UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Amber with a thin veil. Heavenly citric nose. Excellent balance on a solid malt base. Beautiful goodness of those NW hops. God, I love beer. Mumpu (46) - USA - JUL 5, 2006
Pours deep amber with an enduring off-white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of zesty hops. Quite sweet at the start, it finishes with a nutty, spicy flavor worthy of a good Belgian ale. The pine, citrus, and floral hop notes are in great harmony. I picked up this beer somewhat by accident and found a new favorite. TuckahoeJoe (12) - Tuckahoe, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2007
I had this one on tap at House of Brews in Manhattan. I really enjoyed this APA. It had a deep coppery color and an off white head with good legs. It had the appearance of a malty sweet ale but once your nose gets near it, you know it’s well hopped. Strong floral scent and a not too bitter citricy flavor abounds. This is for hop lovers!. I don’t understand some of the other ratings on this beer---must have had a flat/stale keg. I agree with another rater who said he could drink a case!

Beer pours pretty clear burnt orange color with a totally retained beige colored head. Aroma is mostly citric hops, a nod to grapefruit juice also caramel. Flavor is really delicous. Very citrically hoppy, but in a very fresh fruit juice kind of way. Could drink a case of these easy. DuffMan (10728) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange-tinted amber with a moderate dense yellow-tinted head. Very pleasing aromas of fresh lychees and subtle spice. Lovely balance of sweet alt and fruity aromatic hops (lychee, melon) with a finish that s quite quenching and surprisingly low on bitterness. A real treat!

Appearance: Deep copper (orange high lights), off white head, slight haze
Flavor: Balanced towards the hop (bitterness), strong malt back bone with hop flavoring
Mouth feel: Medium body, a tingling effervescence on the side of the tongue.
Overall Impression: Refreshing and hoppy with strong malt support system.
