kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Clear amber, with a thick white head. strong grapefruit hop aroma. strong malt aroma supports the big, mouth-coating hops. Hops linger on the palate for a while, but at no point do they overwhelm. nicely balanced and drinkable.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Golden color with nice sized soapy head. Grapefruit hop aroma and taste, with some pretty good malt flavors mixed in. For some reason this didn’t really hit the spot and seemed a bit off, but overall its a decent-good APA.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Pours amber with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, fruity hops, and salt. Very british like maltiness of caramel and toffee. Soft carbonation. Medium bitter finish that is very leafy, with a tad amount of soapiness. Not bad.

mwoolley (5) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2006 does not count
Dark amber-oak appearance with a slim head. Enticing fresh hop aroma, balanced with a hint of roasted malt. The taste does not disappoint, with an excellent balance of medium malt followed by the crisply-proportioned hop finish that lingers enjoyable in the top of your mouth. This is the best Nodding Head beer I tried and the only one I would order again.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Clear, deep gold body with moderate carbonation and a cottony, buff-colored head. Strong, earthy and baudy hop aroma with grapefruit citrus and some underlying sweet crystal malt. Strong woodsy hop flavor with some toasty malt balance. A decent, assertive APA.
