7.75% Cloudy amber - brown beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft and semi dry with fine carbonation. Soft caramel malt base. Big resinous hops. Bitterish pine and lesser skunk and grass. Mild hop sting. Balances well with the sweet malt. Semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 Draught at Toronado, San Francisco. Clear dark amber, small head. Strong citric hop aroma. Sweet with clean crystal malt profile, but this beer is dominated by massive hops that hides some sticky sweetness well. Really hoppy and megabitter. The hops makes me forget about it’s drawbacks and I find myself enjoying this beer tremendously.

12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy dark orangey amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of pungent grapefruits, piney and resinous hops, orange rind and caramel malts - quite high bitterness. Flavour of orange rinds, grapefruits, piney, citrusy hops, and just enough malt backing. While being quite bitter, it remains highly drinkable. Oakes (19909) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2006
Slightly hazy dark amber. Massive citric, piney aroma with crystal malt underpinning. Rich and chewy, with a piney, woody bitterness. Only a kiss of sweetness for balance. Has a unique toasty quality. Drinkable for the style.

Amber in color with a white head. Sweet tropical fruit, sugar, and citrus notes. Some mango, pineapple, and grapefruit notes. A hint of booze, sweet caramel, and grass. Tastes of pineapple, mango, peach, and grapefruit. A bit of floral hops, very light pine, and plenty of caramel malt and sweetness. bhensonb (16386) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 2011

Bottle poured a golden orange with an off white head. Aromas of pine and citrus. Palate is smooth but resiny. Flavor has a sweet malt backbone with flavors of grapefruit and a hint of oranges and pine. This beer has a nice long lasting bitter aftertaste.
