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.

Creamy, off-white head. Good lacing and nice retention. Aroma is slightly malty with a strong grain/hay smell. Hope nose is pine and grass. Body is clear copper. Flavor is slightly malty and very similar to aroma. Very haylike in flavor. Not balanced very well--salty aftertaste and overly strong hay detracts from flavor--like drinking straw. Dry finish, slightly chalky.

This clear golden ale wears a medium sized off-whtie head, fully diminishing unfortunately. Aroma is not so pronounced, I expected a big cascade predominance. We rather face a complex hop blend that I'd describe as earthy, oily, spicy and bold. As it enters the mouth, it's a delight of ever evolving character. A good chunk of malt is always there literally dancing with the complex hops blend as described above in a perfect balance and harmony. The medium body never fails to support those intense sweet toasty cerealic citrus flavors. Medium carbonation. Overall, there's just something about this american pale ale that makes me feel like it's the best I've ever taken, I know you've had that feeling about some beers too:) Big props to ciderguy for this unique opportunity!

UPDATED: APR 6, 2010 A crisp, crunchy cereal pendulum sways back and forth on the tongue, oscillating between straw-like malt silos and hop oil reservoirs...Delicate citrus fruit distinctly grace the taste horizon as dextrous honeydew successfully balances it all...A glass of resplendent simplicity...

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 (1447) - 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.

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 (1844) - 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.
