle. Amber color with a white head. Well hopped with a floral aroma. It was balanced but no real kick or malty twist to add character. Tap in mid-October: Hittin' the hops. Somewhat sweet. Piney and not balanced.

Fairly sweet and not nearly as much hops as I've become a custom to in an IPA. Despite what many sound like like a complain, I found it an excellent brew. Tnanks Herbjones for this one!
