I have had this back in day at holy cow. Great beer. Even seen it a pizza port in CA. Used to stay at the now debunk Sahara just to be by the cow. Always drank this great brew. Golden color clear great balanced use of hops. Was always a great go to when it was open.

Little aroma, standard look. A pale ale in every way. It’s the right amount of hops but does it without being very heavy. One I could drink quite frequently.

clear light amber, thin head, touch of lace, big sweet grapefruit aroma, huge citrus hop flavor with enough carmel malt sweetness to back it up, short bitter finish to round it out, an all time favorite

20 oct 07, draft at BD Cafe & Casino, LV. Clear, light amber colored. Sweet malt flavors and heavenly hop florals. Flavor is of a nice malt body backed up by a big hop bitterness. I’ve had IPAs that were not as bitter as this APA. Very Good.

beerlist (23) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Nice hoppy aroma. Light to medium orange in color, decent head. The hop flavor predominates, but it has enough maltiness to make it pretty balanced. A good American Pale Ale.
