COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pigskin Pale Ale is light in color yet high in malt and hop character. Crisp and clean like a well-executed touchdown pass, Pigskin Pale Ale finishes off with an end zone celebration of zesty, floral hops that says 6 points, American Style.

Poured from the bomber. Aroma is of earthy and dank hops. Colour is straw but hazy. Flavor reflects the earthy hops, but is malt balanced like a Sierra Nevada. Palate is equally balanced, not too dry, etc. Very good pale ale.

A nice light hop aroma. This is fairly bitter for just an APA. Interestingly though, it seems more bitter up front than in the middle, but a strong bitterness in the finish. I think, at least for today, I like the amber better.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from Liquid Solutions in Portland, OR. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a thick off-white head that dissipates to a thin creamy head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus zest, some light caramel malt, a touch of toffee and some white pine. Taste is quite dry bitter, medium bodied, with flavors of light caramel malt, pine, grapefruit and some vegetable. Finish is dry bitter with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. One of the more heavy bitter APA that would challenge an IPA character beer.

Courtesy of Skyview. Copper color with a large head. Citrusy aroma. Very leafy hop taste, like I just buried my face into a handful of fresh hops. Bitter, acidic taste. A little caramel malt body.

22 ounce bottle bought at the Boise Co-op. Pours a clear amber color with a thick pillowy white head. The aroma is citrus hops, light grassy elements. The flavor is smooth a nice; citrus hops, caramel, light fruit, very clean and super quaffable. This is quality. Nothing attacks you, but it stands out for its clean and balanced flavors. Does Beer Valley make anything but quality?

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - AUG 4, 2012
Pours slightly cloudy amber with a big off-white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma is flowery and fruity hops and some caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma quite well

StompingSpuds (1) - Weiser, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2007 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This particular bottle was flat and cloudy. This ultimately had a rather negative impact on the Aroma, Appearance, Flavor and the overall. An additional concern was that there was an inordinate amount of sediment in the bottle that rendered the final 3 or four ounces undrinkable.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
fogged golden orange hue with a huge rocky/frothy white head, sticky fresh hop nose, excellent hop body, delightful citrus notes and a mild green hop tinge to the finish. This is the 1st beer iíve had from the beer valley and I have to say that Iím impressed. Solid pale ale, reads like a slighted IPA, as any hardy pale should... and if you don;t believe me, drink one!

Bottle (conditioned!) Impressive citrus and floral aromas. Light amber color with a frothy white head. Medium body with creamy/chewy carbonation. The flavor is hop above pale malt, lightly roasted. The finish is nicely balanced and the bitter tends to build. Itís just an excellent brew.
