Copper body with beige head. The expected grapefruit essence to the nose. Mouthfeel was oily and medium to full bodied. Grapefruit notes in the flavor. Robust. Bitter. Very good.

Strangest IPA ever! I read once people that submit to the Gret American Beer Festival sometime loose because they think their beer is one thing but should have been in another category...anyway. Poured a dirty copper color with tons of large "floaters". Sweet malty aroma. Now here is what is weird...it tastes exactlt like Killians to me with a hoppy IPA aftertaste. Nice head with some good lacing. Sweet malty flavor finishing with hops. Might have liked it more without the IPA label on the bottle. I was expecting something else.

Aroma was overwhelmed by malt. Color was darker brown than most IPA. The hops, full and piney, tend to crowd the leathery malt taste; unbalanced, they call it. Finish is strong and oh so very bitter. A good beer, but one that has been praised a bit too much on this site.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Pours a dark amber with lots of suspended particles and a large, rocky off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy and grapefruity. Taste has strong notes of hops, grapefruit/citrus and pine; very resiny. Some caramel in there too. Good malty sweetness to back up the high alpha hops. Leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste. Very full and creamy on the palate with medium carbonation. Lacing hangs all thoughout the glass in sheets, great head retention. Highly recommended.

hotstuff (4902) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Bottle. Appearance was a small sized creamy and smooth ivory head and fine-large sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. Softly carbonated, hazy and a orange-brown hue. The aroma was malty and hoppy with a bitter and hoppy taste. The mouthfeel was too tingly and hoppy for my taste. The lacing was average.

Decent sized tan head tops this suprisingly brown IPA. Its a bit cloudy, but has nice lacing throughout. The aroma is a suprise because it contains such a nice malt character in addition to piney hop aromas. Its a medium bodied beer with a creamy texture, which I think comes largely from the carmel malt flavor that is unexpected, but quite welcome. The bitterness is led by a spruce hop flavor that balances nicely with the malt presence. Very good beer.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy large sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was a carbonated very dark hazy dark brown color. The aroma is all hops and the mouth feel is tingly from start to finish with a strong hop bite at the start that fades into the finish with time. The flavor is that of piney hops and some mild caramel notes. Actually a pretty good hop head brew and one that satisfied my palate too. Maybe I am finally linking hoppy brews?

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Medium-darker brown body with a thick, frothy white head that doesnt seem to be going anywhere. Strong malt nose but definately not lacking on the hops either. A bit carmely with some citusy fruits. Very fresh. Syrupy sweet carmel malts taste with a good hop kick in the end. Just the slightest alcohol aftertaste and warming. A most excellant IPA!

Amber clear beer with a good full tan head. Good malt and hop aromas that blend well. Good hop bitterness and flavor with some crystal malt to go with it. Great IPA, they did a good job on this one.
