It has been several years since I had this and i thought I’d give it another try. The aroma is not a strong as I remember, but maybe that is due to the advent of the over-the-top hopping style in vouge lately. Anyway the aroma is subtle and grrassy; it poured with a decent if short lived head. The flavor is balanced and on the dry side, which I like with a somewhat bitter finish. There is little evidence of the caramel sweetness that so many brewers seem to use to balance their hopping levels, which I also like. Overall a well made beer; not as agressive as I remember it, but more subtle in comparason to other American Pale and IPA’s. Well done.

Nice all around good ale. Not too malty, not too hoppy, not too anything. Just a nice smooth ale. This is one of those American Pale Ales for those who usually don’t like pale ales. A must try.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2005
On tap at Blind Tiger. Hazy amber, thin white head. Slight citrusy aroma. Pleasant citrusy hops with some malty sweet cloves. Not a lot going on, but still enjoyable to drink.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - APR 22, 2005
Poured a redish brown with a medium head. Nice citrus aroma. Flavor was a nice balance between Citrus hops and malt. This is a very drinkable APA... Not a kick you in the face with hops like I like but very nice...

35,5 cl. bottle. Great fresh aroma with lots of malt. Beatiful golden body w. rich, off-white head. Fabulous malty flavor with long, semi-bitter finish. Very nice, smooth mouthfeel. Overall an excelent ale!

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2005
This is the type of hoppiness I can live with. A very smooth flavor, with just the right amount of bitterness. Slightly dry, with a good finish. Very drinkable and I’d have again.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 This beer has extremely nice, clean, crisp, well-balanced, citrusy Cascadian hops flavors. Good malt character too but not at all sweet. Style borders on IPA with its substantial, aromatic bitterness. A fantastic offering from a company with such a large distribution network.

Copper colored with white head that left a lille lacing on the glass. Hop and citrus aroma. Nice balanced taste with a bit of sharpness from the hops and some hints of grapefruit that linger on the aftertaste. Clean dry mouthfeel. I like it.
