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.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful cheddar orange with a lively body and a slightly off-white head. Apricot seems to be the dominant aroma in the nose; quite pleasant and light. Flavor is floral apricot with a nice sweet/bitter finish of grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel; flavors are dispersed quite nicely along the tongue. Very enjoyable brew; Iíll buy more of this for sure.

The aroma is quite English with English hops and yeast. The malt character is caramel like and the taste is nutty. The appearance is amber with a decent head. The palate is smooth. Wow a fantastic beer.

This is really winner, the hops are more piny and subtle than Amercian styles of this kind. The malts are light and refreshing, crisp tastings with no astringency

A fresh hoppy beer that is on the same level as Hazed. The head is a little darker and the hops present give it that earthy smell and flavor. Not a traditional British style IPA or hoppy ale, this has slightly more hops and a better taste.

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.

Poured a clear yellow color with a white head. Had some lacing, and has hints of sweet hops, spices, and flowers. Finished light bodied with a dry sweet hop taste on the tongue.

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.

Pours a darkish amber color. Aroma is hoppy, floral and sweet. Flavor is hoppy and sweet.Finish has some bitterness but the fruit sweetness overpowers it.

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.

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.
