This brew is excellent. I have been longing for an IPA...This pours a very pale golden color. Head blossoms and then implodes. Nose rivals the monolithic Stone IPA in my opnion. Floral, decadent and spicy. The nose is resinous and sticky like a wet clove. Fkavors are immense. PErhaps its just because I havent had an IPA in a long time but this beer does a jig on my tongue. The amarillos set up the flat resiny hop haze that then gives way to the Warriors spiciness. Notes of sharp cheddar, pine tree sap and sea water. An excellent brew by all means

Pours crystal clear. Wonderful aromas of citrusy hops. The flavors start with a smooth and not too harsh of a bitter and continue all the way through. No malt here, the balance definitely in favor of the hop. A very drinkable high IBU brew.

You cant do much better for an IPA. Nice blend of hops and maltiness. This beer is great.

Had tried the 90 minute in the past so decided it was about time I tried the 60. Poured an orange gold with small amounts of white head. Aroma is absolutely amazing. Makes you just want to dive in. Smells like grapefruit, orange and hops. Light on the palate and perfect on carbonation. Has a nice plesant hoppy flavor without being overpowering. a very relaxing beer to drink. Not quite as good as the 90.

The best sit-back-and-relax-and-enjoy hop-head brew... I love this stuff. Great aroma, great reddish-amber look with a serious head. Pleasantly bitter with a rush of a mouthful. Fine ale.

Pours clear and golden with a white head. Nice, tiny bubbles. The hoppy aroma isnt strong, but pleasant. The hoppiness in the tastes rings of grapefruit. The aftertaste is bitter, but not long. An attractive and tasty IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Pours a sparkling clear copper with a thick off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops and PINE; smells like a christmas tree. Taste is moderately sweet and pleasantly but not overly bitter. Has a ton of hops with plenty of grapefruit/citrus, pine, resin and some toastiness to the malt. Finishes moderately dry with a slight biscuity aftertaste. Medium body and smooth texture with moderate carbonation. Lacing hangs on the glass in thick sheets, really good head retention. Overall, a great session IPA.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Very cleary orangy-gold with a nice sized white head. It has a very distincy sharp bitter aroma, largely of pine hops. The flavor is very nice. The hops are definately present but dont overpower. Floral, grapefruit, and pine. Medium malt flavor and feel provides great balance in the form of a nice carmel malt.

On tap at Fat Heads. Fantastic hoppy aroma. Crisp, spicy flavor that lingers longer than some double IPAs.

Hoppy aromas, a hint of perfume and melon. The bite is solid on the IPA and the hop, malt, barley flavors are smoky and complex. A long finish that stays true to the hops, not souring like some IPA’s will tend to do.
