(sample @ brewery) a deep gold, lightly hazed, with good lacing. aroma is lightly hoppy (light for an IPA, that is), with prominently citrus-y American hop notes. flavor starts malty, then gives way to an unpleasantly astringent bitterness. hops and malt show decent balance, but ultimately astringency hinders the drinking.

The carbonation was very active. The hoppy taste wasn’t surprising for an IPA.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Draft sample. This beer had a small sized white head that consisted of fine sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body was hazy and uncarbonated with a golden hue. The nose was hoppy and the flavor was bitter and hoppy with a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth and dry with a watery and thin texture. This was a light bodied beer with no lacing.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2004
This draft sample poured a minimal head of fine clear mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a minimal lace. The body was uncarbonated hazy and light brown in color. The aroma was typical of a hoppy IPA. The mouth feel was malty and the flavor was malty with a mild hop note.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2004
I had this beer on tap at the brewery. The color is a medium amber. The head is cream in color. The smell is of grapefruit and floral hops. The taste does not disapoint. It is extremely hoppy as an IPA should be. Overall very good beer.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2004
From a sampler: This brew is a clear amber color with a minimal off-white head. Almost no lacing. Nice floral hops/citrus aroma. Medium-bodied and adequately bitter from start to finish, with some citrus and malt flavors as well. The finish is bitter and lingering but not that tasty. Overall this is a satisfactory IPA.

ElGaucho (2229) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Faint hoppy aroma. Have to get your nose right up to it to smell it. Not much head, large bubble, mostly dissipating. Not much lace. Some carbonation. Off flavors. Definite serious hops, but not well balanced.
