Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere's ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.

Every time I drink this it reminds me of why this is my old "standby" ale. When my knucklehead friends reach for a Bud, I grab one of these. Very nice sweet floral aroma. Honey colored, with a very smooth white head. The flavor is smooth drinkable, with a nice hoppy finish. Wonderfully flavorful on the palate, sweet, floral and bitter. Very nice beer, very well done.

Very pretty IPA color of deep gold. SLightly clouded, how I like it. Very nice nose of fruits and flowers. The hop taste is distinctly cascade and it caught me a bit off guard. For a minute, I thought I might be tasting an I2PA. It has a high IBU count, I’m sure, but tasty nonetheless. A nice beer.

Cloudy orange with yeast sediment with a medium white head that diminishes fast. Has a strong hoppy fruit aroma. Has a smooth balance that I didn’t expect given the aroma. Nothing extreme in any way here. Solid malt, good hops, and a little citrus taste.

An overall dissapointment. This brew pours a glden hue with a small head. Aromas of a lager, and flavors of the same. This may be heavily hopped, but it is also heavily malted. I couldn’t tell this was an IPA due the the lager taste and absence of deecent hop flavoring.... I would have guessed an english style pale or a steam beer.

nice rocky white tan-tinted head that lasts! golden color body w/ brownish hues at the center. nice hoppy nose, light flower. slight sweet malt too. hoppy, banana taste, good carbonation. no afertaste! excellent NorCal sesh’ beer. lacing on the glass has super sticking power.

Amber color with little head. Hopy aroma and taste. Perhaps a little citrus. I think this may be a pinch overrated, but it is still better than the average.

Amber coloring. Little/No Head. Very Hoppy Aroma and Taste. Sweet. Given the percentile, I’d have to disagree and place it as an above average beer...but little better.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Sweet citrus aroma with lots of hints of orange. Yummy. Slightly hazy blonde/golden color with a small white head. Malty to start with hoppy bitterness to finish. I dont know, seems kind of overcarbonated and it just doesnt mesh for me.(8/4/5/3/11)~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~Amazing that it has taken me 10 years to get back to rating this beer. Time flies. 12 ounce bottle The aroma has some floral hop notes, some grassiness, and actually a little banana character. Weird. Light spiciness, too. Transparent golden-orange body with a medium, fairly strong whitish head present. Starts with a bit of a piney astringent hoppiness. Light pale and crystal maltiness and sweetness comes through in the middle, before this finishes with a modestly bitter grassy hop flavoring. A solid APA, and I could have seen this being totally freaking mind-blowing 40 years ago.
