Good gold/orange color, with slight citrus nose. Like Volgon said, a little watery on the mouth feel, but finishes very stong with the bitterness. I have to say it was a little off balance.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pours a pale amber with a very thin white head that fled quickly. Pleasing floral hop aromas, some citrus and malts. Bitterness starts the flavor going into a some lemon, finishing bitter once again. Pretty nice IPA

Clear and golden with a decent white head. Sweet, grassy, hoppy aroma with a slight fish sauce smell. Good body with a strong malt presence on which is hung a decent hop profile and perfect bitterness. Tame by today’s standards but well executed and pleasant.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Head that looks more like a Pale Ale then an India Pale Ale. Nice golden color with so so lacing. The aroma has malt, apricot and a bit of citrus. The taste is more like a Pale Ale but with a bit more hops in it. It has a bitterness which did not begin well, but got better as the beer went along. Not bad and worth the try.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Golden orange color with a medium off-white head. The aroma was full of citrusy tones and floral tones. The flavor was on the sweet side...bready character with a hint of hops bitterness in the aftertaste. The feel was a little thin...quite crisp on the tongue...semi-dry finish.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Thanks to degrath for giving me this beer.

Copper colored body, full white head. The aroma brings a grassy lemon, pine like astringency. The flavor brings a crusty sweet bread maltyness, but that is overpowered by the bittering pinesap tartness. Blaaaaa… nothing exciting here folks.

It’s been a while since I’ve had this one: Some spicey, floral aromas in the nose, a note of sweet fruitiness, too; nice pour yeilds an ample cap of creamy, nicley lacing head; very slightly body and moderate carbonation; sweet, nutty front end followed by a building, citric/floral bittering; the malt really needs some more presence, the hopping is adequate and tasty; not bad

Ratman197 (15632) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle poured a clear light copper with a yellowish head. Aromas of biscuits, carmel, and some grassy and earthy notes. Palate is medium body a bit reiny and a little dry in the finish. Flavors of biscuity malt and earthy hopswith a bitter, dry finish.

heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2008 Pours a medium gold body with a little note or orange. The head is thick and white. Teh aroma is not subtle at all. It is full of grass, orange peels and some light fresh bread crust. Very nice smell. The taste is full of orange peels and some burnt toast. There is a hint of flowers here, but it is overpowered by the straight up hops. This needs a little more balance.
