Pours a very pale orange/amber color with tons of tiny floating yeast. Spicy/floral aroma with some hops. Mildly malty flavor, some spices like an APA, and a pretty good hop hit at the finish like an IPA. Mouthfeel is average--not very rich, not too watery. ...So what?

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Appearance is a light copper color. VERY, VERY cloudy from all the suspended yeast from the bottle-conditioning. Some folks cringe on yeast. I really don't. It can ad so much depth to a brew. The Flavor is smooth and well balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Fine Stuff!

Had this on tap while at the Tage Inn in Boston. Came golden brown with a small head. The nose was odd. Light hop and malt character and some sweetness as well. The tongue was comprised of hops and bubblegum. Not regular bubblegum, but the kind that used to come with baseball cards and was always stale. Definitely odd. It finished well enough. I was hoping for more hop character but it was lacking. It finished kind of weak but was still a decent beer.

Tap. Light brown with medium head. Decent English malt backing, with a more American hop bite. Good session beer.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Good, solid American ale. It reminds me very much of Harpoon Ale. Copper in colour, very well balanced flavour. Nothing really stands out, but that's the point.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Orange color, very hazy lots and lots of sediment. Aroma is hoppy, floral and doughie, I would consider it great but its too weak. Flavor is hoppy nicly balanced by mild malts and slightly yeasty. Some tones of apple and grapefruit. The flavor much like the aroma could be great but its just too tame.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 A particularly bitter, IPA-style ale with huge chunks of yeast floating in the bottle, always a sign of quality (though often a thing that grosses people out). Not a fan of the taste. Not so much an EPA, due to its strong hop presence. Lingering bitterness in the finish a full five minutes after I finished the bottle!
