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. radagast83 (8200) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2006
12 oz bottle. Thick white head forms, but diminishes slowly. Sweet orange flavor, reminds me of IPA a bit, but deffinately an APA. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2010
12 oz. Pours a cloudy bright medium amber with a dense and sudsy platinum blonde head. Mild sweet biscuity caramel nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, toast, biscuit, and a little bit of pine on the mid palate. Not much happening here. No flaws, either, but there you are. FROTHINGSLOSH (7944) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 This is the first beer I have had from this brewer. Sampled from a rather cool looking 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium yellow-gold color with a small white head that disappeared almost immediately. The aroma is sharp floral and fruity hops. The flavor is sharp floral and fruity hops with very little to back them up. No malt balance to speak of and the mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery. Not a terrible beer but it could be so much better. jonas (7757) - 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.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Nice aroma but a little mild. Pours beautifully, nicely carbonated, great colour. Didn’t have the problem of too much foam like some of the other posters mentioned. I was quite pleasantly surprised with this beer, nice and hoppy. Loved it, another great American Pale Ale. I hope to get more in the future. larsniclas (7153) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2009
Golden with a white head.
Fruity citrus and some toffee in the aroma.
Soft and malty mouthfeel with mild toffee. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle sampled in November 2006: Pours a clear light golden with a thin, wispy white head. Lightly pale malty sweet aroma has a mild piny hoppy balance. Body starts lightly sweet and grainy with a drier, thin bittersweet finish. A fairly bland pale ale. HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle (12oz). Gold/amber colour, nose of sharp hop & citrus. Quite carbonated, a little cloudy at the end of the pour, no sediment in my bottle. Light lacy head with small bubbles. I’m not a hop-head, but this one is fairly balanced - medium hop, fruitiness, only slightly bitter linger. Not up to Stone quality, but drinkable, didn’t scare me off with its hops, so not that strong. I didn’t get much malt, though. Pretty average. ekstedt (6937) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle (35 cl), thanks larsniclas. Hazy golden, small white head. Potatoeish dusty malt aroma, some vague hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with moderate bitterness. Boring.
