Copper colored with a fruity aroma and long lasting white head that leaves lots of lacing. Starts out malty but finishes bitter and dry. Hops really kick in at the end, but not as much as some other IPA’s. This one is very good and worth seeking out.

Bottle. Amber color with a white head. Well hopped with a floral aroma. It was balanced but no real kick or malty twist to add character. Tap in mid-October: Hittin’ the hops. Somewhat sweet. Piney and not balanced.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Fairly sweet and not nearly as much hops as I’ve become a custom to in an IPA. Despite what many sound like like a complain, I found it an excellent brew. Tnanks Herbjones for this one!

Good beer. Lots of hops in this one, almost rabbit style. Very nice aroma. Not a big fan of the sweetness though. Still a damn good beer.

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2002
A very light orange blossom smell and a wavy beaten egg white head start this off. It is deep tan orange, with a little touch of haze that glows a bit around the edges. It starts off kind of sweet like a lemon head and reaches a tart pine tree finish. The end fades quick and leaves slightly acidic trails. This is kind of quirky, requires much more study, I’ll have to get more.

On tap GABF 02: Medium orange color, resiny aroma, oily palate. Ends bitter but not in any way overwhelming.

classic west coast aroma, no hops until the finish but they hang around, they didn’t really apply their slogan on this one

Nice malty aroma. Good bitterness and hop flavor throughout...finishes a little dry.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 16, 2002
Pale gold color, large head. Lightly malted, heavily hopped. A highly hopped IPA, yet there is a definite malty overtones. Nice balance of hops and malts. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is bitter with some malt sweetness.

uglybastard (101) - Riverside, California, USA - SEP 3, 2002
Light copper in color with a thin creamy white crown which leaves a lovely lace Light pineapple, hoppy smell. Sweet hoppy flavor that fades into a hoppy spicyness. Nice fresh fruityness with a sticky, tart aftertaste. Smooth, creamy and chewy on the tongue. After Hop Rod Ryes and Stone Ruinations, these mere mortal IPAs seem like watered down versions. They are great beers, don’t get me wrong, but I think the uber-ipa’s should have a seperate catagory.
