bottle. poured a nearly clear golden color. off-white foamy head, fairly long lasting. distinct smell of pine and something like grapefruit. very drinkable, but probably because of its age. still a good beer.

On draft at the Stone Winter Storm. Aroma was sweet; citrus hops, pine and fruit. Flavor was much of the same. Found it very complex, and unusual for an IPA. Mellow, smooth flavor, despite the complexity. Very good.

Strong hoppy flavor. Head disappates quickly with some lace. Very strong taste, gets better as time goes by. Pours a light orange color. Average in my opinon.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
[Sampled October 2004, 5 years old] Huge thanks to cquiroga for sharing this gem. An unclear amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and overripe fruit. The flavor is also quite sweet and again with alcohol and overripe fruit, prunes and peaches coming thru. An OK brew - but impossible to tell it is (was) and IPA - now it is more like a Barley Wine.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Thanks to Cquiroga for this one. It pours with an orange-gold body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma and flavor are slightly sweet with notes of apricot and an over ripe fruit note, as well as, a touch of pine. Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Citrus and fermented fruit w/ hints of barnyard ( i think that it went south) on the nose... Big bitter, citrus, w/ soury fermented fruit... Major effervescence and light, it poured a cloudy orange w/ yellow hues, very thin head and slight lacing.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2005
This beer comes courtesy of Chris Quiroga at the welcome visitors gathering at Obriens. It would have been awesome to have tried this fresh, but simply to even have the opportunity to try this was awesome in its own right. This rare beer pours a golden color with a soapy white head which left a fairly long lasting layer of lacing. The aroma is hoppy but surprisingly sweet and caramel like. The flavor is caramelly and sweet with some hop residue here, but you can tell that this is well past its prime. Some orangey peel in the finish... you can tell this was awesome upon release...but even now its still shows some verve of its greatness.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Bottle found at bev mo in 2004?!...!?!?!?! I know.... It sounds crazy....Pours a hazy amber hue with a small white head. Aromas of raisins, pine and pepper. Flavors of old hops, maple, and is fairly malty.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 6, 2005
thanks to cquiroga for sharing. Understandably, this IPA is past its prime, but it’s still nice. It tasted like a very mellow IPA. I’m sure that at it’s release, ’mellow’ wouldn’t be a word used to have described it.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Pours a hazy copper with a lacey white head. Semi-oxidized, toffee caramel aroma is completely bereft of any noticeable hops. Body has a decent malty thickness and complex palate. Virtually no hop flavor left, but still has a pleasant bitterness there. Many thanks to cquiroga for giving me a chance to try this very rare brew!
