frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2005
A light hazed golden/copper with a thin but holding off-white head. Aroma suggests that sweet malts will accompay piney hops. Additional notes of Juicy Fruit® gum and grapefruit. Flavor is all hopped-up goodness, bitter and fruity within a well-carbonated, spicy mouthfeel. Malts are not as sweet as expected and provide enough balance to make this a sessionable IPA.

Brewtopia 11-12-05. Poured hazy yellow with good size head. Nose was big hops, and citrus. This was a fine IPA, good mouth feel and sweet/hop after taste.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Nice hazygold pour with small white head. As can be expected, it had a very hoppy aroma, little bit of dried fruit. Grassy on the aftertasted, well-blended and textured, overall a good specialty IPA.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2005
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy as well as very fruity. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol coming thru the notes of grass, and leading to a dry hoppy and bitter end.

Sammy (8631) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Astringent bitter on palate, found it hard to finish bottle which is not true for 95% of IPAs I have had. Some acidic orange flavour but mouth puckered too much, needs more malt.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Golden brown color, nice lacing. Aroma has notes of grapefruit and apricot. Some piney bitterness, lightly sweet caramel malts. They’re not reinventing the wheel here, but it’s a solid beer.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Clear gold pour with a white frothy head. Spicy, piney hop aroma quickly evident. Clean malt flavor and feel with citrus and piney hop flavors that last into the bitter finish. Obviously dry hopped. Quite enjoyable and thirst quenching.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Bright golden amber with a thick white head which is retained well. Nice citrusy hoppy aroma with some sweet nutty malt presence. Definitely an IPA but this is well balanced and not over the top hoppy. Relatively short finish for an IPA, but this makes it refreshing and thirst quenching. Could use a bit more body, but a very good IPA.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
golden color thick white well laced head. Smells like a kids ceral but I couldn’t figure out which one. A sweet sugar and light citrus aroma. Full oily creamy palate. a dry grapefruit hop w/ some nice carmel balance finishes evenly bitter. Good stuff.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with SpringsLicker (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of pineapple, oranges and some citrus. Softer tastes of pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus. Light to lightly medium bitterness. Not a bitter hop bomb.
