Originally sampled on 1 February 2003. This is a nice looking pour. It has a cloudy orange color w/ fluffy medium head. Lots of citrus, mainly grapefruit hops are on the tongue. It is a very refreshing beer to drink. This is a very nice IPA and I hope to see it available locally sometime

Cloudy copper, with a white airy head that clings to the sides of the glass as it fades. In addition to big more-citric-less-piney-hops-than-stuff-like-Stone hops, a slight fruitiness is in the aroma. The big hops don't cover a nice toasty malt and mild fruitiness that makes this a bit more than a hop monster. If they took the India out of this, it'd still be a nice beer.
