UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 Tasted at 54 degrees. Very pale tan color, off white head that subsides pretty quickly. My first smell was amazing, fruity, hoppy, honeyish, excellent. I donít know if it overwelhmed my nose, or what, but all attempts to smell afterwards were not anywhere near as sucessful, but the fruit and honey remained. The flavor is just as I remember, complex due to the hops and quite balanced. It is somwhat citrus fruity. I remember it being more hoppy, though. The finish is real nice. Itís dry and flavorful and sticks around, making you want to drink more.

Bottle: Great sweet and citrus hop aroma. Pours a cloudy amber with lots of sediment. Decent white head that lasts a minute or so. Light malt up front with a citrus hop finish. Flavors that exist are balanced very well, but could be a little stronger.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2005 Pours a lovely hazy orange with a fast disappearing white head. Big citrus aroma and that classic hoppy taste....go and buy.

Quintessential cleanliness here. This beer is admirable in the respect that it truly tastes like a tried and true recipe. Very clean all around, perfect balance between the crispness of the hops and the security of the malt. Something like this, which is such a staple, may from time to time seem old or less than adventurous, but it will always taste great.

Bottle. Pours orange with a medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma of straw and citrus. Hops are strong in the flavor, they take hold in the middle and last through the finish. Dry palate. Malt was not very noticeable.

Draft....Great hop aroma.beautiful long lasting white head. Initial taste is great..hoppy, well balanced. Aftertaste was bad. After every sip, i had an aftertaste like it was the last sip in a warm can of CHEAP beer. Couldnt understand why,,i doubt the lines were bad(this was at blind tiger)...and it tasted great at first..but aftertaste very unpleasant..ill give it a try again sometime in a bottle.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2004
A rich orange-copper color with a nice white head that after a few sips is still an 1/8th inch head. Rather hoppy with a dry finish. A first rate brew!

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - NOV 12, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 Bottle - Pours a nice hazy dark orange-amber with a thin white head that evaporates to a "rim" around the glass. Some nice lacing. Aroma is strong of citrusy hops with a hint of yeast/bread and malt thrown in for good measure. Flavor is strongly citrus/pine hops with a balance of sweet maltiness. Medium bitterness that lingers into the finish. Body is a bit too watery. Finish is hoppy and pleasantly long lasting. Very enjoyable ... good thing I can get some more!

Amber color with an orange hue. A large,sustained white head. Aroma is pine/hops. Flavor is a nice mix of malt sweetness balanced by bittering hops. Dry finish. Very nice.
