Orange color. Very nice aroma, more delicate than other times… roses, lightly fruity (mango…). Weaker body, quite malty but not as much hoppy

Hazy orange / light amber color; generous creamy head; bottle conditioned. Very nice fruity aroma, typical of Cascade hops, and hoppy. Medium body strength, but well structured, not really malty, almost dry. The hop character develops mostly at the end. A great beer, just lacking a better body.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2003
Aromas is pine-scented,with floral highlights. Slightly hazy, straw-like color with a full head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. Very fragrant, zesty-citrus and slightly herbal hop aromas are evident. Also noticeable is a light caramel maltiness and an almost indiscernible fruitiness, but the assertive hop aroma dominates throughout. In fact, that's about all that I could taste. Lots of hops in this one. But also bitter with a somewhat acidic aftertaste. Dry and smooth.

MrJimmy (6) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2003 does not count
An exellent brew.Taste starts of a light malty sweetness and finishes with a moderate hoppy bitterness. Very well balanced and certainly suits my taste. Add a medium/light body and a slightly floral nose and you get a beer with great drinkability.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 30, 2003
Pale amber colour, thin, but creamy and persistent head. Hoppy aroma with some floral hints. The flavour is delicate, malty, quite sweet and spicy, really pleasant. The aftertaste is very hoppy, with a perfect balancement between the sweet and the bitter flavours. Incredibly fresh and pleasant, a beer that will never make me feel bored.

nicely hopped nose with hints of lemon, cloudy orange colour with a small white head, gin-like taste with traces of lemon, sour, hop undertones, dry oily finish

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Either I could smell the hops 2 feet from the glass or I was hallucinating. Nice clear color, long lasting white head. Initial taste is great, but the aftertaste was a bit stale. A little less full-bodied and flavored than I had hoped.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Where to start? Every time I take a drink I am entranced by the amazing bouquet of fruity hops, sweet caramel and flowery nectars. The flavor starts sweet then turns subtly dry with complex flavors so well balanced that no single component overshadows the others. There is fruit, caramel sweetness, malty musk and mildly tantilizing hops. I must sip every drop and ensconce my mouth with each molecule of this intoxicating beverage. Large swallows seem such a waste. Warms all the way down. Not hoppy enough to be an IPA. This brew is true to it's Anchor family in having that unique taste, that hint of something that makes Anchor so original.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2003
An IPA? Come on! This one is a barleywine light, no question. The aroma is sugary sweet, with a floral, malty touch. Hops are present but are spare for this to be a true IPA. Instead, this beer is dominated by sugary malts, and drinks much like Dogfish Head Immort Ale. Not an IPA, but an excellent choice if you're looking for a barleywine without such a high alcohol percentage.

coopec (20) - Portland, Connecticut, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Awesome IPA (although I would like to see a bit more bite in the front) very well round with hoppy bite smoothed by sweet malty middle and another hop kicker towards the end. Great in bottles, Outstanding on Tap (thank you Eli's!)

Braudog (6299) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Poured with great poofy head on top of an orange, golden beer. Nice floral noce. Beautifully rounded, sweet lightly hoppy beer. A bit more bitterness and this would be even more awesome. Outstanding beer.
