Clear and glistening bright rusty orange color. Semi-musty nose of starchy thick oak and pine hops, some buttery and corn-like malts and a dusty and arid bread crust scent. Slightly hoppy, slightly tinny, slightly... funky... tastes like a light-struck bottle actually, a bit sour. HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured slightly cloudy orange with an average white diminishing head. Aroma of slightly sickly malt, hint of pineapple and citrus juice, faint stale hops. Taste of slightly sour grains (corn, rye etc), weak malt and perfumy hops. Mouthfeel watery and flat - not a very good PA. Tmoney99 (15120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with an average rocky white head that was lasting. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Moderate sweet small bitter flavor with a short finish. Below average brew. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Pours a light amber. Aroma is kind of sweet, with some hop bitterness. Flavor is grainy/citrus with a dry finish. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2005
12oz. bottle. Pours a pale copper with small, fizzy, quickly diminishing head. Smells of citrus hops and a little metallic, maybe even a small amount bready maltiness. Not very bitter at all- though not a bad beer, I’ve had better.

Nice copper color with fruity aroma. Flavor is difficult to pin down (mild hops, cirtus, and woodsy). Smooth and refreshing. Me likey. thelandstander (46) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 I don’t know what it was but I enjoyed this beer. It was a good contrast between flavor, bitterness, color, and mouth feel. It is by no means great, but it is a very solid offering from the people at North Coast. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2005
12 oz bottle. Not much aroma, looked ok with a fading head, and some lacing. Flavors were a little better. Some hoppiness but mostly bread and yeast. Not great, but I would drink it. Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Certainly nothing wrong with it, I suppoe. Kind of a Cheerio’s smell to it, Flavor is a hint of woods, the cereal again - maybe whole grain toast. Well made, but not distinguished. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2005
12oz. bottle. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Metallic aroma with some citrus hops. Mildly bitter hop flavor with some biscuit malt in the background. Very bland beer from a company I really like.
