I love this beer and the brewery. The mixture of malt and hops is something I truely enjoy. I do believe this to be an acquired taste, I have introduced it to many friends that canít stand it. This is definately one I wish I could find in Utah, damn Utah alcohol laws.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Had this on my visit home 3 weeks ago at a restaurant and now itís my go-to beer. Pours a beautiful amber color and the flavor is mellow but very, very good. I canít really describe it just that itís good.

Crystal clear, orangey copper with a wispy head that forms a bit of a ring. Caramel aroma that is pretty weak with some noble hops and orange notes.
Gentle toffee flavour with a hint of citrus hops and moderate bitterness. Caramely with only a very tiny bit of fruitiness. Medium body with significant carbonation and a clean finish.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 i remember having this before and really liking it, and i recently had it again and it didnít do much for me, That was almost 10 years ago, did the beer get worse or is it me? I know that sometimes recipes are tweaked, cutting costs, mass production, distribution can all play a role. Because I donít think its me, but it might be.

This is darker than the normal beers I drink. However, I have developed a taste for it from my father-in-law. I couldnít drink it every night, but definately a nice "change-of-pace" beer. Dark, bitter and very hopsy on the aftertaste. Definately an acquired taste.

Good looking amber, but the taste is odd. Malty, but not very sweet. Kind of a nutty taste that is advertised as toasted malts. Its okay, but does not live up to the hype.

Grainy caramel malts balance with citrus orange and grapefruit hops in the nose. Clear amber coloured body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, white head that lasts well and laces. Toasty, biscuity malts are joined by a juicy citrus character with mild bitterness that leaves this one seeming rather sweet. Medium body is quite dry with moderately gassy carbonation. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (Liquor Mart, Boulder, CO, Oct-05).
