Nowhere near as good as their Pale. Oddly bland, yet nevertheless drinkable. And, just as a public service announcement, let me say that having a couple beers after a good drop of Slivovitz will give you a really bad headache, without getting you drunk at all. Slivovitz alone is great; beer alone can be transcendent; together, no. heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2002
One dimensional bitterness -- very flat tasting, even when it warmed up to room temperature, the hop aroma and flavors still stayed flat and uninteresting. Vaguely pleasant, just not very exciting. omhper (25159) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2002
Amber coloured. Dry, straightforward ale. Medium bodied, average bitterness.

Big flavor and alcohol sensation at first, but then it was like it became watery. Relatively clean & easy to quaff, though a little rough-edged in the finish. Hop presence is a little below par... ok, well below par; not enough hop bitterness, flavor, or aroma. And my other complaint is that I found it a little gloppy and cloying. I hear their Pale Ale is much better. joet (2607) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2001
An Old World IPA example with dampened spicy hops and lack of clean bite typical of the West Coast examples.

A less than typical IPA. Not enogh hops or malt. Their pale ale, in my opinion, is way better. Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2001
Contract brewed by Otter Creek, this beer has a distinctive Ottter Creek flavour. Piney/earthy hop aromas. Good assertive bittering, but little balance. Not a bad beer, just not too exciting. duggyfresh (3) - USA - AUG 19, 2001 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 I had to quickly re-rate this beer to all of nothing because It's now aparently shipped 2500 miles to me which is not a good thing for a beer advertizing ECOBAGS(TM) and *ONLY* ECOBAGS(TM) on their website. I've got a lot of great hops, water and beers within a few miles. No need to support the ECOBREW 3 time zones away! tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2001
Not a bad IPA - but too light on the hops for me. Also have a gritty/grainy mouthfeel that wasn’t very pleasant. aledrinkerLS (101) - New Brunswick, USA - JUL 29, 2001
Wheres the hops? No hop flavor or aroma at all. Not terrible, just not good.
