(bottle - 12 oz) Clear amber color with a thin and creamy white head. Aroma is a combination of toasted malts and toasted almonds. Rather unusual. Flavor is dry and slightly roasted with a very nice nutty flavor along with some dry malts. The finish is dry and a little bitter. I liked it. Jhouston (23) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Had this bad boy from a variety pack. Very Hoppy and sort of reminds me of a nice ale that you would enjoy during late autumn.
Highly recommended and will buy again. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and floral hops. Flavor is sweet and fruity (citrus notes) with some wheat malt and corn in the background. Pretty decent although the malt was a little off-tasting to me.

Bottle. Aroma of toasted malt, butterscotch, orange/red fleshy fruits. Flavor continues strongly with the toasted malts, the butterscotch joins in at the finish along with pleasing hop bitterness. Nice one. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2009

Bottle, courtesy jcwattsrugger. Pours a copper color, with a fizzy white head and wet lacing. Nose of hops, dry wheat, some rye qualities. Bitter. Dry balanced flavors, with some healthy bitterness in the finish. Good representation of the style, tasty, balanced and very drinkable. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - DEC 10, 2008
On cask at GL ? Pours a hazy dark gold with a medium sized creamy beige head. Aroma of bitter hops and light grapefruit. Taste is hoppy bitter with hints of grapefruit. A bit on the watery side. Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours fairly light amber. Good head and solid lacing. Smells of a little malt, fruit, weak. Nothing about this beer impressed me until I sipped it. Excellently balanced taste. Cricket Hill continues to impress me for a small local brewery. Lots of citrus notes there, some lemon and grapefruit topped with a hop punch akin to that of an IPA. I would actually almost consider this an IPA. Finishes hoppy/bitter. Smooth palate with a light, ticklish carbonation. Unlike other tasters, I didn’t find this beer to be bland at all -- very complex and shocking. Very surprising brew, thumbs up. Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a regular white head. Nose is sweet, fruity and malty. I honestly wasn’t expecting much following the other reviews, but I was pleasently suprised, The brew was carmelized peaches with a malty undertone. Very smooth. The mouthfell was thin but the flavors were quite enjoyable. Might go here again, but the price is prohibitive at $4 for a 12 oz. bottle.
