vanvenlo (1405) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
UPDATED: APR 16, 2005 7 May 2004 - Sampled 2004AIBA - Passionfruit and hops galour aroma. Cloudy amber colour, small head and lacing. Lacks malt depth or character. Too bitter for me but I guess this is an IPA so this is what you’d expect. Stick to the tongue hops that I don’t like. It seems that this is a beer that polarises opinion, like Orval. You either love it or rate it lower.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 Clear pale orange color with a good head and lacing. Nice citrus/floral nose. Nice grapefruit/pine notes in the bitterness. Finish is dry. NIce IPA From the bottle 7 months later. Great color, aroma, and flavor! It holds up like a champ. More of a lingering bitterness than I remembered. Good IPA.

A big hop monster of a beer 70+ IBUs. It’s got a great malty sweetness and a wonderful (classic PNW) Cascade/Centennial hop flavor and aroma. The hops do tend to coat your tongue though.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Light cherry gold color, crimson edges if you will, lots of sticky lacing & good head retention. The aroma is full of fresh grapefruit & floral cascade hoppy notes; very fresh. The flavor has a nice piney mouthfeel like hop juice & a nice granola sweet malt finish. Well balanced, good body, good IPA.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Deep golden brown with a tight head. Fruity aroma full of cascade hops. Fruity citric hop flavor leads into a bready mlat body. Finishes with a big floral hop flavor and a nice bitterness. Very nice, well balanced IPA

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Tap@The Drift Inn, Yachats, Oregon. Really great IPA. Super lychee/grapefruit/pine, very decent bitterness to complement the rich flavour, yummy!!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Brilliant copper body and snow-white head. Nice aroma and flavor of grapefruit, spruce and pine. Intense, palate-wrecking quality bitterness. Hops overpower a bit, but take you for a fun ride.
