Good solid beer, could use a little more bite, but not too much. Good amber appearance, rich aroma, and hoppy taste, could leave a little more on the palate though.

Nice aroma, with the house hops of SA. A week head. A short taste.

I prized a bottle of this from a dusty corner of my favorite beer store, but was a touch disapointed. They went for balance and lost in the hops department. Still, a decent brew.

omhper (19310) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2002
Amber. Sweet, hop dominated, rather malty, bitter. A little one-dimensional perhaps.

One of the few IPA’s I will drink.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Best before date Feb 2002, drank on 2/7/02: A slightly below average IPA. It is styled between a west coast and an English IPA, but lacks the finer points of either.

darkvibe (68) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2002
I like this beer. It could stand a little more bite though. It’s a little bland.

fraternie (815) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2002
A very strange apricotty/ citrus malt flavor. Fairly hoppy with a decent finish. An average IPA.

An excellent beer....however, could stand for a bit more hoppiness.
