A good example of what IPA's have become in their homeland. Needs more hops to be a good IPA. Having said that, this was a good beer in it's own right. Retired Eh?? No wonder I haven't seen it in a while ;-)

Hazy copper hue and quickly diminishing head. Aroma hinted of ripe pears and tangerines, caramel, wood and earthy hops. Fruity and lighty sweet taste. Grassy and metallic undertones. Mildly bitter finish. Rather bland beer froma brewery I respect and enjoy. Disappointing.

Muddy copper. Frothy light tan head. Very sweet aroma of caramel, butterscotch & licorice w/ a light fruitiness (no discernible hops). Thick, syrupy feel. Very sweet flavour again of caramel, butterscotch & licorice. Mild astringency. Peppery, earthy, bitter finish (but much of the bitterness seems to come from the alcohol). Somewhat harsh and unbalanced.

color is like an amber or copper with a hint of orange there. aroma is slightly hoppy with fruity and leather notes. aroma is slightly promising, but the flavor kills it. slight earthy bitterness, but other than that, there isnt much there. quite disappointing. a notch below burton bridge. iíve yet to find an IPA from the UK that is outstanding...iím open to suggestions.

I canít really put a finger on this brewery...where are they coming from, who drinks their beers, etc? For some reason they make me think of Felinfoel, although I am not sure why. This beer is ok, could be better, could be worse. Sort of bland for an IPA though.

I had the misfortune of purchasing a 6 pack of this beer that is/was well past its prime. As it warms up I taste glimpses of the beer this was at one point.

Brent (116) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - SEP 27, 2001
Well hopped, consistent with the style, but the hops were pretty monotone. Not an impressive example of an IPA.

Great flavor, even better aftertaste, and perfect carbonation.
