Very pale ale (almost orange) with a malted hopped aroma. The flavour is citirc and bitterly hopped with a malt edge. A very pleasant beer indeed.

TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle. Leftover from the DC/VA/MD/WV/PA gathering. Had this the night of 11/21/04 in the hotel. Courtesy of chris_o. Clouded orange. Small white head. Nose is hoppy (citrus) and floral with milder sweet notes. Taste is suitably hoppy and releases more floral notes. Nice light maltiness in the background to balance this. Body is rather smooth but bitter. Finishes with more hops and citrus; light spiciness reveals itself as well.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle (500ml). Poured cloudy copper with orange highlights and a good sized frothy white head which was mostly lasting. A sweet tropical hop aroma with strong notes of apricots, pineapple, passionfruit, rich caramel malts and some light piney/floral notes. Flavor was of smooth caramel malts with a mild earthy hop bitterness, guava, pineapple and dry peaches towards the finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a good length finish.
