Very impressive looking copper with white head beer. I also was shocked with incredible fresh, complex aroma. Other brew masters watch and learn! What else do you want? This very aromatic brew also got nice mouthfeel. With time also gives you soft warm feel. Great Brew!

Pours a light amber. Kind of watery. Very little head. Not as hoppy as I was expecting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Dark orange, quite hazy, moderate off-white head that settles quickly to a thin film, lacing is quite nice but carbonation appears to be non-existant.   Soft malty aroma, slight graininess, even slighter hop.   Grainy malt flavor, hop profile is extremely minor.   Luckily as it warms the hop bitterness becomes more noticable.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average.   Fairly clean finish, soft, or should I say very soft, hop bitterness lingers.   Thanks Dan for the freebie!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange hue with a gentle off-white ring. Fresh and crisp aroma boasts plenty of caramel malt developing a nice toffee and cookies side to pair with the rich hop profile, orangey and earthy, yet bright and vibrant. Surprising salty notes complement the vegetal, algae-like, earthy, herbal and globally natural flavour components. Pleasant oily medium body presents crisp carbonation that match well with the zesty hopppiness. Good stuff! Thanks a lot Hopscotch!

On draft at the brewery, 9/1/05: orange-red. Nice big grapefruit tones, quite citric and yummy. I’d like more, please.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cookie and light hop aroma. Pours a transparent amber with a nice off-white head with good retention. Malty up front with a good amount of caramel. Finishes bitter and then the caramel sneaks back into the aftertaste. Well balanced APA.
