2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks good, nice pour, thick sticky head.
What’s with the flavor though? Burnt grass, broccoli, some hints of used ashtray. Sickly sweet and extra heavy body.
I’ll drink it but never buy it again.
This is pretty lightweight for any style IPA, seeming more like an EPA. The aroma is pretty tame and mild, some caramel and grains coupled with a floral/herbal hopping. Medium to light in body, it has sweet grainy malts in the flavor with a soft bitterness that does grow somewhat during the drinking, but not to the level of an IPA. Sessionable enough.jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2007

This beer is disgusting. Literally. It looks nice, but I bet you can’t force yourself to drink the whole thing...tastes like crap ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 30, 2006
One of the weaker and uninspired IPA’s I have tasted. I agree with the other review, I taste asparagus and grass. I would not buy this again. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Hazy orange-amber body under a foamy light tan head. Asparagus, white pepper, wet grassy hay and caramel malt in the aroma. Nasty flavor. The wet hay comes to the forefront with not much else coming though. This is the big wet bale on the wagon smacking you in the tongue. Dry yet rich mouthfeel with that bitter wet hay thing coating the tongue. I don’t think this bottle is bad, the beer is just very misguided.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a strange brown colored body with a white head. The aroma is like wet, partially rotting stale hay. The flavor is stale wet hay and ickyness. Bad lingering palate. Wish it woulda been better. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
light off orange color w/ a big fluffy off white head w/ some decent lacing. smell si bad.. no more to be said. Palate is fizzy and mildly offensive. Flavor is just not good fizzes on my tongue to distract me from the rotten hay and mud flavor covered in hops to distract you from the bad.
NO! Just pour it out. calivania (62) - USA - JUN 7, 2006
Whatever. This one is a poser. It is prentending to be rich but this looks and taste like a burnished penny. A more or less sucky beer. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2006
This was not good! I got it at the bargain table at the local BevMo, and I know why. Word must have gotten round that this beer sucked! If you are looking for an IPA with noticable hops, do not drink this. Thank You. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Everything El_Borracho said...plus a strange hint of floral mustiness in the background. An English style IPA from a brewer in the heart of the So-Cal American Imperial IPA birthplace? Why?
