Nice orange color. For an IPA, it is weaker than I expected, which is good because I'm not crazy about super-hoppy beer yet. Bitter aftertaste, but to be expected from an IPA. If you like this style, it is a decent, watered-down version.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Citrus and hop aroma with a malty background, slightly skunky. Dark amber color, completely translucent. Silky head and sticky lacing. Flavor matches the aroma. Dry and sour finish. Overall: This is an IPA? Hehe, no it isn't, not near enough hops, tasted more like anchor steam.

Interesting smell. It tasted more like the Anchor Steam than a pale ale. Worth a try.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Floaties. Orange marmalade appearance, no head. Citrus, spice, pungent. Jumps from the glass. Hoppy, sour and metallic. Acidic and a lot of carbonation. Better than some.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Hazy golden, not much head. Aroma is citrus and elder, a little sour.Flavor is both malty and hoppy, and has a bitter finish

Amber coloring. Little/No Head. Very Hoppy Aroma and Taste. Sweet. Given the percentile, I’d have to disagree and place it as an above average beer...but little better.

mjg74 (2787) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours a nce dark golden color. Has a really nice hoppy aroma. Has a hoppy bite, not overpowering but nice and balanced. Good quality IPA, not the best but good.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2005 A solid, refreshing alternative to mass produced pale lagers. A pleasant, mildly hopped aroma with a clear amber coloring, this brew slides down easily. It hits the spot anytime.

Golden, honey, copper color (whatever you want to call it) slightly hazy, wi th a white head leaving a nice lacing. Essentially fruity aroma (mostly grapefruit but also peach and apricot) and lightly yeasty. Flavor dominated by the bitterness of hops, with citrus and a touch of pepper. Malty finish once the bitterness starts dissipating. Pretty good pale, definitively not my favorite kind though.
