COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop growers and researchers seem to be in a constant search to develop the next “perfect” hop. Every year they develop new varieties. Glacier hops, developed a few years ago, is one of the better of the new hops. This beer is brewed exclusively with Glacier which allows the crisp bitterness and flowery flavors of the hop to be on center stage of the flavor profile of this beer. O.G. 1055 I.B.U. 36

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Pours clear yellow-gold with a fizzy white head. Floral and some citrus aroma. Sweet fruity taste that is not balanced by hops. Thin body, tastes like cough syrup and corn.

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 26, 2009
Light and a bit citrusy. Malt profile that is a tad sweet. Citrus notes. Hops are underwhelming. May be a good session beer, but it’s not much of a Pale Ale. I’ll pass on this next time.

Draft at Hillsboro village location. Clear pale gold pour with ring of white head. Light floral hop aroma is well balanced out with the mild malt flavor profile. Medium body with medium carbonation.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2007
On Cask. The aroma was earthy and woodsy with a light caramel character and a floral and fruity nature. The beer arrived still cascading from the hand pull but ultimately was crystal clear golden amber with an off-white super frothy head which coated the glass with Belgian lace from the top to the bottom (a beautiful pour). The flavor was nutty with a strong caramel, citrus and woodsy character. The bittering was nice with a good balance to the malt presence. The finish was even heading toward dry. The body was medium with a low level of carbonation and a huge creamy texture on the palate. A very nice APA in need of an aroma boost. Pint at Boscos Nashville.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - AUG 11, 2007
On draft at the Memphis locale. Billed as a showcase for Glacier hops. Burnished gold body with the biggest head I’ve ever had on a beer at Boscos. Floral, almost minty aroma with some citrus, too. Taste is well-balanced with a good clean bitterness and only a slight resiny citrus American hop flavor. Nice.

On hand pump at the brewpub in Nashville. Cloudy pale yellowish orange color. Nice hoppiness. Oddly enough I got not onlyt the floral notes, but the citrus character was on the orange side. A nice enough APA, interesting, but not special.

Rating may be a bit low because this beer wasn’t bad. I may have rated this beer comparing with my beloved Bombay IPA which it doesn’t compare. An unfair rating is my belief due to this fact. Guess I’ll have to have another.
