This is a great example of a west coast IPA. Great hoppy beer, bitters and flavor are excellent, Light body makes the flavor very hoppy, great beer for hop heads, a refreshing IPA... TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2002
Quite a nice IPA. Is rather
tilted towards the hops in favor of
the malt. Appearance is nice though
cloudy. Again. heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2002
This is a good example of what I perceive to be a West Coast style IPA, loads of hops balanced by some caramel malts. Good, but I found it a little thin in body for the hopping level and a little heavy in the bittering hops compared to the flavor/aroma hops. I'm nitpicking here, this is a good IPA, just a notch below sweetwater and the sublime bell's two hearted. carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - JAN 23, 2002

Just the right amount of bitterness for an IPA. I really, really dig this.

Schmack daddy this was good! The earthy, piney and toffee aromas leap out of the glass and beg you to take that first sip. The heavy malt content and hop flavors smack you in the face. Lots of toffee and wood in conjunction with pine, nuts and a generally earthy flavor. Finishes slightly dry and with average bitterness for the style. The hyped-up malt content and beautiful aroma set this apart. As others have mentioned, sediment is a bit excessive, but doesn't cause a problem for me. Average hazy copper color and large head make for an attractive, but not extraordinary, looking beer. 40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JAN 2, 2002
Fruity hop aroma. Hoppy, fruity taste and very very bitter. Excellent beer. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2001
A typical IPA hopmonster with a nice, very citrusy malt balance. Lacks body, though, and seems watery. dins (266) - Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2001
If you like hops this is the ticket. Bitter and hoppy through and through.
