BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
12oz Bottled 10Jun04 Pours a clear copper color with a head comprised of miniscule bubbles that settles down to a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, fruit, dough and yeast notes. Flavor is an even bitterness that at first seems as though may be more powerful than it actually turns out. Some good hop flavors but also slightly metallic. Body is medium and well carbonated. Leaves a nice webbing of lace around the glass. Overall a decent IPA but nothing outstanding.

muzzlehatch (4877) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear light copper/dark gold. Medium decaying head. Big, big grapefruit acid in the nose, bit of honey backing it up. Toasty, slightly oaky in the body, much citrus and pine, great body supportive of the full bitter flavor yet supple enough to be highly drinkable. Hard not to guzzle this, one of the better "regular" IPAs Ive had lately.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Pours hazy copper with a thin off-white head. Classic pine/grapefruit hops aroma is accompanied by detergent and toasty malt, and beckons for a sip...which I oblige, and find a pretty thin-bodied beer that still manages to carry a nice piney/grapefruity hops punch, along with just enough biscuity malt to keep this fan of barley content. Bitter aftertaste.

Brewtopia 2004: Cloudy orange with some small chunks under a small with head. Grapefruit aroma with a bit of grass, full oily mouthfeel, starts and ends bitter.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2004 Clear copper color with small to medium sized head. Taste had a bit of a chalky, powder consistancy. Nice hop flavor and aroma. Pine and grapefruit was also nicely mixed in to make this very balanced and an above average IPA.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2004
This beer is hoppy. Its dry. And its bitter. Pours a plae copper with a small but lasting head. Aroma is subtle but hops emerge as it warms. Taste has a little bit to it, and the beer lives up to its name.

heemer77 (5310) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Little head on top of a light copper colored beer. Simple aroma of orange peels. Has low bitterness for an IPA. There are lots of malts to balance ths out.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottle pours a lightly hazy golden color, small frothish head, attractive lacing, but virtually no carbonation. Very hoppy on the nose, slight citrus and pine too. Forwardly hoppy, lasts throught the middle, but near the end it diminishes rather quickly. I pick up an ever so slight maltiness near the finish. Unfortunately, the body and mouthfeel in this one area somewhat thin. Quite watery on the finish in fact. Slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. A decent example, but it needs to be a bit heavier. Thanks goes out to DavidP for the trade!

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Aroma of sweet citrus fruits and malt. Yellow/amber color with small, diminishing head. Bitter? Kinda (I expected something more because the of face of the woman on the bottle. Man, Id hate to have to wake up to her every morning...) Lasting hop and citrus flavor; dry. Good IPA.
