COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

madvike (2733) - 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.

iowaherkeye (2691) - 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.

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.

(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 (2430) - 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.

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2011
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.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours light golden amber with white head. Aroma is hops and lemon citrus. Flavor is well balanced between malt and hops with citrus notes. Could drink this all day. It may not be overly complex but makes up with balance and drinkability.

nakedwhendrunk (2121) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent hazy orange looking color with a slight transparency about it that allowed a fair carbonation to be seen rising. There was less than a finger’s worth of head. The smell was based around some light sweet pine with just a tad of light sweet caramel malt. The taste was mainly sweet around the piney hops and sweet caramel malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s nothing off and there’s nothing spectacular about it. Overall, an everyday APA worthy of having again and would probably be a pretty good pizza beer.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours an attractive orangeish colour with a small thin white head. Nice lacing, decent amount of citrus character but weak on the hops and a little unbalanced. Nice ale from Capital, normally a big fan of their brew. But this one needs a little work.
