Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2004
Excellent sticky, sweet hop aroma not sure which variety. Medium bodied, with a rich hop taste and a nice bitter grip. Bitter, dry and sticky with a little pine. Good beer.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Golden in color, moderate head, nice sheet of lace. Aroma is citrus and pine. Flavour is same with some nice malt underneath. Alcohol is well hidden. Clean, smooth and hoppy but not abusive.

On draft at N3rd in Philly: hops, hops, and more hops. Nothing malty or sweet about this brew. A dry beer for hopheads only. Unlike some other IPAs, I didn't feel the alcohol in this one.

rajendra82 (1068) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Good looking clear pale golden brew that pours with a frothy white head, that dissipates to a bubble collar, and leaves a lot of foamy lace. The appearance does not scream IPA, as this could be easily be mistaken for one of the mass brewed lagers. I am used to the East Coast (English Style) IPAs, and the hops used in this beer did not appear to be overly aromatic. The hops did have a typical West Coast style bitter snap and spiciness to them. The beer also suffers from a mouthfeel that is a bit too thin and use of pale malts that are not too sweet and devoid of a lot of complexity. This however is an exceptionally refreshing and drinkable beer that can easily be downed in mass quantities by the side of a pool.

Yellow color with a small white head. Smell of strong hops. Nice hop flavor that lasts and lasts.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Pale yellow, white spit bubbles on top. Smells like the Untouchable Ale. Almost the same beer, a little drier perhaps but not even as good.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2004 Nice smooth nutty ipa. malts and hops are exceptional match for this lite body yet full taste san francisco treat(no pun). Finish is crisp with malty aftertase. Great summer beer.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Golden colored with a mediumsized white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Fairly light bodied, with taste of grapefruit and pine, malt is understated and beer is somewhat unbalanced. Quite drinkable, but there are many better IPA's out there.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
Well like the description said it was hoppy and left the scene without a trace - but I enjoy the lingering bitterness of a good IPA, so this wasn't a selling point for me. A basic golden beer with the requisite white head that came and went too quickly. Not a bad grapefruity, piney beer but not a must have either.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Golden color, very light for this style. This beer has a huge fresh hoppy aroma that hits the nose the second the bottle is cracked. But don't get too anxious, the flavor is fairly bland and fizzy. You can taste the hops, but there's no bitterness or anything else really. The body is is quite lacking, way too light for an IPA. This beer is not what I would consider an IPA, maybe a bitter instead. Imagine taking a bottle of club soda, putting a couple of hop cones in and shaking it up... that's what this beer tastes like.
