Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2006
On tap 7/15 @ "The Second City" comedy theater in Chicago. Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma has hints of a floral hops with some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty with a mild bitter finish. I found this well balanced and easy drinking since I had several pints during the comedy revue.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Pours a nice amber color with medium head and a little bit of lacing. A mix of flowery hops and caramel malt in the aroma. The malt flavor comes out when I take a drink. Easy drinking, nice on the palate.

Damn smooth pale ale. Orange in color. I drank these while fishing on the boat. damn tastey, but I was mostly concentrating on catching walleye.

Bottled. Dark golden in colour with a medium sized white head. Very nice aroma. Both malty and hoppy and notes of flowers. Well balanced sweetness and good mouthfeel.

linc33 (184) - Albany, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle at Galileo Cafe, O’Hare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if you’re passing through.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2006
English style? Well, not really. This was a lot better than the average sessioner in my pub here in the English Midlands. Clear amber with a small head. The aroma was very special. Just can’t put it into words. Less of the sweetness and sourness than a bitter, and a sharper, spicier hop taste. Might get a few more of these.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Clear and shiny light orange pour with a thin but very persistent cap of butter colored head. Aromas of oranges, candy, and a slight yeasty/Belgian funk, tart and estery. The tartness in the aroma makes it into the flavor, especially noticable on the roof of my mouth. Pleasantly bitter, balananced with a touch of sweetness. A little bit thin. A different sort of APA, but no really shining attributes, and not as clean as I expect for the style.
