Average micro APA. I had this with some really spicey chili, so the hops were good to have in it. The appearance was pathetic, no head, no leacing, almost like water. Musky hop aroma though, not floral or herbal.

Not bad. Pours a light gold color, not much aroma. Not my favorite style of beer, but drinkable none the less.

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.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2004
clear golden color, white bubbly head, aroma is citrusy, hoppy, and malty, fruity and toasty; flavor is bitter, with a decent hop bite, citrus, and some light maltiness, smooth but not a lot in terms of texture, lightly dry and acidic, disappointing

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 (22-ounce bottle, $3) Nothing all that special here; A lighter flavored pale ale with a mild malt flavor that is somewhat dominated by a moderate bitterness from the fresh tasting hops; This really needs a more robust maltiness; It's also mildly sour, but like grapefruit, so it's not a bad sour; The fairly dry palate is medium bodied but perhaps just a tad thin; The nose is moderately hoppy but there's little else going on; Light golden in color and somewhat cloudy; The head is off-white in color, has solid retention, and leaves a fair amount of patchy lacing

Golden yellow in color, as they say. But nothing out of the ordinary as far as crisp-clean light or dryness. I tasted the honey, and felt it was ok.

Bottle. Small white head, pale orange color with slight haze. A tinge of citrus and hops in aroma with a small malt smell. Flavor is moderately hoppy up front and has a slightly astringent finish.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Pours gold with nice white head. Flavor is piney, grapefruity hops. Slightly watery, finished very dry. Not my thing.

Pours clear golden color with a large frothy head. Aroma is citric, grassy and hoppy, some herbal notes also.

Nothing particularly special here. That is nothing particularly bad and nothing particularly good, other than the fluffy white head that stayed around for quite some time. A little more than lightly hopped.
