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.

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.

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

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.

This is a nice well rounded beer. Refreshing, complex, and generally easy to drink.

jgb9348 (4655) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Hazy orange-tinted golden colour with a super-dense co2 injected white head. Aroma of super cascades-just like Hop Ottin'! Light to Medium-bodied; Sharp bloody taste of metal with a nice hoppy flavour with a missing malt background. Aftertaste clean-some citrus and hops show though, not much through! Overall, a decent APA, lacking comparing to the pleasant aroma though! I sampled this twelve ounce purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, D.C. on 29-December-2003.

Hazy yellow pour with a thick white head. Not what I expected from your typical American Pale Ale. Some hops in the aroma and in the taste. The flavor was kind of watered down and somewhat light. Not that great of a Pale Ale. Could be thicker in my opinion.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Pours a murky golden honey color with a small white head. Nose is light sweet apricot. Flavor starts kinda sweet followed by a citric hop bite and a somewhat dry bitter aftertaste. Light on the palate, but a tasty pale ale.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Nice golden color,small head that dissipated quickly.The aroma was hoppy and malty with a slight citrus side to it.The taste was malty and citrusy with a nice hop taste coming on at the middle and the end.The finish is hoppy and slightly bitter with a nice citrus after taste .Not as bad as i was thinking this brew might be.Very pleasant and highly drinkable brew with a slight lawnmower like feeling.Well worth finding for a taste test.
