UPDATED: MAY 16, 2004 Hazy medium amber with a small head- too small for an IPA. Hefty floral scent- smells very delicious! tastes a lot like it smalles, but a bit too malty. I’d prefer less malts and more hops, with the same flavor undertones. I do enjoy this beer... Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2004
Bottled version. Fruity, flowery hop aroma, some light malt sweetness with notes of pineapple, lemon and sugar. Medium copper color, very hazy being heavily sedimented for the style with a slight, subsiding head. Clean, bitter flavor profile, citric and floral with enough maltiness to give it a medium body or so. Effervescent palate, perhaps more on the thin side. Fairly standard British-style IPA but refreshingly hoppy. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2004
Pours an amber-orange color. Head fades quickly, minimal lacing. Aroma is indeed piney but not really intense. Perhaps balanced to well?? Would have preferred more hop aroma and taste. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 21, 2004
Much nicer than the Spotted Cow IPA - a pleasant mild, maltiness goes along with the hops. Some sweetness and citrus. Not really all that bitter, but rather quite lemony. Enjoyable. Thanks Michael. KBeer (117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2004
An amberish color with a small head. It has a slightly more bitter taste than I would have expected. There are hints of citrus.

Medium amber color. Surprisingly light aroma hops and no hint of malt in the nose. Flavor is dry and hoppy, but becomes a bit sweeter as the glass warms. fair head formation; fair to poor retention and lace. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2004
Fat toffeeish butter in fashionable orange and grapefruit zests…Dusty earth undermines the stout sweetness and somewhat oily body…A resinous bitterness meets slight chalk and then retreats into dry lemon wedges…Good flavors but lack of cohesion for my tastes… Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Clear amber body, smallish white head. Sweet candy aroma, butterscotch, vinegar and oily character. Different to say the least. Taste is mildly sour, buttery, grapefruity with trace of lemon and a restrained bitterness. IPAs are not obviously not my favorite style and this one appears to me even simpler than most of its brethrens. Rather thin bodied too. Sorry Psychprof!

Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a big frothy head that tightens and stays around. Nose is Floral and pine with a bit of malt character. Taste is dominated by fuggles hops with some nutty malts underneath. Full mouthfeel and with a dry bitter finish. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Bottle. Pours cloudy orangey amber with a decent white head that reduced to a ring and thin film of bubbles. Piney hop aroma with a hint of honey. Predominant hop flavors give this a high pucker factor but it's a little light on malts for my liking and finishes watery. Moderate body and carbonation.
