Orange brew with flowery and citrusrind style aroma. Very typically american IPA.
Citrus and flowery taste with some butterscotch in the finish.
Close but no cigar. igneous1 (1535) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2002
my bottle had some sediment in it..dont know if that was intended or what...this beer had nice hoppiness offset by a really good bitter flavor. erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 13, 2002
A really nice IPA. Different from alotbecause it doesn’t have an abundance of hops but has a good maltiness to it. I love hops but I can do without in this beer. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - JAN 22, 2002
nice crisp IPA.
smooth and has a good malt base to it.
well hopped but understated compared to other craft IPAs.
bitter hop flavours became more apparent as the beer warmed to room temperature Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2002
Citrusy, buttery, yeasty aroma. Nice cloudy orange colour. The flavour is malty and buttery at first, followed by a spritzy citrus taste. Not the hop explosion that I had expected, but a nice mellow well balanced IPA that still has a quenching hoppiness.

If had three months before the born-on date, this beer rocks. Smooth, colorful, tasty... A great IPA. Bitter, but not overpowering. Fine hops. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2001
Quite tasty. Has a nice, grapefruit-like, citrus flavor, which contributes to a stark bitterness. The ’sweet’ aromatics tend to fade quickly. Overall, a favorable brew (and extremely affordable), but I wish it had a more balanced malt body. But that’s just being picky. groovinhigh (170) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2001
Nice IPA. And it’s a good bit less expensive than most microbrews. P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 4, 2001
Its good, nice malt charecter on a really hoppy ipa. good opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - NOV 30, 2000
Well, if you are a fan of hops, this is your beer. No questions asked. If you don’t know what hops are, drink this beer for an education. WOW...this was hoppy. In a good way, but I love the smell of fresh hops. This beer smelled like I was holding my nose above a bag of fresh hops. A really great beer if you like hops. If you hate hops, please do not drink this beer. Please!
