Exquisite aroma, but flavour didn't live up. Dry and bitter to be sure, but kind of one-dimensional for a brewery that delivers such wonderful subtlety in its other beers. kenk99 (168) - Leonia, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2000

An IPA that would be tough to beat. Almost the perfect representation of the style. Although this beer is absolutely brimming over with hops from all directions, it is extremely well balanced with the rich, toasty malts. Assertive hop bitterness, lots of citrus flavors and a floral hop nose that you can't get enough of. Highly recommended!! PhillyBeer2112 (2903) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2000
Its a classic. Firm hop flavors
make up this IPA - its no wimp.
It has that nice floral aroma that
many of the good hoppy beers have, but
also that hint of a metallic bitterness.
