02.01.06 12oz bottle. Burnished copper color with quickly fading whtie head that lingers as a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, mild citrus-grapefruit, light floral. Flavor is very low key, a real session pale ale, kind of thin and a bit on the watery side. However, this beer has nothing of what I was afraid of - it’s not oxidized, it’s not a diacetyl bomb, and it’s not full of black tea flavors. I’m still looking for evidence of this beer having been dry hopped with a ’load of cascade hops.’ In all, pleasant if unremarkable, I’d be glad to drink it any time (for free).

Very drinkable APA with nice caramel base and a refreshing grapefruit and pine PNW hop profile that balances the sweetness very well. I think of this as a decent session type beer.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours a translucent brown amber with an average foamy off white head. Aroma was a nice caramel malt and orange hop balance. A little light in the aroma overall. Flavor of a caramel malty slightly hoppy balance. A little piney/dry hop. Nothing over the top thats for sure. Went well with the spicye Mexican dish I had for dinner.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Amber color with thin head, pretty hoopy like all pale ales, piney and citrusy but not too much of a bite, overal good, but pale ale’s aren’t my style anyways.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Great drinking beer. Poured an amber like color, with a cream head of fleeting lifespan. light lacing. Some hops in the aroma. Smooth and quite nice for a pale ale. I will enjoy several more throughout the week.

Draft. nice aroma, Wonderful use of cascade hops. Copper amber color. Great balance of malt and hops. I am impressed by this brewer’s ability to produce both a pale ale and IPA without that inbred feeling.

Razor (6) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2006 does not count
From the bottle, pours out a really nice amber color. Fairly large off white head. Has a bit of a bitter skunky taste to it at first, but smoothes out towards the end. Little harsh for my taste but a good all around pale ale.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 12 oz. bottle. Pours decent, off-white head on a good pour. Light amber in color and lazy carbonation. Almost non-existent smell, save for a little honey and slight hops. The body is very light, with a little bit more skunk to it than I’d expect from a classic pale ale. Decent, but nothing to special order.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 bottle. I likey. Quite cirusy-perfumey flavor...flowers. Aroma of strong orange-grapefruit cocktail. smooth, pleasant. a bit fuller than average pale ale. odd coppery amber color w/ beige head. Drinking these gets old after you have a couple, it’s kinda blandish and has some off mix of hops and malt. The label also irritates me to great extent.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Amber, creamy off white head. Moderate piney, resinous hops and rich malt in the aroma. Strong hop flavor with decent malt backbone. Smooth, medium body. Good brew.
