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.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle purchased at Dilly Deli in Mariemont, OH. Pours a large off-white fizzy head that was mostly lasting, fair quantity of lacing, floaties, hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Caramel, hoppy, grapefrut, and pine nose. Flavor was grapefruit, pine, hoppy, caramel, bitter hops. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. All-in-all a nice brew for this style.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Pours dark orange / brown with a frothy thick beige head that gives good lacing. Aroma is woody and piney hops with some citrusy sweetness. Some light musty malt is in the background. Medium body with moderately sharp carbonation. Taste starts with musty caramel malt with a little sharpness from the hops. The finish has more spice, but the mustiness still lingers. There is some traces of pine in there as well. Overall a good pale ale.

jsquire (3400) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Copper color with a big-bubbled off-white head. Crisp, fresh hop nose. Flavor of pinapple, grapefruit and orangr rind. The orange sweetness grew as the beer warmed. I wanted more body. Hop finish is almost too harsh. Decent APA.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours to a nice coppery/orange colored body with a nice frothy off-white head. The aroma is fruity and citrusy. Grapefruit and pine, little bit of pineapple. The flavor is quite malty. Dry grassy biscuits, light sweet honey. The palate is nicely bitter. Medium body with a nice texture.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 29, 2006
22oz bomber. thanks to vyvvy for picking this up on his trip out east. clear orange with a small off-white soapy head. nose is lighty piney with some diacytl unfortunately. flavors are grapefrupt, resinous hops, and diacytl. the diacytl isnt huge in this beer but just enough to bring down the overall enjoyment here. body is somewhat fizzy and over-cabonated. finish shows the diacytl and piney hops. i would like a diacytl less sample next time

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2005
22 oz. Amber with fluffy, thick off white head. Grassy, hoppy aroma with a sweet orange twang. Sweet malts then light bitter hops. A relly nice beer I could only imagine would be fantastic on cask. Nice and hoppy.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Thanks to OhioDad for this one! Pours a hazy dark amber with a generous pff-white head. Light citrus aroma. The flavor is well balanced, with both sweet malts and bittering hops represented equally. A gentle, yet firm drying bitterness describes the finish. I could drink a session with this one.

aracauna (3050) - 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.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
a dark orangish color w/ a large fluffy off white head and ok lacing some haziness to the pour. Nice well hopped aroma pine and grapefruit and a hint of grahm crackers & carmel. Well carbonated lightly oily well coated palate w/ a smooth finish. Flavor is definatelly a piney bitter a very dry resony finish w/ a fair amount of malt in there. Well done but overdone on the pine notes to me.

22oz bottle pours a dark amber/brown witha nice fluffy offwhite head that stays very well and laces the sides of the shaker on the way down. Nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit and some pine and floral hops. Beautifully hoppy for an APA. Flavor is also quite hoppy with notes of grapefruit, apricot, pine, and a good backing of caramel and biscuit malts. Nice bitter floral finish. Palate is quite smooth and creamy and easy drinking.. This is an amazing APA... Delicious..
