GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 Deep amber with reddish & apricot highlites and a thin off white head with average lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma but with some peppery spiciness and malt in there as well. Extremely well balanced flavor with plenty of robust hops, malt, apple sweetness and a little light toast. Crisp mouthfeel and finish. Just the right amount of bitterness for an IPA that could keep going down all night long. This is a winner.

Film of head, decent lacing. Amber clear color, nose of nice floral hops, fresh & crispy, maybe some caper note? Taste malty, balanced with a mild bitterness amount. Some chocolatey malt & more bitterness seeps through, very balanced & tasty.

Bottle. Should have more hop aroma. Nice medium golden color which could be a little darker. Slightly hazy but OK for style. Good hop bitterness in the flavor, although I am a hop-head and would prefer a little more. Interesting in that this beer is a bit malty but yet the carbonation gives it a nice clean crisp palate. Overall an IPA that one could drink alot of without too much hops or alcohol.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2004
This beer pours a nice deep brown. The smell is of obvious dry hopping, which is essential for a good IPA. The taste is well balanced with sweet malts and hops. I would like more citrus hops in this one (cascade/centennial). Very good beer though

Bottled. Golden with hoppy, fruity and sweetish aroma. A bit too sweer with notes of grapefruit.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - DEC 26, 2004
(12 oz bottle) Hoppy, lightly roasty nose is certainly a good lead in to this somewhat unusual IPA. The dominant flavor isnt really hops, though the moderately hops has solid presence and contribution. Instead, what comes out most for me is the lightly roasty flavor that really comes to the forefront in the long-lasting, bitter finish. Medium bodied, but also fairly clean and crisp. Medium golden color with a slightly hazy appearance. Average size to the off-white head on the pour, settling to and retaining a thin layer that leaves some spotty and patchy lacing on the glass. Decent IPA, but not one of my favorites.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2004
A very nice pale IPA. This one is easy to drink with a nice hop kick at the end. I would call this a "session" IPA if anything. Wonderfully citrus nose, but just lacks a bit of fullness on the tongue. Nicely done in any case.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pours an amber/gold color with a small but lasting head. Citrus and grapefruit aroma, not much malt. Taste fruity, bitter, very light malt, and like PorterPounder I do sense an essence of mint at the very end of the long, bitter finish. Interesting beer, not world class--could use some more malt backbone--but quite quaffable if I do say so myself.

$5.99 6pack. Very nice IPA. Golden body with white head. Hard to pass this up and will always have a few in the fridge.

PorterPounder (7620) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. Medium copper pour, decent white head, fair amount of lacing. Typical west coast grapefruity hoppiness, which is expected and not unappreciated, its just that these are all tasting quite the same - but will not mark this one down for that!. An excellent example of the style - clean, crisp and sharp, like a West Coast IPA should be. A bit of light spearmint undertone separates this one from the mases. Good example of the Amercian IPA style.
