Hazy golden amber ale with a thick creamy white head. Light caramel malt with floral hops. In mouth, a crisp maltwith floral piney hops, rather short, but good. Trade with Piscator. Thanks Kris. Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Draft- Thai Place. LIght hop nose. Good amber color and light tan head. Hopy flavor with a slight maltiness to it. Fruit flavors in the middle. Not bad. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 17, 2006
poured a nice amber hue with a white head which had good retention. Sweet malty aroma with some hops. Smooth crisp malty flavor wiht a mildly bitter hop finish. StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Rating this from memory after drinking several while in Chicago recently. Thought it a nice and decent APA with an alright amount of hoppiness and fruit flavours. Pretty standard, but when somebody plunks down a bottle of this and a bottle of Old Style on the table....well, the choice should be fairly obvious.

Bottle. Tawny brown body with a lasting foamy head. Caramel, low-medium hops, dried apple chips, light nutmeg, some canned corn juice, very good fruit flavors that are kept in check very well.

Ho hum not much here. Poured an amber color okay head and okay lacing. Aroma was of light fruits. Flavor was the same with a little malts to there. some malts very very thin to me. just an average beer.

Bottle. Clear amber with a thin white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma of caramel malts with some hops. Flavor of caramel malt with some ale esters and a slight hop background. Malt and hops are basically balanced, but only because neither really stands out. A bit thin on the palate. Another run of the mill APA which leaves no real impression. shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Fresh berry malt aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Lightly sweet malt flavor with light hops finish. An easy drinking beer - a bit light on the hops for the style but still very good. jgd0608 (187) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2006
On tap at Curraghs: Amber in color, minimal head. Had nice flavor but was lacking hops. Definetly better ales out there, but overall it was an okay beer TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 12 oz bottle. Beautiful transmitted orange color; has a cloudy/murky reflected color. Initial reaction = not as good as Bass but better than Redhook; put it just under S.Nevada. Actually well balanced. Excellent aroma, decent lacing. Medium to high on the conditioning bite/sting. APA for sure; trying to copy the Brits using indiginous materials...Got a strange buzz from this beer, and I detect the piney-ness which is in their IPA (someone mentioned that this is the Chinook hop). Tastes like thier IPA w/ less hops.
