Tap @ Pumphouse. Hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Pineapple, grapefruit, tropical fruity, a touch piney hoppy aroma. A little resiny, grapefruit, pineapple fruity, hoppy flavor. Alright.

Marheb (6028) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
Profil sapiné d’un bout à l’autre avec une forte amertume bien appuyé par son côté croustillant. Buvabilité légèrement ralenti par l’amertume florale, presque végétale.

(draft at Trinity 9/20/10). Clear light copper color. Medium white head. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Flavor of the same, with light malt. Avg duration. Light bitter finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Good lacing.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2010
Draught. Big fresh-hop aroma- citrus and pine. Cloudy amber-brown, no head. Very nice sweetness, low bitterness with good citrus character. Enjoyably well-balanced with a dry mouthfeel.

From the Jug at the Pumphouse Brewery & Restaurant, Longmont 08/10/2008 (As Hot Shots Harvest Ale 2008) Hoppy aroma. Golden coloured and hoppy with a pine fruit flavour. Crisp and slightly bitter lasting finish.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2008
"Hot Shots Harvest Ale," sampled in July 2008: Probably one of the best-tasting beers I’ve had at the Pumphouse. Deep amber with a creamy head and lingering lace. Smooth, soft and weighty on the tongue; rich texture. Really rich and flavorful malts with tremendous depth -- toffee, caramel, big cocoa, brown sugar, toasty nuts and a hint of tobacco. Hops were very complementing -- flavor-wise and bitterness-wise. Wafty hints of sugary pine and snappy orange. Awesome stuff. Wish they had it on all the time.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Tap @ Pumphouse: Poured a hazy dark amber color with an off-white head. The malt stands out. Toasty and nutty but a decent citrusy hop component. The flavor was hoppy. Grapefruit and citrus that was fairly strong and lasted a long time past the malt. Mild-moderately bitter but short. Medium body.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07 called Hot Shots Harvest Ale: Deep ruby orange copper pour has a frothy clingy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity hops and lightly sweet and toasty caramel malt. Body starts with a nice light malty sweetness and big crisp citrusy hoppy balance. Finishes flavorful and bittersweet with a pleasant light complexity. A good IPA.
