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.

thick malty/hoppy body and taste. crisp finish with nice hop that stays just long enough. A very sessionable pale ale (although a 22oz’er session!)

Very hoppy with substantial maltiness (is that root beer? -- elements from the biscuit malt?). Really a very good APA, stronger, fresher, more bold than many and it ain't just the high hop level. Recommended. Thanks to the friend of Gill, Burnham and colleagues.

Malty & green. Aroma is very candi sugar, subdued green hops. Lots of hop bitterness but not a whole lot of flower flavor. Hops do balance the malt well.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Bomber purchased at Rivers Bend in Ohio. Pours deep amber orange with a thick pillowy white head. Citrus hop aroma. Medium light mouthfeel and fizzy texture. Llight biscuity malt flavor, countered by spicy hops. I also pick up distracting amounts of diacetyl on the finish, which is bitter and soapy. I did not care for this, nor the Hippie IPA. Perhaps I am getting some bad or poorly handled bottles?

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.

ross (2073) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle from Sean, thanks. Dark brown color, thick yellow head. Smell is malts and some hops, and a thick yeasty smell. Taste is pretty sweet, but very refreshing. A nice session beer, pretty redeeming after trying the hippie IPA. not too bad.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle: Copper colored pour, with a loose foamy off white head. Aroma is citrusy, with some nice malts in the background. Flavor, a good bit of citrus up front that gives way to carmelly finish. Some moderate bitterness on the finish as well. This is pretty good pale ale. Good session beer for sure.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Lots of hops but plenty of malt to back it up. Fragrant and well balanced. Good beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Clear and bright gold in color with no head. Aroma is sweet honey, grapefruit and apricots, along with hints at a dew on a spring morning’s grass. Grapefruit and papaya lead the flavor pattern in a very smooth and easy going manner. I’d like a bolder hop presence, but it is an APA and the requisite ration of hops to malts seem to be in order. Tiny bit chewy with the shortest of hop stops. Carbonation is lacking. Finishes like an iced down summer cooler. Nevertheless, it’s still a decent beer.

I don’t often find much enjoyment in pale ales but this was an exception. Clear copper with a creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, biscuits. Medium body and smooth feel. Nice blend of sweetness and bitterness in the flavor. A very good beer, especially for a pale ale.
