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.

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...

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 nice pattern lacing. Golden with slight haze. Aroma is not strong, like lots of pale ales, but flavor is smooth, nice hops without much bitterness. (Drinking it in Massachusetts, maybe not fresh enough- no date label) -re-rating on 12/1/07 - orange with moderate lacing - citrus and floral hops. lightly malted flavor.
