Bottle. Copper appearance, slight haze with a small but frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy, slight pine and strong citrus--almost fruity in the combination. Flavor is reverse, the citrus is mild and pine is strong, and finish is malty. Grassy aftertaste. Very good beer. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Bottle. Golden color with a white head. The taste is a full body with strong hoppy and light fruity notes. Rather dry palate. BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Nice burnt orange color with a nice head. Aroma is very piney and citrucy. Tastes of earthy hops With a moderately sweet background to balance things out. Great mouthfeel and co2 level. This is a great IPA. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2006 The aroma is just as advertised with piney and citrus like hops. There is also some caramel in the aroma. The appearance is amber/red with a medium head that is very persistent. The flavor is enjoyable even if you’re not a big IPA lover. It’s bitter with all those elements from the aroma (pine, citrus, and caramel). The palate is fuller than many IPA’s. This is good even though it’s a little overrated here. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2006
this is a nice ipa, i had it after the hercules so it felt like it needed a push but still solid citrus hops and flowering notes. crisp and refreshing easy to drink and good.

Although nothing here to surprise you, this is a great IPA nonetheless. Bitter hop bite, citrus flavors, it has everything you would expect, and nothing that you wouldn’t. crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Part of my 17 Beer Sampler at the Brew Kettle. Orange/copper color with head, definitely tell it’s an IPA, big hop bite to it, pretty citrsuy like grapefruit with an alcohol kick to it, but very hoppy. stouby (4692) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2005
Bottle, at home.
Dark orange with off-white head, almost diminishing, excellent lacings. Aroma, a heavy hoppy nose. Flavor moderate sweet, heavy to harsh bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Bottled. Pours a clear copper color with a white head- good lacing. Pine and grass aromas along with some oranges and malt. Very resinous palate. Flavor is oranges, pine, grapefruit and sweet. Strong bitterness. This would do fine as an everyday beer around my house. happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Bottled 12-8-05.Very nice resinous hop aroma and flavor with a solid crystal malt and company backing.Tropical hop(grapefruit,pineapple) aromas and flavors of tangerine and mango as it warms(reminding me of IIPA’s).Very drinkable.Has a bit of that Avery IPA vibe minus the Styrian Goldings and a cloying malt character.This is one of the best Colorado IPA’s ive tried.Purchaed at Ronies bev Forest Hill,MD.
