COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

madvike (2847) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery - Deep amber pour with a big white foamy head. Flowery and lightly tropical fruity hops on the nose, with light, caramel malt in the background. Tastes sweet and fruity, with light lemon and a bit of grassy hops on the finish. A bit flat, however. Medium-bodied and slick in the mouth. Smelled good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

DrnkMcDermott (2835) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Rather clear, light gold pour, slight head. Smell has a bit of hoppiness, not much. Makes me wary that this is going for the megabrew market. However, the taste does redeem it. Peppery hop up front, almost German in character, with some citrus to the back. Goes down nice and fizzy, like a bar keg draft. Actually tastes nice cold, too. Sharper hops in the finish.

From notes. 12oz can from Old Chicago poured into a shaker. Pours a crystal clear, light orange color. Not much head but what is there is bright white. Aroma is all hops. Spruce and resin. Taste is medium bitter. It sort of tastes the way pine needles smell. Medium bodied with a distinctly oily texture. Overall, this one is pretty good. I would buy it again if I ever found it locally.

iowaherkeye (2696) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2007
12oz bottle, no date. Clear honey golden with a small white head, fading to a ring and a thin film rather quickly. Aroma of Cascades (sweaty and citrusy with a bit of pine), and a fair amount of sweet caramel malts. Flavor makes me happier with some brighter citrus notes and soft pine bitterness, sweetened up with some grass and caramel. Light body with light to moderate carbonation. A good APA to style. I need to enter my notes from the brewery, as I remember this being better on tap.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2008
12oz bottle courtesy of mother in law. Cirus lemon and wet malt aroma. Golden body with white head. Lemon zest flavor with moderate bitter flavor. Good refreshing beer ona 110 degree day.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Verys olid pale ale. Lots of hops and very strong.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2008
(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.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle thanks to Funkybrewster. Not in great shape here. Pours a darker clear orange with a small frothy head. Soft piney and resiny caramel aroma. Flavor of some faded centennial hops, balanced caramel, doesn’t seem to be at its peak here.

Clear medium amber with a persistent head and splashes of lace. The taste is a crisp, clean caramel malt, followed with a light, but clear, hop finish. Doesn’t sound like much, but it makes a fine, easy-drinking brew. Don’t expect the world, just a good easy-drinking beer. Recommended.
