Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Moderately bitter for an IPA. Lots of hops all around, but not overdone like th 90 minute. Lots of citrus from the amarillo. Well done.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Pours a hazy amber, with a thick white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and lemony. Grapefruit and orange on the tongue. Decent amount of hops. Nice bitter finish. This is a delightful IPA.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Pretty dar good. Orangy cloudy appearance with a small 1/2 inch head. Sweet and a little saltiness in the flavor. A mild IPA. Not as good as the 90 minute, which I have to drink again and rate.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 Orangey and opaque with a white, light head. Sweet & hoppy, turning in to bitter & hoppy, tingly. Long-lasting malt & resinous hop aftertastes. Powerful but not overpowering. At one time I didn’t love it, but it is now one of my favorites.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Bottle: bottle conditioned pours a dark straw color. Sweet malt with piney hop flavor and a very steady persistent bitter aftertaste.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2003
This beer is a dark golden color. The consistency is light, but is is murky and not easily seen through. The taste is extremely full and fresh. The hops are very noticeable and do somewhat overpower the malt. A tasty beer most would like.

possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2003
12oz. Bottle (Bottled in October, drank 11/23/03). Warm orange yellow color. Thin head. Slighty fruity aromas. Tingly, carbonated feel in the mouth. Hoppy sweet taste with slighty sweet aftertaste. Not as hoppy as other IPA's I've tried but a nice beer overall.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Cloudy Copper, thin but persistant white head. Huge lemon and fruit aroma. The initial flavor is hops, of course - woodsy, resiny, earthy, then more of a tart, citrus flavor. Malt is there, but never really takes center stage. Thinnish body, which seems to fit this brew.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 bottle. COMPLETE Re-rate! (When I rated this back in ’03, I wrote "I’m not an IPA fan"...... How time&tastes change.) Great hop combo that results in silly drinkability & challenging character. Perfectly Pale Session Ale.

bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Possibly the best IPA I've ever had. Not killing you with hops. Nicely drinkable. Powerful odor.
