COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours a hazy beige with a bubbly white head. Aroma is faint, yet mildly floral in the hops department. Nice, medium smooth mouthfeel with a astringency up front, although decent malt backbone. The finish is hoppy and dry. Nice.

This stuff is very good. It has a strong sweet taste, and a strong body. The aftertaste is good as well. The aroma smells almost like wine.

TChrome (1434) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Appealing citrus/hop aroma. Appearance is dark golden with good off white head that is retained. Flavor is nicely hoppy on the front end, some notes of grapefruit. Finish is a bit light but decent, dry and crisp. Very good Pale Ale. Excellent session beer.

A good IPA. Lots of hoppy goodness. Makes for a good drink while watching the Bowl for second place in the country - The Sugar Bowl.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Copper color, offwhite head, diminishing. Nice hoppy aroma, citrusy. Flavor was pretty well balanced between malt and hops. Hops were earthy and floral. Nice body, long finish. Pretty nice.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Copper color, lots of creamy head, no lacing. The aroma is largely hoppy, vaguely like snpa, hmm, maybe it's the cascades. The flavor is moderately bitter but mostly malty and sweet with light caramel. Finishes bright and flavorful. This is a really good APA, almost as much as an IPA.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Light amber pour with a nice white head with both small and large bubbles. Spice and hops in the aroma. Floral mostly in the hops, though there are some bitter hops. Earthy floral hop flavors with a nice balance of hops. Citrus is there with the flavor. Pine is definately there. Medium body, spicy palate and a bitter finish. Nice APA.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2003
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.
