An assertively hopped American Pale Ale with citrusy and piney Cascade hops. Subtle malt flavors balance the hop profile and provide a satisfying dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 Pours a golden hazy color, with a nice big head of white. Aroma is a citrus hoppy smell, very clear and clean smelling. Taste is Citrus and hops, a perfect balance of the two. A little bit of malt, though dominated by the hops.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Without a doubt, Burning River is the best Pale Ale around. I keep a keg of it in my basement year round, and I canít get enough. Those wonderful Cascade hops produce a big hop presence unlike any other Pale. I agree with Benny, by saying this beer can stand up to many IPAís that Iíve had.

golden color with frothy white head with plenty of lace, crisp apple and hop aroma, crisp malt flavor with a dull hop finish, rolls on the tongue, the first beer my dad bought for me, a mile marker for sure.

Pours amber with a white head. Smell is hoopy. Taste is even more hoppy. This tastes more like an IPA than an APA. Very drinkable. Nothing bad about this beer at all. Probably the best APA Iíve had.

(12-ounce bottle, obtained in trade, thanks Brian!) This very flavorful, toasty pale ale is malty, moderately sweet, and somewhat fruity with a slight corn flavor and a solid, balancing hops bitterness; The toasty flavor is unusual for a pale ale and quite good; The mild nose is neither malty nor hoppy, but has a slightly unpleasant aroma; Medium bodied with a nice, pleasing mouthfeel; Medium golden color with a very slight haziness; Very large light tan head gradually settles out, leaving some thick lacing here and there on the glass

Pours an amberish color with a very thin head. A subtle aroma with hints of flowers. The tase was a tad odd... hints of malt and hops, a little citrus, but then it all vanishes as it seems the beer steals all moisture out of your mouth. Insanely dry finish. Burning River... no kidding!

Nice citrusy, hoppy aroma. Some floral. Smooth and creamy with some fizz. Crisp, clean, refreshing hops taste. Surprised by itís 94%ile rating. Was good but not that good.
