golden amber, nice white head, herbal, floral nose, nice hoppy flavor, little malt, potent bitter finish Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2006 Light clear orange with a good sized white head, rich pine aroma, deep hard-hitting bitterness that stays around long after the sip is gone. This is surprising as at first the beer doesn’t taste very bitter. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Pours a golden yellow color with a very fluffy head. The aroma is starkly floral. Crisp hop flavor with a nice citric twang. Enough sweet malts to keep this honest. This beer is not incredible, mind you. But it is a nice hoppy brew. PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2004
other just ok IPA, hoppy,and somewhat medium, compared to others, not much can be said for this bland swill MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2004
Very well balanced. Quite complex in both aroma and flavor. The bitterness and the sweetness interact nicely. Still quite powerful. Well as a late night brew.

On tap at the Hopland Brewing Co. It had a golden color with a moderate hoppy flavor. frankR (148) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Hopey flavor and aroma as expected. Nothing stands out to seperate its self from the field. Pine is the most noticable flavour. Compared to Stone, this is a disappointment. Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Tastes musty. Definately not Stone. It's one of those muddy non-descript beers. Very average. leaparsons (10764) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Clody orange in colour and mine had no head. Aroma is sweet honey with pine needles. Flavours are mild pine and smooth rather than overly bitter. Spicy and decent but I was disappointed. drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Very citrusy hops with a grassy finish - a bit linear, but tasty regardless. The best IPAs - regardless of IBU - tend to have at least enough malt to compensate a bit for the hop flowers, but this was missing it for sure.
