Big floral nose. Small beige head. Pale golden amber hue. Nice body and mouthfeel. Succulent malts provide a great balance for a big, spicy, resinous English hopped up finish. Nicely done without being overhopped and excessive.

Panzuriel (1922) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Decent cheaper India Pale Ale. Good hops nice clean taste. Good aftertaste. Not Strong or offensive like most IPAs. Okay aroma decent color. think tight head.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2003
No head retention on a medium amber body. Smells like sweet malts, tastes like watered down hops. This is pretty weak for an IPA, but would make for an acceptable American Pale Ale. A bitter, metallic finish.

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Copper color. Buttery, hoppy aroma. Those two things make it seem pleasant, but then you take a sip. This is thin bodied, with some slight traces of malty sweetness. The hop level is good, but there is something about it (maybe the combination of hops used) that clashes and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. A bit disappointing.

jgb9348 (5612) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Nice copper colour, and a long-lasting off-white head. Slightly hoppy aroma, not too strong though. A decently hoppy taste balanced pretty well with some malt. Long-lasting aftertaste as well. I'm happy I got to try this, although its not my favourite IPA, it ranks pretty high on the list!

amber in color. sweet and less hoppy than i expected from an ipa, but nicely flavored and rich. yet another success from middle ages.

Too damn buttery ... to hell with diacetyl.

Radek Kliber (7117) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2003 Nice aromatic smell. Medium intensivity, slightly parfumy. Thick impressive head. Bright amber color. Strong IPA flavours. Very clean and decently balanced which is not always the case in IPAs. Very intensive, and rich.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Reddish gold color, thick white lacing on glass. Peachy citrus nose. Nice hop presence but not overpowering like I expect in an IPA today. A good session beer.

A nice IPA,...nice. Hints of grapefruit with a good body. Well balaced. Good but not great.
