Tasty stuff from an overwrought style. Very malty and could pass as an ESB as well as an APA. My notes are a bit thin on this one--but lots of "orange" fruits, nectarines and such, and honey in aroma and flavor. Very creamy palate. Nice balance, and holy hell, this is 65 IBUs!!?? A super-nice APA; thanks Indra!

Aonther one of my favorite session beers. Aromatic hops dominate the nose with pine elements. There is also a subtle sweetness.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Pours light amber, with a large creamy off-white head that slowly diminishes, leaves great lacing. Aroma is of pale/bready malts, with a strong amount of cascade pine hoppiness. Flavor starts with some pale malts, a bit of woodiness, and finishes with a strong cascade hop presence. Medium-full body, dry, fairly bitter, very enjoyable.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Amber-brown, most clear, good beige head. Fairly bubbly , good lacing. Aroma is of weak cascades, slightly soapy? Decent body, meaty and hoppy, less bitter and acidic than Sierra Nevada. Pretty good hops flavor, lightish caramel malt flavor. Very soft for the amount of bitterness in it. Good offering.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Bright red-amber. Creamy beige head. Excellent lacing. Robust, flowery hoppy aroma (cascade) w/ pale malts & orange marmalade in the background. Medium-full bodied w/ just enough stickiness. Exceptionally balanced flavour. Fruity & malty up front. Lightly tart in the middle. Refreshingly bitter, earthy finish that is remarkably restrained.

flemdawg (533) - Naples, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Straw colored body with a decent white head. Hops all around in the aroma, really that's all I could pick out. More Hops in the taste, again, all I could get from it. Not too bad, but not super.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Slightly hazed dark golden colored liquid. Rocky/fluffy light cream colored head. Perfume laden pine needles. I swear I only get dated samples of from the brewery. Enjoy by date missing from bottle. Woody malt and light citruc flavors. Grapefruit rind finish. I will rerate this, but I'm tired of old stock sitting on shelves. the store and ditributor should be more conscience of these things.

Suttree (5260) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Orange with very little head. Hoppy aroma. Dry and dusty hops to start, and just enough malt - very unobtrusive. Really, I could drink a lot of this, if it was sold in the area. Impressive

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 Pleasing citrusy cascade aroma, not harsh or in-your-face. Delicate hop flavors, peachy, fruity. Dryish, medium body, bitter finish. Nicely balanced.

Nice pale ale, super hoppy, lots of hops everywhere, balance was pretty good as well as you taste the malt profile in the beer, very spicy flavors, dry & bitter finish, great pale ale
