Smells of citrus hops. Pours a clear dark copper color with a nice white head. Taste is very hoppy. Grapefruit, very sour. Delicious, the fresh hops give a stronger more fruity hop presence. Palidor19 (3186) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
quite an pleasant taste with very herbal hops that hits the initial palate and stays around the entire taste, medium bodied with malts, tasty nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 The aroma is a hop experience with citrus and pine followed by caramel malt. The appearance is copper gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is average. The overall quality is high. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2007
A nice surprise to find this on the shelf at BevMo. Pours clear copper with a standard white head, no different than their pale ale. Big, wet hops in the nose. Tons of resin and pine draw you in. Clean and crisp mouthfeel without too much carbonation. A hop party in the taste. Resin, grapefruit, oranges, and pine are balanced perfectly with the malt back. Drinks like an IPA with the hop profile and taste of an IIPA. Outstanding.

Thanks to Joebrew for sharing. Orange color with plenty of off-white head. Sweet citrus hop nose. Solid hoppy body with enough bitterness to make it thirst quenching. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Draft. A nice fresh hop ale. The aroma of hops is nice and strong without overbittering the beer. Pretty tasty. Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Pours a clear amber-orange with a large, pitted, frothy, beige head that diminishes slowly, leaving sticky, web-like lace in its wake. The nose is of, well, fresh hops. Clean citric, lightly piny and mildly resinous hops with a sweet caramel backing; quite nice. Medium-bodied and super-slick the palate finishes with solid bitter hopped finish that squeezes your tongue and stays around for a while after you swallow. The flavor follows the nose perfectly with a solid resinous, lingering finish. A solid IPA and one definitely worth try. Foxbush (2004) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2012 This was enjoyed at the Capital Ale House in Richmond. This beer was recommended by the waiter. It is a good ale. The color was clear amber and a nice head. It was just called a Harvest Ale. I felt it was a little thin. It could have some more body. I could enjoy most any time. Nice citrus flavors. Great balance with a great finish.

Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: The beer is a clear copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Big piney hops aroma with caramel malt and herbs. Medium body with earthy malt and herbal hops flavors. Hints of citrus fruit and dough too. The finish is moderately bitter and leaves a lingering hoppiness. Solid all around.
