BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
This one pours a decent head and has a light amber color to it. The flavor is slightly hoppy, but not as strong as most pale ales.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours a nice amber color, good head and lacing. Flowery, citrus aroma, but not the grapefruit. Tastes hoppy, with a slight malt middle and a bitter end. Although it has been eclipsed by some other excellent APA's recently, this is the grandaddy of them all and is still a quite quaffable example of the style.

This ale looks like apple juice. Aromas of fruit, grass, and hops. Taste is all hops, with a sweet malt finish. Light. Refreshing.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Medium peach in color, with a large white head that slowly recedes to leave small amounts of lacing. Aroma is mainly dominated with cascade hops (pine needle & some citrus) with some bready maltiness and a bit of yeatiness hanging out. Taste is of piney hops, some sweet citrus, and hints of breadiness. Body is medium, flavor is very well balanced, and immensley drinkable.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2003
A nice copper color., pours with a solid cream colored head. A definite citrusy aroma wafts from the glass to my nose. There is a good amount of body to this beer, and it goes along well with a nice American hop (Cascade) character, in both the aroma and flavor departments. This beer finishes with a nice pleasing bitterness that hits ones tongue. At its best this beer is overflowing with American hop character, a wonderful hop-citrus character. Backed by a solid amount of malt backbone that helps this pioneering beer stand tall. Unfortunately this beer does not travel well. Anywhere I have had this beer a significant distance from the brewery, it is merely a solid good above average beer. When it is fresh though it is world class. So all of you Liberty naysayers get thee to the brewery to really experience this beer.

nice beer that hides its alcohol content with a clean palate and a great balance of malt and hops.

I bought a 6 of this when trying out a 6 of Old Foghorn. Out of all the stuff I've had lately, this is the most well balanced beer (I guess I like hops) and a good representative of the APA style.

Didn't this used to be classified as an IPA? Anyway, balanced aroma of hops and malts - similar to Anchor Steam. A very crisp, full hop-dominated flavor. A truly remarkable APA.

Kind of a citrus taste ... really smooth drink ... pale dark beer ...
