This beer is somewhat unbalanced by the hops. It has good oroma and a nice full mouthfeel, but the hops overwhelm a bit in the finish. A little too much citrus there too.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2003 Had this at Capital Ale House in Richmond, VA on 6-7-03. Draft version. Nice amber body with a wonderful citrusy and hoppy nose. Pleasant mouthfeel and soothing on the tongue with citrus fruit and floral hoppiness standing out but also adding a hint of sweetness. Dry but smooth finish made this a nice buy this evening.

Tasted at the brewery . A fabulous concoction. Citrus hits you immediatesly with a nice brown/amber beer and fine brussels lace to accompany a great beer. This beer is a staple among my diet with a fine balance of hops and malt. Fantastic!!!

Huge hoppy nose, with some citrus, amber, medium custard head. Hoppy, grapefruit flavour, a riot of bitterness here, robust, with a dry finish. Extremely hoppy for the style!

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 I hold in my hand a great glass of hop nectar.Smells like just that to me w/ great malty balance.This is great...the last time I got this beer I knew it had to be old or somthin(black ring at the bottom of bottle)Still decent,but in its true form it is all out hop/malt perfection.Very smooth drinkin',quick finish w/ lingering citris hoppiness subdued.I must say wow.I just got a truly fresh 6-pk of this and all I can say is Perfect.(if it's brewed in munster,stay away from that new ulm,mn stuff)

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 Poured orange, with an off white head. Citrusy hop aroma, as well as a bitter hop flavor, with some grape taste as well. Nice malt backbone. Can be drank more frequently than the Dreadnaught.

As soon as I opened the bottle, my nose was overwhelmed with the aroma of hops. As I began to drink it, sure enough, my mouth was filled with the wonderful flavor of hops. Boiling, aroma, and finishing hops are very apparent in this brew. I really enjoyed it. As for any other flavors, there was a little bit of citrus in it. The color was an orange with an off-white head. I really enjoyed this one.

Good looking orange/amber body with a small white head. Smell is of pure hops leaves. Big hoppy and fruity taste, an excellent pale ale.

Mmmm, mmmm. Great brew here. Citrusy aroma, with hops as well. Fluffy white head that persisted through most of the drinking. Redder color than I expected, but I thought it looked great. Crisp taste, and bitter as well. A bit of citrus, and hops too. Very good, glad I picked up a sixer.
