Draft - Nitro - Piney, grapefruit with an earthy finish. Clear gold with a great white head. Light earthy hops and an almost light sourness with the bitterness. If only tastes as good as it looked.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle -pours a big rich to rocky off white head and hazy gold/amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel/pale-light/medium malt, secondary citrus/floral/spicy hops. Taste is a bit thin pale malt-some caramel, secondary floral/earthy/tea leaves/metallic hops. Much is OK but the detractors show up more, the further I get in. Thanks to chesky-SD via Joe-jwc215 for the trade.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy orange. Aroma of stale hops, a bit floral and a bit of malt. Flavor has light malt sweetness, some husky graininess and stale hops bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Seems too old.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Fresh hop aromas dominate (flowers and oranges) with some toasted malts. Tastes of oranges, caramel, and flowers. Tastes all on the lighter side compared to the aroma. With the strong hop aroma, I was expecting more (but this is an English Pale Ale). This was quite drinkable though. Body on the thinner side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a bottle at Jonesy’s Eatbar in Denver. The beer is a pale amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops aroma with citrusy undertones. Medium body with herbal and floral hops flavors, as well as some citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy up front with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent all around.

It sounded like it would be good, but was underwhelming. It is light and grainy with not a large amount of hops.
