12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is of floral hops and slight malt. The taste is hoppy with a nice bitter finish. Overall a nice session beer.

12oz. bottle into pilsner glass. Pours a clear, copper color with a light white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of grapes and citrus fruit with a hint of hops. Flavor is of grapes and hops with a vanilla finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Could use a little more hop flavor, but one of the better more "generic" IPAs

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.

Medium hoppiness, very crisp with a smooth body.

Nothing inspiring here, on the whole. Hops sort of got lost, and some pallid bitterness. Alarmingly clear.

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
