COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

17thfloor (2436) - 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.

msante79 (2212) - 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.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours gold with a thin white head that has decent retention. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine, toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel, citus and cookie dough up front, then a nice toast and cereal grain comes in alon with a some pine to finish it out along with a bread dough, toast and citrus fade. Palate is fairly light and crisp with a creamy entry, off dry finish and light, spritzy carbonation. Nice pale ale, decently hoppy, but has a nice, full malt profile without being overly sweet. It has a nice, clean, crisp and refreshing palate to boot. Awesomely balanced, nice summer quencher for sure.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Sampled on the brew tour. Enjoyed while a man coated in sweat danced drunkenly to the cover band and attempted to get with some other woman up there. Sorry man I guess sweet home alabama wasn’t her song. This ones for you. Pours a clear amber/orange with a white head. Malty nose carmel a few hints of cascade? hops. Clean flavors carmel, pear, grain. Decent, balanced, and clean but nothing special.

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.

That1Guy (2026) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Aight, rated this really low right away, but now that it’s warmed a little bit it’s passable as just aight. Many better pale ales out there, but this is refreshifying.

Trev (1985) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Pours clear medium gold with a thin head. Aroma is sweet maltiness and fruity hop. Fruity flavour, light biscuity malt undertones. Clean finish.

TXBadger (1763) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Good everyday pale ale. Pours a nice amber hue. Light hoppy pine on the nose. Pine and bread balance on the palate, with just a bit of hop bitterness on the finish.

arkurzynski (1691) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Pours nice golden/bronze. Aroma not overly hoppy, but above average. For my taste, not as bitter as I like in an APA, but again, decent. Like previous rater noted, background hint of toasted malt.

milewide (1682) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Weak grain aroma, and nothing but grain in the taste. Did have some lingering hop bitterness---that wasn’t in the aroma or taste. Light amber color, and thin body. Not a memorable brew!
