Bottle. A little hazy amber in colour. Pretty thick off-white head. Aroma is floral from the hops. Taste is very hoppy and a very bitter aftertaste. Visit the brewery this summer and wish i could get hold of more of this beer. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2006
Bottle courtesy of wohlfs. Hazy copper/amber in color, nice frothy off-white head fades to thick film quickly.
Very sweet aroma up front, combination of fruit (orange, apple and faint grapefruit), with tons of caramel malt. Flavor is again tons of caramel malt up front, with some orange zest and faint grapefruit towards the finish. Turns to a very harsh, citric bitterness, not it a good way. Finish really kills the score for me. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2006
22oz bottle via trade with kenb! - thanks Ken! - Pours amber with a pretty good sized rocky offhwhite head that stays well and laces the side of the shaker that I served it in. Aromas of pineapple, orange, and a little grapefruit. Flavor is a blast of bitter grapefruit type hops with a touch of pineapple there too over biscuit malts. Almost puckeringly bitter on the finish. Some grainy malt can be found underneath. Medium body and a little unbalanced to the hop side for my liking and seems a tad on the overcarbonated side and I think that takes away a bit of the flavor. Not bad though. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 12, 2007

Bottle: Courtesy of wolhfs. Very malty. Lots of peach and citrus in the aroma. Hops are present in the aroma but for the most part are dominated by the sweetness and malt. Pours a hazy reddish-orange with an off-white head. Decent lacing. Some sediment. Mlaty up front with a moderate hop finish that builds into a huge floral/pine hop aftertaste that lingers for quite some time. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 22 oz bottle. Clear amber color. Very large bubbly head that sticks around and leaves a lot of lace. Not much smell, perhaps some sour lemon. Very well-done hoppy taste, but bitter. Medium body.
Balanced finish that lingers just the right amount of time, but is a bit too bitter for my liking. For those who like extremley hopped IPA’s this is a good one for you. MartinT (9851) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Any first impressions?philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
-Bloated foam bobs and laces atop the luminous yet hazy orange.
-Aroma is disappointingly vague and lacks definition, offering old citrus fruit and faint wooden shavings.
-Leafy, green hoppiness provides ample flavor and bitterness, but doesn’t benefit from much malty support.
-The overdone, frothy carbonation dominates the shy maltiness.
What if you dig deeper?
-Flowery honey appears in the aroma after a while.
-Pine needles prick the tongue, and succeed in lightly numbing the lips after a few tries.
-Complexity levels are very low, perhaps hidden by the excessive carbonation.
-If you were attracted by the excited tackiness of their slogan ("Excessively extreme!"), you may be satisfied by its bitter intensity (for a regular IPA), but you might be let down by its overall simplicity.
