An orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of flowers and hints of grapefruit. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of hops ans grapefruit.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Bottled. Amber colour, clear, no head. Rich grapefruit aroma. Sweet and medium bodied. Hoppy, fruity lychee flavour. Soapy, clean mouthfeel. Lingering bitter finish.

Draft at Churchkey. Clear golden color, white edge head. Nice aroma of sourdough bread. Taste has decent malt, not very bitter, decent body. Plain but very drinkable.

The Three C’s strike again! Just plain delicious - I would argue better than Tupper’s Hop Pocket.

bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle. Citrusy hop aroma, not detecting malt. Amber color with a foamy off-white head. It laced after awhile. A bit thin bodied. Assertive carbonation. It’s hoppy. Arguably floral, don’t know what happened to the citrus. There is malt in the background, but on through the finish this is about hop. Hoppier than not a few IPAs.

Tmoney99 (14374) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle. Deep amber with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with great lacing. Moderate smooth hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Moderate balanced bitter sweet flavor with a smooth bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew and I will share the other 5 with freinds.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2002
(draft) Clear amber,with little head. Grapefruit-Cascade hops aroma, but not overpowering. Decent malt backbone with relatively restrained hops (OK --it’s still hoppy, but they could have made it much moreso). Goes down grapefruity bitter. Delicious.

2.9
Drake (13652) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Sampled at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma of floral and citreus hops. The taste is big citrus hops with some floral notes, caramel and a bitter finish. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness.

3.6
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber color with a descent off-white head. Pleasant bouquet of floral and grapefruit. Flavor of sweet malt and hops.

3.5
Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 14th, 2005: Light amber color with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Fairly hoppy aroma with a pinch of malt. Medium-bodied and well-rounded with a decent amount of hops taste, as well as sweet malt and citrus. The finish is earthy and short with the bitterness disappearing quickly. Overall a well-made beer whose only real shortcoming is being so straightforward it really is not memorable.
