COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

How strange to smell primarily hops from a Capital brew. Don’t get muchmore then hops ,more like a light IPA rather then APA, The lightness and dryness of the taste does surprise, seems like American hops with German grain malt backing, only the hopping puts this above a macro,tastes like aGerman attempt at an APA, the hops and dryness do make this very thirstquenching, this would be an excellent first brew after a bike ride or jog

(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a large white head. Crisp hoppy aroma. Taste is quite a bit more malty, with biscuit and sweet caramel notes in there as well. Nice crisp floral hop finish, with a medium mouthfeel. Quite good.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
This is listed as a summer brew, however It was not available in the store (in Madison, where it is brewed) until almost December. Hoppy and delightful beer, with a bit too bitter of an aftertaste. Overall good, but not a beer I would drink multiple of in a row.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Nice introduction to hops for a macro drinker. Easy drinking session ale, the firm cascadeyness scrubs away any sense of maltiness pretty quickly though.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a clear golden color with thin, white, fizzy head. Aroma is like floral hops and subtle malt backbone. Taste is floral hops, light biscuit and slight citrus. Easy drinking and well carbonated. This would be an excellent lawnmower beer.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a clean light golden color. Aroma is slightly floral hops but not too complex or strong. Taste is carbonated with decent bitterness up front and finishes slightly malty, with minor citrus and caramel notes. Very drinkable and refreshing brew from the brewery next door.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle from Buckybeer. Thie shit is good. Pretty gold color with nice carbonation. Light malty and strong flowery hop taste and aroma. Citrus dry bitter finish. Smooth and drinkable.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Gold color. Smell of hops, malt, light pine and citrus, flowers and some caramel. Taste of caramel, minor citrus, hops, flowers, honey, pine and a little pine. Decent.

cblado (234) - Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a light, slightly amber gold color. Thick citrus aroma gives a hint of the definite grapefruit flavors. Spicy, not a particularly strong hops flavor. Slightly bitter, less than other American Pale Ales. A bit oily on the palate. All in all a delicious beer that I would come back to.

shigadeyo (2980) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2007
12/01/2007: U.S. Pale Ale has a "pretty" (according to my wife) golden color. It is extremely clear and has a moderate level of carbonation and a fluffy off-white head. Sweet honey malt and some floral hops blossom out of the aroma. The flavor is adequately hoppy for an American Pale Ale. There are lots hop flavors including floral, pine, and hints of grassy and spicy hops (noble-like) along with some honey and pale malt notes throughout. The body of this beer is medium and it is smooth and pretty soft and mellow on the palate. Overall this is a solid American Pale Ale. It is quite flavorful and refreshing without being too heavy, hoppy, or bitter.

12 fl. oz. bottle from buckybeer. Thanks Mark! Rating #18 for this beer...
