Amber colors with a thin head and scents of fresh hhops. Mild acidic tone also noticed. Not as harsh as ArrogantBastard. Very acidic palate, but finishes quickly.

Bottle. Light orange with a thin head. Mild citrus and pine aroma that comes through stronger in the taste. Good bitter finish and very nicely balanced.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle pours amber. Not a very strong aroma in my example. Very light aroma of citrus, alcohol, and malt. Not much head retention, medium body. Flavor is nicely balanced between sweet toffee and medium hop bitterness. Bitter finish that lingers nicely. Nicely crafted IPA, but will barely make the cut for some hopheads.

Draught. Its got a nice hoppy bite; at the bar it has some kind of hop subtitle added on to the lever. Neither as hoppy or complex as a hopdevil or a alpha king, but very pleasant nonetheless. A little sweet and floral, goes down very easy. Itll wake you up if youre tired at last call. Had a golden orange tinge and a small but lasting head. Would certainly drink it again if I wanted a hoppy IPA.

Great stuff sent to me by Kramer17801. This 12 oz bottle poured a little more golden that I had expected, but the flavor and nose were right on. Very hoppy and vanillay. Nice hop finish. Great stuff.

alobar (3688) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Super IPA. Sweet aroma with IPA-like hops. Clear golden amber color. Smooth drinking. Medium nody. Hoppy bitterness, but a little sweet with no lingering bitter aftertaste.

Enniskillen (2046) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 1, 2005
About time I tried this i guess. Aroma isnt very strong, very fruity and sweet. Body is amber with a creamy white head. Taste isnt overly bitter, rather low ibus for an IPA, but its nice.

tinydancer (52) - Gibsonville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Really nice IPA. Looks nice, clear amber. Aroma is great, of hops and citrus. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter finish from nice hops. Slightly metalic. Great IPA!

Great hoppy aroma and nice amber pour. Hops up front with a touch of malt to make a good balance. Nice finish that leaves you wanting more.

Pours out deep golden color with a head. Fresh citrus aroma. Nice hoppy flavor; grapefruit, pine with touch of spice. Clean finish. Really enjoy this IPA.
