Amber in color, aroma of all the hops, this is a nice IPA. Very good balance of all the hops and flavors

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great colour and a very large pale white head. Great hoppy smell full of the other APA characters. A defintely full flavoured beer full of hop characters. A really balanced APA which anyone should definately try! Tasted at MacGregor's on Tap in Rochester, New York.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average Pale at best. Color was a coppery-orange with a slight yellow-tan head. Start was overpowered with ethanol flavor and never really captivated my tongue. Alcohol was noticed throughout the finish as well. I have had better, but I have also had worse.

for some reason i had remembered this as being a terrible watery beer, but upon a second tasting i was surprised with a nice pale ale--darker in color than i had expected, a deep almost amber coloring with a full hoppy nose. full of flavor and hop, a bit fruity and a bit thinner than i'd have liked, but overall quite a solid beer.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Great hoppy aroma. Beautiful coloring, but a little thin and watery tasting.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 I used to drink this all the damn time..Color is breathtaking..a golden color with subliminal red tones..
The head always sits tall, rigid, and super frothy..
Aroma is a breathtakingly cherry extacy..I still love this, after all these beerz.. Hoppiness morphs to a childhood experience of the first experience of a fruit cocktail..(lovin those lil’ cherries)..Wam Bam..I mean..this is comin from a brewpub ladies and gents..

Amber, Cascade aroma; lot of bitterness; not sure if this couldn’t do with some more malts.
