COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, red ale is made in the American Pale Ale style. It has a strong hop character, medium body, dry finish, and floral hop aroma. We use pale Two-Row Brewerís malt, Caramel 80 and 40 Lovibond malt, and Munich malt. For bittering and aroma Willamette, Cascade, and Tettnang hops are used in the kettle and as dry hopping in the fermenter.

Bottled: Amber coloured. Dark beige head. Aroma is floral and malty. Flavour is flowery, hoppy, malty and sweet. Has some fruity notes. Is light malty with a touch of bitterness in the end. I like this one.

6/3/04 bottling date. Poured copper with vey small head. Aroma of fresh grains. Taste has a sharp hop bitter bite right up front. Actually the hops over power the maltiness that Iíve become used to from Dominion beers. Slight orange and spicy taste as well. Thanks Bert (Slob) for this.

On tap at the Brew Pub. Deep amber color with a decent sized cream colored head. Nice hoppy aroma. Some earthy notes as well. Hint of caramel in the flavor with the main stint of hops. A nice Pale Ale but doesnít live up to the New River.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2004
(Bottle) Amber with a small creamy white head. Floral, hoppy aroma with touches of toffee and butter. Nice! Flavour doesnít live up to the aroma. Caramelly flavour with floral hops. Thin and empty palate. Medium bitter finish.

I was unsure what to expect from this Pale Ale. Cascade hops dominate the aroma,and blend well with the malitness of this APA.

Bottling date 04oct2002. Plus for label. Nice malty taste, well balanced. Surely complex. A worthy last of the session beer.

Not what I expected. If I didnít know better, Iíd think they mislabeled my bottle. Very malty (caramel and toffee) and dominated by the taste of passion fruit (Iím not even sure what this is but it describes it well in my head and thatís all that matters). I found this to be a very different Pale Ale and although I didnít enjoy it very much, Iíd recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different. Its well done, just not to my liking.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2004
On tap at brewery: Medium amber clear colour under a pale yellow medium small lasting head. Medium intensity floral nectar watermellon and passion fruit like aroma. Medium crisp floral hoppy flavours. Smooth mellow light sweet malty and dry hoppy finish. I quite liked this one.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Pours a deep amber red with a thick, creamy off-white head. Has a ton of caramel/kilned malts in the nose with along with plenty of Casade.. Flavor has beautiful blast of toasted malt and caramel then gives way to notes of toffee, munich malt, cascade/euro hops. Moderately sweet with assertive (but not harsh) hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and lively carbonation. Great lacing and head retention. Although this beer has received good ratings, it kind of gets lost in the mix between the fantastic New River and Tuppers Hop Pocket Ale. Donít pass on this one, itís quite good.

(Draught) Pours and orange-amber body with a thin, white head. Nose and cascade flavour. Tart, dry finish. Above average.
