7.2% I think. Overpowering grapefruit flavor with IPA tone. I cant get used to the grapefruit taste even after 2 or more.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004
[email protected] City, DC. A fairly decent APA, some lychee and grapefruit. A bit honeyed/sappy, but finishes a quite dry, not very complex.

Deep yellow with a small clinging white head. Smells of fresh hops in the nose. This pale ale drinks more like an IPA, though. I think the malt could be beefed up a bit for a bit more balance.

SeamusNeko (45) - Anacostia, Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2004
Setting: Served on tap in a pint glass. Appearance: Clear dark honey topped by a frothy and rocky whitish head. Bubbles are evident. Head dissipates to a small, but healthy, layer of foam after a few minutes and leaves all kinds of mad crazy lacing. Aroma: Refreshing snap of citric hops, but not overpowering. Mildly grassy and herby hops are evident as well, but in a more subtle manner. Flavor: Orange marmalade and bitter hops over some nice biscuity malt goodness. British style with the hop profile, but American in proportion. Palate: Nice and bracing, quite the palate cleanser. Overall: Very drinkable. Nice session beer, yet hearty enough to hold its own against blackened chicken.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 20, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. Very nice beer. This looks and tastes buttery. Very good hop.I'd bill it as an ESB. Generously uses Centennial is my guess. No head though.

(Draught) Fruity hops nose. Deep yellow with a thin, dissipating head. Strong cascade hops and tart finish. Good.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Pale amber with a decent white head. Light citrus hop aroma with a little bit of a bready malt aroma. Flavor is noce, quick bitter hop bite followed by a maltiness that lingers in the back of the taste. The body is medium with a quick bitter finish.

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Butter toffee and kumquat aroma. Honey gold, fun skull logo. Sturdy hopping, citrusy. Very, very clean drinking, moderate lingering hops. Medium light sweetness. Brewed properly for the style and mass consumption.
