Brown pour w/ a small tan head. Smells of stank and cardboard hints of bad rotten hop. A fairly avg pal... fairly well coated. Stuff is just nasty like their IIPA but w/ less ass maybe. Ratman197 (14838) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
On cask @ Falling Rock poured a clear copper with a large bubbly head. Aromas ofgrapefruit, pine, grassiness and carmel. Palate waslight bodied and dry. Flavors of carmel, grapefruit, and pine with a bitter, slightly dry finish. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Orange-grapefruit-citrus hop nose with toasty underlying malt character. Clear, deep golden body with a large bubbled, white head that recedes to thin ring. Citrus hops are up front in the flavour also with some floral notes and moderately strong bitterness. Sweetness and fruity esters are more apparent in the aftertaste. Light body with fairly strong, aggressive carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005. ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
On cask. Complex aroma of strawberry jam and currants. Very clear amber with no head. Very flavor full with some caramel and a looong bitterness. Slightly oxidized, as cask ales sometimes are, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Syrupy mouth feel and perfect low carbonation. After a half pint, the bitterness is almost burning. Excellent! LApubdog (4) - USA - SEP 19, 2005 does not count
At B&B Pub (with a fantastic steak, if I might add). A bit fruity and more than a bit hoppy... it was good enough for me to not even bother sampling others. It probably helped that I was there with a local who agreed that the Man Beer was the only way to go.

On tap at Falling Rock...interesting beer...I recall the impression of cherries in the aftertaste. I need to try more from these guys. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Pours clear dark amber. Thin head. Faint hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy, grapfruit. Fruity esters. Some roast in finish. Well made, balanced. BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours mahagoney with a small tan head. Grapefruit and fruit hoppy aromas. Grapefruit hoppy and caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and fizzy palate. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2005
On cask at Falling Rock. Reddish brown with a fantastic head. Aroma is all hops of the grapefruit vein. The body is so creamy and thick. Malts are noticeable if you can get through the grapefruit. Impressive. erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2005
On cask at the Falling Rock Tap House. Pours amber with a bubbly head. Aroma of... butter. Some C-hops, but mostly diacetyl. Served at the proper temp! YEAH! About goddamn time I get a properly served cask ale that hasen’t been sitting on line for 2 weeks. Med. heavy body. Grassy and grapefruity hoppiness with just a huge wallop of diacetyl. Hard to get past that. Bitter but not too dry finish.
