This beer has a hazy golden color and an alchoholic aroma. The taste: floral at first, but the hops quickly overcome any other taste. Still, its crisp. clean and refreshing. Great for hot weather. Unfortunately, not available in Alabama.

This is a good IPA from one of my favorite brewers. It pours a golden amber color, and has a nice hoppy aroma. The flavor is primarily of malt and bitter hops. This is one you can have time and again, and is especially great during the summer months.

This is a solid IPA. The hop character is less floral than many of its contemporaries. The color is dark amber with nice head retention. 60 minute has a very subtle malty aroma and chewy, bitter finish that will satiate the hophead demon that dwells in the worst of us.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2006
Medium amber in colour with average carbonation. The aromas are quite well balanced between the light crystal malts, and the citrus-spice element of the hops. Full in the mouth, with the malt (both crystal and a bit of toasted) leading the way. The hops were there in abundance, but not so much as to overwhelm things. A very classy and refined IPA.

Hangover (1124) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Golden pour with a frothy and lasting white head. Hoppy aroma, not overpowering and a good bit of malt in the background. Taste is of very floral hops, not too much, but still thick and resinous. Toasty malt in the finish. Crisp and slighly sweet finish. Darn good.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Pours a fairly dark golden color with moderately thick head. Strong aroma of floral hops and a slight sweetness. Flavor is not overly hoppy, but very nice indeed. Toasty grain in the beginning, followed by bitter floral hops and balanced with caramel maltiness. A good brew.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2006
On tap-at the Brewery-Wasnt expecting to enjoy this beer as much as I did-not really an IPA fan-but this one was good. Poured a golden amber color w/a small white head. Had a nice hopped, floral, citrus flavor-hops didnt overpower everything else. Had good balance-reminded me somewhat of a wheat beer. Long sweet finish. Refreshing, smooth. Good summer drinking beer. Picked up a sixer for the beach this weekend!!

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2006
A pretty solid IPA. Nice white not too thick or thin foam head. Golden amber, clear. Floral/citrus aroma. Pretty smooth, nice for a summer relaxing on the deck atmosphere.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Well, it pours a golden color with a nice white head that laces well. Flavor was of some spice and hop, but not to overpowering, despite being an IPA. This was a little smoother than I was expecting, but was still pretty good.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015

First rating, 2006: Biggish offwhite head over light copper body. Tight rubbery (?!?) sweetish aroma with faint roastiness. Taste is clear, sharp bitter grapefruit with some sweetness and faint, faint roasty aftertaste. Quite dry. A different and very interesting IPA. I enjoyed the sharpness of the bitterness. (0.355l bottle.) 6,4,7,3,16=3.6

Second rating, 2015: Big white head. Clear deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Resiny gooseberry aroma with generic fruit and gunpowder notes. Not entirely fresh? Dry resiny fruity gooseberry taste with gunpowder notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity resiny wooden aftertaste with spicy herbal notes. Lingering toffee and cake notes. Nice, drinkable, relatively straightforward. This is the beer there was so much fuss about 10 years ago? I dont quite get it. (0.355l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.) 6,4,6,3,13=3.2
