12-oz bottle, bottled 062705. Pours orange to light copper with a thin white head that quickly becomes a patchy white film on top and near the edge. Fragrant floral sweet perfumey hop aroma with grassy notes and fruit (peach, pear, and orange) nose and lightly roasted malt (grain). Bitter floral hop sweet yet acidic then becomes dry and astringent with a citrusy rind end. Medium bodied dry and fizzy palate. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2003
(Bottle) Light cloudy yellow IPA pours with a thin white head. Good refreshing light taste. Dogbrick (12906) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours clear amber with a thin white head that has decent retention. Thin, spotty lacing. Mellow aroma of hops and spice. Light-bodied with a mildly floral hops character. Light spices and malt are present too. The finish is not very bitter and it is on the dry side. Passable IPA that doesn’t bother much being interesting. Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottle. Sweet orange and hops aroma. Yellow amber color with small head. Blended lightly sweet orange and moderate hops. Finish could be stronger. This was my first IPA - sometime back in 95 - obviously much more impressive with an immature palate. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Had this at the brewery. Again its a decent beer, just not my favorite style. Kind of watery and maybe a tad too much carbonation. Wouldnt drink it again usually. hopscotch (11042) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Hazy, orange ale. Small, creamy, off white head.
Yeasty, alcoholic and floral nose with some hints of orange.
The flavor is malty and rich. Very well-hopped; citrusy and moderately bitter.
Medium-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, clean finish. English IPA. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

cloudy dark yellow, solid lace, nice fine off white head, big sweet carmel malt flavor with lots of hops, long mild bitter finish, fades
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Pours dark straw toward copper with off-white head. Nose is hoppy, resiny, with caramel malt. Tastes hoppy, resiny, malt-lacking, and not terribly complex or interesting. Not a horrible IPA, but among the high end of the lower tier, in my estimation.
