Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Light amber. White head. Weak fruity and piney hops unscored by insipid caramel malts. Disappointing for the style.

Yet another SA brew that has disappeared. From 2000 notes - Amber with a white head. Medium floral/citrus hop aroma. Flavor is more malt then expected. Medium body. Very mild for the style.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Hop nose and dark straw color. Pleasant hop bitterness with a good malt balance. Long hop finish.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Amber in color,small white head that faded quite quickly.The aroma was some what spicey and decently hoppy with a nice floral side to it.The taste was much less as good as the aroma.Malty taste and light on the hops,not at all what i was expecting from this brew.It had a slight bitter side to it that made things a little closer but still i think this brew misses the mark.It's worth trying IMO but little else and it might be worth trying in a larger quantity but maybe wait for summer,it just doesn't fit into the season.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Not my favorite style. Has a weak hops flavor. A very average beer from an average brewery.

Goods choice, one of the american beers that stands out and is worth a try.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Hoppyness and caramel in the aroma. Caramel and slight hoppy in the taste, but the flavor was very weak. Bitter aftertaste. Stunningly average for an IPA.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 29, 2003
Light copper color, no head to speak about. Caramelly aroma and palate with strong bitter finish. An English-style IPA.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2003
Amber color, small white foamy head. Sweet aroma of toffee, and caramel. Sweet malty flavor (toffee, burnt sugar, caramel). Sweet and one-dimensional. Where is the hops???

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Comes off with a golden hue, small tight white head and some lacing. The aroma hints of floral and aromatic hops, light citrus zest, and caramel/toffee malts. More subdued than most American IPA's, more malt and less aggressive hops than I'm used to. Lingering hop aftertaste. Thin-bodied with a sweet and lively mouthfeel. An okay IPA and a good introduction to the style for your non hophead friends.
