NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Reddish-orange, mostly clear (filtered?), disappearing head and light carbonation. Aroma is equal parts sugary malt, sort of like pound cake, and citric hoppiniess that is lightly acidic. The flavor profile is dominated by a pungent, sharp bitterness. There's a bit of malt sweetness here I think, but more in the needle-in-a-haystack sense. Rather harsh and reminiscent of bile. The aromatic hops are quite nice, and I'm pleasantly reminded of the Arrogant Bastard, but I find this too acidic and bitter to be all that enjoyable. I actually prefer the Ruination to this one.

The holy grail of the class. There is a challenger noted earlier this evening but yet, this one remains my highest rated pure IPA. Wonderful concoction.

Maris (956) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2014
From a 355ml bottle on 12/7/2014. I was absolutely stoked to find world renowned brew in a new bottle-o just up the road. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small to medium fine white head. Has a lovely aroma featuring caramel, grapefruit, lemon and a hint of passionfruit. The one screams quality from the first sip. There’s a substantial caramel malt background off which loads of citrus and stone fruit hang (orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, peach), with a dash of pear as well. The hops are satisfyingly assertive, with oodles of lingering resin and grapefruit kicking around. Has a fullish body and medium carbonation. This is a supremely balanced IPA and totally deserves its big rep imo. A truly superb hop monster.

bigda83 (113) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy, but mainly clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma is hops, grapefruit, pine, some lemon and maybe a little tropical. Mildy dank. Taste is bitter with grapefruit and pine coming out. Medium body, dry on the finish, overall solid IPA.

Maxbier (142) - Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Pours slightly hazey with white head. Aroma is citrus hop. Tast ia strong malt up front, followed quickly with lots of pine & citrus hops and bitterness. Plenty of bitterness all the way through the finish. Great great IPA. Thank goodness this bear came out when it did, and thank goodness it is still available after all these years.
