Draft at the brewpub. Crisp amber body with a creamy white head. Solid hoppy aroma - resiny with light pine and citrus notes (7+). Chewy resiny hops, light citrus comes out but it is mostly resin from the hops. Light supportive caramel malt. Very hop forward flavour. (7+) Average palate. Hops linger in the after taste. This definitely hit the spot after a long drive from Toronto. Very nice IPA. b33r (875) - Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Draught at 69 Taps in Akron. Nice orange-amber color with medium head and lacing. Aroma is hoppy. Flavor has extreme hops, very strong and a bit bitter. Sweet and citric with a lot of grapefruit. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2007
Poured from a growler purchased the night before. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a minimal head, but good lacing. Nice strong citrus aroma, and strong hop flavor. A very tasty beverage, now if only they would bottle. TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Nice copper pour with a thin white-ish head. Aroma is deep and hoppy, with some sweet pine nut overtones. Flavor is nice and hoppy, there are pine and grapefruit flavors throughout. Finish is slow and sweet-ish. Carbonation is on the low side, which is a plus in my book. Good IPA. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Growler. Girls’ sister and brother in law, brought back from a recent trip, and man what a fine choice they made. One of the better ipa’s I’ve ever had. Nice choice for name, considering it’s a hop "bomb". Amber with minimal white head. Huge sweet resin aroma. Pineapple, orange and grapefruit. Hard to pick up any malt. Flavor again all kinds of sweet fruit esters/resin. Pineapple and grapefruit dominate. Residuel sweetness through the middle to balance. Grapefruit bite in finish, leaves you wanting more. Carbonation lacks, oily mouthfeel, but it is about 24 hrs old. Very well done!!!

Growler: Courtesy of Styles. The aroma is huge with lots of grapefruit and pineapple. It pours transparent amber with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The flavor starts with lots of pineapple and tropical fruits. The fruity sweetness balances very weill with the big grapefruit hops finish. This is excellent and very underrated in my opinion. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Smells like an IPA. Very fruity, with a bit of pine. Quite bitter. I expect that the IBU’s are off the chart. Not much body to balance the bitterness. With some more body, it could be a good double/imperial IPA. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Very light brown pour w/ a white head. Fresh cut grass aroma touches of citrus and pine w/ some carmel.. THIS STUFF SMELLS AMAZING. Oily well coated palate. a nice bitter grapefruit and pine taste w/ a slightly sweet finish. Very good ipa. aracauna (3636) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Dark copper with a good head. Courants and grapefruit. Not a lot of malt to back up the hops, but the hops have an interesting complexity to them that keeps this beer from being too boring of an IPA. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2005
This dark copper ipa had mostly one thing going for it - an abundance of hops - not that they were the best hops, but there was plenty there for your tongue to choose from. Aroma was not much (as has always been the cases at this brewpub). Not very much malt at all. Taste started off with a citrus hop at the front, then some sweet on the center of the tongue, then pretty much nothing but some lingering bitterness. I mean, I like hop juice, but this really needs some malt to help it out.
