Yellow amber color, soft but distinct hop aroma, which perfectly previews the taste, solid distinct hop citrus taste, with a sweet grapefruit aftertaste. If it were available around here I’d buy it more often

This is a pretty good beer with a dark twist to the IPA. A defeinte variance to the big bolg west coast IPA’s. Over all a good drink and a great mouthful.

Frank (2394) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Pours apple-juice amber with a thin ring of head and some patchy spots of lace. Nose is typically hoppy but with an interesting hint of toasty malt and roasted marshmallow—I like it. Medium to full bodied with very subdued carbonation adding to the perception of thickness. Very lightly sweet with some fruity apple notes. Bitterness in the finish is rather subdued and earthy. This definitely isn’t an IPA for hop-worshippers; rather it’s a solid strong ale that’s as pleasant as it devilishly drinkable. I can dig it.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Bottle pours golden, small sudsy white head, attractive lacing, with very light carbonation.   Enjoyable fresh hop aroma, seems slighly dry/chalky even.   Clean citrusy hop flavor, not terribly bitter but rather smooth.   Slightly malty, and even a bit smokey.   Good body and mouthfeel.   Slightly bitter finish, malty, and more of that minor smoked wood.

skaughty (643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Solid citrus aroma with some excellent spiderweb lacing in the pour. The flavor wasa little flat and non-descript, with a moderate hop feel. Tongue was very creamy, with a solid dry finish

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2004
22 oz bottle. Nice tangerine color with a sticky thick head. Aroma of citrus, pine and hops. The taste is malty sweetness nicely balanced out by the resinous hop juice. Had this with pizza at one of the best pizza places in New York and was blown away. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and the finish is silky smooth.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Light hop aroma, sweet and tangy, but not overwhelming. Nice fluffy white head. Great light copper color. The bubbles are fantastic every time you take a swig from the pint. Nice English style malts with grapefruity hops with a strong bite at the finish. The body is firm and solid. A well made brew. Thanks to Andre’ for the Seattle goodness.

IndianaRed (2190) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Bottle Pours a hazy peach/amber color with a small off white head and thin but even lacing. Aromas are fruity and swet for hops and quite soft and calm. Flavors are hops that again have a warm fruity and nutty flavor. Some grapefruit peel and bread notes as well. Feel is moderate and the aftertaste is quite bitter. Not my favorite but pretty good.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Bright copper colored with a frothy, white well-lacing head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some dry earthy caramel malt underneath, but not too assertive. Starts with a pleasant sugary caramel sweetness turning slightly more bitter and piney toward the crisp grapefruit finish. A pleasant, but not exceptional IPA. Thanks Indiana_Red.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a darker orange/red with fluffy white head. Aroma is piney hops. FLavor is piney hops. FLavor is full in the mouth, hops, and malt, very smooth. Very nice beer, thanks to Indiana Red For this tasty brew.
