Served on handpump. Fisherman’s wharf San Francisco. Goregous hop flavor all the way through this beer. Attractive biscuity and bready maltiness, and a finish with that great real ale mouthfeel. Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2004
moderately hoppy aroma, clear golden color, very nice rich malty and hoppy taste. Moderate to high bitterness ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Burlingame. Fruity aroma. Hops really not detectable in the nose. Creamy, off-white head. A little faint visible carbonation. Good lace. Nice peppery body. Discernably hoppier than the Pale ale. Very similar to the White Dog PA, but just hoppier. I also had the cask version but my taste buds were too burnt out to rate it. It was smoother, creamier and good, though I preferred the standard. cole45 (21) - USA - JAN 15, 2007
Had this as part of an 8 beer flight. This was my favorite of the beers in the flight. Relative to other IPAs I’ve had, I thought this was pretty good. The description I read was dead-on - "lots of malt flavors, intense hop finish" duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2004

Loved this stuff, Once again really well, made, textbook IPA. Massive sweet lychee flavour. Pine and grapefruit, as is alwasy the case with USIPA’s. Little creatures pale ale kept coming to mind while having this, real tasty stuff.
Sampled draught at Steelhead Brewing, EugeneAleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Copper color, sticky head. Nose of hop resin, something horizon or Amarillo like, pale malt & dry alcohol. Nice plum feeling in the mouth and a clean finish.
Brilliant IPA here. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a medium head. Leaves plenty of lacework on the glass. Flavors are potent of citrus and berries. Flavor is slightly sweet but not cloying. Finish is very smooth and bitter. Excellent. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 10, 2004
on tap at steelhead. pale amber, full grapefruit and orange mango cordial aroma. quite full with some orange rind and a nice bitter finish Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Amber with a light creamy head and stringy lace. Fresh hop aromas. Bitter, floral, piney with lemon and orange citrus notes. Bitter again in the flavor with citrus, melons perhaps. Malts back it up well. Creamy mouth feel with a bitter hop filled finish

On tap at Venti’s in Salem OR.
Nice enough looking beer, typical orange/brown with a small off white head.
Good oiney,lemony aromas, very fresh.
Great refreshing taste of floral hops mixed with lemon zest, seems to have a nice malt backbone also.
Nice enough on the palate, went down well anyway.
