2003 version

Pours out an amber/copper color with a nice head that stays with you a for little bit. Smell consisted of hops, hops, and more hops. There was some good spiciness to the beer as well. Lots of citrus lay underneath the hops, grapefruit, orange, and some lemon. Taste was hoppy, but as hoppy as the smell which was alright to me. Some good bitterness lingers on the palate for a while. Finishes with some grapefruit/orange flavors and lasts into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was medium with the right amount of carbonation mixing in. Can't wait to get a 6 pack for this upcoming winter. A must have around Christmas time.

A bit on the red side for an IPA, nothing wrong with that.. just different.

Aroma: lots of pine,

Taste: a great balance of hops and malt backbone. pine and slight citrus.

Feel: slightly thick body and mouthfeel.

2003er. Pours an orangy copper color with a beige head. Deep piney, Cascade hop aroma. Some other hop is is there, Warrior or Chinook? Initially sweet on the palate, then moving towards the drier, hoppy side, finishing malty sweet and citrusy again. Pretty darn good for having a twist-off bottlecap.

Served in a pint glass the brew pours an amber color that just looks like fall. A good head is formed when poured down the center of the glass. The nose is malty. The mouthfeel is light but satisfying. Good intergration of both hops and malt with a bit of bitterness on the finish. Certainly not a hops bomb but a very good ale and worthy of purchase.
