warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2004
Mild fuggle aroma mixed with some crystal malt. Light amber color poured with a decent head that lasted for some time. Med hop flavor with some mild malt and bread flavors. An okay beer but a below average IPA.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours a light copper with a thick off-white head. Bubblegum aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Very earthy and malty. Some mild hop notes. Nothing to rave about about. Could get a lot worse.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2004
Bottle. Has a decent hop aroma, citrus. Flavor is a little overwhelmingly bitter and unpleasant, but has a solid malt backing, more on the English side than west-coast IPA's.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Copper with a small off-white head. Mild floral hop aroma and taste. light bodied and somewhat watery with little malt presence. Much milder that a typical IPA, and quite bland.

Pours amber with a small head. You can almost smell hops there. Small hop flavor goes along with small hop aroma. There are better out there.

deadguy (42) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2004
I had this at the brewery and thought it to be a really good IPA, full of a nice hoppy bite. (the fuggles hop is so nice and sharp tasting). I think it a nice body with average head. Its a middle of the road IPA. Much better at the brewery than at home from a six pack.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Amber color with a small amount of head. Flavor is pretty relaxed. It has a slightly oily mouthfeel, yet not enought of a real kick to be a serious IPA.

raymow (1224) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2004
A standard IPA. Nothing extraordinary. Decent copper color, hoppy flavor and dry finish.

roacheater (43) - Alabama, USA - FEB 23, 2004
recipe: 1 founder's ipa, 1 tuborg lager, and then 1 shipyard ipa. the shipyard shows a fantastic complexity in this sequence. it's interesting that shipyard calls it a "light copper" ale. i agree totally. copper ale means to me that the back end of the palate is emphasized... the shipyard ipa does this extremely well.

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2004
This brew has a decent, hoppy aroma and a fairly typical appearance for an IPA. The flavor is hoppy, but leaves me wanting more. And the palate is a little watery, as I expected. I probably won't get this again because there are similar beers from Sierra Nevada and even Harpoon which are simply better in almost every way.
