Bottle - big grassy hop nose. Deep, dark golden color with a beautiful, thick head of tiny white bubbles. Tons of hops, lacking malt backbone. This is a very nice one! Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Pours an orange hue with a huge soapy off-white head that’s there for the duration. Strong lemony, piney, and earthy aromas. Good hopping. Plenty of citric bitterness in the taste, mainly of the grapefruit sort. Hard to detect any malt in here. Nice lingering bitter finish. A good hop-head drink.howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2004

Good rocky head, amber/gold color. Big hop aroma, somewhat harsh. Bitter, lots of hop flavor and aroma. This is pretty much just a 1-dimensional, unbalanced hop monster without much malt backbone. Satisfies a hop craving, certainly. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2004
sedimented throughout, must have been one heckuva dry hopping. Aggressively carbonated golden orange body, sticky off white head. nose id wholly hops: piney, minty, floral and a hint of perfume. piney and biting front yields to a bready, toasty malt profile. hoppiness lingers on the roof of the mouth, sticky and flavorful, you’ve got plenty of opportunity to taste this beer. kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2004
On Tap: Lasting white head w/ a medium light amber body. Perfumey alcohol w/ piney & lemony citrus hops. Medium fruitiness and light toasted malt. Bitter and resiny. Fruity(citrus & lemon) hops, light toasty malt, dry bitter finish w/a citrusy hop flavored aftertaste. Fairly 2 dimensional flavor. Medium carbonation, dry/astringent m/f, lighter medium body. Disappointing IMHO. Seems lifeless in the malt balance department.

Dark orange with a small head. Fresh citrus aroma with lots of hops. Taste is very spicy with some grapefruit. Long, dry finish but still very refreshing. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Piney, sweet cotton candy, sweet malt. Citrusy up front. Apple, tingly.. Yummy yummy hops. cathcacr (649) - Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bears beer-snob scrutiny. Sharp hop nose, but milder flavor and mouthfeel. Lingering foam top is lovely. Mild finish. A little dry. Two yums up. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Orange color with yeasty hoppy aroma. Sweet citrus flavor with decent hops.Could use a little more. Finishes with a nice bitterness that lingers. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Orangey colour, steady cottony head. Firm, steady, flowery nose. Lively mouthfeel, maybe a little too much of carbon dioxide. Long, salty finish. Unbalanced. Hopmonster. Not bad.
