Deep turbid amber, creamy white head. Pungent leafy hop nose that was filled with notes of pine, florals, cedar, and hints of grapefruit zest. Intense Southern California hop bitterness with fresh piney florals bursting forth. Slight hints of faint biscuity pale malt sit subdued under the hop blast. Not even close to balanced, but works very well none the less. Very Green Flash IPA-like in its nature. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, Sahara-dry finish. A cant miss for your hop fix

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Pours coppery with a white head. Smells of aromatic hops and some breaddt elements. Taste reminds me of a West Coast IPA with some of the piney notes. Decent maltiness behind the big hoppy flavor.

argo0 (14124) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Clear mahogany body with tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, orange/floral, some chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, orange/floral, some caramel, light chocolate. Watery medium body. Equivalent to a West Coast APA, but nice nonetheless.

Cottrell (72) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2005
I got the first pour, so it was a bit muddy, and very, very fresh. Had a great long lasting soapy head, left great lacing too. Strong aroma, pungent citric fruits, oranges, grapefruits, pine needle sweetness, and some underlying caramel sweetness. Flavor starts with some citric sweetness, light toffee, some breadiness, then a hop attack ensues, pine needles, orange rinds, grapefruits, and some grassiness come in at mid palate in full force, finishing with a sharp bitterness and a dry finish. Wonderful beer, very, very drinkable. Just cant go wrong with a Willibrew IPA...

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Has a clouded orange color with no carbonation and a grapefruit smell. Taste is very fruity/hopped and finishes with a great hop bitterness. Overall a very interesting IPA, not something I could drink regularly, but still good.
