UPDATED: MAR 2, 2005 Draught. Light color. Nice, hoppy smell to it. Tastes like a decent PA, not too strong but unique enough to set it apart. Bubbly taste, finishes dry and slightly hoppy. A very decent session beer.

Bottle. Enticing hop aroma, grapefruit along with subtle undertones of clove and almond essence. Slightly malty with medium length hoppy finish. Some sediment apparant - although Iím not sure if this is a BCA.

One of the better examples of what a pale ale should, nay, must taste like. Fuity, hoppy, bubbly goodness slakes any thirst (well especially the thirst for beer). I like this one.

Light orange. Medicinal aroma that is truly repulsive. Itís like smelling the inside of an antibiotics container, although there are hints of citrus fruits, peach and spicy hops. The flavor, however, is very distinctive, unique and enjoyable. A lovely fruit filled malty sweetness with hints of honey, all balanced by a generous supply of spicy, herbal and citrusy cascade hops. Much better as it warmed. A pretty good beer overall.

Draught, at Rover. Dark amber with white head, nice lacinga. Aroma and flavor of hops, notes of flower. Light bitter, long duration. Well balanced.

How cosmopolitan! An auusie finds this American beer in London. And it is an accessible beer! Oh well, I found it so it must be. This must be one of the old men of the APA stable, as I know I tried the steam beer and porter a long time ago. The colour starts out well, a good amber hue with nice creamy head. The hop aroma is well resented and it comes through well on the mouthfeel. Oh for a beer like this to be accessible down here.

Gold color with foamy white head. Aroma of hops and some malt and yeast. Tasted crisp and bitter finish. Good, not great

I could drink this all day. Bitter and crisp, wonderful hop aroma. One of those brews that lets you know America kicks ass. The six pack disappeared quickly.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2005 White head that left nothing on the glass -- very bubbly, not foamy. Bronze color. Smell is a little hoppier than I expected. Flavor is pretty malty with a citrussy hops finish. Not much to it. I was disappointed, but then again, I was on anti-biotics when I had it. Iíve read this classified as an IPA. It is not. ratebeer.com has it as an APA, which sounds much better.

Gold color, with a respectable frothy head. Fresh, hoppy aroma. Some grapefruit-eske tangyness in the flavor. Wasnít sure what to expect since it was in a section of the LCBO seperated from what are typically the better brews, but itís really not at all bad.
