Too damn hopy for this beer drinker. I think it tastes like pure shit. I will never put this beer into my body again! GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Draught. Deep amber, hazy. Off white head. Nice flowery hop aroma. Great hop flavor and bitterness with caramel undertones. Delicious. SDalkoholic (2424) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 22, 2005
A much more hoppier nose than other ambers, although, i still can pick out a bit of caramel malt as well. Not much of a head created and the amber ale looks to be brown with reddish tint. In the drink some small notes of caramel sided by a fresh hop profile and strangely enough a minor coconut taste. An okay red ale and quite good for this style. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. Mahogony brown color with a decent beige head. Roasted malt aroma. Malty flavor, with some underlying citrus hops. Clean finish. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Nice mildly sweet and medium hoppy aroma. Almost opaque Amber color. Grapefruit peel bitterness and ample hop flavors. Mild malt and more citrus in the finish. I thought this was an exceptionally well done Amber.

Deep coppery red color with a mid sized light brown head. Citric hops show in the aroma. Some fruity flavors initially, peach and grapefruit followed up by some spicy hops and some caramel malt sweetness. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle, in Arcata, CA. Rich ruby red coloor with nice head. Good malts and hops with a hint of fruit. Real easy to drink, and is one of those brews that somehow seems better than the sum of its parts. I tend to chalk this to good balance. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Dark red color with a decent head. Citrus and other fruits in the aroma. Flavors of malt and a good amount of hops. Bitter to the end. A very nice beer. aspidites (1271) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Good caramel malt notes with some mild raost hints. Good conditioning tight head. some mild fruits green apple orange zest and apricot. with good balanced bittering. Some mild citrus and pine hops in the nose, less on the palate. Clean and soft finish showing some caramel and citrus. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2005
From the bottle this brew pours a slightly hazy red with a tall off-white head. Aroma has a blend of dusty malts and mild hops. Fruit malt start with an almost rotten apple tart taste to the finish. Very bitter in the finish with more residual rotten apple in the aftertaste.
