Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 500 ml can: This is a good session ale. Clear amber with a sudsy white head, it has a caramel and bready malt aroma with some juicy apples and a hint trace of herbal hops. The flavor is caramel with a bit of nuttiness. The light hop tastes come through mainly on the finish. This isnt anything great, but I can see putting a few of these away on a lazy afternoon.

DocLock (10458) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Large can. Pours dark straw with medium, uniform, off-white head. Smells of bready malt, subdued hops, and some fruit/berries. Tastes bready-malty, with some corn flake elements, and some finishing, subdued hops and a slight metallic twinge which gets worse as it warms. This one is on the fringe of being decent, but it comes up second best.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with a white head. Weak hoppy aroma and a hoppy bitter light malty taste. Medium body and a light sweet finish.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Aluminum can from Albertsons. Wahoo! When I saw the big old yellow and green cans I just had to try them...then I saw she charged me $7. I almost changed my mind....and in hindsight I certainly should have. Aroma is all aluminum, plus a hint of the skunk fluid held within. Yes---I know this isnt an American IPA, but they couldve at least thrown some of those Challenger hops into the boil....it did no good to just leave them in the sack next to the kettle. Maybe something akin to maltiness in the taste, but Im not sure. Id ask my wife, but I can see shes already at the sink pouring hers out....damn, she beat me to it. Stay clear of this mess.

joergen (27272) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005. Orange coloured with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel. Sweet flavour of malts with notes of grain and hops.

Darkover (1535) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Dark copper color with thick white head. Weak hop aroma. Slight flavors of malt, butter and hops. Very water and almost flat.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Smooth like most English ales. A little weaker than it could have been but still quite drinkable. Buttery, malty, and only slightly bitter which I find strange for an ale called an IPA. Aroma is caramel and resin hops. Color is a dark amber and has a wonderful large head. Aftertaste is a little sour.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Copper. Frothy, off-white head. Not much aroma. Not much taste. Medium body. Dry aftertaste. Definitely not an IPA. Very drinkable. Not bad at all, but at the same time not good, either. Would pair excellent with extremely spicy food, the kind thats hot enough where you dont have a chance to really enjoy your beer.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2005
(in large 660 ml bottle) Hardly any head on a dark yellow body. Tastes like an IPA, but not exciting at all. It a slightly under-average beer, good only for average consumption, but not exceptional; far from that. Quite ordinary.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Not a great but not bad at all. But for the style, as a real IPA, not an American IPA its probably a little south of par. I took a few sips out of the can before going into the glass, and to be honest it tastes better from the can, I guess it calls to my inner soccer hooligan. The malt is almost too English, the hops are sluggish and only give a dry finish. However, if I needed a session beer that I could just crush during sporting events or judicial proceedings I think this would due.
