Courtesy of Pailhead. Golden copper with semi-rocky white head. Greta lacing, leaves the glass completely coated. Plenty of caramel malt backbone, except it’s up front. Faint citru zest, seems oxidized. flavor is very harsh and astringent, musty hops and oxidized malt. Just Average at best.

Pailhead (4814) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Aroma of sweet citrus, caramel, and light grassy hops. Pours a bright transparent orange with a small soapy white head. Lots of caramel up front with a light sweet citrus. Piney hop finish is not strong enough to balance the initial malt.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 9, 2006
The pour is a orangish/gold color with a white head. Aroma had citrus/hop notes with minimal sweetness. Flavor was pretty much the same although it had some nice citrus hop flavor that was very appealing to me. Finish was clean with some bitterness left on the tongue. You could do alot worse, so this gets a vote of confidence.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2006
Sweet orange, grapefruit and some caramel malts are apparent in the nose. Hazy golden orange coloured body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some sudsy lacing. Somewhat vegetal, green citrus hops are sharp in the flavour with pronounced bitterness and not a lot of malt character. Medium body with moderate, fine bubbled effervescent carbonation. Bottle (trade, May-05) sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Oliver_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie. Thanks, DarkElf!

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Slightly cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel with citric hops. Good flavor of fruity hops with well rounded caramel malt and a bitter finish. The palate is light and creamy with soft carbonation. A good IPA but there’s nothing captivating.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Good solid color, a sunny golden glow veiled by a good haze, though the head retention is average at best. Typical hop attack reaches the nose, with simplistic orange C’s and archetypal crystal malt sweetness. Unsurprising in mouth, growing a moderate bitterness and offering more of the same classic flavours. Well brewed, but undistinctive besides a highly competent light-medium body that boasts a very crisp texture through a well distributed medium-high effervescence.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A decent head remains on the orangey glow.
-Stringy, grassy and orangey hops bulk up over the biscuity malt.
-A full malt mouthfeel offers solid caramel support.
-An appreciable resinous hop bitterness prolongs the mouthful.

What if you dig deeper?
-Wooden notes appear in the aroma, along with bread crumbs.
-The tight carbonation is cushiony, admirably sewing the mouthfeel’s intricacies.
-This is a well-crafted IPA, nothing more, nothing less.

Bottle; no date.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 30, 2005
A pretty good aroma to it, west coast hops are coming through nicely. Pretty light IPA, low IBU’s, but smooth and pleasant. Pretty nice.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Wet lemony hop aroma. Light golden in color with a thick head that last. A full blast of c-hops, I am assuming centennials, wrap around your tongue and deliver a fine howdoyoudo. Enough body to make it interesting and deliver a good product. Pretty nice with a lasting grapefruit sensation. Thanks Rodger!

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, thanks to DarkElf for the bonus. Grapefruit and pine aroma with some orange citrus mixed in as well. Very bright aroma. Copper-orange with an inch tall, off-white head that lasts. Bitter hop flavor with lots of caramel malt sweetness underneath. Medium light body - oily texture. I enjoyed this one.
