Sample at APN. Pours amber, tons of piney hop. Caramel malts, well-balanced, finishes nicely.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Filtered tan-orange body. Steady thin white head. Warming alcohol tones amongst a creamy golden malt backbone. Respectably hopped. Not my favorite style...the high ABV Pale Ale that is. OK.

Has some nice citrus scents and pours a nice amber with a lacing head. Huge bitterness on first sip, strong grapefruit taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfect beer. Great aroma, head, and mouth feel. If you have one beer at Fitgers, make it this one.

On tap at Fitgers. A nice pale ale. Subtle hop flavour. More flavourful than most Pale Ales. Decent.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2010
On tap at Fitgers. Pour was medium hazy golden with a white head. Aroma was of cascade hops, some spice, peach, and grapefruit. Flavors were similar but a bit more rough on the tongue. Good brew, but could have been smoother.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Tried as part of a sampler on our way to haul the sailboat for the winter. Nice pale ale. Kind of like a Summit but with more flavor. Left with a growler.
