This beer poured an invigorating white glass full of foam that mostly diminished. The head consisted of fine-large sized bubbles. The body was hazy and there was carbonation observed. The hue was yellow-gold and there was very little lacing with this beer. The nose was hoppy and sweet and the flavor was bitter, hoppy and it had an aftertaste that lingered. The mouthfeel was tingly, smooth, thin, watery and light-medium bodied.

I might have made a mistake by trying this after sampling the Belks ESB...but the hops still came through loud & clear when I first tasted it. Nice maltiness up front followed by a pronounced citrusy hoppiness. smooth palate with decent carbonation. Very nice beer.

Average micro APA. I had this with some really spicey chili, so the hops were good to have in it. The appearance was pathetic, no head, no leacing, almost like water. Musky hop aroma though, not floral or herbal.

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Fruity, floral hop aroma, a little earth, some light toasty and caramel maltiness. Medium golden color, clear, with a lasting, creamy head and fine lace. Just a bit of a malt hint to start, from them on it's all easy-going, citrusy, floral hop resins. Sweet, light finish, some lingering, flowery hoppiness. Light-medium bodied, effervescent palate. Would make a nice session beer.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 A rather malty and medium-bodied example. Hops well-integrated with malt. Maltiness is a bit bready, only a tiny bit sweet. Hop action packs a long lasting, very subtle tingle at the tip of the tongue. Good.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Hazy golden/orange color with a very nice thick white head. The aroma and flavor had some burnt grain, citrusy hops, flowery hops, apple, and some nice sweet malts. Soft carbonation, medium body.

Poured a light golden color with a medium head. Slight citrusy aroma with a mild hop bitterness to the taste. I like Anderson's IPA much better!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2003
A little to light for me, but I was a little bit weary from the beginning with this one, and I was a little disappointed. Probably why I put off buying it for so long. Poured a lighte golden color, with a strong honey smell in the aroma, and in the taste, not very hoppy, unbalanced. It was not a bad tasting pale ale, but I have had better.

Poured a golden color with a white head. Light body. Very bitter grapefruit taste with not much malt to back it up.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Golden colored, full of particulate matter, and topped with a white head. Honestly, did somebody pour grapefruit juice in my glass? Citric, bitter, acidic notes are notable in the aroma and dominate the flavor. I can almost taste small pieces of grapefruit. The aftertaste is actually sour due to this pale's one-dimensional nature. I thought the Arrogant Bastard was a grapefruity beer, but this one blows the old standard out of the proverbial hops and malt water, and not necessarily in a good way.
