Hazy, reddish amber body with a large, off-white cover, lasting, nice lace. This was slightly overcarbonated. The nose is quite nice, caramel, grpaes, light black cherry, apricots and kool-aid (fruit punch). Flavor is fruit punch, light caramel, strawberry and citrus. Medium body is highly carbonated, but with patience and plenty of swirling, eventually became nice and soft. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 18, 2007
12oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a hazy, amber color with an orangish tinge; fluffy white head with excellent retention and lacing that coats the glass. Chewy, dried red fruits (cherries, raspberries?) with the slightest hint of a tartness; slightly medicinal and very engaging. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: overcarbonated, with plenty of dried cherries and red fruits; again, somewhat medicinal and syrupy, but very tasty stuff. The overcarbonation keeps it lively in the mouth. Lengthy, earthy and dried fruit finish. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 1, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a murky burnt orange body with a large beige head. Aroma of cherry, orange juice, banana bread, butterscotch, pine, and spices. Flavor of caramel malt, fruit, hops, and breadiness with a fizzy, bit over-carbonated mouthfeel. shadey (2148) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Dark orange/brown color with a huge chunky milkshake head of big bubbles. Aroma is very strong thick hops. Flavor is dark sticky hops. Nice body and a clean finish. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Pours a cloudy copper with a huge tan ghhead. Smells perfumy initially with some malt and nuts. The hops have blended nicely with the malt on the nose. Tastes of tealike hops and lots of malt. Unusual but good.

Big thanks to Styles. OMG what a huge head. The smell of malt and pine. Color was a foggy tea color. Very low carbination, but also very smooth tasting. I tasted lots of malt and hops and somehting sweet I can’t quite put my finger on. Head stays throughout the whole beer. Not much of a bitter aftertaste, although it was present.Nice lacing. Lots of floaties from the hops out of the bottle. Hell Yeah Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2006
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, thanks Harry. Weird murky hazy brown, thick white head. Mild malt and hop aroma, some citrus, hint of spiciness. Not bad. Very citrus hop taste. And watery. Old, musty and thin as well. Pretty good though, just old, but it does lack in body. Interesting stuff, glad I got a chance to try it. blankboy (7788) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry and tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a very hazy orange-brown with an average size diminishing off-white head. Interesting hoppy aroma -- sweet, floral and citrusy. The flavour’s very hoppy and watery at the same time with a decent malt base and a nice bitter finish. Pretty good but a little thin, perhaps a little past it’s prime. HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, my bottle, via trade with Pailhead - thanks!!!. Poured hazy deep orange with a decent straw head. Aroma - strong resin and orange/lemon citrus hops, yeast and light roast malt. Taste is quite hoppy a bit of bottle metal (it IS retired), but still an elegant senior citizen, finish is a tad bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit watery and harsh, astringent, nicely carbonated - this would have been pretty major in its day. beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2006
Bottle. Insanely over carbonated. Hoppy aroma, tainted a bit with a sour nose. Citrus orangy hop flavors, with fairly sweet caramel malt, and the hops become grapefruit toward the end. Lingering clean bitterness. Body was a tad acidic.
