SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2008
On tap: This was a nice enough Pale that had some dry/bitterness in the finish. Okay but I preferred others in the flight and wouldn’t be ordering this one again.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pine, floral, earthiness. Flavor of caramel malt and hops (grass, floral, pine) with a bitter finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Tap at Fenway. Pours a light golden with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is light citrus hops with lots of toasted malts, and lightly herbal and earthy hops as it warms. Crisp and relatively clean compared to some other brews from them, cereal crackery malts, ligth hop bitternes.

Lubiere (10846) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009
An orange amber ale with a thin white head. Light c-hops in aroma with notes of grapefruits. In mouth, a nicely balanced malt, floral hops, with light grapefruit astringence. Light to medium bodied. Honest APA. On tap at Fenway brewpub, Oct. 12 2008.

JPDIPSO (4958) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Draft at Logan, Pier C. Amber ot copper in color. Citric aromas dominate, yet some light grains and malt do seem to creep through at times. Toasted to nutty malt is quickly replaced with citric hops. An APA, what can I say. Malt and hops with enough sweetness and backbone to take this beyond an amber.

nimbleprop (5567) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2009
Got a chance to sip this side by side with the Back Bay IPA at the Fenway location. Doesn’t come close to the Back Bay. Pours a copper, amber with a very faint, wispy white head. Aroma is mild, grapefruits and lemons and crackers. Flavor is similar. Dry finish.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - APR 5, 2009
Ehh, nothing great, boring. Barely any nose, hoppiness and some minor fruits. Dry bitter taste with no redeeming qualities.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 Draft at the Fenway location - sampled 10/5/08 - Poured a light amber in color with a small whitish head that did not stick around. Aroma was quite malty and sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor was also, initially, mildly malty sweet with a medium hop bitterness. No that distinguished, but an easy drinking beer.

rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Clear dark oragne, good head retention. Aroma of citrus hops, dry hoppy bitter finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2359) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2008
tangy and hoppy from the keg at salem beer works. clean seperation from good refreshing and appropriate pale ale flavors and body. nice biscuity and slightly sweet it has perhaps a caramel flavor paired well in mouthfeel which is a touch silky and yet not harsh at all. this is a brew that i can stew over.
