COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quintessential American pale ale, brewed with a blend of American hops. This copper colored ale is well balanced and pleasantly bitter with a spicy-citrus hop aroma, produced by a blend of Cluster and Cascade hops.

BreWedge (296) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
On tap @ Beer Works Boston. Pours clear amber with a small white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is a gentle citrus hop with mildly sweet malts. Taste is coppery, roasty malt up front with (cascade?) hops on back end. Medium finish on the periphery of the tongue. Easy drinking nice beer.

Toasty and not that sweet, actually a quaffable pale ale. Herbally grassy flavor, decent stuff

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2012
12oz bottle from Crossroads Beer & Wine, Burlington, MA. Stated ABV is 5.8%. Pours amber with a thin white head; some grassy German-style hops on the aroma; sweet malty flavour; with a light zing from some dusty hops to finish. Pleasant enought to drink, but not what Id expect from an APA.

Tried the Irish stout. Good head retention, nice stout but not a dry stout. Just a bit sweet to be a dry stout. Id brew it though.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
(draught - Logan) light amber/gold with small white head. Malt/hops aroma. Balanced malt/hop flavor. Very drinkable pale ale if not exciting. More English style than American (except for choice of hops)

kidmartinek (3513) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Copper. Clear. Weak head. English malt and hops in the aroma. Unfortunate... oh, these English beers.

LilBeerDoctor (3414) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Cask at the Fenway location. Pours a cloudy orange with a sliver of white head. Aroma of grassy,citrusy hops. Flavor is also very hop forward with hop resins and caramel malt. Actually quite a tasty hoppy cask ale. Id recommend it! 8/4/7/4/14 (3.7/5)

brokensail (10608) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2011
A: This one pours amber in color with a white head. S: Smells rather bland. Seems to be mostly bready malt with a light floral and grass hop note. Maybe some toasted malt and toffee. T: A very grassy hop flavor. Light bitterness with some yeast and bready malts. Also sort of bland. A very faint fruit note in there somewhere, maybe well call it citrus peel. M: Light bodied with medium carbonation. O: Rather lackluster and unenjoyable pale ale. Id skip this one.
