The aroma is very hoppy. It has a clean bitter start with sweet notes. Quite hoppy brew. Some caramel finish. Very nice.

Light copper color with a nice bubbly tan head. Aromas of caramel and hops. Alcohol is the first thing I tasted then caramel malts. Very nice.

I have found this beer to vary slightly over several purchases. I bought a case for the holidays this year - not cheap, but a self treat. The aroma is fantastic. The appearance is first rate. The flavor is slightly down a notch only due to an astringency. Still rates in my top 5 IPA's.

SpringsLicker (3480) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 A great aroma comes off a creamy off-white head that slowly snakes down the sides of the glass. There is a slight astringent note that seems to follow the hops bitterness that detracts slightly, and is perhaps the only fault in an otherwise excellent IPA.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Mildly pine and candy aroma. Pours cloudy orange red with a nice tan head. Flavor is somewhat sweet for an IPA with strong hints of spices...maybe ginger? Very bitter and dry finish. A nice IPA, but in my opinion not to the level everyone is rating it at. Especially considering the price! None the less, a good IPA, but not to the level of Stone.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Bottle. Copper color with a large, creamy head that lasts well. Aroma of delicious caramel malts and assertive hops - grapefruit and pine. Nicely balanced, sweet malty backbone, big hop flavor and spicy finish. Medium body with perky carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 Nice ruby color. Aroma is Hops, slight malt, slightly fruity. Starts out quite bitter with a peppery? undertone. Smoothes out to a nice dry hoppy finish. really pleasant brew especially if you Love Em Hoppy!
