muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 16, 2005
12 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy orange-brass body with a lasting medium head...grapefruit and pine sap dominate an expressive yet restrained aromas redolent as it warms of the rainforest...crisp, solid flavor profile, citrusy with a bit of old wood or dusty cardboard, quite dry. On the whole very nice but lacking fire.

Clear amber with a creamy manila head. The aroma is lighyl bready and lots of citrus grapefruit hops. The flavor is bready up front with some nice assertive citrus and floral hops. Medium body assertive tingly carbonation. A pretty nice session IPA.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - FEB 6, 2005
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Sorry gang, I just donít get it. Why make a beer that smells like a frigginí funeral home? Thatís exactly what this beer smells like. A damned íole big ass flower arrangement in a funeral home. Poured out a decent shade of copper, with a fast fading sticky white head. Flavors are ok, nothing to brag about. Sweet malts lose the competition to the overpowering hops. Medium mouthfeel, not too thin or thick. Bitter finish to it. Ok to try, but nothing to write home about.

Nice fruity ale. Never been much of a fan of the fruities, but Mad Hatter changed my mind.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Bottle: Real nice sweet grapefruit aroma. Pours a dark amber with a nice off-white head with good retention. Decent lacing. Does not taste as good as it smells. A little sour up front and not as hoppy in the finish as other top IPAís. That sourness lingers from start to finish and definitely hurts this beer.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 On tap. Poured an amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of pine and citrus. Lighter bitter with a light sweet balance to it. </br>>/br> Re-rate 8/29/05. When I poured this into my glass, I wasnít paying full attention and this one poured almost all head. The head started overflowing from my glass so my 1st reaction was to try and drink the head so it didnít spill all over my office floor. Needless to say, I had IPA foam coming out of my nose! Iím getting a spiciness in this bottle that I didnít get in the tap version. Lowered the overall by a point.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Nice spruce pine aroma and a moderate foamy head. Excellent lacing. Beer is slightly hazy amber. First taste is full-on hops, grapefruit and pine. Late toasty malt, lacks a bit on body, but good for style. One of the better IPAs.

Beaver (1270) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Pours a hazy golden orange with lots of miniscule floaties. It has a white pillowy head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

Its aroma is piney, grapefruity centennial hops...yum! It dissipated rather quickly though.

The flavor is some sweet doughy malts followed by a big bitter bang. It has a strong lingering bitter floral hop aftertaste, almost a bit too much. Itís similar to the Founderís Centennial and Bellís Two Hearted, but definitely less balanced. The mouthfeel is a little on the thin side.

Overall, a nice IPA. A little unbalanced though.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2005
bottle. this one was so over-carbonated, it was all head in the glass. what I was able to get from this one was that it was somewhat hoppy but probably short on malt, and not very well balanced. maybe it was a bad bottle, but it did NOT make a good impression.

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Orange-amber with nice stoic rocky head. Heavy melon-laced hop aroma, with a ruddy hopped flavor ... grassy, almost watermelony ... nice.
