SILVER METAL 2000 Great American Beer Festival! Big, bold hop flavors define this wonderful India Pale Ale. This is a stronger, hoppier version of a regular pale ale. Loads of Columbus, Cascade, Willamette and Centennial hops are used in this beer that would please any hop-head!

Faint aroma, rapidly thinning head. The more I try it and the more it warms in the glass the better it gets. Its nice and bitter and balanced . A solid session beer.

J_man (974) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
Strangely, the nose on this IPA is more malt than hops. Really nicely balanced with the citrusy hops not overpowering the biscuity mait body. Ends up with a nice astringency on the tongue. Nice copper color with a white, long lasting head. Really good, refreshing IPA.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Sampled in a 22oz bottle. Pours light brownish yellow. Big head that quickly goes down. Drink is smooth and aroma is mildly hopped but still very nice. Good brew.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2010
On tap. Must have been a REALLY old keg as this was faded! Pours with a white head and a clear golden body. Aroma is herbal, citrus and light caramel. Taste is faded, old and WAY TOO SWEET. Has to be old. This is on tap, but where are the hops? Malt tea! Light bubbles, malty, bubbly.

blipp (8773) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Citric, almost soapy hop aroma. The flavor has floral and citric hop notes with some pale malts. Not awful.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bomber. Poured clear brighter golden with a towering cap of sticky white head. The aroma picked up dusty earth and powdered lemon zest over soft bready maltage.. not bad, but there didnt seem to be a whole lot going on. The flavor found bready and pale malts at the core.. lemon, pine, and floral bitterness around.. finished with tangy lemon and a touch of peppery alcohol. Light-medium bodied with a lot of carbonation on the palate.. not a great flow.. this wasnt bad, but was a bit of a weak effort.

2009-10-22, bottle from Magnums, Phoenix, AZ, 7-3-7-4-14=35
Cloudy deep blond color; small creamy head. Fruity hop aroma, oranges, a bit flowery; apples too. Rich toffee flavor, medium bodied; strong hopping, partially fruity and boldly resiny; the final is strong, tannic and resiny. Bold sample.

2009-10-14, draught at the brewpub, Scottsdale, AZ, 6-3-6-4-13=32
Cloudy blond color. The aroma is lightly fruity (pineapple). Average body strength, strong caramel and toffee flavor, very strong bitterness, with some hop oils but just light fruits. Its not a bad beer, but of all the IPAs is one of the more basic.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Pours hazy yellow to light orange. Thick, creamy head. Nose is lemon/orange, bright citrus. On the palate is a rather dry, cotton mouth acidity that has a suggestion of chalk. Body is medium, perhaps deceivingly more creamy than the body really is, but the dryness steals the show. Finish is more hops & chalk.

Sledutah (7322) - Utah, USA - DEC 5, 2009
22oz bottle:
Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a white head and some lace
Aroma: Citrus and pine hops
Taste: Hops are the first thing to hit your tongue, they mellow out and finishes with a sweet malt.
Well balanced between hops and malt.
