A top ten. There are very few beers that are this good for this long. I really love this beer, and it is worth whatever I have to pay to get it. Wonderful hop bite, this is a great beer.

Aroma screams HOPS!!! Big rocky head that must be 50% hop oil to taste soooo good. Great balance between hops and malt and goes down smoothly. Hereís my dilemna: This is my favorite beer in its style so do I give it the highest rating possible? What if it defines the style to me? Well, Iím leaving a little room for that elusive beer that might, and I repeat might, be better. Cheers!

This is the finest pale ale in the world (yes fellow quaffers, Iíve sampled many a pale ale, including Duvel and many, many others). Quality ingredients and bottle conditioning allow the incredible delicate flavor to escape unscathed in the trip out east. Pours with a huge head Ė fun to watch it settle into a rocky moonscape. Usually provides slight flowery hop notes with gentle bitterness; then some licorice, then the malt rumbles through. Lingering unique aftertaste is very pleasant and refreshing. Dead on consistency over the years; much more than can be said about other American pale ales, including Sierra Nevada and Hop Devil. BTW, the date of bottling code is terrific and should be emulated by every serious brewer -- would a winery sell undated Chardonnay?

I like this ale even more than their Steam beer. Dry finish. Frothy head and good hoppy taste.

Noticing the handsome pint, my wife, who sticks strictly to wine, said, "That looks like a great beer." She is right, this is a classic ale. If I had to pick just one APA to have in the fridge forever, this would be it.

Appearance: Golden honey color, slightly hazy. Nice fine bubbles. Head looks rocky, leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma: Citrus hops, earthly, sweet malts. Taste & Mouthfeel: Citrus hops up front, mild earthly, along with biscuity malts. Semi sweet orange blossoms in the mid-palate, with touch of honey. Very refreshing, body is light to medium. Carbonation feels great. Finish & Aftertaste: Crisp finish with slight herbal bite aftertaste. Overall Impressions: Outstanding American Pale Ale!!

The overall taste is exceptionally good with a little but highly delightful jaunt to caramel-land. I think itís a little bit too bitter though.
