COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic American Pale Ale has a beautiful light copper color and a thirst quenching hoppiness thanks to our Pacific Northwest grown Simcoe and Willamette hops.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Light but drinkable. Not at all what one expects when they order an APA. I honestly thought there would be more hop and more malt ... well, I guess I thought there would be more taste.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 29, 2009
On tap @ Bullfrog. Hazy light amber with a whitish head and some lacing. Mellow citrus aroma with some caramel malt and a dry hop scent. Medium to light body with mellow carbonation and a slightly water mouth feel.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Draft at Bullfrog. Poured medium gold with white head. Nose was pale malt and hopcitrus. Tasted fairly rich and smooth, with pale malt, resiny hops, and some late floral and tropical fruit flavor hints.

auerbrau (3164) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 4, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Gummy, juicy hop fragrant aroma. Citrus and pine heavy. Pours a middle orange-golden, lightly hazed, with a just past white head, lacing. Flavor was a bit muddled and malt messy, but then opened up slowly into some rich, raw, unbridled hop flavors. I want a little more bitterness for balance, as the hop flavor doesn’t feel counter-weighted. Finishes a little dirty and a bit thin. Nothing crazy.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Draft @ Bullfrog. Pours a clear, slightly dulled golden-orange color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Very light, slightly bland aroma, showing minimal hops, some sugar, and cardboard-y malts; light and generally inoffensive. Medium mouthfeel: stronger show of hoppy bitterness in the mouth: citrus and soft earthy / floral hops upfront, solid levels of bitterness, and fairly drinkable and pleasant overall; much better than the nose; solid pale ale after the initial impression. Medium finish: toasty malts, mineral and citrus bitterness, and sugar.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours golden honey color with thin white head. The aroma is herbal hops with slight tangerine and white bread. The flavor is herbal with very mild citric bitterness. a bit of toast comes out toward the finish. Thinner-bodied than I would like.

A good pale ale. Hops are everywhere. This beer was crisp with a dry finish. A very good pale ale. A winner from Bullfrog

Sammy (8520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Some new tweaking of a pale, Light yellow with lace. Cheese aroma. Above carbonated. Some hops, so some relation to a pale.
