Cloudy deep yellow pour with a thick head and good lacing. Good floral and citrus in the nose. Decent bite, but still an average IPA. BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Orangish red in color with a nice thick head. Lots of sediment. Smells hoppy. Tastes perfumey and bitter. microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Poured a dark burnt orange color with a lot of yeasty sediment and a very frothy head that lasted the whole beer. A slight citrus aroma with hops over-riding. A bitter hop flavor and some malts. A good full mouthfeel. Great amount of carbonation. Nice overall. Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a slightly hazy copper color with particles floating throughout. The head is small, lingering, and white colored. It has a nice floral hop aroma with a touch of citrus and pine. Full body with moderate carbonation, the flavor is mostly hops with a bit of malt backbone. The finish is lingering and bitter. Nice IPA from Lagunitas.

From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. Not a bad IPA at all. Pours a murky golden amber color with a thick off-white head. The foamy head lasted quite a while. Nice lacing as well. Floral hops aroma. Flavor is very citrusy, and the hops are really not as bold as the glass progresses. Nicely bitter finish. Doesn't have the "snap you with a wet towel" hops that the great IPAs have but otherwise this beer is just fine.

Good aroma, and good appearance. Great taste, very smooth and refreshing. Great after taste. Just makes you want to take another drink. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2003
hazy golden with a big frothy white head. looks like a classic west coast IPA. Intensely bitter grapefruit nose. Clean and full in the mouth, taste cleans up like a pilsner only really bitter and woody. adrenalin112 (57) - Lake Forest, California, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Nice clean top shelf ipa. Not as good or hoppy as the maximus but can hold its own. Citrusy & resfreshing, another great wake-up in the morning beer. stephen (308) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Orange color with bubbly white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Fairly well carbonated. Flavor is dminated by green vegetable flavor and citrus. Fairly thin and refreshing. Braudog (6803) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Light, shiny amber orange beer with a big ol’ poofy head. The aroma is full of essence, malty yet citricly inviting. Very nicely pronounced grapefruit hop tones with a resiny feel and a sweet finish over the tongue. Very, very good.
