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.

Pretty good, the only minor flaw was that it was slightly doggy smelling at times. Floral, grapefruit peel, tangy, medium bittering, lightly sweet. Medium mouth. Great label. Thanks to Lucky Dog for driving this back.

Not that great. I almost think I got a bad bottle. It’s bitter and has a kind of sour aftertaste. I’ll drink it again if someone buys it for me, but that it.

On tap at Boston beer works, Logan airport, Boston, Mass whilst waiting for my 747 back to Blighty last October. An amber coloured pour with a reasonable off white head. Aroma of citrus fruit/hops. Tastes of citrus fruit, malty, hoppy, bitter, spice. OK for an airport beer.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Coming back from Martha’s Vineyrad we stopped in at the Boston Beer Works at Logan airport. This APA was a very clear copper to amber. The head was small and disappeared. The hops bitterness was evident but only some citrus like lemon. Smooth and bitter at the finish with some bitter cherry. Just an average APA nothing special. On our trip in October 2011 we enjoyed the APA again. We raised the marks slightly.

On tap at Fenway brew pub. Amber colored with a small biege head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Tastes of sweet malt with some hop bitterness. Decent enough.

the aroma is both inviting and misleading. The taste is pale ale at first but then a bit of acidic aftermath that leaves me questioing the brew. bottle says 5.8%, which it mostly tastes like. This is a different pale ale that is not too sure of itself. but worth trying.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing as it recedes to coat surface. Resin and grapefruit aromas. Crisp and fruity upfront turning slightly astringent in the lasting bitter resin finish.

Clear amber color. Moderate head that settles to a thin layer of fine bubbles. Leaves some slippery, spotty lace. Smells like a well-balanced pilsner; lots of caramel and a touch of hop bitterness. Far more bitter than the smell would indicate--it dominates the buttery dry malt flavor. The aftertaste is bitter without any of the subtleties of the finer hop varieties. For the style, this has a rich body with an expected level of carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant APA.
