beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
One pint, 6 oz brown bottle purchased from Armanettis, Mandelein, IL. Hazy orange ale having a small diminishing white head and spare lacing. Soft carbonation. Good fruity, caramel, and hop aromas. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, citrus, and hop flavors. Finishes with light lingering hop bitterness and malt aftertaste. Well-balanced but skewed towards hoppiness but not extreme. Went well with my lasagna dinner. This is an excellent drinkable hoppy beer.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Red/orange with a foamy off white head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is piney hops and sweet malts. Has a nice lush malt body. Flavor starts as sweet citrus and then changes to grassy hops in the finish. Quite bitter and slightly dry. It tastes closer to a double IPA than a regular.

Bjorn74 (3) - Copenhagen V, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2005 does not count
Excellent aroma of fir-needles and grass, with some sweet notes of malt. Not much head, but that might be pouring - a deep golden/bronze colour. A lovely combination of sweet and bitter taste, balancing towards the bitter. A very potent, almost burning, hop-experience, great for a hop-lover! A bit unbalanced in the overall flavour/palate picture.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours clear, light amber with a creamy white head. Citrus and pine in the nose. Citrus and pine in the flavor. Body is medium, doesnt feel like 6.8 %. Bitterness hangs around a while. Pretty good.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
2003 Maverick bomber. One of those frustrating beers to pour. A huge creamy head blossoms no matter how gentle you are and takes forever to dissapate. Murky burnt orange color, perfect. Aroma and flavor have both mellowed out with the 3 or so years of age on this bottle. The malts are more discernable with the hops having lost some of their bite while becoming more refined. Still there is a crisp bitter presence throughout the beer more rich than pungent. One of the very best IPAs, this one could give many a brewers double IPA a run for its money on flavor.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 12 ounce bottle. Tons of piney, resinous, hop aroma. Copper and gold, depending on the light, with a billowing white head. As the head fades, most of it clings to the side of the glass. Has to be the best lacing Ive ever seen. Lots of spice, earthy hop flavor, with some of the typical grapefruit and caramel. Big time bitter. I bit puckering. Starts out sweet, and finishes dry, again, that is probably due to hops more than anything. Welcome in my glass anytime.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2005
The aroma is superb. A complex mix of herbs, pine, citrus--all the good American IPA elements. The flavor is rich and smooth, even a little juicy, but not quite as complex as the aroma. This beer almost gets into IIPA territory, with its high alcohol and huge amounts of hops. Reminds me a little bit of Victorys Hop Wallop, actually. I will certainly buy this again.

framebender (56) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Best IPA I have ever had. Strong strong fruity hop flavor with just enough malt balancing to not overpower the hops. Great hop aroma with tight lacy pale head. Great beer.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Bottle. Pours amber with some haze and a thin white creamy head. Faint aroma of malt, some bread notes, but hops seemed to have faded. Flavor of caramel, toffee, mild toastiness, and piney hops. Bitter finish, with some notes of tea and soap. Of the three IPAs I had, this weekend, this was the weakest. Lost Coast Indiga and Mendocino IPA were better IMO. This is still decent, but not worth the price I pay in TN.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2005
On tap. Poured a slightly hazy golden color, with a thin white head that lasted the whole experience. Aroma of bread and big hops. This is a really well balanced IPA, the marriage of malt and hops reaches near perfection in this beer. The only problem i had with this, was that it seemed a bit thin, at least to me. I would still drink this again, and again, and again.
