GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Draught at The Federal in Durham, NC. Hazy golden color with nice bubbly white head. Delicious hoppy nose with citrus and flowers. Fresh grainy flavor balanced well with the hop bitterness and flavor. Solid brew.

NachlamSie (2944) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2007 Draught during my Dark Lord excursion. Pours a golden hue with a small white head. The aroma is malty and has hints of apple, faint grapefruit, caramel. This is a malty sweet IPA; I didn’t find as much hop character as I would’ve liked. Notes of caramel and flowers make up the flavor. I remember being more impressed with this in the past.

slabonator (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Hazy copper beer with nice lasting head. Sweet malt, fruit and floral hop nose. Excellent carbonation with a nice medium-full body. Solid balancing malt character and bitterness at the end. Great beer to drink anytime.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Medium amber-gold color with a thin, loose head. Mild earthy hops aroma with a light touch of caramelized citrus peel. Clean, bright, focused hops bitterness in the flavor over a very light malt profile. This beer is all about hops--very fresh tasting and well-balanced overall. Has an easygoing mouthfeel which makes this a crisp, refreshing, serious IPA.

hopheadsherm (1) - iowahawaii, Maryland, USA - SEP 22, 2005 does not count
bottle. this is a definitive IPA. pours perfectly...honey amber color with long lasting head and maximum lacing. Nose is extraordinary, with melon, apple, citrus, hay/grass intonations. Flavor is strong at first, with heavy hops. Finishes gently and light. Makes you wamt more...and more...and more.

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours copper with a small rocky off-white head and lined lacing that remains in the glass long after the beer is gone. Huge floral fruity (peach, pear, apple) hop and malt (meal, cereal) aroma with caramel notes. Highly bitter acidic hop flavor with a caramel malt body and pear notes. Medium bodied and fizzy palate with a dry finish.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Beautiful golden beer with white head and medium lacing. Aroma is a tangerine hoppiness, grassy, and with slight malt aroma. Velvety mouthfeel, strong tangerine component. Hints of oak hinding deep in the palate. Nice astringency balanced with malt sweetness and with a bitterness and citrusy aftertaste that slowly fades. A great hop experience if you like the Pacific Northwest monster hop varieties, but I still like Avery IPA better.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Strong citrus smell. The epitomy of what an IPA should taste like. Citrus Grapefruit sweetness and bitterness. The sweetness balances the hop bitter. Stacks up nicely to Stoudts IPA or Stone’s. The cleanist comparison out of the whole Minute IPA series to what an IPA should be. The 90 minute and 120 minute IPAs are more like Barley wine’s then IPAs. This one is different.
