22 oz bomber-pours a dark orange hue almost amber with decent lacing and small white head. Wide boquet of floral hops and a touch of vanilla. creamy citrus flavors, especially when cold and has better balance cold. when warm, the piney finish really tingles the tongue. Long citrus finish. Definately a solid IIPA, but not a top contender in the class. Just another one to add to my list of fav style. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2004

Intense armoatic hops in the nose, sweet intense hops, pine, grapefruit. Fairly well balanced, but intense.
Poured with a 3 finger brown head. Hazy, dark reddish-brown in color. Smells of pine (main smell), citris, wood, and light malts. Starts of sweet and ends with a nice hoppy bitter taste. Dry and spicy finish. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Copper body with a huge colony of small particles and a cottony white head. Nice nose of brown sugar and earthy and woody hops. Flavor has some cardboard and big hops. Malts are present but mostly buried by bitter hops. Titillating as a hop fix. However, this is an IPA with double hop character but the malts fail to completely catch up. omhper (24968) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2004
Bottled, thanks hopsrus!

Cloudy amber, rich airy head. Citric grapefruit aroma. Sweet and malty, sugary and hoppy. Powerful with saccharine sweet and bitter finish.
Pours light copper colored with a thick light tan head. Big, huge hoppy, resiny aroma. Sticky. Grassy flavor, big hops. Nice malt, hop balance. Finishes sweet with a hop bite at the end. Very nice and quite powerful. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2004
Orange, redbrown with very little head.
Spicy aroma with tones of citrus, pinetrees and soil.
Citrushoppy flavor with tones of malt, chocolate and spices. Huge bitterness. Dry finish.
Everything from the absolutely marvelous colour trough the creative hopping ( not only Cascade, big plus)
to the finishing expresstrain-bitterness feels right about this one. Me liiki, me liiki a lot. mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 8, 2004
22oz bomber from berkeley bowl... Has an aroma like the dank nugs.. no lie..The head is milky white, but small..Light to medium brown color...Really hoppy brew, with excellent citrusy lacing that makes your tastes buds perk up..Nice foaming lacing around the measuring cup we're using. The finish leaves you with a heavy mouthfeel. almost metallically.. very well rounded and good overall. Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2004
To be honest, I really think I had a bad bottle of this. It poured a dark cloudy orange with yeast in the glass and a thin white head. The flavor was a bit acidic and the hops made a stale taste in the mouth. I will have to re-rate this when I am provided with a fresher sample.

Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. Bold assertive hoppy and caramel malty aroma. Body starts sweet and very hoppy with nice balance and a powerfully bitter, semi-dry finish. A little too bitter, but a nice double IPA.
