spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Light malty aroma with a lemon and citrus hoppiness. Pours a clear, medium amber with an average, off-white, and lasting head. Slightly sweet with a moderate amount of bitterness and a touch of salt. Finish is slightly acidic with a "kick in the teeth" hoppy bite that lingers long after it goes down. Excellent hops! Medium-bodied with an oily and fizzy texture. (Draft at brewpub in Philly)

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Pours pail amber. Aroma of fresh citrus and lightly floral hops. Flavor is a nice fres hop with a weak watery maltiness failing to provide a backbone. Palate is rather thin.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Draught @ Brewery: Smelled hoppy and floral, though not as strong as the 3C. Poured amber/brown color with a good head and fair lacing. Tasted of hops, spicy hops. Maybe some nutty notes as well. Easy to drink. Overall, not dry enough for me.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Peachy gold. Nose hoppy and citric, not much else. Flavor very better and bready, oddly lagerish in its finishing hops. Far too bready. Not a good thing.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Bright orange small white head. Light citrus and tons of bread in the aroma. Even more bready maltiness in the aroma. Astringent bitterness at the end. Dry finish medium body, very attentuated.

XO (52) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2004
I’m a hop-head so I enjoyed this beer. Not as good as Victory’s Hop-devil but comparable. Sweet, hoppy, citrus aroma. Cream-white head. Reddish-gold and very tasty.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2004
6 oz sample at the brewpub. Bright dark amber, good head retention. Light malty nose, honey-apple-lemon character here and in the flavor. Light and mild, little hoppiness that I could detect.
