Poursa cloudy orange hue with a halo of a white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and a little dough. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Flavors......the water of this brewery is definitely off...... dirty laudry with a an orange tainted tinge. A weird finish that starts semi-sweet then quickly dries out the tongue. mmmmmmm....

Appearance dings for the lame label and the screw-off, but a good orange-brown PA coloring with a blotchy film head. The aroma says "ham-handed Cascades hops." Dry, a bit grassy, with good acid balance, and with hopping which is not nearly as clumsy as the aroma would suggest. Finishes a bit woody/nutty, with a medium-long hop aftertaste. Body goes watery, and I wanted a little more fizz. Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Poured an amber color with a small head. Heavy piney hop aroma with a nice malty addition. Light to medium mouthfeel with a malty beginning and a piney/citrus hoppy finish. Very smooth.. Nice IPA jtxx (149) - san antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Saint Arnold best beer. Dark yellow to golden look with much hops. Nice lacing, well worth buying again. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2005

Thanks to fly for sending 2 of these. Pours dark straw with medium white head. Aroma of floral hops, malt, slight peach and apricot. Tastes very hoppy, with a definite fruity element, finishing with more floral peppery hints. Nice balance and complexity. I can’t wait to open the other one. duff (5485) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 Bottle, thanks joet. Hoppy nose, aromatic American hops. Lychee, pine, citrus in both nose and flavour. Starts of with a gentle hop sweetness, and finishes dry, with a gentle bitterness, nice, easy drinking IPA. Joeh (2050) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 Bottle at Chris’ brought by joet. Aroma is floral hops and a touch of fruit. Hops and flowers in the aroma, fairly balanced although a little dry. A nice example of an American IPA. maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A light amber coloured beer with a hoppy peachy aroma. The beer itself does not taste as hoppy as expected but instead comes across with a bit of Belgian richness. It is fruity and very dry.

The Kilburn Gathering. Soft cascade aroma - dark heavy oily cascade in flavour. Mostly not nice.
