Bottle from BevMo. Slightly hazy orange gold color with a decent beige head. Aromas of caramel and citrus. Medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is biting citrus over caramel. Finish is a bit flatter, but there remains a good amount of bitter. More hop than I expected.

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle... Cloudy light golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is earthy and full of citrusy, piney hops. Slightly oxidized. Great balance, flavor wise. A whisper of pungency from the oxidation/infection; otherwise, a nice marriage of mild to moderate biscuity malt and a modestly bitter, crisp hop bite. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, fairly clean finish. Kudos to Monger for providing this one!

DocLock (10574) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle from beeronthewall. Hazy dark straw pour with 1-finger splotchy off-white head and some orange hues seeping through. The aroma is caramel malty, crisp, with hops, pineapple, black pepper, orange marmalade. Tastes very hoppy, on the dry side, citric, crisp. Almost mouth-puckeringly hoppy and citric and perhaps lacking a bit of malt in the bill, but without a doubt, this is one of the most, if not the most, hoppy and citric golden ales I have yet quaffed, and I enjoyed it a great deal.

This golden ale poured with a frothy off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor with significant hop bitterness at the finish and a carbonated mouthfeel.
