clear amber, whispy white head, light sweet carmel malt aroma with floral hops, a swirl will kick up some fine head and citrus aroma, touch of drippy lace, good hop flavor on a well balanced carmel malt base with just a touch of sweetness, the sweetness grows into a butterscotch character, nice bitter finish

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Cask from capital ale in Innsbrooke. Big hoppy aroma with a substantial hop flavor. Good malt backbone to go with it. Not dominated by either, although the majority goes to the hops. Nice color, made for an enjoyable beer although next time Id like to have it colder.

Bottle from Greenleafe. Deep coppery pour with aroma of citric hops, mangoey spicy notes, and a solid malty aroma. The taste is caramel malt coupled by a crisp citric hop flavor, and some finishing fruit and spicy hints. Smooth and well made.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle, sampled in May of 2006: Pours a clear copper orange with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Nice, fresh piny grapefruity hoppy aroma has a touch of pale malty sweet balance. Body starts with a fresh green bittering hoppy presence and a touch of malty sweetness before a dry, bittersweet finsih. A crisp, drinkable APA.

22 oz bomber -- Poured with a big ol foamy head. Interesting aroma of malt cookies and hop buds. Odd mix. Musty. Nice hoppiness but with a pretty powerful hoppy aspect. Very good, but different.
