Kinz (3395) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Clear copper appearance, decent head faded. Nice upfront aroma of grapefruit as the Cascades introduce themselves. Grapefruit is also the dominant flavor note, with a tiny bit of toffee and biscuit to balance. Tiny bit of medicinal touch creeps in at the very end once it is warm. Could have been more full bodied, but all in all an enjoyable beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Pours a clean amber slightly red, not much head to speak of. Lots of floral hops in the nose, some malt. Not too much hops in the flavors, more malty. Smooth IPA.

Cleam and refreshing. Not overly hoppy and has a bit more body than first expected. Nice.

PorterPounder (5831) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Had on tap at the brewpub in Seattle. Excellent IPA in the true west coast style. Has a light copper color appearance, sticky off-white head with good lacing. Has a good mouth-numbing grapefruit flavor that I crave for every so often. Stays strong to the finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Standard amber color with typical head and lacing. Clean dry hopped aroma, very floral. Good balance with a sweet dry and bitter finish. Not the best IPA but metter than most macro ipas. I'm spoiled with one of the IPAs here at a local brewpub.

prpplague (247) - Euless, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2003
draft. great appearance, slighly cloudy orange/golden color, aroma is a little weak, but the lace is perfect smooth and consistant, great flavor with an incredible hop finish

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2003
A crystal clear amber color on the pour, the head monstrous in size, creamy in texture, a winsome light tan in color and the lace a velvety sheet to conceal the glass. Sweet malt, the aroma of hops, citrus crisp and a real treat to the old schnozzle, start sweet and malt laden, the top is light to middling in its feel. Finish is delicately acidic, the hops are prickly in their spicy bite, a mid-range IPA, not overpowering, just plain drinkable.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2003
Pours a light straw color with a nice frothy head. Nose of dry hops with a taste to match. VERY DRY! One of the driest ales on planet earth. I love hops and this was not in the least too much for me but it needed more balance.
