omhper (23015) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, large head. Rich sweet grapefruit, hay and melon aroma. Sweetish and clean. Less bitter than expected after the hoppy nose.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2004
(sampled bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival) Clear amber, small white head. Surprisngly soft hop aroma of grapefruit, orange peels and herbs. Soft grapefruity flavour, hints of herbs, lemon and erath. Mellow grapefruity hops with hints of wood in the finish.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Clear golden amberish with a very large everlasting white head. Smells of hops and carbonation (very gassy). Hoppy flavor that tastes more earthy than citrus. A bit too carbonated for my liking.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Golden amber with no head. Very piney centennial aroma with no malt to balance it out. Overwhelming hoppy with nothing to counter these flavors such as malt.

2004 Autumn Brew Review: Amber Coloring. Good Head. Definitly Got the Hops Down. Some Grass There As Well. Great Hop Character.

badgerben (4826) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Autumn Brew Review 2004. Dark amber color with a medium head. Aroma is quite strong in the hops and flowers department. Taste is bitter and hoppy with some citrus zest added in. Good IPA.

Pours amber with an average white head. Aroma is floral and slightly earthy. Taste is sweet hops and floral. A well made IPA.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Appearance: murky bronze color, short, white head, rather typical IPA look Aroma: now we’re talking, big, BIG, B-I-G! with the hops, fat with fruit, bitter, yet sweet, and complex, a cornucopia of citrus and peach, pineapple and more. Juicy! Taste: hugeness returns in the flavor department, healthy hop content, with a firm presence on the palate, sticking to and playing with the palate. Warm and winning, this is a most excellent IPA, reminding me of a former favorite (but only because it’s left our market) Three Floyds Alpha King. Long, hoppy finish, ever-so tasty, profoundly satisfactory. The only thing I’d change is the amateurish artwork on the label. This one would have an honored spot in my fridge, if it were only available in MN.

walleye (1092) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2004
poured copper with a nice size white head and good lacing. aroma yeast, floral, hints of citrus like not so sweet oranges. flavor orange, hops and a hint of yeast. after working on the honey do list for a few hours this was nice and refreshing break.

Aggie80 (806) - Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Well. It is an IPA. You should know that I don’t like IPAs and the only reason I drink most of them is to rate them on here. The color on this is very nice! Ice tea brown with some head and good lacing. Looks very good! The heavy hops is a turn off to me, and no sign of any malt in the flavors. This actually gets a fairly good rating, partially due to the lack of cloying aftertaste lasting a long time.
