HOPS: Columbus, Nugget, Cascade

Note: Formerly Poleeko Gold Pale Ale.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Hazy, honey color, with a slightly off-white head. Nice froth left on the sides of the glass after each sip (or gulp). Light citrus aroma and overall flavor, but there is a very noticeable, and pleasant, bitterness that develops in the end. Carbonation is good. Highly drinkable/refreshing. I like this one, and now I’m eager to try others from this brewer.

Not a fan. Very bitter for a pale ale. No flavor at all. It’s intial aroma was nice and it was just an empty promise. Won’t buy this one again.

seeknay36 (110) - DC, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. A drinkable IPA. Yellow color with a medium head. Not much of an aroma, bit of floral. The taste is a bit hoppy, with a hint of fruit.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Passable Pale Ale. Pours a slight bit "yellower’ than it’s IPA counterpart. Fizzy and relatively quickly fading head. General fruity and flowery scent. Tastes of apples and grapes with a slight hop aftertaste. Generally a pleasant malt balance, but not perfect. (Bottle Pour 11/30/2006)

Cloudy yellow body. White lasting head, good lacing. Aromas - floral, roses, honey, hint of malt. Creamy body, balanced. A little sourness in the finish.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2006
This is a nice looking beer and is Pennzoil colored. There is a small white foam and plenty of carbonation. Aroma is hoppy featuring tart fruit and some florals. There is a nice little bite to the flavor as the hops dominate. A slow forming aftertaste can be found and it is slightly bitter. The fruit is strongly grapefruit. I kept wondering when the malt would show up and it finally made an appearance when the glass was almost empty. It adds a caramel aspect to the beer. Throughout the beer was dry and crisp.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Pretty cloudy orange-yellow and not much aroma. The taste is just slightly bitter and hoppy. A little thin in the middle. A nice dry finish. Some maltiness at the end that I don’t like.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Pours a clear golden color with a decent white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma that is mostly citrus. Obvious west coast style APA with a distinct citrus flavor that is pleasantly bitter without being extreme. A very nice example of the style.
