FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark honey yellow with a big yellow-pink tinged head. Aroma of grapefruit and flower garden ops. Flavor of honey and lots of flowers and hops. Finishes with honey and hops. So...this is a bitter? Not an IPA? Just sort of tastes like hops. Not bad or anything, but, ya know, it just all hops. Like what I imagine chewing on raw hops with a spoonful of honey is like.

Yeah, buddy. Pours a great hazy copper with a medium-to-thin head. Aroma is sweet caramel, Crystal and Cascades, grapefruit, and yeast. Flavor is initially hoppy grapefruit, followed by sweet caramel, then salty, then a nutty flavor that reminds me of toasted pumpkin seeds, and a long bitter finish. Booyah. Phenominal with lentil snf veggie soup.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2006
12oz - A nice hop aroma balanced out with carmel malt and a little nuttiness. Pours cloudy orange-brown with nice quickly dissapating head leaving great lacing. Flavor is malt first, a little hazelnut, the the hops kick in. Palate is clean and smooth. A tasty brew.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Pours cloudy amber/orange with active carbonation and rocky off-white medium lacing head. Aroma is hoppy from the pour, with pine and grapefruit. Flavor is hoppy, citrus, yeast, malt. Palate is creamier, smoother than expected. Soft, lingering finish.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a soapy white head. Aroma is very piney and citrus with a strong hop backing. Flavor is of pine soaked hops with a grapefruit hop finish. Medium body that is smooth on the tongue with a nice lasting after taste. Very drinkable.

"Not what I expected at all. I was expected super hops and got bitter start and then a much more balanced taste was the beer warmed. CItrus and pine flavor. Overall a good beer"

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2006
True to its name, it is very bitter. This American style bitter is malty but dry. Loaded with American hops flavor. Hop aroma is not over the top, but they didn’t hold back on bittering hops. Excellent choice with pasta!

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Well made, although not very British in flavor. Pours a light orange in color, a bit hazy and with a perfect white head. Aroma is very bitterish, sulfur, malty, slightly grassy, slightly rotten, little tart. Flavor is pretty reminisent of an American pale, moderately bitter(but not aciditic) mixed with malty sweetness. Finish is very balanced upfront and slighty dry on the tail end.
