This is some good stuff heya! A dark amber color with a large head. A very hoppy and complex flavor. A perfume, caramel, and orange aroma. The flavor is caramel, orange, and pine. Bite you in the ass hopped up flavor. Extremely good!

Poured a deep amber with a good sized light tan head and sticky lace. A little light on the aroma, but it was piney and floral with a touch of fruit. Decent, resiny flavor up front, grapefruit, with a nice flowery bouquet and good malt balance. The kick starts near the middle and finishes sharp with a solid hop bite. Nice medium bodied brew. Good carbonation. Not a bad offering but still not up to some of the others. Good for the money.

billk (353) - Coeur dAlene, Idaho, USA - APR 20, 2005
Tap @ Capones in C dA. Not clear amber/copper, decent carb, off white head was good sized and held up well, good lace that dried to a very thin vail on the glass. Aroma is malty, grapefruity, & a bit sour. Hop aroma was lacking herbal pizzaz or freshness. Flavor is rather sweet & also sour, med roasted malt with good hop bitterness ( but not enough fresh hop flavor) & grapefruit. Well into med bodied. This beer tasted somewhat homogenized & a bit cooked to me. Like a double Bridgeport IPA. Was nice but not what I seek in an IPA.

Beautiful, cloudy, orange/copper in color. Head is thin and creamy, and fades down with nice lacing, becoming somewhat of a wispy overlay. Aroma is damn good - nice hoppy bouquet with elements of maple and honey. Smells of corn fritters from the unfiltered wheat, and then some traces of buttery peas. Flavor has strong tropical fruity esters, predominantly mango and grapefruit. Full-bodied and heavier than expected, which is always a nice surprise. Heavy malt backbone helps balance the heaping of hops. Finish is sweet and warming. Damn refreshing. Thanks to tpkenned for this birthday treat!

12 oz bottle. A fairly bitter IPA with a generous head and lace. Nothing particularly special about it, although flavor was a good balance between maltiness and hops. Surprised to see an average 3.88 score and 96th percentile. I would have guessed fairly lower scores.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2005
Hazy amber body, big, pillowy tan head. Aroma moderately hoppy and sweet, some butteriness and yeast as well. Flavor is robust and hoppy, perfect mix of hops and malt. Mouthfeel extremely full and satisfying. Awesome IPA.

I like this one. It has a very nice hoppy aroma and huge creamy white head which sticks around for a little while. It is more than a traditional IPA in that it has a deep smokey malt flavour that isnt usually there. A great cloudy amber colour works well with the deep flavour. Lots of hops present, but thats just fine with me.

redave (166) - squaw valley, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Very Malty especially for an (alleged IPA) While I can taste the hops, malt is there in the background. Too dark for an IPA as well. After taste is malty as well. However, this is still a drinkable ale. Just mislabeled. I may have to try this again, just to make sure I didnt get a bad batch.

draft. pours a beautiful orange-copper-haze with a big thick foamy and well lacing white head. From the looks of things...a very nice beer, great hoppy piney fruity aroma. Initial sweet apricot yeasty malt following with a nice complex hop finish...really good! I wanted it again the next night but my local had run out.
