COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Certified Organic Extra Pale Ale is by far one of the most drinkable beers ever produced. This Certified Organic Ale was brewed for the true beer lover - with an exceptionally crisp palate and refreshing hop finish. This delicious beer is a perfect addition to any occasion; a hot summer day, after a long work day or any time you may have a call for an outstanding brew. We spared no expense in the design and brewing of this exceptional beer, all certified organic hops are flown in from New Zealand and the certified organic malt hails from the Pacific Northwest.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Pours a nice golden orangish color. Aroma is piney hops with some floral and fruit. Flavor of a classic pale, mildly sweet malt action followed by hop flavor bite, smooth throughout and a great finish.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2006
An orange beer with an OK, but disappearing light brown head. The aroma is sweet with a sharp hop note. The flavor is sweet spicy and hoppy, again somewhat sharp, but also notes of fruit in the back ground - primarily oranges. The body is boringly thin.

pinkzambia (1432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle: Cloudy gold with a fuzzy white head. A seemingly hop/malt balanced aroma, leaning more toward the hops though. Apricots, flowers. . . moderately bitter taste of soap, citrus cardboard. The feel is full and has a lot of carbonation. I liked it. Sure, it wasn’t the best, but it was better than 11% for it’s style.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Pours golden with an enormous rocky offwhite head that stays well. Aromas of lemon, and light grapefruit over grains. Flavor is grainy with biscuit malts, blended with citrus grapefruit and lemon finish. Highly carbonated. Fizzy mouthfeel. Crisp and clean finish. Fairly bitter as well on the finish. A pretty drinkable pale.

jake65 (2593) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Tasted like a lighter version of an IPA, pleasant taste overall. Malts, hops, and citrus are present, as well as the hint of nuttiness. The hints of nutty tones are present in the aroma with a light hop scent. Very drinkable pale ale.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Upon the pour from the stubby 12-ounce brown bottle, the beer sets in the glass a slightly hazy gold with a personable creamy bright white head that slowly erodes leaving a thin but concealing sheet of lace. Nose is sweet malt, nutty, hints of lemons, also has that musty tone, found in many organic beers, start is somewhat sweet, the grain presence delightful, top is middling in feel. Finish has a kindly acidity, the hops delectable in their spiciness, quite dry aftertaste, and a very drinkable beer.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 27, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 On tap. Orange with white head. Nice floral nose, and nicely balanced hops. Overall a nice ale to drink. Re-rate. I tried this again and feel they have improved this since the last rating. I feel it is one of the better APAs around, I have tried it both on tap and in the bottle. The tap version is really fresh and clean. Maybe because it is organic, the bottle version does not seem quite as good. The rating above is for draft.

ZaRue (11) - Laguna Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Almost overly formed head with a bit of beer beneath... Once this strong head settles you have a surprize of flavor in this organic pale ale. Slightly sweet open and a mild bitter finish. Ok, I admit I was pleased with this one.
