Bottle. Poured beautiful clear amber with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a generous dose of floral hops. Flavor is also sweet and hoppy, kind of watery with a dry finish. Medium body and smooth carbonation. Not bad at all, this could be a good session ale.

Good copper color. Head disappeared rather quickly, decent lacing. A sweet hoppy initial taste with a mild hop finish. A decent beer, would have liked a bigger hop finish.

pours out with a thick head that quickly dissipates. very malty smelling. nice taste, but not hoppy enough. this is good, but i guess i am more prone to liking an american brewed ipa. not bad though. goes down really easy.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Colour is golden amber with a frothy head dissolving to a coat of lace. Nose is malt with a crisp green apple smell. Flavour is clean and bitter and well hopped. I really like this beer. It does however make me marvel at how far the Brittish have strayed from the original IPA style. The American IPAs with their heavy hopping and high alcohol content tend towards the original IPA (though are still far lower in both IBU and ABV than the original beer shipped from England to India). In addition to producing a well crafted brew, Fullers seems to be tipping it's hat to the true nature of an IPA, and for that I salute them.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Clean light copper color with a small amound of head off of a careful pour. Aroma is sweet with floral and cirtus notes, and has a burnt caramel tone to it as well. Flavor is not nearly enough hopped to be a real good IPA in my book. It only ends with a little oily bitterness.

Too much malt, very much lacking in hop charachter for style. Somewhat disappointing.

hershiser2 (1208) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Nice golden amber with a small head that goes away quickly. Sweet alcohol scent. Reminds me a bit of a sweet schnaps. Thick bitter alcohol flavor, with a nice zip and yummy tang. Nice mouthfeel, not too heavy, but a bit on that side of the fence. Drinkable beer without a doubt. A bit too bitter and alcohol-flavored for my tastebuds to handle all the time, but I might come back to this one.

Hangover (1057) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Clear golden color, thin, but lasting white head. Aroma is predominantly malt, which was surprising. some coffee notes. Big malt taste in this beer. Of course, some mellow hop notes along with a strange butterscotch, bready taste. Bitter finish. A nice break from the usual superhopped american pale ales, but I'm not quite sure it was worth it's premium price. Somewhat noteworthy. A pleasant and different pale ale.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JAN 17, 2004
For all the low ratings others gave this I found it quite enjoyable. It was hoppy and had a good bitter finish. That's what I like in an IPA and this came through.

Quite alcoholic aroma. Bread, rye and hops in the flavor. Slightly hoppy. Quite sweet brew. Lacks the bitterness from the hops. Too sweet.
