This was the first IPA I ever tried. I tended to shy away from them, because I was told IPAs would destroy my palate for other beers. It kinda did, but with beers like this, I’m really not complaining. Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 30, 2002
Perfect hoppy/citrusy aroma, flavors are juicy and extravagant, with hop oil throughout. Eye-wateringly bitter all the way through, but a terrific malt backbone evens her out and makes for a superbly balanced beer. Its unfiltered, which seems to add to its flavor. A bit drying on the palate. Sensational!

This is a great, well balanced IPA that is crisp and refreshing. Not overly malty or overly hoppy, as some might complain about with certain IPAs. I am not averse to imperial IPAs or IPAs that are stronger or happier than this one. I’m just saying that I enjoy it as much as my benchmark favorites, which often run quite strong, malty and hoppy. I really like this beer. Perhaps I am not off the charts to the far right of the scale in my preferences anymore. This brew deserves to be very popular, as it is served everywhere these days. It is well crafted and satisfies even a hard nosed, hop-head, high gravity beer snob like me. rafaeldiasef (2) - rio de janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 4, 2016 does not count
Fez pouca espuma, que logo dispersou. Bem aromatica. Coloração dourada levemente turva. Amarga, mas não muito, gosto citrico e floral. Resumindo, top! Deliciosa! BillAhlman (2) - Grapevine, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2003 does not count
I love this hoppy IPA. Their Pale Ale is also nice, not as hoppy...I serve the IPA to the real hopheads and to the unititated, I serve the Pale Ale dwyerpg (6078) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Smell is faint for an IPA, but the body is beautiful. The head just blends ianto the flavor, which is mildly hoppy as far as IPAs go. Truly, though, this beer is best described as delicious. A must try, especially since this is the type of IPA that can be enjoyed numerous times in one sitting. Thanks parents! Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2005 A "REAL" Winner! When someone tells me a particular beer is a regular award winner, I am instantly skeptical and unconsciously think I will already dislike it, as if to say - award winner hah! well we’ll see about that... But this multiple award-winning IPA is truly a winner in my book. On tap at the "Sweet Spot" bar in Santa Rosa, CA. pours a beautiful yellow gold with saffron highlights. its frothy beige head goes the distance kept company by the ubiquitous chunky lacing. the aroma can only be described as "berry delight" or "fruity tooty". rasberries, strawberries, grapefruit, cherries. there all there. pine hops and toasted malts hide out in the background and assuage the strong citrus bellowings. tastes of light hops, (corresponds to the slightly bitter taste), sweet malts, grapefruit, and dough. finishes crisp and more solidly bitter. light mouthfeel. Refreshing!
