Thi surprise of the lineup. I gave never tried this beer and the dry-hop nose and flavoring was very nice. This was the beer with the real nose here and we do travel on our noses ... a segacy of the vineyards. Very nice Ale.

Sweet, licorice, with a citrus aroma. Strange. Well balance. clear, coppery. Unique

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Nice copper colour and a frothy but dissipating head. I really looked forward to trying this beer after having their Steam Ale last week. Lasting fruity and flower aroma. Balance of malt with a slight hop finish and lingering floral bouquet across the palate.

Rich orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of musky fruit and floral hops. Flavour of orange rinds and a bit of malt, giving way to a bitter hop finish. I’m not exactly a hop-head, but I really enjoyed this one.

Long time fave of mine. When in dioubt I head for this "comfort ale". Think that one of the heads of the US craft movement is owed its dues.

Copper colour. Hoppy, floral nose. Taste of citrus, mild hops. Finishes with a long hoppy bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2004 Rerate 2/27/2004. I'm afraid my 2nd bottle is a bit stale (it's in a 1 pint 6oz bottle), but it's certainly better than the 3.1 I gave it earlier. Yeasty nose, reminds me a Belgian with cascase hops. Smooth light caramel flavor with subdued C-hops. Nicely bitter.

Light, pleasant hop taste. It wasn't as overbearing as some IPAs I've had, which is definitely a good thing in my book. I picture this beer as a good thirst-quenching beer.

Not the best IPA I’ve had, but pretty damn good. Delicate, buttery/hoppy bouquet belies a refreshing amber ale with splendid carbonation and perfectly timed hops bite. Another please!
