Pours light amber...smells a little hoppy and floral...not much to it in the palate...they say its an IPA...ok... Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Cask-conditioned (Gravity) at the Great British Beer Festival, Kensington Olympia, London. (Thursday Session). This beer was actually quite nice on cask, in the typical American IPA style. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
clear, pale amber hue, 1/2" silky white head, with copious bubbles.
Aroma: soapy, and slightly sweet, minor fruit, muted peach, muffled apricot, nothing to speak of, really...
Taste: more soap! a bit floral, herbal, I can taste the hops on the tongue, (Centennial?), but they are so small, and disappear so quickly, that it barely counts! There’s a cameo of spiciness,(a hint of ginger, even cinnamon) and a fairly decent initial texture,but the body is too, too thin for my taste, and this brew’s miniature charms drift away like a leaf in an autumn gust. It’s not terrible at all, but I can’t really see that "IPA" belongs on the label, not anymore. I remember it being bigger and bolder than this!

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. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear medium amber with light but opaque white head. White sugar and cat litter nose. Cardboardy, sugary attack and mid-palate. Light body, soft carb. No finish. Company says "it’s cat litter in a glass."

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass at flemmings in sarasota. Pours gold/yellow with almost no head. Aroma is floral with very little trace of hops. Favors are grapefruit and floral citrus. Extremely mediocre ipa. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2001
Weird for an IPA. Sourish bitter style flavor with a decent dose of hops. From tap so maybe the bottle version is better but this just made me not want another. Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 3, 2001
not discernably different from SN Bigfoot. Pungent hop flavoring is at least at a tolerable level. Tinted red/copper color, white persistent head, with a very hoppy, earthy aroma. Strong hop flavoring, some maltiness, and somewhat metallic. Not too pleasant. Panzuriel (2371) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2003
Decent beer with an okay hop aroma. Some hops in the flavor. Somewhat tart. Just alittle lacking in over all beer experience. Somewhat sad. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 29, 2003
Slight citrus/bitter taste. a bit thin mouthfeel. Nothing special for an IPA, certainly you can find many better
