nice amber/copper color....seems to have a thin mouth feel but still allowing the hops to come through... its a lighter, more refreshing IPA

Copper in color with a slight head. Nice hop taste and aroma. Not too hoppy so not to scare you off. Nice hint of malt with a good finish. Good anytime beer.

It had some nice hoppiness and a copppery color/tone. This is my favorite of all this company’s beers so far. The hops give it a distinct quality the other "balanced" beers lack.

A decent APA. Lots of hops but is balanced adequately with the malt so its not overpowering. I wouldn’t complain if i had it again, but there are other things i would buy for myself.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2005
bottle. Golden copper colored with a small foamy white head. Balanced nicely between the malt and hops so the sweet malt doesnt overpower what I would characterize as a lsomewhat light hop finish. Refreshing and pretty heavily carbonated a good summer beer, nothing amazing but definately satisfying.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Very good work on the malt/hop balance, the way the tastes compete is very excellent. Hops are mild, yet persistent, while there is some dry sweetness. Tastes of toffee, sweet potato, and light cookie. Carbonation makes the brew a small bit too rough.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a deep ruby/amber color with a finger of off white cap. The nose was weak; smelling of yeasty esters and little to no malt or hop aroma. The taste started with molasses and caramel malts followed by a mild to medium piney bitterness. The end balanced a light fruitiness with the same piney hops. The feel was medium. This is a slightly above average APA. Refreshing, but there many i would choose ahead of it.

Nothing special in the glass, but great hops on the aroma. Orange and banana, some spice, and some slight chocolate. Tasting is like a straightforward pale ale. Lots of bite, but then a bitter/sour finish. The hops are the most compelling thing about this pale ale, even if they do not overpower the somewhat watery palate.
