Smooth, hoppy, citrus thing going on. Probably good on a hot day but it's cold in Ohio tonight.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Gold in color. Rich white head. Very hoppy nose with a bitter boiling hop flavor. I get a fruity citrus flavor as well.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Clear honey color with a huge head. Hops and malt blend together to produce a very floral, amost perfume-like, aroma. Taste starts malty with a mild hop bite. Finish is lightly carbonated and dry. A fine drinking beer that makes me wish I was sitting in the sun by a mountain stream.

zach8270 (3363) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head and lots of carbonation. Strong hoppy aroma with a slightly spicy malt undertone. Strong hoppy taste with a very subdued citrus followup and a smooth bitter finish.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours light amber with not so long-lasting white head; left white lace. No matter how long the beer sat, the bubbles kept rising, which was nice since it didn't go flat. Went down smooth and left a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall, not an amazing pale ale, but definitely drinkable and not at all unpleasant.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2004
partially hazed, agressively carbonated golden body with a soft dense white head. pale malts underlie a prevalent hop character. Minty, fruity and spicy: must be Mt Hoods and/or Cascades. initially sweet and malty giving way to a citrucy hop character terminating in a harmonious blending of toasty caramel and pale malts with resinous dry, bitter hoppiness. not bad, an easy drinking APA. some breadiness and oily bitterness later on.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Like a junior IPA. A decent amount of hops for an APA. Light scent of pine. Light in color and smooth in the mouth. A little bit of wheat and bread in the flavor.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2004
almost clear yellow color with a solid white head, nothing like the pic here though. Sweet, citrus aroma with small hops. Bitter as all hell, but not in a good way, in a nasty way. Blah

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Memories of driving to the valley - and being as drunk as I am now. How I wished the kitchen was open, but just a plat of nothing - along with a tour of the place. Oh, and the beer was good.
