Bottle, from trade with The_Beer_God. O nose, sweet & sour. Orange, grapefruit, caramel, sourdough, grassy. Clean orangy copper color, ok head and a little lacing. Bitter flavors, like aroma with grapefruit steppin up, got a little nuttiness too. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, Sour bitter finish. Tasty amber, had a little of what I call a sour dough thing that I’m not crazy about. Thanks TBG

Can’t say I liked this one. Had high expectations based on the brewery’s rep and the reviews. Not my style, possibly bad bottle (?). A very, very full flavour but something intensely wrong with the hops. Almost sour.

Loads of gratefruit and orange even. I really think this is a FANTASTIC beer! It is the prefect beer to bring over to a friends house to have a good time. Just bring more that one six pack...ah, make that a case.

Copper Coloring with White Head. Floral Hop Aroma..Dry Hop Taste. Simple Brew but a Hop Tasty One at That.

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper, fizzy bone-white 1/4" head, and generous amounts of carbonation. Nice floral hop aroma with an underlying sweet and toasty malt base. Flavor is of toasted malt, slightly sweet, with a well balanced hop bitterness. Finish is long with a complex hop profile. Medium bodied. This is really trying to have a creamy mouthfeel but the forced carbonation fizzyness prevents it. Pretty good beer but heavy filtration has robbed the life from this and left behind a shadow of what it could be.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Pours a nice dark amber color with the perfect amount of froathy offwhite head that stays forever. Looks absolutely delicious. Aroma is a very nice sweet floral citrus smell, slightly caramely and piney at the same time. also delicious. Now time for the taste: flavor starts malty, sweet, and caramely then shifts geers into a pretty hoppy citrus flavor then back into a nice smooth hop/caramel finish. Overall, i found this to be extremely good.

alobar (3732) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Solid amber color with quickly dissipating head. Tastes of hops and some caramel. Not strong on the spices, but still a worthy choice.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - DEC 2, 2005
12 oz. bottle thanks to Kramer17801. Deep amber color with a decent head. Aromas were citrus and vanilla. Flavors were very hoppy. I could have mistook this for an IPA in a blind taste test. Very hoppy on the finish too. Good stuff.
