Bottle poured a clear copper/amber color with small head. Aroma was sweet caramel with buttery diacetyl fermentation notes. The flavor had a mild bitterness with a big diacetyl taste just like others tasted.

Fruity aroma gives way to a hoppy taste. It has a sweet beginning and a bitter finish. Very dry. Worth a shot.

12 oz bottle. Nice floral hop aroma. A little darker than some pale ales at a light copper color. Decent amount of hop flavor and nice malt flavor as well. Relatively balanced although a bit towards teh extra pale ale/IPA in terms of bitterness

Has a very intence disirable diactyle flavor. After taste is a welcomed hop flavor.

Aurelius (4575) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2007
Mixed American and UK hop aroma on sweet caramel malt and diacetyl. Big poofy head, bad label that looks like somebody’s kid sister got hold of the graphics software. Grapefruity, moderate sweetness, somewhat overbrewed, a bit tangy. Medium bitterness, lightly brothy. A garden variety New England regional. Medium body, finishes out with a medium-long super-brewed hop thing. Needs work. Ale in the Mail selection.

natejgood (408) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - APR 19, 2007
Pours a light brown color with very little head. It is very clear looking. The beer smells a little like citrus with a hint of florals. This beer is a little bitter with touches of grass and flowers. It also has a bit of a dull, wheaty aftertaste. The beer has a light body with a light fizz.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Medium pale, medium head. Medium everything. The beer does nothing exciting, but its pleasant and has no noticable flaws. Easy drinking, plenty of hop flavor and aroma, good bitterness level. Clean finish. Just a touch watery on the body - I was thinking this was a PA of about 5% ABV before I saw this page.

jimhilt (2451) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Pours a three-fingered white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts and finishes hoppy, true to style, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Forced to buy since it is brewed in NH. $1.50 for a 12 oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2007
Tap. Amber colour, thin whtie head. Aroma is quite frsh Woody/spicy hops, some orange marmalade citrus character as well. Earthy malts, with a touch of sulphur and light yeastiness. Fresh British hops, orange, spicy hops and earthy malts. A bit of breadiness as well. More English pale than IPA, but it’s a decent, easy-drinking pale ale.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Not a very good IPA...the hops weren’t right and the smell was pretty putrid. The pour was a hazy gold with a grapefruitiness to the flavor.
