Aroma: 8/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
A good IPA. Lots of hops both in the aroma and on the palate. Hop bitteress tends to overpower all else in the mouth. Good lasting bitterness on the finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2002
Big bold brash hoppy bitterness dominates this fine pale ale. Malt is adequate to balance this one, but don't mistake this one for anything a malt lover would want to touch.
