I don’t have anything cool to say, other than I like this beer. It’s smooth and not overpowering.

Pours orange-yellow with mild frothy head. Big nose. Not BIG, but just what I like in an IPA. Hoppy. Orange and grapefruit notes. Body is a nice yet creamy blend of maltiness and the hops. Bitterness is pleasant at the finish.

Powerful grassy/floral hop aroma like I’ve never experienced. I even detected some mint. Really terrific. Yes, maybe a little sweet, but a great IPA.

Tap. Poured an orange-yellow color. Decent white head, very nice lacing throughout. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Perhaps a little sweet. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Perhaps a bit too malty sweet. Good hop finish. Perhaps at 6% not really a session brew.

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 haven’t had an IPA in a long time but this beer does a jig on my tongue. The amarillo’s 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 can’t 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.

3.8
alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Pours clear and golden with a white head. Nice, tiny bubbles. The hoppy aroma isn’t strong, but pleasant. The hoppiness in the tastes rings of grapefruit. The aftertaste is bitter, but not long. An attractive and tasty IPA.
