Nice hops aroma, grapfruity, quite west coast as they say. tight beige 2mm head on reddish brown beer, good lacing. flavor is per aroma plus floral, decent bready malt underpinning. nice, smooth, good hoppy finish that stays with you. right on point, this is one of their most on target beers.

On tap at the Nodding Head. Poured a medium and clear orange color wtih an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of pine, citrus and some caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, some caramel and lighter pine. Reminded me more of an IPA.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2006
sampler at brewpub. Clear amber with a small off white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is of citrus with some slight sweet maltiness coming through. Taste was hoppy, maybe they recently changed the recipe because there was a decent amount of malt for the style, at least IMO. Long lasting bitter finish.

"Poured a nice darker golden color with small white head little lacing. Arom was of citrus hops slight malty undertone. Flavor was of grapefruits and some bitterness, not sure what."

On draft at Nodding Head. Pours a clear, dark copper with thin white head. Floral nose with some citrus. Iím not sure where the "solid malt backbone" was. It wasnít in my beer. Boring hop profile as well. Pretty weak.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
It appeared to be dark in color. Aroma was dirty and grassy hops. Flavor was malty and pretty hoppy. I remember the hops being a little off but there being a lot of them. Overall, pretty good.

Really grapefruity bitter. Bummed me out, but at least itís true to style. Not my bag, baby.

Grapefruit bomb. Ick. Unfinishable. Citric aroma and nasssty floral-grapefruit middle. Herbal finish. Blech.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2005
Draft at the brewery. Poured red with a carbonated head. The head had no lacing what so ever. The aroma had citrus and graitfruit hops. It reminded me more of an IPA. Taste had a descent start, but got watery pretty quickly. This beer is about average in my opinion.

Arnoud (35) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2005
On draught at the Nodding Head. Pours red with a ight white head. Nose is malty and citrus with slight hints of hops, flowers, and grass. Flavor is bitter, but not in a good way. The balance is way off on this one. Looking at the previous ratings, I wonder if the recipe has changed as this has a lot of hop character. Average brewpub pale ale.
