Clear copper. Bitter is just right; smells of moderately sweet hops, pineapple, and peaches. Taste doesn't deviate much from the aromas, and it turns out to be a very enjoyed IPA. I was suprised it was done so well by Pyramid.

Panzuriel (2238) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2003
Nice golden color with a good head. Nice but very strong hop aroma. Somewhat heavy hoppy with acidic flavor leading. Dry finish.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 This beer has too many hops for my tastes. Really turned me off in the flavor department. Rerate: It has been 3 years since I last had this, and I actually enjoy this beer now. It is a very drinkable IPA, but it does have an agressive taste that does not get old.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2003
Honey-gold colour with slight haze and a small white head. Strong and cloying hop aroma with heavy grapefruit notes. Flavour is quite astrigent, with a dry citric bitterness overpowering anything else that might be in there.

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2003
Appealing light cloudy appearance. Nice mild hoppy smell. Strong taste compared to smell. Pretty good but not great IPA. Some hops but not enough for me. Still a good beer.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Very citrusy. There is a strong hop aroma, Columbus? Very good beer, but you must not try and drink it too cold. It is a little astringent and a bit over carbonated when cold. It is well balanced at normal serving temps.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Strong grapefruit aroma, cloudy and citrusy with a nice fruity head. Kind of a weak flavor at first. Almost a chalky aftertaste. This is not one of my favorites.

Nice IPA... good NW hop character, but not very complex like the best IPA's. I gave a few extra points for the alc. content.

Well, mixed emotions. on one hand I like the "in your face" bitter kick of this one on the other hand I didn't like the malty sweetness. Still good though!
