oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2010
Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of caramel malt, hops, and a touch of citrus. Caramel sweetness in the taste with a good bitterness of hops.

Ibrew2or3 (8206) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2010
On tap at the Sockeye brewpub pouring copper with off white head and some sheet lacing. The aroma is sweetness and citrus then moving into some nuttiness. Interesting aromatic combination. Enjoyable flavor with the same sweetness running into orange zest like citrus as noted in the nose. The citrus bitterness grows and seems to pick up some resiny pine by midway. Mild roasted malt join the hop resin to create a modestly dry finish.

BuckeyeBoy (6093) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 10, 2010
On tap at Sockeye Boise. pours out a clear crisp amberish gold topped with a small off white cream head. Aroma was of a nice hop combo, floral, pine, and some citrus. Taste was plenty of grapefruit peel bitter hops along with a malt to help round it out.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2006
On Tap: the brewer called this an english pale ale, I would tend to agree. Pours a nice golden color with a small head, aroma is sweet and bitter. Taste is sweet from malt, some bitterness, light citrus tones, and a bit of fruitiness. Not as intense as a esb. Very pleasant.

IndianaRed (3838) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 20, 2005
On Tap at the bew pub Light golden amber with small white head and traces of thin lacing. Mild sweet malts and faint citrusy hops in the aroma. Flavor was easyon the hops and mild fairly sweet malt profile. Strange feel, dry and a bit bitter.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Somewhat aromatic with flowers, citrus, and earthy hops, hints of toast and malt; well balanced and tasty bitter that has a long finish, pleasant medicianl hints, and a musty dryness over a decent malt base; good

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pours orange-gold with a creamy head and sheets of lacing. Aromas of lemon and grapefruit with floral hops, candy and sweet malts. Again sweet malts visit us along with caramel, floral, citrus and bitter hops that blend very well. Nicy hoppy palate and a dry, bitter finish. Well made bitter.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 16, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 ReRate on-tap at Sockeye: Hazy bronze color with a nice thick white head. The aroma is spicy with herbal hops and a sweet malt body. The flavor is also moderately hoppy with a good blend of hops similar to their IPA but a little less balanced and a little more toned down. Finishes slightly astringent, not too bad.
