Bottle. Orange/caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Sweet orange-caramel malt and lightly bitter orange peel hops flavor. Very good. BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Orange pour with a thin clingy white head. Huge floral hop aroma with a little fruit. Juicy taste dominated by floral/citrus hops. Really remarkable at how hoppy the aroma and taste is, but the bitterness doesn’t really linger or tear your head off. Very well made. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Crystal clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of grapefruit, apricot and toffee. The well-balanced flavor is moderately bitter and decently malty. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, grassy finish.

Pours slightly turbid dark straw with a medium, creamy white head, some floaties, and moderate lace. Aroma of hops, malt, fruit, pine, spice. Tastes hoppy, with some malt, fruit, and spice hints. Palate is medium, with a slightly dry finish. Not quite as balanced as I crave with IPAs, but very good nonetheless. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Amber colour, with a nice white head and some excellent lacing. Big foresty (not really pine) hop aroma. Nicely bitter, my initial assessment was that it lacked enough malt to back it up, but subsequent samples later at the Mondiale change my assessment which earned it another point for the flavour. Finish is a touch on the thin side but not so much as to be overly distracting. Very nice beer. Mondiale 3T (Radek/Tiggmtl). KyotoLefty (10675) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 17, 2013
Bottled. Bright golden color with lace. Lemony nose, light bread, Sprite. Lemony flavor with light malts, nice bitter finish. Light and clean. Decent enough. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2003
Crunchy pine and grapefruit hops hanging on the palate, culminating in a dry bark ending...Malt is non-consequential it seems, this a hop quaffer...As pleasantly sense numbing and thirst quenching as Rogue's Brutal Bitter...
