This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with with yeast swirls softly carbonated brown colored body. The aroma was hoppy and caramel malt. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops herbs mild spice and caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. hotstuff (5279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle purchased at Dilly Deli in Mariemont, OH. Pours a large off-white fizzy head that was mostly lasting, fair quantity of lacing, floaties, hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Caramel, hoppy, grapefrut, and pine nose. Flavor was grapefruit, pine, hoppy, caramel, bitter hops. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. All-in-all a nice brew for this style. jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Copper color with a big-bubbled off-white head. Crisp, fresh hop nose. Flavor of pinapple, grapefruit and orangr rind. The orange sweetness grew as the beer warmed. I wanted more body. Hop finish is almost too harsh. Decent APA. hershiser2 (3825) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Paid $2.79 for a bomber.
Nice deep amber with a huge head.
A bit IPAish in the nose. Sweet citrus, slightly hoppy.
Bittersweet, tinge of an IPA, but far from it. Slightly citrusy, but lacking a lot of hop. Nice, but not overwhelming. Would make a great session brew. But not hearty enough (or original enough) to make me buy it again, other than to drink all night. Terminus (3739) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2006
22oz bomber. thanks to vyvvy for picking this up on his trip out east. clear orange with a small off-white soapy head. nose is lighty piney with some diacytl unfortunately. flavors are grapefrupt, resinous hops, and diacytl. the diacytl isnt huge in this beer but just enough to bring down the overall enjoyment here. body is somewhat fizzy and over-cabonated. finish shows the diacytl and piney hops. i would like a diacytl less sample next time

I’m getting more of a spruce sap-type aroma more than a citrus hop aroma, but whatever. This is quite hoppy for an APA in aroma and flavor. In fact, it verges on being an IPA instead of an APA. The body is fairly light, despite a nice caramel and wood maltiness. SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Thanks to OhioDad for this one!
Pours a hazy dark amber with a generous pff-white head.
Light citrus aroma.
The flavor is well balanced, with both sweet malts and bittering hops represented equally. A gentle, yet firm drying bitterness describes the finish. I could drink a session with this one. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours to a nice coppery/orange colored body with a nice frothy off-white head. The aroma is fruity and citrusy. Grapefruit and pine, little bit of pineapple. The flavor is quite malty. Dry grassy biscuits, light sweet honey. The palate is nicely bitter. Medium body with a nice texture. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2005
22 oz. Amber with fluffy, thick off white head. Grassy, hoppy aroma with a sweet orange twang. Sweet malts then light bitter hops. A relly nice beer I could only imagine would be fantastic on cask. Nice and hoppy. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2004
Copper/amber in colour. Aroma of cirtus, flowers, sugar, cream, oranges and grapefruit. Flavour had some caramel malt, slight sweetness, hoppy, citrus (oranges and mild grapefruit). Medium body. Finishes with a hoppy bitterness, lingering but dry.
