UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Great hoppy ale. Nice amber ale with some nice white head. Beer has some great flavor and some great hop tones. Awesome IPA

A very good, full flavored IPA. Backed up with a crisp and strong hop bitterness. Also had a slight hint of grapefruit that a lot of IPAs tend to have.

jsquire (4106) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2004
Melted caramel color with a lasting off white head that left lots of sticky lace. Pine hop nose. Syrupy mouthfeel with lots of hop burn on the tongue. Great fruity malt backbone with grapefruit rind bitterness. Very well balanced but definitely a hop showcase. Great IPA. Thanks to HeRftYDrF for the tade.

muzzlehatch (4468) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 12 oz bottle. Dark maple, medium head decays quickly, lacing beautifully. Dried cherries, caramel, and pine dominate a complex, vivacious nose, and this dark fruitiness carries over into the wonderfully deep, sweet body which seems almost a cross between a Scottish Ale and an IPA to me; very sweet, earthy and creamy but with underlying layer upon layer of complex leafy fresh stinky PNW hoppiness. This is a treasure, unquestionably one of the best IPAs I've had. The bitterness goes on and on and on.

bu11zeye (12616) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 18, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a deep copper color with an off-white head. Has a hops and citrus aroma. Big hoppy flavor. Descent IPA.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2004
Looks really highly carbonated, dark orange/brown, rocky off white head, smells very hoppy/floraly and citrusy, flavor is hard core hoppy, nice thick mouthfeel, hints of grapefruit, malty flavor, this is a great brew across the board

123456green (46) - houston, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2004 Pours very heavy, perhaps the darkest IPA you will ever find. Malts are rich and at some point over the top, you have to taste long and hard to find the hops. Finish is rich, overly smooth and thick. Not at all a simple IPA. I'll past on this one and whats with the bottle label?

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 12 oz bottle, fresh: dense, plateaued, slightly yellowed head. Bready, pine needle aroma with loads of grapefruit zest and fresh hop cones. Wild, natural bitterness with a slight, intriguing sweet funk. The tongue is wrapped in an orange-honey bitter blanket. Dark woody finish that leaves a long bronzed hop aftertaste. Great brew. 9/4/7/4/16
12 oz bottle, over 1 year old: no reduction in the density or size of the off-tan, rocky head. Much of the strong grapefruit essence in the aroma has condensed into sugary caramel and an alcohol medical quality. The orangey bitterness has turned slightly sour and but remains bitter and funky. I think that I prefer the fresh one, but I had to keep one around to see what would happen…8/4/6/4/15

boto (2082) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2004
12oz bottle: This had an interesting color. It was amber, but had hints of brown and red to it also. BIG foamy head that died down quickly. Decent lacing down the glass. Some grapefruit hop notes to the nose. Some sweetness and floral also. Really nice taste. Initial moderate hop bite with a good malt balance. A bit of roastiness comes through in the aftertaste.
