tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2004
Strong grapefruit hop nose. Clear golden coloured body with decent white head that recedes to cover. Overly bitter though hop flavour is excellent. All C-hops. Malt balance is somewhat lacking. Body is fair. Drinkable though not exemplary - somewhat plain. On tap at the Vermont Brewers Festival.

DYCSoccer17 (3329) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2004
On tap at Vermont Brewers Fest. 3 oz sample. Nose is sort of grainy with some citrus grapefruit in there. Perhaps a slight soapy nose as well. Light copper color with a slight haziness and a small head. Taste is quite one-dimensional. Grainy hop hop hoppity from the start. Quite bitter and bland and a boring one-dimensional IPA.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2004
cask: This brew is rich on different spices. Holy basil, apples, some pepper spices, smoked malt and tea. This id found in the aroma as well as the flavor. The finish is quite bitte and the palate is spicy.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2004 Golden in color with a thin rocky white head. Earthy/spicy aroma with a touch of toasty/bready malt character.Bitter and hoppy from start to finish,with a dry lingering bitterness. 7/4/8/3/16 Re-rated- Cask version,bright golden in color with a large white head. Aroma of fruit, mainly citrus,wood and toasted malt. Flavor was again citrusy,taosted malt, and cookie dough with a smooth creamy mouthfeel.Finishes with a slight acidic/sour quality.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2003
I really liked this one. Sweetish and hoppy. Oaty malts, gives it some sweetness, hoppy, quite bitter finish, tea-like hops, nice soft texture (Cask- GBBF 03')

leaparsons (8174) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2003
Aromas are hoppy with refreshing grapefruit. It tastes of citrus fruit, oily pine needle hops and a touch of, oddly, cough medicine. Just the tonic.

Nerax'03 Huge fresh citrusy hops nose. Clear orange looking. Wonderful bitter piney citrusy taste. Bitter fruity finish. Was my suprise winner on the day. Do they always do this? I've never been there when they have the ipa on.
