Pours a yellow color with a hint of amber. Crisp, floral, hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor, little bit of sweetness. Pretty tasty up front but not much of a finish. bierchik (95) - lakewood, California, USA - JUL 29, 2004

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Pours a light lyellow/amber with a small white head. Aromas of light hops and malt. Very wel balanced, yet nothing overly impressive. 3fourths (9386) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Pineapple juice, melon, bubble gum, peach syrup... man the hop odor is all sorts of unpleasant. It’s sweet too, seems under-attenuated, goopy and syrupy for under 5%. I think they mail it in with this one.

This produced an average sized head topping a light amber beer. Nice aroma of cookie dough and orange. Starts with a light malt flavor that ends with a mild bitterness and dry finish. Good APA. Hangover (1164) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Clear amber color, with no lasting head. Very fresh and hoppy aroma with a nice whiff of oranges. More orange in the taste, as well as a few floral notes. Active carbonation on the tongue, with some maltiness towards the finish, along with the advertised vanilla, albeit barely discernable. Fantastic finish. Very clean, very nice. I would actually recommend seeking this out if you are a fan of pale ales... probably one fo the best session beers I have yet to drink. Incredibly quaffable.

A pretty good APA. Light amber color and almost no head. It has a good hop presence and quite a bit of malt sweetness as well. Somewhat boring palate/mouthfeel and the sweetness may be a bit much. Smooth and pretty well rounded. Extremely drinkable and better than I anticipated. HumuloneRed (765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Clear golden copper color. Nice head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing. Grassy/apple aroma with a woodsy/eathy note. I also get some green olive in the nose. This beer is soft on the palate. Malty with some oak background. Light silky finish. This is a good around the hose beer. It isn’t a palate braker. unclebleen (620) - California, USA - APR 6, 2004
Pours a medium amber color with a nice white head and decent lacing. Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Flavor is quite sweet with some bitterness especially in the aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel but not a bad beer.
