I was really shocked by this brew, much better than i had expected. The other brews from this company really lacked the depth to impress me. Pours a nice amber with a medium longer lasting white head that leaves some lacing behind. Excellent citrus hops in the aroma, very crisp and powerful. Taste is well balanced with a good dose of light dry malts finished of by a big hop finish. Quite impressed with this new IPA appearing on the shelves, although now that TG IPA is in six packs this stands no chance of becoming my "go to" IPA 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Bottle pours a golden, large white foamy head, wonderful lacing, with extremely light carbonation.   Sharp hop nose, citrusy and bready.   Smells like a good American Strong or Double IPA.   Smooth, yet fiery, hop bitterness on first sip.   Slightly malty, but not enough for my tastes.   Strong citrus peel presense from start to finish.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a strong citrus backing, fresh hop bitterness, and even a bit of tobacco.   My only gripe is that it could stand to be chewier/maltier.   Thanks goes out to TAR for the trade!Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Aroma was great, could smell the hops and Malt right from the pour. No head to speak of but color was equal to other pale ales. Had some aftertaste to it but I would get this one again if I needed a fill bottle at the beer store for a empty spot in my own created six pack.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this one. Dark straw pour with a big white head. Aroma of malt, big resiny hops. Tastes very hoppy, with a resiny floral finish. Medium palate. This one is very good. Kevin (2201) - Montana, USA - JAN 2, 2005

Bottle. Very citrusy hoppy nose. Taste is medium bitter up front sticky sweet on the back end. Doughy and slightly yeasty. Very soft mouthfeel. Overall an above average IPA. frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Flowery hop aroma with some pleasant malty sweetness and orange notes. Golden orange in color with a thin white head. Light sweetness up front, lots of citrus, orange and grapefruit. Moderate bitterness and rather dry in the finish. Pretty solid IPA. PorterPounder (8291) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Picked up at Knightly Liquors in Orlando, Fl. Pours a murky light orange with a sticky white head and decent lacing. Aroma has some malty notes to it, not your typical floral nose that IPAs tend to have. Perhaps a bit of caramel as well. Flavor has the patented grapefruity citrusy west coast hoppiness, with a decent back end caramelly maltiness but a little too one dimensional leaning towards the hops. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, finishes strong. All in all a decent IPA, better than the other offerings I have had from this brewer. csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Orangish color, off-white head. Orange/citrus peel nad floral aroma. Floral hops dominated flavor, citrusy. Like many of the other Rockies Brew Co, it has lots of hops flavor, but not too much bitterness. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Pours with a medium sized white colored head. A full gold body with few bubbles. The aroma is orange poeel, bread and a little corriander. The taste is slightly sweet and bready. Thin mouthfeel. There are some oranges and a little pine in the aftertaste. A very nice IPA.
