Nice amber color with floaties, decent head and lacing. odd flowery/hoppy aroma. Taste flowery, some malt, and a slightly watery sweet finish. Overall a decent APA. A good session ale.

Bad hoppy smell but the taste is fairly mild. Nice malts covering up what I expected to be an over-hopped beer.

Aroma is bright, citrus, hops. Appearance is quite nice light, cloudy brown with big off white head that is fully retained. Tons of lacing are present. Flavor, for me, was a bit of a let down from the promise of the aroma. I was expecting a large hop assault, instead there is a bit of of hops on the front end that is balanced out by some nice malt flavors. Excellent pale ale, just looking for a bit more hops.

Nice malt and hop balance, a taste of carmel and a wonderful cleansing of the tounge, a good sesson beer. I wish I had more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unfiltered copper hue with a very nice creamy off-white head and excellent lace. Aroma hints of pine, grapefruit, roasted malt and a touch of sweet spice. The taste is bitter and piney at the forefront with a moderate level of malt undertone. Slighty chalky finish and feel. Thin-bodied and sharp mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing brew for those who like hoppy APA's.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Quite the unfiltered appearance. Hazy oarnge,with a pretty,well-formed,foam. Specks throughout. Huge citrus/pine hop aroma. Minimal malt in aroma,little toast and pale malt. Watery texture,and little body,but good carbonation. Fairly empty flavors in the mouth,except the hops. Some malt in the finish(caramel,bread) with lingering citrus. Easy to drink,but nothing to write home about.

Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Clear dark amber color with a somewhat foamy medium white head. Nice lacing. Fair amount of hops in the aroma. Medium body and kind of earthy, with a nice blend of citrus and other fruit, hops and a hint of caramel. A little bit of malt makes its way through in the finish but it retains the hoppy aspect throughout. Pretty good.

Not a bad American pale ale. Light hoppy and malt flavor. Finishes clean and dry.
