   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Tried this at the brewery in June 2003 when they tapped the last of 4 casks designed to recreate an "authentic" IPA by mimmicking the 4 mouth travel from Britain to India. They tricked me into going to the brewery by advertising it as a cask ale. What they did was advertise and hype the cask aging, but then just serve it from a regular keg. Not very authentic. On to the rating: Murky amber orange hue. Aroma of apples, sugar, and sweet caramel. Not too hoppy, more just a sugar-sweetness with some mild fruit. Good balanced hop profile overall, but muddled by the grainy-sugar feel. Roasted coffee undertones in the finish along with some nuts, most likely some taste produced by the cask. Musty finish, like an old dusty attic. I agree with portlandrunk that this would be better after a little while.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2003
Not huge and hoppy like many west coast IPA’s. This beer is going for a more balanced taste, with a nice round and pleasant hop taste that lasts through the finish. This could become something special with aging.
