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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Not a bad IPA - but too light on the hops for me. Also have a gritty/grainy mouthfeel that wasn’t very pleasant.

Wheres the hops? No hop flavor or aroma at all. Not terrible, just not good.
