Clear pale orange. Large white bubbles but not much head overall. Pure hop aroma. Smells exactly like fresh hops about to be thrown into the brew kettle. Flavor is more malty then the aroma suggests. Hops are rather subdued actual. Medium bitterness. Dry medium body.

Copper color with medium beige head.Nice hoppy aroma but not overpowering. Taste is well mixed between hops and malts but hops take over towards the middle.Sweet on the palate. Finishes with some bitterness and a nice dry hoppy feel.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2003
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 (3625) - 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 (32186) - 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 (1532) - 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 (6714) - 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.
