12 oz bottle pours a crystal clear amber with a good rocky head and only slight lace. Flowery aroma of hops. The flavor was hoppy with a light malt backbone. The finish was somewhat bitter. The palate is a touch light. This one is OK, but I'm glad I only got 12 oz.

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Draft, beautiful orange color with a head that looked like it was a molded white cap on top that didn't fade. Aroma of gentle hops. Flavor was also centered around hops, flowery with a touch of grapefruit floating in the background. The malt came up a bit short, leaving the beer thin and almost watery on the finish.

Ungstrup (31499) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2003
The aroma is slightly hoppy. The color is a slightly hazy lihgt amber and it has an OK but fast disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and hoppy from aroma hops. It ends on a grassy note. It is not that bitter, so I would rather call it a standard ale than an IPA. An OK beer but nothing special.

Darkover (1529) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Copper colored with a small beige head. More malt in the aroma than hops. Flavor is pretty hoppy though. Finish is long, dry and bitter. A little over carbonated.

PorterPounder (6543) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2003
More akin to a bitter than a IPA in my humble opinion. Sweet fruity aroma with a bit of a cinnamon backbite to it. Dark golden appearance with a decent white head. Fuggles hops are very evident - good bitter qualities. Not your normal IPA - very dry but smooth.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Strongly flowery and citric hop aroma, with a rather light malt presence. Medium golden amber in color, with an average, large-bubbled head. Flavor is largely hoppy, with a pleasant citrusy, spicy, floral bitterness throughout, and once again only a small role here for the malt to play, adding just a dab of toasty, caramel sweetness. Finish is dry and crisp. Medium bodied, with a very smooth, mildly astringent palate. Enjoyable, but seemingly only really noteworthy for its unusual single hop addition.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours a light amber/coppery color, nice size off-white head that slowly diminishes, leaves good lacing. Aroma of funky fruitiness & butterscotch (probably from the ringwood yeast), and a medium floral hoppiness. Lots of butterscotch in the flavor, slight fruitiness in the middle, and a medium bitter ending. Body is medium, mild carbonation, and quite clean, non-lingering flavors.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2003
(Bottled) Amber colour. Light hoppy, nutty aroma. Dry hop flavour with a band-aid-like finish.

larsniclas (6247) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Bottled. A fine IPA with a lot of hoppy bitterness both in the aroma and flavour. Some hints of toffee and nuts in the aroma. Rather lively to be an IPA and rather dry palate.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2003
hint of malt in the aroma. Not as much hop aroma as I would have expected. A very smooth IPA but not as over the top as expected. I would definitely classify this more along the English style.
