Very good IPA -- a nice orange-yellow appearance with a creamy white head -- quality hop aroma without overpowering, and a well rounded flavor that is smoothly bitter with a clean finish.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2005 Couleur orangée pale, apparence translucide, quelques petits dépôts sont visibles parmi le liquide. Abondante mousse blanche et crémeuse restant longuement parmi nous. Aromes tout en douceur mais expressifs rappelant de doux pamplemousses roses et léger caramel. Une touche de grain et de légumes style céleri devient alors apparente en se réchauffant. Épaisseur moyenne, texture pleine et légèrement huileuse par son abondance de résines de houblon. Un bel équilibre en bouche, suffisamment de malt, finale se dirigeant vers une amertume plus prononcée rappelant davantage l’écorce que la chair d’agrumes et s’éteignant sur une note de réglisse rouge. Bouteille LCBO, Mai 2005

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Hazy copper. Big, bubbly, off-white head. Moderate malt and plenty of floral aromatic hops in the nose. Creamy malt and hopped up bitterness, dry aftertaste. Medium body, smooth with just enough carbonation. Very good.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2005
pours copper in color with a fluufy white head, aroma of sweet malts and citrusy fruit, good fruit taste with a hooppy bitter bite on first taste, then its more of a relaxed bitter easy finish, another good anchor beer.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 re-rate: murky dark gold with a large creamy head. nice fresh citrus hop aroma. flavor is bitter and hoppy with lemon, grapefruit, and light caramel. sharp, fizzy carbonation. light-medium bodied. 6/3/8/3/16 crisp citrus hops aroma. amber color with white head. very impressive considering i didnt like their steam beer. this ale has the typical anchor bitterness but a better floral character.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Hop tinged aroma that is more buttery than anything. Slick mouthfeel is anchored by caramel malts and nice bittering hops. I could see myself drinking a few of these.

One of my refrigerator staples. Nice dark amber color, caramel tinted head. Balanced hops with a crisp finish.
