3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden color, nice but not lasting head. Fruity aroma with some hops. Starts slightly malty and fruity and gets soon hoppier, finishes bitter. Complex aftertaste. A good surprise.
12oz bottle(9/02)-An orangish amber body with an aroma of hops and malt. taste was the same with a pretty decent hop flavor. Not bad. RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Had this beer on 10/2/2002. Aroma is mild malt scent. Color was an orange/amber with ok carbonation and head. Taste is mild with a nice hoppyness. Overall I think its a good beer. User37895 (3085) - - JUN 5, 2006
Poured with a very impressive head, which provided great lacing. Actually, the appearance was very nice for a pale ale. Hopping was detectable in the flavor and aroma with some citrus overtones (but not a lot of grapefruit going on). Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Man it’s 92 degrees at beer thirty in the morning is the Valley. Yeasty and hop citrus aroma. Copper color to the body with small white head that settled to a thin layer on top of beer. Left some good lacing. Carbination was good with some some good bubble action in the body. Dry hop citrus flavor. Left a dried fruit aftertaste. Sight bitterness and coll and crisp on the palate. Good Beer. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Bottle poured a cloudy orange color with lots of floaties and a light skim of a head that layed across the top of the beer.
Aroma of Malt, hops and citrus.
Flavor is medium powered hops and citrus,oranges with a clean crisp hops finish.
Good, easy drinking, refreshing beer. I have stood at the same place that the gila monster is sitting on the label!

Slightly cloudy copper amber color, no head to speak of, hop citrus aroma, nice not overbearing, Hop taste comes right in on first sip it was almost to bitter, more bitter than flavorful. A good thirstquencher Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Color: a clear, bright apricot, with tiny, yeasty(?!?) travellers swimming hither and thither. Head: small, brief, white.
Aroma is soft amd swept clean, but slowly unfolds with malty tones of caramel and nuts. Faintly fruity, otherwise lacking in hops.
On palate, a bit sharp, at first, with a coppery twang. Eventually, hops assert themselves, but the mouthfeel was not a pleasant experience. The roughness I felt subsides some, and the pieces come together more in the middle. Still, the flavors compete a bit too much. Something about what I could only call a "dull, ringing aftertaste" spoiled this ale for me. Body is medium, texture good, but not a smooth ride, when that’s what’s called for with a pale ale.

Clear dark orange beer with no head. Weak fruity and little hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor, quite thin specially in the finish. Orange notes also. Some dryness.
Picked this up in four corners country in Arizona. Beautiful copper color with one hell of a hop assault on the tastebuds. Eye-opening, bitter aftertaste. I’d definitely buy it again. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Clear medium orange color, with a small white head. Very nice, IPA-ish hop bite, very criosp with a solid malty body and overall wood-like characteristics.
