UPDATED: OCT 31, 2004 Hazy gold, big head, tiny bead carb. Lots of lace. Mild sweet hops burnt sugar/caramel bitter. Round. Piney and floral. Grapefruit with some pith. A good IPA, not relying soley on the hops for bitterness. Carries a citric finish.

Definitely the first IPA that I ever had. I didn't have a clue that it was an IPA at the time, or what an IPA was. Still up there among my old reliable favorite beers, never disappoints.

First IPA I've tried (I think)...Anyway. Slightly hazy gold yellow, a normal sized head with regular lacing. Quite citrusy and zingy smelling, with some smooth honey-butterscotchy malt smells too. Smooth feel in the mouth, some crispness on the tongue, more malt, an undertone of sweetness, and more tangy hops. Bitter and sort of tart finish. Tongue smacking resulted. Good intro to this style.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy light amber color with a medium, foamy and quite thick, lacy head. Very aromatic-hoppy and pleasant, rosé talc-powdery, flowery aroma with grass and lemon. Flowery-lemony-hoppy, very aromatic, slightly sweetish-malty flavor with a long, lingering, dry and bitter finish. No alcohol present at any time. Medium-bodied, well-balanced and refreshing palate with pretty high, but balanced carbonation. A beautifully and strongly hoppy, yet still excellently drinkable and balanced ale.

Had this on tap, and the aroma was definitely hoppy, and had a glue aroma too. Very strange. Flavor wise it had a nice hop bite up front but smoothed out caramel on the way down. I liked it, even though it smelled odd.

Tangy hoppy presence. Subtle malt characteristics. Smooth and easy to put down. Well done all the way around.

Very good heavy hop aroma, with a slightly piney aroma. Poured with anaverage but rocky head. The head was white with excellent lacing that lasted for some time. Clear with an amber color but it had small particles that come from being an older beer. Flavor was a nice med hop that had a moderate bitter finish that lasted for some time. Med ium body that had a slight astringent finish. This beer was old and I'd love to try a fresh version!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2004 One of my favorite everyday IPA's. Best on tap. This one seems to vary in its hop content. Goes from good amount to slap your grandmother hops from time to time. This surprises me coming from Anchor. Nice tartness, good finishing hops. Always a strong grapefruit tangy aftertaste. If Anchor only made this one, they'd still be legendary.

Nice head and lace. Golden body. Delisciously hoppy, well rounded, soft, smooth.

On Tap: Not a ton of aroma, hints of hops, good bright copper color with lite off white head. Nice balace between the malt and the hop, but I was looking for that super hop to take control. Nice cream clean finish to a well made big bottled IPA.
