I’m always leery when everyone else praises a beer for qualities I just don’t see. More specifically, the aroma of this beer is slightly sour rather than hoppy, there is no head, no lacing, moderate carbonation and a hop flavor that diminishes quicker than it starts. It really has some Belgian qualities to it, so perhaps it’s skunked?? This bottle did take a plane ride, so I’ll have to try a fresh one. In a nutshell, not impressed.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 A lot more like a standard British Pale Ale than an India Pale, and lacking somewhat in character, basically just consists of a wash of bland maltiness and a vague tanginess thereafter. Totally on the same level with Bass, Newcastle, etc.
