kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2007
I cant tell you how disappointing this was....maybe I believed the advertising but I was extremely disappointed! Pours a cloudy orange with little to no head, it tastes ok but not as good as youd expect. The words that popped into my mind were...raw and unaccomplished, more like an average homebrew than a commercial beer. It is citrusy and hoppy but it just doesnt tie together well.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Bottle shared with Zinister. Pours a sharp cheddar orange with a nice, off-white head. Aroma is straw and grapefruit. Flavor is stale flower with blunt hops. Watery mouthfeel. Blech; proof that a corked bottle doesnt mean whats inside is worth a darn. Oh well. K-State beat the hell outta t.u. that day, so it wasnt a total loss.

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Flowery & grapefruity. Good and hoppy but I dont dig the sediment or yeast flavor.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Bottle. Murky light orange body with a inch dense head. Nose-clean, unsticky hops, mild dry fruits. Taste-medium bitter, soapy, over toasted malts, low to medium alcohol on the back end, biting CO2 on the back end, unsweet grapefruit, pear, light wood and tannins, low key sweetness, hop bitterness is just right. What can I say? Its an English IPA. Everything is good and solid, just muted and low key. I imagine that this is what the original IPAs tasted like. Not mind blowing but nice enough. Soapy, greasy mouthfeel.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Cloudy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma has a grassy-citrus-apple mix to it. Flavor is dominated by grassy, earthy, citrusy hops with some subtle grainy malt. Nice and drinkable, but the hops just arent assertive enough. Still nice to try a more "traditional" IPA from the UK.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle I picked up at BevMo. Nice rich orange color with HUGE head...nice lacing as well. Solid hops and floral notes with grassy aromas as well. Body is lighter than I would have thought.Good IPA from other side of the pond.

dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2007
This beer pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head leaving a little lacing down the sides. The aroma is very very light grassy and hoppy and not much else! Realt this beer has a good flavor, but not a great one. There are much better ipas out there but I would for sure have this one again. Cheers!

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Pours hazy orange-amber with a huge white head. Herbal, grassy aroma with light brine notes. Sweet flavor until the end, which is mostly hop bitterness. The hop flavors are the same as those found in the aroma, only with a citrus-sweet tang. Great English IPA.

egajdzis (6377) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Poured a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of grass, some skunk, and light toffee as well. Taste of caramel, some skunk, herb, bitter, grassy, noble hops, with light bread, and low bitterness in the finish.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Thanks to TomGibson for this one. Pour a translucent golden amber with a medium off white bubbly head. Aroma was kind of spicy, fruity, sweet malts and some caramel. Flavor was earthy, a bit floral, some citrus and caramel malt.
