JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 Golden brown color. Small white head. Aroma of hops. Taste is also of bitter hops and nothing else. I didn't get any of the fruit characteristics others noticed, and that is a quality I like in an ipa. One dimensional and disappointing, I expect better things from this brewer.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Why is this called an IPA? It's not that bad, but is extremely weak compared to a typical IPA. Nice copper color with small retaining head and little lace. Kind of water with caramel malt flavor. Almost like a weak amber with a medium hoppy finish

kujo9 (1092) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Caramel colored medium amber w/ good head retention and lacing given the apparetly low carbonation. Malty toffeew/ a light tobacco hop aroma and a moderate diacetyl(buttery). Also has a hint of toastiness. Malty and bitter hop flavors balance very well and finishes to the decidedly lingering bitterness, but it's not a harsh bitterness. Fruity, caramel/toffee (diacetyl)buttery are more apparent as it warms than they are in the aroma. Aftertaste is very clean. Medium bodied with low carbonation like it was served out of a cask, but this was filtered since there was no yeast cake, also has a dry mouthfeel. I was expecting a little more ABV for an IPA, but it's a very nice session beer that I could get used to drinking a lot of due to the complexities of this smaller version of an IPA.

Duffbeer (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Nice Indian Pale Ale. Good hops, but not very strong, or over powering. Nice malts. A pretty good IPA.

kwoeltje (2212) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Nice deep amber. Mild hops aroma. Nice off-white head. Classic IPA in that it isn't all that agressivly hopped. Hints of citrus (?grapefruit). A very nice IPA.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 25, 2003
Has a great amber color with little carbonation and a hop smell. Taste is little malted at first and finishes with typical hop flavor, but I also taste a bit of honey sweetness in it. Overall not a bad IPA.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 A classic IPA. Nice aroma. Copper in color with white medium head. Smooth overall but missing something for sure.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2003
Reddish copper with a head that sustains kinda like a hot spring. Bit of a smoky grass aroma. The flavor is full-bodied, oakey, nutty, woodsy, with a hint of smoke and well rounded. An excellent ale with an 'old world' character.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2003
A definite classic that all have tried to replicate. The way IPAs were supposed to be brewed. Just enough hoppiness to keep it fresh for the long journey to the sub-continent. Elegant pour, with just the right amount of fluffy white head. Aroma is very subtle and may have been dampended by the frozen glass that the waitress served this in - but detect citrus notes. Stays strong throughout - excellent accompaniment to a meal - taste does not overpower like sone American IPAs tend to do.
