Had this on draft at humperdinks in Arlington, Texas. Pours a dark amber color with a small head. This pint I had last night didn’t seem as hoppy as it usually is, but most of the time it has a real nice hoppy taste with a nice fruity after taste. They actually call this one Big Red IPA at my location. ChoppingMall (47) - Sleepy Hollow, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2011
On tap in Wheeling, IL. Pretty reddish-brown color with a lacy head. Hop profile is Amarillo all the way, citrusy & a little bit grapefruity, with an acidic puckering, kind of reminded me of Alpha King in some ways. Relentless, bitter aftertaste that lingers on the palate like crazy. Barely any malt detectable. Kind of makes you want a glass of water. It’s not bad, give it a try. Who the hell is that guy in the logo? He looks like he has a swollen face. Maybe from bee stings. drkilmer (35) - Myersville, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2004
On tap in Dallas, TX. Loaded with piney/grapefruity hop aroma. Tons of grapefruit taste, but no malt foundation to speak of. One dimensional. Still ... if you like grapefruity IPA’s, you might like this one. ldg1413 (13) - USA - MAY 27, 2009
On tap at CB & Potts. Doesn’t really taste like an IPA, not hoppy at all. For that reason, perhaps I should discount it completely. But the head stands up which is more than Sierra Nevada can say. Great lacing. Smooth, doesn’t give you the gross-mouth feeling of many wannabe IPAs. Bigirish311 (3) - USA - JUN 12, 2010 does not count
Enjoyed on tap at the Ram on Tacoma waterfront. Beer is hazy amber. Strong citrus flavor from the hops. Not quite as big or as hoppy as I like my IPAs. Moderate to weak malt flavor (for the style). Hops are very present but do not overwhelm. Overall a very decent beer, but not my favorite.
