A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is nicely hoppy combined with oranges. The flavor is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel and strong notes of grass coming towards the end, leading up to a dry bitter end.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2003
(draft) Hazy amber with white head. Aroma is grapefruit, medium sweet. Taste has good grapefruit bitterness, but I dare say the maltiness actually tops the bitterness -- nutty. Crisp full body.

Ratman197 (9514) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle poured a clear reddish gold with a dissapating white head. Aromas of carmel, light pine and a hint of lemon. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of light carmel, a bit of pine and light citrus with a lingering bitter finish.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Medium orange in color with a medium white head. Musty smelling with hops (citris) and some malts. Is this an IPA - where is the bitter bite I love? Slightly sweet with very little hoppy bite.

3fourths (7878) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Very acidic aroma: pears and peaches. Semisweet flavor of yeast and nuts, with an overtome of sweet, light candy and fruit... very similar to Mirror Pond.
