COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing Cold Hop British-style ale, a unique ale with a rich golden hue, and the 7th release in our Looking Glass Series of specialty beers. Cold Hop's pleasantly fruity, floral hop aroma and earthy flavor perfectly balance the mild sweetness of the English grains, resulting in a refreshing yet high-gravity British-Style ale.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Beautiful pour, nice head. Strong fruity aroma. Real hoppy, no doubt about it. Not sure how much "British-style" this is, but itís good. Finishes well, and the mouthfeel is great. Itís seasonal, grab it soon.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Bracing floral hop aroma. Tickles the palate. Coppery amber color with a massive frothy head that laces. Medium bodied; light carbonation. Like it were bottle conditioned, mate. Light caramel malt sweetness, balanced by fruit and flowers. A bit gummy sweetness as the finish approached. The finish is very florally flavored and balanced. It is really very good. Mild and flavorful. Great.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Big citrus and fruit aromas with mild spice notes. The massive dose of ganja canít go without mentioning either. The body is a pale, slightly tan tinted, golden color and holds a diminishing white head. Flavor is all hops with citrus, floral and herbal notes. Finish is sweet and fruity. Has a mildly oily feel to it. Just too hoppy for my tastes though.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Pours a clear orange amber with asmall off white head. Smells of spicy hops, grapefruit, and citrus. The taste is very bitter hoppy, and defintely get some spice big time too. Very interesting beer. Nice citrusd finish, leaves a big grapefruit taste in the back of the throat.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 The aroma on this one is strong enough that after pouring I smelled it from a few feet away. Rich and sweet with earthy notes. Pours a nice amber, borderline orange body, little fizzy head thatís off-white and settles rapidly. Does have some nice lacing. Aroma is strong, not too sophisticated but smells like you would expect a "real ale" to smell--which is a great thing. Flavor is sturdy with malt being the dominant participant and hops taking a far back seat. This beer has a nice sweetness that is subtle and well presented. Palate is earthy with fruity notes and some English hop character, a bit of alcohol, and a smooth lightly bitter finish that does satisfy. This is good beer done great and I would absolutely indulge in its deliciousness any time. Note: The label says that this beer was brewed with the help of Charlie Papazian and is actually a variation on a recipe of his; amazingly good call on Boulder Beerís part. Hats off to you fellas!

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Clear copper. Small white head. Flavor and aroma of spicy, resinous, piney, earthy, citrus hops with lightly grainy malt support. Surprisingly hoppy after reading "british-style ale" on the label. Medium body, balanced carbonation. IPA is a more accurate description. Solid.
