2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled: Light amber coloured. Light beige head. Very malty aroma. Some sweetness and fruit is there. Buttery and sweet in the flavour. Is ligth hopped which leads into a light bitterness in the end. An average beer, thats not offending anyone. Even great brewers makes beers, that are less than divine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Rerate 12/14/05: The bottled version of this beer agrees with me a litte more. Copper color with a thick and fluffy off-white head. Thick sheets of lacing too. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied and with a decent floral hops character, as well as a fair amount of malt. The finish is moderately hoppy. Straightforward and pretty enjoyable.
11/12/02 (2.4): Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Light amber color with minute head. Hops aroma that was difficult to detect. This seemed watered-down and nothing special to me. I like more hops in my APAs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of Very citrussy grapefruit, floral, piney, with carmel and malts. Juicy hop and fruity, with bitter aftertaste. Certainly not a lot of malting, more IPA and can pass as one. light golden yellow with a bit of froth. Understated carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour, medium white head. Aroma smells of an IPA, flavor is a mix of a pale ale and an IPA. Too bad the pale ale gets the better of the IPA. This is a great beer after a hot game of beach volleyball. Crisp and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy, copper ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Lightly bitter, acidic flavor with a pink grapefruit, lemony slap to the palate. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, acidic finish. Not really malty or smooth. A bit too acidic. Will have to try another bottle some day to make sure this one isn’t off just a bit. Enjoyable. Refreshing.
