Pours copper with decent white head, fades fast. Great citrus/floral hop aroma. All downhill from there. Flavor seems a little off, decent malt character but something is just sour, I quess. whatever it is itís not enjoyable. IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Aroma is very hoppy,with slightly sweet tones to it and a bit of malt and yeast. Not sure of the color it pours because drank it straight from the bottle. Carbonation is well-done, as it keeps throughout the whole bottle without being over-carbonated. Not as strongly-hopped as the other IPAís that I have had, but a fairly well-balanced beer that is excellent for those who want a beer with a good measure of flavor, but donít want t drink a beer that tastes like liquid hops. After the initial punch of hops, it fades a bit, with a slightly swet/sour note that is itís only fault. Good brew. tennisjoel (1446) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2005
On tap at Lefty Oídouls in Frisco. Floral citrus aroma and taste. Flavor is accented with hints of grapefruit. Color is cloudy golden. Big hops all around, up front and big hoppy bite on the back end. Very good. BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Light copper, nice lacing, nice head. Nose of earthy citrus malts, some good balanced flavors. A bit of waxy yeast. Chalky tail. piscator34 (2508) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
Deep gold in colour with medium carbonation. Good head retention and nice lacing. Aromas are of strong grapefruity C-hops with some more woody hops in the background. Flavor wise, itís almost all hops again with the malt character taking a back seat. Thereís a bit of mid-palate hollowness to this one, but not quite as much as their Prohibition Ale. The thinner body almost works with the slightly higher carbonation level. Great bitterness level to this one, and a clean finish is there (as advertized). Itís nice to finally have a real IPA back on the shelves in Manitoba again!

Had on tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival - Decent brewpub IPA. Light copper appearance, decent off-white head. Fresh, light, sprucey aroma. Has the expected citrusy hops with a slight malty back end. Mouthfeel decent, not stinging. sleepdirt (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 18, 2005
Excellent IPA. Clean pour with a little head. Nice citrus head and moderate hop character. IndianaRed (4544) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light orange amber with very nice fluffy bright white head. Delicious sweet citrusy, orange and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Flavor was more of the bitterness than I expected. Fairly sharp and woody hop character with the pale fairly sweet grains a bit pushed down. Late grassy pulpy aftertaste with plain bitterness after that. Still a ince example of the style. Glad I picked this up. blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a large frothy white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma and flavour of fresh hops and grapefruit. Very pleasant, dry bitter finish. This is a delicious IPA -- Speakeasy are two for two with me. I look forward to getting this again. b7j0c (10) - USA - SEP 2, 2005
one of my absolute favorite beers. its quite clear to me that i know less about beer than most posters here, but even a neophyte like me could catch the big whiff of hops in this beer. great finish, one of my favorite IPAs.
