COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle... Dark, hazy, burnt orange ale with a large, fluffy, khaki head. Terrific retention. The nose is herbal and floral with notes of black tea, carnations and tangerine. The flavor leans a touch on the bitter side of balance and is citrusy and dry. The cascades wash away almost all signs of residual sweetness. Medium-bodied with a harsh mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Bone-dry finish.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On tap at the Arbor Brew Pub. Poured a deeper and cloudy dull copper color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of light roast, citrus, some caramel, and very light spice. Tastes follow the same. Light lacing left on the glass.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
Amber colour with turned up turned on roasted malt, lots of malt, and lots of lace. Overall an average beer. There is saaz hop and C hop taste in here. I have had similar tastes, though not quite this combination. Points for it, and it may appeal better to others. Decent mouthfeel.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2009
12 ounce bottle from mibirder. Thanks! Pours a deep nearly cranberry red color with a very large head that won’t go away. Nice lacing. Aroma of grain, grassy hops and a light tart note. Taste is bitter hops, very strong nutty notes, caramel and light grain. Medium bodied. A little off kilter but decent.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2007
Sample at the brewpub: I can’t think of a brewpub that has ever had more than one bitter available at the same time. The beer is a murky brown/orange color with a nil off-white head and spotty lacing. Roasted malt and piney hops aroma. Medium-bodied with a toasted malt character, as well as some nutty and hoppy flavors. The finish is clean and fruity with a mild hops aftertaste. An interesting contrast to the Huxell I tried immediately prior to this, considering they are technically the same style. This one isn’t quite as good but still a decent brew.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin tan head. Aroma was full of pine and floral hops with a slight undertone of grains. Flavor began with grainy malts and then the pine hops take over for a bitter finish.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Murky deep orange-brown with a massive frothy tan head. Smells like an incredibly malty, roasted chestnuts, woody, bitter "bitter" - borders on a light porter The taste is ... dry, a little sour, dry yeast, dry stale nutshell bitterness, overly carbonated and very very astringent - leaves a bitter, slightly sour aftertaste. Needs to be toned down.
