Wow. A total mismatch of caramelly crystal matl and massive grapefruit. Nice try but a washout. Ew! jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2005
On tap at New Hope. Pretty, clear copper color with a medium beige head.
Sweet aroma of citrus hops and malt. Bitter hop flavor dominates the small amount of sweet malt that I could detect. One dimensional, but fortunately it is a pretty good dimension. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Tap at New Hope. Smells like citrus, pine, orange and caramel. Kind of like Arrogant Bastard. Taste was really smooth but a bit one dimensional. There was kind of a peach yogurt taste in there as well. I got a growler of this because I was impressed. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2005
#300 was celebrated at the New Hope location and this was a great beer to do it with. Pours a red amber with an average size tan creamy nicely lacing head. Aroma of sweet citrus and floral hops. A great hop and malt balance coming through in the aroma. Even started picking up some roasted malts. Flavors of the same with maybe some caramel but also picked up a bit more of the alcohol in the taste, left a slight burning, yet overall warming on a nice cold November day.

[At GABF 2004] A clear copper colored beer with a beige head. The aroma is very hoppy, while the flavor is a combination of caramel and hops. The alcohol is very well hidden - very easily drinkable.

Draft at the Leigh Valley Brewfest in Easton, Pa. From the New Hope, Pa location. Ambers to me a quite boring. This was basically a normal amber with some extra hops. Was a little for bitter than a normal beer bothe that was it. Nothing else stood out. SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
A little overboard for the style, the hops didn’t blend well with the somewhat weak malt profile AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2004
The hops basically jumped out of the glass, stuck its hand down my throat, and swung me around by my uvula above its head. A wunderbar beer if you want something to sip. I literally could diagram which taste buds are responsible for registering hop bitters while imbibing this libation. Strong but excellent, drink this beer when you want to be kicked in the ass by flavor, not quantity. About 3 of these and my tongue would rot and fester from the amazingly hoppy yet great taste. My only compllaint about this beer is that the hops so overpowered the malt that I honestly couldn’t tell that it existed, except for the rich color. The most opaque amber color ever conceived, I know the malt flavor would "knock my socks off" if I could discern it among the fortituous hop bitter flavor. pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2004
On draft in New Hope. Gorgeous pint: creamy head, thick lacing. Up there with the double IPAs of late: DFH 90 and Great Divide Hercules. Big hop presence, alcohol well hidden, a big flavorful brew, a touch less aggressive than the DIPAs. Worth the trip to New Hope. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bitter and rigid, but wonderful. Nice regal-looking color. Sweet palate. A new taste in a New Hope. (200th rating.)
