UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 I was disappointed with the Steam Beer, so I was anxious to try this one. It is my 100th beer. Very minimal white head, hazy orange body. Aroma is piney, somewhat lemony, and faint. Flavor is very sweet and malty, but balanced by a hoppy bitterness that lasts through the finish. Solid beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2003
A light energetic head with a bright golden body. Strong hoppy aroma with a slight floral (rose) notes emerging with a slight tingle on the tongue. I found it slightly acidic…try to be bitter. Nice though.

Smells strangely like malts for a so-called IPA - not much hops really either - in the flavor or in the aroma. A bit of a skunky finish like a pilsner. Golden color, quickly fading head. More like a semi-flavorful lager.

notalush (4763) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pleasant appearance - pale gold with a thin layer of white foam on top - some alcohol can be detected in the aroma (odd for a beer of this alcohol content) - pleasant cascade hops in the flavor, but the hop character is more like that of a regular pale ale - not much else going on in the flavor - slighty graininess - nominal malt presence - generally thin bodied, light for an IPA - this is like a "lawnmower beer" for hop heads.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2005 Nice golden amber. Good white head. Mild hops aroma. It is not an overly hopped IPA, but rather is very balanced (but definately more hops than Anchor Steam).

HighlanderOne (984) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Poured from bottle 1/2008 re-rate. Malt and wood in the aroma. Medium amber, thin head with lacing. Like a blend of a pale ale with a good American ale. Not bad - has nice roasted malt flavor along with the hops. Almost a smoky flavor to it. Good feel and mellow finish. Still a good choice.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
A rich golden color with a medium sized rocky white head. A grapefruit aroma with some hops and lemon zest. Hops right up front with a maltiness and spice. Nice flavor but nothing outstanding. Solid.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
Burnt orange color with a frothy white head. Smell hops and grapefruit. Taste hoppy with some carmel and spices. Smooth and somewhat drying palate.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2003 Great beer but I want to comeback and recomment after I refresh my tastebuds--6/29/03-Ok, my taste buds refreshed. This beer kicks ass! I really don’t think this is the typical IPA, this beer is a bit cloudier, not nearly as bitter, and offers a fruity aroma and taste. The hopps are just not there like the typical IPA. Overall, easy enjoyable topnotch ale, Highly recommended.

I originally had this beer about 7 years ago and was not impressed. Either the beer or my beer palate has improved. Wow! This is one tasty brew! Beautifully hoppy, perfect aroma. Lots of carbonation is visible in the body which spawns a large, white, rocky, creamy head. Body is amber orange in color. Nice flavor; similar to Minneapolis Town Hall's Single Malt Ale, but less sweet and cloying. Light to moderate bitterness; more bitter than Anchor steam. A little surprised to learn this is an IPA and it should delight both hop-heads and non, alike. Good session beer.
