Clear reddish-orange body, nice creamy off-white head with orange hints. Very nice cascadey hop aroma, with some peppery citrus peel edge. First flavor picked up is a bitter and bright / juicy orange hop thing, with just enough sweet malt to keep it balanced. Very good overall... very smooth hop presence reminiscent of 3F Alpha King.

Nice looking beer to look at, again its adarker amber than i am used to in an IPA( is this an eastcoast vs west coast thing?),nice sized off white head, leaves nice lace down the glass.
Nice smooth malty/hoppy aroma, delightful.
This is pretty well balanced, the malts do get a chance to shine in the first half of the mouthful, then a resinous bitter,hoppiness takes over and subsides somewhat at the end.
Nice on the palte, quite smooth.
Very nice drinkable IPA, would have again easily.
Thanks to Jah Noth for this beer!

Smells good. Grapefruit. Tastes OK too. Well rounded beer but I’m pretty drunk. OK pivo (2688) - GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005
TAP: Fresh hop nose, pale amber color. Fruity malt - like grapefruit at times. Low bitter for an IPA, but just enough I guess. The bitter does build on itself through the glass. Refreshing dryness at the end of each sip. Could use more body, but overall decent. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Small white head short lived but with a nice stringy, scattered laceing. Clear amber/copper hued brew. Big, flowery hop nose, citrusy and grainy. Medium body, clean on the palate. Medium sweet malts, light caramel notes, lightly toasty with a nice hop balance, piney, citrusy and fruity. Finish is medium dry, lightly citrusy. Alcohol content is deceiving, ya would,nt know it! A nice enough IPA.

A fine IPA, this has a copper color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. A nice hoppy flavor with a grassy, earthy hint as well as a touch of orange. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Best malt backbone of any IPA we’ve had tonight. Little description b/c it was just plain enjoyable. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Ahhh, the sweet smell of hops. This is a standout example of IPA quality. The color is a slightly hazy amber and a very thin head. The flavor is nice, initially buttery, then hitting you with the hop bitterness we all know and [should] love. I wish I could get this brewery in Ohio. Regardless, damn good stuff.

Draught: Orange color, medium head, leaving laces. Hops nose- grapey. Grape and pine taste, medium carbonation.Long lasting aftertaste. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Many thanks goes out to Mustang3 and his brother Brian for sharing this beauty! Pours a cloudy and opaque yellow body. Head is thin, white, almost non-existant. But that’s ok because the aroma is real nice. Surgary up front, lots of hops here, apricots? Some malt as well. Taste is citrus, apricots, major hops, and sugary malts balance it out nicely. perhaps a little boozey, but no big deal. Finish is bitter, long lasting bite remains. A good example of the style! Thanks kevin and brian!
