Copper colored with white head that left a lille lacing on the glass. Hop and citrus aroma. Nice balanced taste with a bit of sharpness from the hops and some hints of grapefruit that linger on the aftertaste. Clean dry mouthfeel. I like it.

Nice big fluffy head, good lacing. The body is light orange-ish in color. Great citrus aroma. Very bold hoppy flavor, reminds me of citrus.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 nice pattern lacing. Golden with slight haze. Aroma is not strong, like lots of pale ales, but flavor is smooth, nice hops without much bitterness. (Drinking it in Massachusetts, maybe not fresh enough- no date label) -re-rating on 12/1/07 - orange with moderate lacing - citrus and floral hops. lightly malted flavor.

A beer I’ve had many a times and it is very consistent. Has a lovely hopiness that actually leaves some room for the malt also. Fresh oranges and citrus fruits in aftertaste. Like.

Nice hop aroma--nothing too special. Fresh and zingy up front with a great note of citrus that persists through the finish. Real strong grapefruit taste. Hoppy and bitter on the finish. Taste lasts on your tongue forever.
side note****I mangage the beer department at a Bottle King. The reason why beers like Anchor Steam and Rogue are so expensive here is the shipping jacks up the price about a dollar a six pack. If they are charging you $9 bucks your being overcharged.

Nice toasty hop flavour. Some fruit (grapefruit). Being that I’m a fan of heavily hopped ipa’s, this beer ranks well.
