pours out dark red color with a thick tan head. aroma is fruity in smell. i like this appearence, it looks good. certainly looks and smells better than it tastes. there really isnt much to it, goes down too easy and leaves little aftertaste. this is ok- glad i didnt get a sixer.

nice erratic lace, persistent tight, light brown head. vibrant amber/copper body. floral, fruity and well hopped. some caramel sweetmess. Thin, metallic and weak. some graininess and hop bitters, but I really don't think too much of it

Cobra (1100) - - FEB 13, 2004
12 oz. brown stubbie twist off bottle. I hate twist offs. Anyway, no freshness date whatsoever. And I looked closely. Poured out a murky, chill hazed orangish color, with a fast fading off white colored head. Aromas are of caramel malts, Centennial hops, brown sugar, and slight charcoal aroma as well. Tastes ok, but smells better. Tastes are of charcoal, caramel malts, slight yeast bite, and hops. Medium mouthfeel is nothing to write home about. Finished slightly dry, and bitter.

balanced aroma, light orange with a loose head, weak body with slight corny hoppiness and some sticky caramel maltiness, overall pretty weak

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Pours an amber color with light lacing. Lightly hopped and balanced amber. Nothing particular comes to mind. I didn't mean to buy this one actually, I meant to get the stout.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Pours amber with a decent head and nice lacing. Aroma is medium hops. Flavor is quite hoppy and fresh tasting. Good malt balance. Body is medium and almost creamy. Pretty good amber.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Sweet smelling ale with very mild hints of hops and fruit. Nice red amber color with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very mild. Palate was not very complex but very refreshing. A easy drinking beer.

fiulijn (18101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2003
Red amber color. Dry but nice hop aroma; lemony. Reasonable malty, nutty body; caramel; some sweetness. Bitter enough; caramel and hop finish (a bit simple).

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Pours clear amber with small head. Nice caramel malt aroma. Full bodied with a slightly sweet malt start with a surprising hop bitterness. Nice aftertaste. More hops than most Ambers. Seems like a APA (with a darker malt flavor) or an English bitter. Very nice beer. Some off flavors (bad melon) developed as it warmed. Drink it cold, drink it fast.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2003
This beer is truly an enigma. It looks and smells beautiful. Rich amber color, fluffy head with lots of lacing, tiny bubbles lend itself to a nice creamy mouthfeel. The flavor, however, disappoints. A lot of caramel, yes. Decent hoppy malt combo, but then it just disappears, man. You're left with a slightly sour malt aftertaste wondering what just happened. Disappointing considering the Indica is so top shelf.
