More of a golden than a copper color. IPAs have grown on me, so maybe after trying a few more Ill have to re-rate this one. Its too hoppy for my current tastes. It is very palatable however, which is something I really enjoy in a beer. I like the sensation after taking a good size sip.

Not as hoppy as others have described. But, it is a nice well balanced beer.

on tap. Poured golden copper, with a nice head. Aroma was citrus and hops. Flavor was citrus and hops. Watery mouthfeel. Good beer, but there are several IPAs that put it to shame.

Gold to amber colour with fast disapearing white foam. Nice hoppy aroma. Floral bitterness. I enjoyed it...

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 A very pleasant, flowery aroma greets you upon opening this beer. The color is nice for an IPA. Not the hoppiest IPA Ive ever had, a nice starting point for novice beer drinkers. Slight aftertaste is typical for this type of beer. One of my favorite IPAs...especially the draft.

On tap pour is a heavy gold/copper with medium carbonation. Mouthful is a little sticky for my taste. Aroma is very light...hard to pull out the hops. Flavor is fairly bland, bready with a strong bitterness but the hops dont really have any complexity Not my favorite as far as ipas go

One of the best IPAs ive had. It has a deep copper color, with a sweet slightl floral taste at first and then a slight bitterness, though its not overpowering like some IPAs. An excellent IPA.

The aroma on mine was very funky. To me it savored of the remnants of the kettle after brewing. However, there were evident esters that softened the impact. The taste was balanced and adequate. This was an excellent cross between malt and bitterness, with a bitter finish to win in the end.

Slightly bitter/grapefruity hops. Pretty nice hoppy aroma and a bit of sweet malt in there too. Effervescent yet smooth palate.
