Golden beige head light flowery, hoppy aroma slight soapiness light quality palate not not very bitter... turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Orange amber with small head.
Aroma of fruit and hops and a nice light hops flavor made for a easy drinking very good beer MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Grapefruit candy enlivens the relaxing caramel sweetness underneath and thus creates extremely drinkable balance…Resinous hop bitterness appears in the finale with plentiful oranges…Flavorful while being quaffable, a very competent example of the West Coast IPA style with no belligerence, only a smooth but proud personality… unclebleen (620) - California, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours an amber color with a rocky white head. Aroma is that of fresh cascade hops and lots of interesting tropical fruits. Flavor is very hoppy to start then becomes more sweet with dried fruit flavors that is mainly that of prunes and apricots. Body is excellently syrupy but with a dry finish that is quite cleansing. An intersting beer. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Bottle. Pours medium amber, with a small white head that diminished to a ring of bubbles and left nice lacing. Bold, hoppy aroma with lots of sweet toasted malts, citrus and pine. Flavor with lots of the same and a nice lingering hoppy finish. Nice mouthfeel, medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice ale - another good, bold brew from Sonora.

big juicy and chewy aroma spitting forth obnoxious fumes of apricot, mango, pineapple, wet irish setters, and a slightly mildewy book..the covering atop refused to disappear and just sat there thick and frothy with a microscopic orgy of tiny tiny bubbles..sitting was a hazy mass of orangish-amber beer...dirty/organic hop front..with riding bitterness..overripe fruits, dried apricots, and grass flavors follow..some rounded malts sweeten things up at the end..balancing it all out and leaving you refreshed.. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a huge off white head. Nose is light and fruity. Flavor starts off apricot sweet then some citrus and a hint of pine and finishes kinda dry. It's a quaffer. Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Very good IPA. Has a very good balance. Maybe just a little too sweet. Would be nice if it was just a bit higher in alcahol. Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 13, 2003
A decent IPA, nothing special, but wouldn't reccommend it to anyone. Decent head, yet not piney enough jazz88 (2675) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 11, 2003
Bottle. Dark amber color with a laced and sticky tan head. A candy spice hop aroma with a rich flavor. The citrus morphs well with the spice and flower hops. This is good stuff.
