Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a lightly hazed pale orange color and has a thin light beige head that diminishes steadily. Top sticky ring of lacing with short strings underneath. Floral hops aroma with notes of malt in the background. Medium body with flavors of floral hops and earthy malt, plus a touch of fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Golden-orange appearance, light to decent head. Nice hops aroma, but more watery tasting than I prefer. Nice crisp texture, though. Short aftertaste.

Re-rate on 4/10/2012: On tap. Mildly hazy yellow-orange color. Good, thin white head, leaving good lace. Great light bitter taste. Awesome satisfying hops here. Nice crisp carbonation, dry texture. Definitely an excellent batch of OPA (it can vary). Palate score adjusted from 3 to 4. Overall score adjusted from 13 to 14.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2003
nice little brewpub in the college town of athens, ohio. friendly and informed wait staff. tried four or five of the cellar temp products, this one was the pick of the litter: 6.8 abv., and 79 ibu, chestnut appearing in low light, and clear. pub pours seldom offer much head, and this was no exception, just a ring of suds with a dappled orb in the middle like a little foam island. big cascades aroma, not far from the hoppy heft of a sierra nevada. nice drink, good carb and moderate sweetness but bigger finishing bitterness.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2006
On tap at the brewpub in Athens - Pours amber and somewhat cloudy with a tall offwhite head that stays pretty well. Aromas of floral hops, and a bit of caramel malts beneath it. Light airy mouthfeel with a good bitter finish. Nice brew...
