Finhead (1170) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2010
An amber pour with blonde highlights and a small white head. The nose is more of a caramel malt and less hoppy. The taste seems a little off. It ranges from bland and mildly sour, but finishes with a short aftertaste.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a hazy dull orange with a thinning he off white head. Aroma is phenolic, plastic, old stale cheesy hops, light minty stale crackery malts, some skunked uhops and solvent and medicinal hints. Flavor is DMS, strange stale cheese and hops, mint, mineral, metallic- cascade lemony and soapy like hops- stale malts and just old- blech.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2010
A little more hoppy than I’d expect..a little more like an IPA. Not bad, not good just a beer that is there.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Pour is an orange with a small white head. Aroma is slight citrus hops that let you know there are there. Flavor is lots of citrus hop with a nice earthy malt backbone. A decent APA and quite sessionable.

Bottle: Pours a clear orange with an off white film of head. Stale aroma with notes of plastic phenols and mild caramelized grains.Light body. The flavor is stale as well with a papery pale malt presence. There’s a slight herbal presence with restrained cascade hops and a metallic note. Slightly oxidized and one dimensional.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle. Horrific, solventy, chemical acid aroma, has me recalling in horror. The flavor isn’t much different, a nasty toothpaste + orange juice flavor, wheat, cream. Blech.
