mcberko (13054) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle, split with manuchampions, pours dark golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is much like an IPA, with citrus hops, strong floral notes and caramel. Flavour is again, on the fence of being an APA and a lighter IPA, with floral notes jumping out, followed by bold citrus hops (for the style) and caramel malt backing. Nothing revolutionary, but for the style, it’s hard to find better ones out there.

argo0 (12937) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 (bottle - 10/7/03) Hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, medium sweet, fairly intense bitterness. Still, the sweetness lends decent balance to the hops. Medium body. (draft - 7/2/03) Clear brown body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet hoppy. Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)

Bottle @ Sorbon, Bromma July 30 2011. Red, amber colored beer with a slightly off-white head. Smell sweet, fruit, hops and grapefruit. Really nice taste of hops, fruits and a little sweetness with a bitter finish. Very balanced. Soft carbonation and medium to full body.

Christian (12578) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Slightly cloudy with a lasting off-white head, leaving some lacing. Citrus and pine hops in the nose, with caramel malty sweetness and a hint of green tobacco. Dry hoppy flavour with some malt, and intense bitterness.

Lubiere (12575) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.

jcwattsrugger (12014) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 12 oz bottle-pours a nice creamy tan head. Clear gold-amber color. Aroma-lots of citrus&hops. Flavor is lots of citrus-bitter grapefruit (from the hops). Taste finishes with the bitter grapefruit lightly, and without a bite. A very good, occasional beer.
