Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
Golden caramel, little head, bur good lace. Sweet, sweet hoppy aroma. Fairly thin on the palate and the taste simply doesnít rock my boat. Weakest IPA Iíve had so far.

The aroma comes across extremely unbalanced to my nose. It is all perfume, in the aroma and flavor. Overall too light and fruity, and the perfume is really making the whole beer come across unbalanced. A slight disappointment.

California beers are great!!! Iím sure this one wonít disappoint. Terrific IPA. Awesome hops, good malts, clean citrus flavor that makes you want to drink beer. Wow, this is very very good. Donít know what youíre having tonight but a rare few are having anything better than this. Again, a beer that I feel is seriously underrated. NoCal this is simply a gem. No need to hide this one anywhere. Great freaking beer!!!

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2004
12 oz, tulip. Toasted bread malt (L); perfume and herb hops (M); green apple and pear aromas. Small, creamy, white, diminishing head. Clear yellow-gold body. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: again with the perfume hops...at least this beer has redeeming qualities in the flavor and mouthfeel.

Suttree (5420) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2004 First of all, a really cool bottle. Very stylish. Light gold, decent sized white head. Resiny, cedery aroma. Woodsy, piney flavors, with a citrusy touch at the finish. Clean and easy drinkiní IPA here. This one was right after Yulesmith in our tasting, an unenviable position for sure, but it ended up holding up nicely. Well made session IPA. Thanks to Drunkasaskunk for this one.

Large offwhite head, good retention and plenty of lace that wont quit. Pale blond color unfortunately. Nice piney nose, a little rubbery. Med/light body, sorta thin. Piney, citrusy hop flavors with very faint malt notes. Finish is dry. Ultimately, a watery brew though.

yet another IPA, i cant get enough of them. amber colored pour with a nice white head with some floatys in it. smells very citrusy, orange and grapefruit like. refreshing flavor, a nice easy drinking sort of lighter feeling ipa. very nice though, taste has a hint of pine in it. i didnt think the hops register the way the bottle claims they do, but thats just me. an awesome ipa.

SpringsLicker (3233) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2004
A beautiful golden yelow beer appears under a creamy white head when you pour this into a glass. Immediatly the citrusy fresh hop aroma hits your nose. You donít have to search for the hops in this one, theyíre all over the place. Yes, itís out of balance on the hop side, but this beer pulls it off nicely. Crisp refreshing palate and you guessed it... a bitter finish. Excellent choice for the hophead.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large white head that lingers nicely and leaves great lacing. Flavor and aroma feature hops - lots of them. Aroma is a bit dusty, with orange and grapefruit peel notes. Flavor is dry, not much sweetness with big hop kick and long bitter finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy carbonation. Good beer, but could use a bit more maltiness to balance the hops.
