4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber-orange hue with a tight, creamy and durable white head. Had one of the freshest hop aromas of any beer Iíve ever sampled. As a homebrewer it reminded me of the burst of hop aroma when you first open a vacuum sealed bag of freshly harvested hop flowers. Lots of lemony/orange citrus notes in the aroma. Palate was smooth and light. Flavors were nicely balanced between the lightly toasted malts and the citrusy hops. Found the finish to be a bit tame and quick, but overall a well made, solid American IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Pours and orangish copper with a white head. Had floral and citrus aromas. The flavor was very hoppy and citrusy but did not leave a bitter aftertaste which was nice. Was a great IPA.

Pours amber with a fluffy white head that has good lacing. The aroma is very hoppy. The flavor is very well balanced with hops, but not overbearing and a citrus taste. This is a very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Wonderful floral hop aroma. Pours out with a nice bubbly and slighly lacy head... slight haze to the fine deep gold colour. The flavor is heavily hopped (as would be expected of an IPA), sweet mild fruity tones, very inviting for the next taste. A hair bit on the bitter side for the aftertaste but overall an excellent IPA..

Slighty hazy orange with a small white head. Smells and actually tastes a bit like oranges. Very refreshing. Floral, but not too piney. Good beer, maybe a tad over-rated.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear yellowish-orange color with a thick off-white head. Strong grapefruit aroma on this one with huge hops complimenting the grapefruit. Flavor is very strong on the grapefruit, maybe almost too much. Finishes off with hops that linger on the palate for awhile. Still a very delicious IPA.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 My first India Pale Ale! Has a very fruity, banana scent. Excellent to sup with. A fresh, fruity , and herbal (?) orange taste to it with a zing at the end. It does have a nostalgic taste to me! It reminded me of orange-flavoured medicine syrups I used to take when I was younger (no wonder I got better real quick!)! A highly recommended IPA! A special thanks to my friend and drinking mate Adam M. for the bottle!

Great IPA, one of the best. I had it in a bottle, but Iíve had it on draft and even on hand-pull at the wonderful Berkeley Front. I would recommend this beer in any form. Nice bitterness to it, wonderful floral smell, and very drinkable if youíve had experience with bitter beers. Not for the faint of heart, but I guess thatís why itís called two-hearted?
