Best Pale Ale I’ve had. This has a slight citrus aroma/flavor without being sour. Strong hop presence but the finish is very well balanced which takes the edge off the hoppiness. Great summertime beer.

If there is a great god of hops, this (and Bell’s Two-Hearted) were created by his mandate. Beautiful bronze color and with playful bubbles dancing everywhere. If you put your nose to close to the glass, you get some tingles from hops and carbonation. Powerful hops character in every pull. Long lasting hop finish. A great beer.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 Pours a glowing amber-copper color, nice thick head,decent lacing. Strong grapefruity cotten candy, hoppy aroma. Medium body, soft creamy palate, Strong citrus hoppy with some caremel flavor, good session brew, easy to down a few.

I was hoping this would be a better beer, but was slighlty disappointed. The aroma was nice, slight citrus; but flavor was nothing special---sorry, but I have had Leinies that tasted better. Maybe the batch was old...? Seemed to taste alittle ’medicine-y’?

Golden color, minimum head, but stays well. Smells of lemon, floral, with a little spice. A bitter, smooth clean taste. A very good beer.

hazy bronze color with a dense bubbly head. floral aroma. the taste is all hop. it starts out on a mild note with a malt /hop balance but the finish is pure hop. hasa zesty citrus grapefruit tang to it. thesmooth dry palate only adds to a great beer

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 This beer rocks. Bottle... hazy, amber ale with lots of yeast in the bottle. A citrusy, piney aroma with lots of caramel. Moderately bitter, citrusy flavor that’s loaded with grapefruit. Medium-bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Bitter, grassy finish. World class brew! A joy to drink!

A great beer that varies slightly throughout the year. Good malt flavor with strong hop presence. Bold but easy drinking for hopheads. Good dark orange color with small head.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2002
This beer had a nice dark amber orange color to it. It formed a nice light tan head that left some nice lace. A slight hop and malt aroma to it. The flavor had hops and malt with a sweet, but not too sweet, citrus and caramel taste. It has a medium body and finish. Not as dry of a finish as their Pride and Joy, but a good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 Had it in Cincinnati. Found it at Jungle Jim's (see Jim's web site). WoW, ZaP, ZiNg, PoW...the orangy/grapefruit hop bitter slaps you right in the taste buds and wakes them right up. Almost like a light IPA. A really good beer.
