A brilliant, dry pale ale with an aggressive hop character balanced with a smooth finish. A bold beer best consumed with a stiff upper lip.

3fourths (8699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Golden colored with a small filmy white head. Grainy bread and biscut nose, with an odd resemblence to a Saaz hopped pils. Flavor has a dusty and airy hop and wet grain flavor so prevalent in mediocre IPAs and pale ales: toast and dried grass, I guess it would be best to describe it as. Finished light and clean, but without much flavor other than a ESB-like bite. Certainly not a bad beer, but not close to what I consider a worthy IPA.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Strangely pale gold color, very little head. Typical citrusy IPA aroma and hopsy flavor, but much more on the malts side than Iíve come to expect from an IPA. I think I would prefer the Highland Gaelic Ale or Oatmeal Porter above this brew.

DocLock (8678) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pours hazy canary with medium head. Aroma of hopcit, fruit. Tastes hopcity, with a malty, fruity finish. Smooth on the palate. This is the goldest (non copperest) IPA Iíve ever had.

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle. Iíve had this several times on tap, but htis is the first time from a bottle. Not quite the IPA I remember from the past and I expect more from this brewer. Huge head over a hazy dark yellow body. Sweet malt and gentle pine aroma which certainly isnít overdone, but o.k. Balanced flavor need mor eintensity. This makes a fine APA but falls short of being a top IPA.

hopdog (10105) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Acquired in trade with goldtwins. Poured a medium, cloudy golden color with a very small white head. Aromas of flowers and very light citrus. Tastes of flowers and light citrus as well. Very lightly bitter with a very light sweetness to it. Weaker version of an IPA.

egajdzis (5652) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Poured hazy golden color with no head or lacing on the glass. Floral aroma, not hops, but rose petals, light citrus as well. Taste of tangerine, grass, and a very light bitterness. A very different IPA.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2005
Bottle pours pale yellow, slightly hazy, large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with soft carbonation. † Stale oatmeal aroma, no hop at all. † Very thin pale malt flavor... where are the hops? † Body is medium, mouthfeel is medium, but this beer is boring. † Not bad, just not an IPA by any stretch of the means... nor a Pale Ale. † Aggressive hop character? † Bold beer? † Um... at least it doesnít taste bad... but its no IPA. † It tiz somewhat smooth tho... at least they got that bit of advertising correct.   Thanks goes out to goldtwins for the trade!

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2005
From a bottle. Clear orange color. Floral aroma. Nice hoppy IPA from a decent NC brewery.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2005
Draft, pint glass. Spicy and citric hops upfront...reminds me of centennial. Slight caramel and honey sweetness. Very clean aroma. Light yellow-golden hue, served without a head. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor shifts to a lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic finish. Very nice spicy bitterness in the finish. Light and pleasant acidity. Medium body, smooth/watery texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: A pleasant session, on par with most other micro IPAs, but nothing to set it apart.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle from Goldtwins. Pours a nice amber color. Sparse white head fades out rather quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Lacking in aroma, neither malt nor hop is really present here. Very slight caramel and floral hints. Lighter in body. Nicely bitter. Hop bitterness just overtakes the sweet malt in this race. Fair IPA.
