Kind of a peachy flavor. Real good, though. Nice hoppy flavor, and a nice aroma.

Wow. I love this style, and I love this beer. Hoppy, yes, but one of the most well-balanced beers (soft, rich, complex, malty, very slightly sweet) that I have ever had. If the aroma had more malt depth, it would move up even more. Not like SNPA; bigger bodied, nice sweet malt at the close. This is a serious keeper. This exemplifies why I always get two -- just in case the beer is an absolute winner. Glad I have one more.

Down-to-earth flavor, malty & clean. Kept my tastebuds busy... and happy.

Very hoppy, bitter, and cloudy beer provides an earthy flavor and excellent finish. One of my new faves!

Strong fruity hoppy aroma. Earthy hop aroma and bitterness balanced with a slight sweetness. Very tasty beer.

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - NOV 9, 2001
Big foamy white head leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma is apparent in this amber colored medium bodied beer. Nice hoppy flavor. Excellent beer Orchard Street!
