Pleasant mildly hopped IPA. Crisp and dry as the label says, but not as hoppy as I’d like. Rated 8/14/02 bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Ripe apricot color. Hop, but not citrus, aroma. Hint of apricot flavor, prominent bitterness. Clean. Apricot followed by sweetness, finish is mildly bitter. Just a delight. Finish isn’t really dry, but seems to not be sweet either. Well balanced? Delightful. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2013

Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, light carmel, lemon rind and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of bread, straw, light carmel and a hint of citrus with a crisp lightly bitter finish. A very boring IPA!!!

In 1989, when this beer was still known as Ballard Bitter, and I was almost 21, this was my first microbrew. I was hooked, and eagerly awaited the opportunity to try it again should it ever move back East. My how times have changed! Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
(draft) Lightly hazed straw body topped by a white head. Aroma is meidum sweet, grapefruit, light biscuit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light biscuit, caramel. Light-medium body, some crispness. Good transition beer.
Yellow fizzy ale with white head, which laced the glass nicely. Light malty aroma with barely any hops. Malty beer, almost like a lager or a Keith’s, very crisp, but without any of the expected hops. Oily mouthfeel. Bottle.CNY Brewfest Feb. 5 2005. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2003
