COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I never met a Sasquatch I didn't like. This delicious beer starts with a distinct citrus aroma followed by a complex flavor from European Munich and Biscuit specialty malts. Finally, it ends with the trademark Buckeye finish- hops, hops, and more hops. The Columbus variety is used to balance the brew, and later Sasquatch and I personally dry-hop it with Cascade.

Another average IPA, I cannot really say much about this brew ! Neutral, average.

Bottled: Pour resulted in a large creamy white head of foam that fell after 5 minutes to a thin long lasting layer. Beautifully clear med-dark gold color with burnished highlights. An enticing citrusy-floral hop nose took center stage while the malt aroma pretty much played a bit part. Flavor started with a fine balance of hop bitterness/sweet malt characters and lasted through to the finish. Slightly vegetal hop flavor emerged mid-palate and transformed into a pleasant grapefruit character in the aftertaste. A hint of yeasty-breadiness was evident from mid-palate to aftertaste. Medium bodied with a nicely supple texture enhanced by a gentle carbonation. A very refreshing, flavorful APA; one that I could drink with a good pizza and good company all summer day long. I would have liked a more present malt aroma though but the finely balanced bitter/sweet characters that made this brew quite easy drinking compensated nicely. Thanks Drew!

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 20, 2004
aroma is citrusy, hoppy and has a desticnt hint of oranges. Taste is a bit hoppier then I would have thought, with a certain fruity and caramel flavour. Nice smooth finish, chunks of sediment in the glass .....

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2004
I’m getting more of a spruce sap-type aroma more than a citrus hop aroma, but whatever. This is quite hoppy for an APA in aroma and flavor. In fact, it verges on being an IPA instead of an APA. The body is fairly light, despite a nice caramel and wood maltiness.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2004
Copper/amber in colour. Aroma of cirtus, flowers, sugar, cream, oranges and grapefruit. Flavour had some caramel malt, slight sweetness, hoppy, citrus (oranges and mild grapefruit). Medium body. Finishes with a hoppy bitterness, lingering but dry.

Huge thanks to kujo9 for throwing thisn one into our trade. Beautiful copper brown amber colour. Big frothy white head that diminishes to a thin lasting film. Some hops and citrus go along with the sweet malts on the nose. Refreshing and smooth balance of sweet and bitter - very drinkable, prehaps as a session beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Clear copper with a thick cream-colored head. Aroma has a fresh hoppy and caramel malt aroma. Body has a nice sweetness and goes down smooth with a hoppy finish. A good APA, thanks Drew!

uvajed (171) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Fabulous red-amber color with a smallish, frothy head. Nice nutty flavor with a hoppy, earthy finish. Not the hop extravaganza that I expected after the reading previous reviews, but quite tasty. Would go well with a juicey cheeseburger, though I think I could drink this any time. Definitely worth a try or three.

hershiser2 (1227) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Paid $2.79 for a bomber. Nice deep amber with a huge head. A bit IPAish in the nose. Sweet citrus, slightly hoppy. Bittersweet, tinge of an IPA, but far from it. Slightly citrusy, but lacking a lot of hop. Nice, but not overwhelming. Would make a great session brew. But not hearty enough (or original enough) to make me buy it again, other than to drink all night.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 Looks nice in the glass, aroma is hoppy citrus. Flavor is slightly out of balance on the hops side, some citrus tones come through. Overall a decent APA.
