3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As pales go, this is a very good beer. Malty with some hops and a nice citrus back. Better than a Sierra, but about the same in every category as a Firehouse with less hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of IndianaRed. Dark copper/amberish with huge off white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma and flavor just standard apa, but very well balanced. Caramel/toffee offset by pine hop presence. Very clean mouthfeel, from the almost unibroue like carbonation, doesn’t really detract though. Very sessionable overall.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a light head. Light carbonation. Nice citrus hop aroma. Has some nice hop flavoring with some malt sweetness to back it it up. Smooth medium body beer. A good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 A decent pale ale, although nothing special. hopy citrus flavor with notes of caramel. I almost thought it was a little weak compared to other APA’s out there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Outside of a huge head and some great lacing, this beer wasn’t all that memorable. A definite hops presence in the aroma and flavor, this one mixes in with the rest of your pale ale / IPA selections out there. Try it if you can, but if you can’t….

Is a pretty nice pale ale. Has a rich amber color and leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste in your mouth.
