Untouchable indeed. Clear color. Smells like soap, weeds, and bitter orange peels. Tastes like Lemon Pledge. Artifical and sticky. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Yelloey/gold with a soapy nose. Some orange zest and cherry notes. Only a slight malt showing it's sweetness. Finish is flowery and soapy. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Pours a deep gold color with a tinge on amber, medium light tan head and thin lacing. Flavor has typical floral hops, with a touch of malt. 3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Medium amber hue, small head. Nice rich sweet hop aroma of grapes and grapefruit. Flavor is more like a pale ale while the aroma is a fantastic hop carnival like a top-notch IPA. Stale hop taste towards the end and a typical subdued finish could not back up the aroma. jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2003
Citrus, flower and yeast aromas.
Nice amber color, low head.
Fruity (citrus) and dry with some pineneedle., medium bodied. Aftertaste is rather mellow.

High marks for bottle design (no place to score that but possibly worth noting). Nice amber appearance, piney-citrus hops aroma. Someone may have mixed up the recipe with an IPA cuz this really smells and tastes like one; which means it doesn't work very well as an APA. As an IPA, it's mediocre. It's drinkable but I think it needs some rework. JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Light amber color with a taller light beige head. Orange zest with a hint of light toffee. Initial fresh hops flavor followed by, well... more hops flavors. Somewhat sweet and floral. A real thin bitterness in the finish. Not untouchable, but not alot to embrace. jazz88 (2683) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Bottle. A medium golden color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong with a touch of fruit. A bitter, dry, hoppy flavor. The malts are not balanced. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
Hazy light orange color. Citrusy, tropical fruit aroma. Fruity bitterness in the body, onesided and uninteresting. Oakes (18167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2003
Orangey amber; foresty, earthy, hop-dominated aroma. Chewy crystal malt, slight lemon rind...quite bitter and vaguely medicinal.
