Pale amber colour. Hoppy, citric nose with notes of vanilla. Pretty light bodied. Flavour is somewhat American PA-style, has a nice hoppiness with a restrained dryness/bitterness. Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2005
Brewtopia bottle. Yellow with a fizzy white head. Smelled hops and malts. Tasted real good, malts with a good balance of hops. Finished with a lasting hp after taste. hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Bottle at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Clear, yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Malty and fruity aroma with notes of butterscotch, toffee and apple blossom honey. Flavor has a good malt backbone. It’s very generously hopped and dry with lots of toffee and grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, crisp, moderately bitter finish.

2004 bottle at Julio’s Spring Beer Festival, 4/02/05. Clear golden-yellow body, small white head, fair retention, some lacing. Aroma of simple, citrus hops and light fruity yeast. Little bit of pale malt to balance, some dry hay-mineral-like notes. Flavor is dry and hoppy, bordering astringent. Fruits, minerals, some iron in there that dosent belong and a bit of soap. Boring, unwavering hops bitterness, little malt backbone, medium body, moderate carbonation. Yawn.... Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Very dissapointing. Orange coloured. Aroma and flavour are lager-like. Slightly metallic finish. Rather thin. Not very hoppy at all.

bottle...clear orangish pour with medium white head. Floral hop aroma, some skunk aroma also. Crisp, one dimensional. Floral hop flavors, some lingering bitterness. Maybe a hint of malt, however mostly uninteresting. Some grapefruit bitterness to finish. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Not a hoppy as i expected, anda lot of malt charachter in my view for an IPA. Malt character seemed to be slightly corny. It was still a decent brew. It poured a yellowishorange color. Most IPA’s i have had where a deep orange or kind of an amber brew. spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Clean, hoppy nose with a touch of citrus. Medium orange color. Nice crisp flavor, with an equally dry, crisp finish. Very drinkable. Would buy again. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Cloudy Orange, white head. Citruy sweet aroma. Crispy, cany orange slice flavor, with hints of pine. Earthy, "dirty", peppery finish. Nicely enjoyable. Dorwart (2590) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Decent head. Slightly rocky and leaves some decent lacing. Orange and hops in the aroma. Bit of bread and malt also. Light carbonation. Color is a medium orange. Flavor is a little weak. Decent hops but not much substance. Some bitterness with more orange. Finish is clean and dry and slightly bitter. A decent pale ale.
