An Old World IPA example with dampened spicy hops and lack of clean bite typical of the West Coast examples.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A less than typical IPA. Not enogh hops or malt. Their pale ale, in my opinion, is way better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Contract brewed by Otter Creek, this beer has a distinctive Ottter Creek flavour. Piney/earthy hop aromas. Good assertive bittering, but little balance. Not a bad beer, just not too exciting.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 I had to quickly re-rate this beer to all of nothing because It's now aparently shipped 2500 miles to me which is not a good thing for a beer advertizing ECOBAGS(TM) and *ONLY* ECOBAGS(TM) on their website. I've got a lot of great hops, water and beers within a few miles. No need to support the ECOBREW 3 time zones away!

Not a bad IPA - but too light on the hops for me. Also have a gritty/grainy mouthfeel that wasn’t very pleasant.

Wheres the hops? No hop flavor or aroma at all. Not terrible, just not good.

An IPA with barely any hops or bitterness - great idea! Wow.

Great roasted malt character and beautiful deep copper color. Great hop flavor and aroma. A tad bit weak on the bitterness for my taste, but I’ve not yet found a beer that satisfies my craving for hops. Minimal head with some lacing. A fine IPA, and possibly a new favorite for me.
