celluloiddroid (25) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Light golden color out of the bottle, a decent sized head that stuck around and a good amount of cardonation. Citrusy flavor with slight resin aftertaste. Reminded me of SNPA, but not quite as good, still a quality midwestern brew however.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Light gold color, white frothy head. Light lemony/grapefruity hop aroma. Grassy citrus orange taste like orange soda with a brown sugar sweetness. For some reason it has some alcohol burn in the stomach after only a few sips. Maybe its the carbonation. Resiny aftertaste/feeling that turns buttery. Not bad, but not top notch.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2004
not a bad outing from bells in the apa sector, but i was by no means blown away by it. enjoyed it about as much as the victory hop devil i had just tried. similar in taste, a little bit lighter though. drank this poolside which may help it out, just because i love apa’s on nice hot summer days. they just seem to hit the spot so well. another addition to my rotating weekly 6’er to add.

Metalhead (634) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Considering the quality of their specialty beers,I was pretty disappointed with this one. Barely avg. pale ale,mild hops,easy to drink but unimpressive and overpriced.

Clear golden pour with a dishsoap head. Aroma is surprisingly malty. Taste is rather dirty mixed with sopme malt and spice.
