Smells of prunes. Pours darkish with a healthy head. Semi haze. Tastes of roasted walnuts drizzed with malt. The aftertaste of a campfire lingers on the palate, but not for long. I like this brew! Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz, shared w/gputty. Golden orange pour with a small white head. Nose is mostly resinous pine with some citrus notes. Slightly sweet flavor, medium maltinessand a touch of sour orange. Intensely bitter finish. gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2006
From 12oz. bottle. Pours a golden hued orange with thin white head. Nose is syrupy pine with candied orange. Good thick palate with malty body. Light citrus and lots of bitter in the flavor, even though it’s on the sweet side. A solid IPA. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2006
White head on a dark yellow body. I have a taste for IPA and this one fulfilled my expectations. Obvious hoppy taste, notes of caramel, dry and bitter, this one’s got it all. I’m ready to taste more of it! redave (166) - squaw valley, California, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Beautiful deep amber color, nice head, good aroma. This is a very good IPA. Good full flavored, hoppy, bitter, well balanced. It’s been in the refrigerator for several months, but still has a fairly good hoppy aroma. Definitely a "rebuy"!

35,5 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Great hoppy and caramel aroma also hints of nuts. Great tasty flavour of burned caramel and quite hoppy. Ends up very dry and bitter. A very nice tasty IPA endeed. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear amber body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and grapefruit, with an evergreen aroma with it. Flavor began with hops, grapefruit and a subtle caramel sweetness, but evolved into a bitter, evergreen flavor that I didn’t love. Palate is ordinary. A good IPA, but not one of my favorites. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a notched bottled month and week date on right side of front label. Made a good appearance, poured a semi-cloudy copper with a large foamy pale tannish white head that reduced to a thin bubbly lacing. Had a big fresh piney and citric hop nose with a floral earthiness as well. A crisp, hoppy textured medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Piney and earthy hoppiness upfront, the bitterness balanced by fruity, lightly sweet maltiness, more of a gentle rolling bitterness on the tongue, and a dry grassy/hay hoppiness and subtle grainy maltiness in the finish.
A highly quaffable and tasty AIPA, one of the better ones out there, at an affordable price, well worth seeking out.

Dark clear glowing amber. Great aroma. Thick head. Piney hops build to a grapfruit rind finish. Great hops punch in the mouth. Hops linger forever. Extremely dry. Tongue puckers lto the bitter dry finish ike with a dry Souvignon Blanc. Very drinkable. Almost no maltiness. I need a good balance and the palate was too dry without the malt finish but a fantastic example of superhopping. Hop hop hop. Crash (549) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Poured a hazy orange with small off-white head. Aroma was a combination of malty and hoppy. This was one of the best IPAs I have ever had.
