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.

jefcon (1514) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2005
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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Draft. Pours a gold orange color with white head. Moderate citrusy hop aroma, which allows some malt to come through. Flavor is not the huge, but does have a bit of citrus in it. A decent pale ale for the non-beer-devotee, I’d think.

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2005
From bottle. Pours a deep Orange/yellow, with a snow white thick head. Nose is very pleasing with lots of floweral/citurus tones, bight and sweet in a good way. Taste is light and hoppy with citurus undertones. An decent if not good Pale Ale.

Ungstrup (30812) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
An orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma is sweet with lots of citrus as well as some hops. The flavor is somewhat weird - but OK - it is malty with notes of malt, straw, grass, and citrus giving it a slight sourness, leading to a dry hoppy end.
