Thanks to HopDog. Pours a cloudy orange with an average size white head that laced the glass. Aroma is grapefruit hops and some lemon and mandarin oranges. Flavor is tangerine, lemon and various citrus. A bit oily at the end.

Bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (thanks!). Aromas of citrus (lemons) and flowers. Tastes of lemons, tangerines, and light grapefruit. Lightly sweet. Had a light sourness to it - we may have saved this one from going bad.

Nice and hoppy... very little follow through however. Good poor, with a nice biege head. Leaves a nice lace and is not bitter at all.

Has a very pleasant craft-brewed taste. Mellow hops is very integrated with the malt resulting in understated yet nuanced hops aromatics. Good crispness without a lot of bitterness.

Dark amber color, creamy off white head. Little lacing. Piney and malty aroma. Grapefruity taste with a little malt in the background, doesn’t last. Thin mouthfeel.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - APR 15, 2005
On tap@O’Brien’s: Dark amber color with just a wisp of (bar pour) foam. Light sweet caramel-citrus aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet with some grapefruit and finishes with a lightly dry orangy taste. Body is kinda watery, but it’s not a bad pale.

DYCSoccer17 (3582) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 9, 2005
On tap at O’Briens in San Diego. Piney-coconut aroma. Kinda weird. Almost smells like sun tan lotion. Transparent amber color with a small khaki-colored head. Piney floral start turning watery with a little more pine to finish. Mildly astringent and thin. Needs some more malts.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a large and rocky off-white head. Aroma is dominated by malts with a bit of floral and citrus hoppiness. Flavor is also malty, slightly metallic and citric with hints of grass and herbs. Light to medium body and very little carbonation on the tongue. Pretty good session ale with the moderate alcohol level.

SDalkoholic (2314) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Oh wow the head created from a simple pour is overflowing the glass. What’s the deal here? Giant fluffy head that’s looks like a cloud pillow. Honey color hue and lots of lacing upon the glass. Nose is full of hops and citrus. Flavor is an easy going hop character of grapefruit and a earth flavor of dirty wheat. Little bit of a soap taste that barely is noticeable. A mighty fine American PA. Round of an applause......
