Glorious gold orange with almost no head. Very faint floral herbal hop aroma. Medium smooth low carb body. Medium woody hops and low sweetness malt flavours with hint of spicy yeastiness. Medium dry soft watery finish.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Nice flavour with a decent shot of hops although it could use a little more body. For the style is a good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 spicy, floral nose. light copper body, orange highlight. small and soapy white head. flavor: hint of fruits such as pear. also, spicy hops indeed, which are reminiscent of some teas. thin palate, but smooth. unremarkable, but good. drinkable, enjoyable.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2004
Draught. Thin dense off white head. Nose is very floral. Taste is fruity-it has the same taste as Early Grey Tea. Notes of lemon, cherry, and grapes abound. This is a very pleasant very mild brew. Finish is mild and slightly floral. This would be a great beer to sip while sitting on the porch watching the day fade away.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 26, 2004
Copper color with a ruby tint. Nice floral aroma with a malty presence. Taste is a very nice balance between lightly bitter floral hops and sweet malt. Lightly sweet and quite taste. Finish is lightly bitter and sprucey.

worldleadr (56) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2004
Incredibly smooth on the palate. The hoppy flavor, reminiscient of seawater, builds up to a semi-sharp peak, and then remains and fades in the aftertaste. Nice, but I bet some folks would find the flavor odd.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2004
Bottle. 04.01.04. Pretty beer; reddish/orange/copper hues with a thick and rocky head. Substantial lacing. Aromas of wonderful, precious C-Hops waft my way immediately and I am drooling. Lots of citrus in aroma, some pine. Lots of flavor: smooth and sweet, plenty of floral bitterness. Not at the top of the APA heap, but a delicious example. Finishes bitter and dry, lingering fruits in aftertaste. Maybe to harsh a finish to be an APA. Good stuff.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - APR 22, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Amber color and fairly smooth and refreshing. This beer didn’t have any bad qualities to it at all. They weren’t trying to do anything fancy with this beer, which makes it bery drinkable.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2004 Hazy ruby amber with a medium diminishing light-khaki head. Sweet aroma of grapefuit, pine, caramel, and brown sugar. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Woody flavor of grapefruit, pine, caramel, plum and bread. Very drinkable, but slightly astringent and faintly metallic. Very good, but it gets lost in the crowd of decent APAs.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2004
Lots of attributes in this one...The aroma was of a brown ale - with a caramel and alcohol scent. The pour was like a red ale, with a deep amber (yet cloudy) cast. The flavor was of a high malt, high hop brew, like Arrogant Bastard Lite. The thick mouthfeel was like an IPA, with a long dry finish. Nothing distinct here, but a nice blend. Thanks Harlequinn!
