Pretty good IPA, nice to drink on a warm, summer day. Not as much hop bite as I would expect, but has good mix, feel and finish.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 4, 2004
Looks like an extra-pale ale -- no head. Smells of.. well, nothing, just beer. Felt like I was smelling a miller lite. Has a nice crispness to it, but I can’t treat this like an IPA. I feel like if Bud made an IPA, it would taste like this.

reasonable but slightly muted. citric aroma, quite sweet but with moderately bitter finish. just lacking in guts

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2004
Sampled at one of the best bars on the planet. 75 taps, waitresses in School girl outfits, live music and pool tables. What more can you ask? This is yet another typical good IPA with a nice balanced bitterness in the palate.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Pale, copper colored, see through with small white head. Head has poor retention and is not frothy like a really good IPA is. Aroma is hoppy-- straw and citrus. Has a light malty flavor with a moderately hoppy middle and a decent, but not too strong, hoppy aftertaste. Fairly decent, but not one of the best IPA’s around.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Slightly bitter/grapefruity hops. Pretty nice hoppy aroma and a bit of sweet malt in there too. Effervescent yet smooth palate.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Not a bad IPA, refreshing and crisp, several of these goes down easy. Nice aroma of hops, but not overpowering. A little malt body but not too sweet. Quite tasty

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2004
floral, honey-like aroma. sweet, nice hop bite. clean, refreshing palate. more flavorful than i expected, being an east coast ipa and all. not bad at all.

savannah (37) - columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Pretty good. Nice golden color and head that stick to sides of glass. Definite hop aroma;clean and refreshing. Nice mouth feel, medium-high carbonation but doesn’t bite. Clean hop flavor that’s balanced well with malt. Very drinkable.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Bottle. Medium sized creamy and smooth white head and fine-large sized bubbles that mostly diminished. Carbonated, transparent and a straw yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and a sweet aroma with a mostly hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth. This was a medium bodied beer with very sparse lacing.
