UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Gold with red hints. Smells of citrus, lavender and a bit of sulfur. Very hoppy in flavor, with white grapefruit and some white grape flavors. Not much malt flavor at all. Good carbonation helps to give it a nice refreshing quality. Hides the alcohol very well. Long finish. I would definitely buy this again.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Hazy gold. Good nose, sweet with caramel malts and a lingering citrus hoppiness. Bit thin on the flavor, definite bready malts predominate, bit of a bite and the end from hops, but lacks a middle end, drops off into something a bit too watery. Aftertaste is pleasant enough and lingers. Creamy as well.

maeib (8729) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 Bottled. Orange coloured with virtually no head. The aroma and flavour are both mildly spicy. An excellent moreish beer which belies its strength. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Score unchanged

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
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.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 17, 2004
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.
