Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2002
Nice, mild IPA. Very floral, and citrus notes, which carries over onto the palate. Slight dry finish. Very pleasant, refreshing IPA

dprior (118) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2002
Too malty for my tastes. A solid appearance, nice and dark. Not much in the way of aroma or flavor though. Average

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 26, 2002
A nice dark amber color, decent but plainish aroma. Nice hint of bitterness, a little too citrusy for my taste, but overall a solid beer.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2001
Huge chunks of floating crud in it, which spoiled an otherwise perfect looking beer. Pretty hoppy for a British IPA.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2001
Nice english style IPA. Solid malt backbone with a citric/earthy hop mix. Not a hophead brew by any stretch but a good brew none the less.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2001
Deep orange, almost amber colour. Big beige head. Restrained citrus hop aroma. grapefruit/lemon hop flavours with a malt balance underneath (a touch of chocolate malt). Slightly tangy. Medium bodied. This is good, but I prefer lighter bodied, and more hop accented IPAs. There Champ Ale is much better in this regard.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2001
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 1st sampled July 01, scored 7/4/9/4/17=4.1 total.

4/9/03: thick, cloudy, nearly opaque orange-brown, little head. Citrusy-orangey nose, fairly strong and sharp. Strong orange-grapefruit hoppiness evident in the flavor as well, reasonably bitter throughout but with good caramel malt backup. Not as distinctive as the brewer’s best, but a very good "Englishy" session IPA unquestionably. 7/3/8/3/14 3.5

November 2004: pungent-earthy-spiciness is what’s most noticeable, especially in the incredibly chewy, dense body. Grows on me.

Cask at McNeills. Perhaps the most pungent and earthy hops I’ve ever encountered...sweet honey-orange marmalade initially, quickly blown away by leafy smelly bitterness...sweetness returns just a bit at the finish to give depth and perspective. Cask rating: 5/8/9/4 17 4.3

Average of last two ratings.
