You can smell the hops coming at you as you tilt the glass! This is a great beer if you’re a hop-head! Red copper colored beer with an off-white head. The citrus finish really makes me want to pour another. brewrater (92) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2004
If you love hops..... This Devils for you! I prefer a little more balance (like in APA’s) but as far as this style, this is one of the best. Starts out blazing in the IBU department and finishes even stronger. I can get this and will trade for Stone APA! xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2004
On tap. Not bad, but a little too much of the Cascade hops. Has a serious grapefruit finish. rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Very tasty. Not overpoweringly bitter like some IPA’s, but full of hop flavor. A balanced blend of spice and fruit. A bit light-bodied I think. JayBaxter (406) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004

Bottle, got this on a trip to Mass, and was blow away by the amount of hops in this beer. after the shock settled i enjoyed it very much. johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 A personal favorite of mine...wish I could still get it in California! Alcohol is well hidden and the unique hop bitterness is complimented by spicy, fruit flavors. Sweet malt balances against the hops more than most IPAs, also a darker brown color. glider (57) - Shrub Oak, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2004
A unique flavor & finish....very hoppy and most satisfying. Never heard of it, saw it tucked away @ dist’r who said it was great, but he underrated it. What a brew....fruity, hoppy, wierd....but delicious. JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 Amber coloured beer with a thick beige head and sticky lace. Bright pine/spicy aroma. Flavour is quite similar. A bit of sweetness up front with a spicy finish. Some orange and butterscotch. When it’s fresh, the hops are nice and piny with a touch of orange and spice... they can quickly fade to nothing though, so make sure you drink this one fresh.

I must agree. HOPS HOPS HOPS. I have had this in bottle and tap. As usual, tap was much better. Not really a hoppy ale guy but I put down a few of this and enjoyed it!
