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.

12oz bottle. Found this to be a somewhat weak and lacking in character pale ale though it did go down easy making for an OK session beer. I think I may have tried this on draft awhile back at their Fenway brewpub and liked it better so the blandness may have something to do with the bottling in some way.

Amber coloured body with white head. Some notes of butterscotch with good amount of hoppiness. Good beer to have before heading back home.

On tap at the Canal Street location. Clear dark amber colour. Lasting off-white head. A clean and refreshing APA with restrained hop presence. Quite dry with a fairly bitter finish. More malty than the average APA. Nice drinking.

On tap at fenway location. Pour is dark orange, almost auburn color. A little bit of nut and caramel character to this. Soapy hop flavor and finish.

Very disappointing Amber color with no head. Slight aroma of hops. Weak flavor with toasted malts and some hop bitterness at the close. Seemed watered down.
