Extremely pale taste and after taste was even worse. I think I still have a strange face because of it.

Good malt aroma. Good balance of malt and bitterness. Not quite as big as I expected. Still another good beer from a great brewery.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Yikes, this one was a blaring disappointment. Waaaay too fizzy mouthfeel, not bitter enough, and it has that Sweet-Tartish candy quality that ruins the entire mess. Bad.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 Rating #150__ This beer was acquired in trade from jgb9348, thanks buddy. I rated the 90min IPA for my 100th so I decided to rate the 60min IPA 50 beers later.
This pale copper colored IPA pours a fine two finger off white head, and presents a strong lacing, very fizzy. The hops are initially sweet, reminiscent of strawberries, orange zest, and honey. The flavor in the finish is tart, some malt apparent, a bit toasty. This is a tremendous IPA; I far enjoyed this one over of the 90min. Thanks Jeremy!

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Tasted in DC from Cairo. Orange colour, slightly cloudy. Spicy hopped scent. Nice hoppy taste.

UNCCTF (488) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Cloudy orange color with a white head. This beer is pure hops - aroma and flavor are flowery, and the finish is pretty bitter. Not bad.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Has a florally hop aroma and taste and a cloudy golden appearence. Not as hoppy as Indica, but good enough.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Lots of hops (duh) in the nose and flavor. Nice copper color, velvety texture. Not quite as good as the 90 minute, but worth a try nonetheless.

heykevin (1277) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Beautiful hoppy aroma. Hops are definitely american, but do not have the strong grapfruity bend most american IPAs posess, (absence of cascades) hops almost smell noble. Great hop flavor balanced by supply malt (not too much crystal malt!) Moutfeel is nice (velvety carbonation) Excellent, with unique hop flavor. I wish this were available locally.

Metallic, grapefruit flavors. Not the best IPA out there but worth a try. Not as smooth as Stone.
