AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2005
A deeep,rich bronze color with a dense, whipcream head. Aroma of sulphur, bubblegum, and passion fruit. A bubblegum-like flavor I often attribute to a combination of very hard water (sulphate) and ale yeast fruit. Some viscosity from the malt and a solid, long acidity into the finish with a tropical fruit flavor.

Bottle. Well done IPA. Medium amber in color, clear. Scant white head forms but remains for the duration. Some lacing left behind. Aroma is rich in malt and hop. Grapefruit and other citrus aromas mix nicely with a caramelly sweetness. Medium bodied. Well balanced with hops providing a nice long lived effect. Nicely done.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2005
This beer pours an orangey amber color with a razor thin white soapy head and little to no lacing. The aroma is unbelievably sweet for an IPA... Tangerines, nectarines, malts... but where are the hops...surprising sweetnesses and very floral. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, fairly dry and mildly bitter. Strangely enough once again, more malt than anything. Significant amounts of fruit....tang, tangerines, oranges, florals, citrus and cardboardy sticky malts. Some hints of pine and grass, but very weak. Might as well label this what it really is.. an American Pale Ale. Dry, sticky, cardboardy astringently bitter finish...acceptable session beer, but not my cakewalk.

Yeah, not bad. Rich and strong in hops, and not bad overall. What else can you say? If youve been on this block a while, you know your IPAs from your sidewalk chalk.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Pour gave tons of head. Aroma has some odd spice notes, almost soapy. Flavor is also somewhat soapy, not very india of a pale ale. I should have passed on this one.

mjg74 (3079) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light amber color. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some malt present. A little sweet. Flavour is a balance of hops and malts. Finish is rather bitter, but over done. Good IPA, but not anything special.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Nicely done, a coppered bodied brew with a heft yellowish head and an aroma of orange blossoms and rose petals. The solid, caramel malt backbone has a bit of a juicy, citric fruit taste topped with some mild floral hop bitterness. This is kind of an easy-going, relaxed IPA, but very tasty and refreshing.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours copper color and clear with a small foamy white head. Aroma is sweet ripe fruits - orange and peach - a bit of honey with nice counterpoint of floral and earthy hops. Flavor also very sweet, again ripe fruits with lemon grass and spruce hops and a hint of pungent spice in the aftertaste. Medium body and very smooth and mellow carbonation. Good, drinkable IPA.

IslandHaole (1252) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 18, 2005
On tap @ Pike: Light Amber with a medium beige head. Citrus fruit in the nose, sweet, lemony, pine....nice hop flavor too. One of their better brews!

maltdog (623) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draft @Pike Pub. Clear copper with very small bubbles, Wispy head has great staying power and leaves lots of sticky lace. Biscuit, hop, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Fruity malt and piney hop flavors. Medium body, smooth, zesty. Long resiny, bittersweet finish. Bitterness is a little harsh. Overall, a solid American IPA.
