Dry and floral, with the beautiful aroma of fresh hops and a sublime maltiness from gently roasted barley.

Maybe it was the plastic glass - but I wasn’t impressed. lifeless pour, with a near-lifeless taste. A little bit of red malt, a little bit of hops and that is about all we have here - boring.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Clear orangish brew with a shitload of creamy foam.Nose is a fragrant hoppy malty and almost a fresh orange aroma.Flavor is a little less than I like but still soft on the hops with a side order of malt.A nice session brew.Thanks to Andre’ for this,and many others !!!

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Pours a golden orange hue with a small white head. Aromas of pine and hops but the flavor loses all of its points. Very unique, but not that great.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2004
This IPA pours with a golden orange body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet slightly bitter and hoppy with a slight pine note and a little sourness. The flavor is bitter and hoppy with a slight sweetness, a little pine, a little coriander and a little funk. Meidum bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Very spice/pepper hopped aroma. Hazy darker orange with a small white head. Taste has a belgian style spice thats not to my liking in an IPA. Sweet spicy fruity start with a moderate bitter finish. Just not my thing to mix that spiciness into an IPA.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 10, 2004
caramel, flowers and lemon in the nose; some bready malt and nice bitterness throughout; decent balance and overall a pretty good IPA

PorterPounder (6284) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Dark orange appearance, with a fluffy white head with thick creamy lacing. Fresh, sweet floral aroma with some sprucey back end notes. Citrusy flavor, but not overdone or tongue numbing. Also detect a bit of nectarines. Some nutty maltiness balances it out well. Clean even mouthfeel, not stinging like some IPAs can be. All in all, a most decent IPA.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 My rating below was from Sept. 2004. Either I DID have a bad bottle or my palate has changed. Thoroughly enjoyable beer. Very drinkable. Sweet malty flavour with strong hops. Malty allows the beer to flow nicely through your mouth as your tongue tries to catch the hops floating by. Does seem to have some variation bottle-to-bottle. Not a big fan. Bottle. Did I get an old one? Orangey mid amber. Big head with nice lacing. Very strong spruce aroma. Flavour was gasoline edged spruce. Beer was harsh and bitter best described as a baby Ruination.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Pretty balanced west coast IPA with strong hop palate balanced with powerful malt backbone. One of the better offerings in Seattle but by no means the best.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2004
bottle 12 oz. Nice amber/copper color w good straw head that could have stood up longer, some lace, moderate carbonation. Aroma is nice, full, creamy malt w moderate hops, grapefruit, and a touch of spiciness. Flavor is light/medium roasted malt with a quick, sharp hop bitterness and flavor, just a bit sweet, with a touch of nice spiciness. This beer is nicely balanced w a creamy malt and hop bitterness on the finish. In the upper half of medium bodied.
