BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle: Slightly cloudy amber color with a small white head. Hoppy aroma - citrus, grapefruit - and some caramel. Nicely bitter from the hops, but also a bitterness coming from the darker malts that really blends nicely. Taste has Citrus, grapfruit, grains, earthy malts. Quality IPA, would like to try on tap.

Slightly piney, slightly citrus aroma with some caramel malt hints. Nothing that really grabs your nose though. Pours a hazy cider color with an off-white head. A little too murky for an IPA. Exquisitely bitter and hoppy to finish. Very grapefruity. Some citrus to start. Subdued grainiess. This is a really chewy and grainy IPA. It’s a decent change from the typical C-hopped west coasters.

Straight forward New England IPA that is earthy and well rounded. A pint after pint IPA.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2004
Medium hop aroma but also had an off aroma that didn't belong there. Poured with a huge head that lasted for some time. This beer had lots of floaters. This was an old oxidized beer, the hop flavors were stale I'll need to try this fresh and rate it again.

Thick bottom layer gives "interesting" haze in orange-amber ale; miscellaneous yellow-amber head. Hop flowers, opened hopbail nose, flowery - nearly perfumey. Very bitter indeed, hop-oil like, near bile taste. There's (coloured) malt underneath, but it's gotten completely overwhelmed by this bitter onslaught. Medium-bodied only. Oily mouthfeel, probably due to the hop(...). Yeast deposit gives more creamy feeling. Hopbitterness, indeed, but this one is totally without any subtelty. Nice nose, but the total unbalance ruins it.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Petty solid IPA, more toward an English IPA, but that is what I expect from the East Coast. Bronze colored, small head. Very balanced. Moderate amount of hops, probably a crystal malt, not over the top on either. Very good beer, Thanks Oldgrowth

OldGrowth (3008) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Bottle: Ok nose,floral & flowery. Brownish orange color. Tad hazy. Decent head. Bitter sweet hops, grapefruit, buttery. Bitter, medium bodied. Leaves nice bitter dryish finish. I like it alot, though this is another of those beers that use to seem big but now seems regular. Glad it's back in Ipswich again.
