Hop aroma was stronger than the hop taste. * Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

Sampled at the Standard Tap, then decided to pass. Not much in the way of hops, just another bland pale (amber) ale.

Not a great fan of this hoppy style. Real fragrant, has a real bitterness that sticks throughout. grapefruit after-taste. a picture an old wrinkled lady with her cheeks sucked in sipping this.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Somebody needs to tell the Troegs brothers to reevaluate this recipe. About two years ago I had this I liked, nice solid classic tasting amber ale. Last week, because I had not had it in about four months I grabbed a six pack - holy crap WHAT HAPPENED! Way too much hops, way too much. Very sweet, too sugary grapefruity taste, not balanced.

33cl bott@Strasbourg Mondial de la Biere. Nice golden-amber color. Interesting nose. Lemony. Zesty. Clean and sharp. Nearly tasteless. Low malt profile, bit of hops, just a point. Nothing else. Disappointing. Lighly bodied.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear amber with 3/4" beige head. Little lacing, heavy body, low carbonation, and sticky texture. Taste is caramel malt, some grapefruit, and finishes piney bitter. Not a fan of the pine.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Taste is typical of an amber ale. Nothing special.

Can’t say I liked this one. Had high expectations based on the brewery’s rep and the reviews. Not my style, possibly bad bottle (?). A very, very full flavour but something intensely wrong with the hops. Almost sour.
