Pours with a Reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick ehad with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a nice hoppy, piney note showing through. Medium bodied and smooth. y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - APR 15, 2006

On draft at O’Briens. Arrived in the glass a beautiful, clear copper color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasty and caramel malts, balancing of floral and citrus hops. Nice crisp hop flavor upfront, citrus, lemon with a balancing malt backbone, toasty and light fruity malts, lemon peel in the finish. Light to medium body, with prickly carbonation.

On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Serious cascade hop aroma. Ungodly thick head with dynamite lacing. Oddly, the hop flavor is medium and does not match the aroma. A very pleasant malty body and palate. Good beer.

Had this while I was on vacation in San Fran. I didn’t have a notebook with me so I’ll give it the average rating for now. Definitely not bad, though. KUEric (978) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Might have had a strange batch as the head came pouring out of the top of the bottle. The pour also had an explosive head. Another explosion was that of the aroma. A very floral, lemony, citrus aroma. Some undertones of caramel, malts, and hops. A great aroma. It also had an orange-brown-amber color beneath that head. The flavor is quite nice as well. A much stronger precense of hops than in the aroma. Flavor also consisted of some sweet caramel, some cool malts (a part of the mouthfeel), lemon, a touch of prunes and some floral fruity flavors as well, also felt there might have been some pine. A good flavor. Nothing too strong, dominant or impressive, but all very good flavors and in a nice balance. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle. Nice sweet flavor, and great aroma. Taste lingered for quite some time. Malty, fruity flavors. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2006
Big rocky head on top of this deep amber coloured ale. Interesting aroma of toast in addition to caramel maltiness and earthy, somewhat spicy hops. Some citrus appears among the earthy, toasted caramel flavours, never at any point sweet, finish is quite dry. Medium-bodied. An extraordinary amber ale. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2006
From a 12 oz. long neck attractive silk screened brown bottle with a blurb about the APA on the back of bottle and no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a clear red hued amber with a foamy pale tan head that reduced to a sticky, thin bubbly lacing. Had a nice tasty, toasted caramel malt aroma, a little bubblegum as well, piney hop notes along with citric, fruity scents. Moderate carbonation and a smooth, textured medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. A good balance between hop and malt flavors, a fruity start, then piney and citric, a good rolling hop bitterness on the tongue, an underlining caramel and toasted biscuity maltiness with a caramel malty finish with a lingering sour citric hop bite in the aftertaste.
