Bright amber appearance. Malty, cereal grain aroma. Lacked the intense hop flavor of the bigger American IPA's, but pleasant nonetheless. Lingering, slightly bitter finish. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 29, 2004
Bottled. Misty golden colour with medium to large, creamy smooth white head. No doubt about the hops on this one. Big and brutish hops leap forward and declare the beer as an IPA (in the new world definition of IPA). Relentless hops the blow away any other flavours that might be hiding in there somewhere. Big bitter finish. SpringsLicker (3616) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2004
This is a nice golden colored IPA that carries a creamy white head that laces the glass and can hang around awhile too. The aroma is of lightly toasted caramel, citrus and is clean and refreshing. The flavor comes off as bitter with some malt sweetness underneath. Good dry finish. Very drinkable IPA. labattblueleaf (225) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Slight citrus in the flavor. Don't recognize the pine but I can taste a hint of caramel, although not in every sip. A medium orange in color with cloudiness. A decent IPA. atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Nice copper color with thick head. Mellow hop aroma with an apparent carmel malt presence. It has a very manageable hop flavor with hints o fgrapefruit. Also displays a smooth carmel malt flavor that sits on the toung befor the citric hop flavor takes over.

very light fruity hop aroma, golden with a snow white head, dry super bitter citrusy hops and a tad rubbery Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Definitely high bitterness here. Thin to my palate, dry (as has been said) - a bit unusual in a way I can't quite put a finger on. Malty (not sweet) - this comes in a few minutes after the pour. Has a bit of rotting vegetable aroma. Gave me a shiver (could be the weather). dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Winter Jubilee '04, Slightly hazy amber in color with a medium sized white head. Citrus aroma.Well made IPA with an assertive but not overdone bitterness and hop charcater.Clean,dry, finish. fly (1486) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Two bottles. One seemed as though it was not happy - flocculation? Did I say that right? Do I care? Yes and no. The second was crisp and good, though a bit rough in the bitterness. I much prefer some of their other beers. I do appreciate the gift (I know that a certain someon will read this) MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Clear copper. Head odd-looking, chunky and a weird ashy gray. Nose is bitter, no real fruit or floral character. Same bitterness continues in the flavor, harsh without any corresponding hoppy bite or balancing malts. Not good.
