Pours a pale amber with a very thin white head that fled quickly. Pleasing floral hop aromas, some citrus and malts. Bitterness starts the flavor going into a some lemon, finishing bitter once again. Pretty nice IPA

Good gold/orange color, with slight citrus nose. Like Volgon said, a little watery on the mouth feel, but finishes very stong with the bitterness. I have to say it was a little off balance.

On tap GABF ’02: Light orange colored, fair amount of hops in the aroma, flat watery mouthfeel. Slightly bitter initially and at the end, but nothing here shines though here.

Well, out west, in my admittedly limited experience, the ambers are nuttier and the IPAs are sweeter. This is a good example - alfalfa hoppiness bookending a sugary, weak body. The hops are well done, not so sure about the rest.
