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.

Had it in Cincinnati. Nice malt start with a mild hop dry/ bitter finish. A really nice pale ale.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 The best APA I’ve yet to try. Better than 3 Floyds Alpha King, better than SNPA, better than Anchor Liberty -- and noticeably so. Given all that, what APA out there is supposed to be better than this? (I ask this without having tried the Stone Pale Ale, and seeing as Stone is right on my wavelength taste-wise....) Highly hoppy with citrusy appearance, nice foam layer, big taste and mouthfeel, slightly sweet finish. First-rate.

jazz88 (2613) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 28, 2002
Bottle. A frothy head and a deep cooper-redish color. Fully hopped, dry, bitter, piney, almost course. A nice start but doesn’t finish the job for a pale ale.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2002
This beer poured out a nice light copper color. Formed a nice off white head that left some nice lace. Quite a bubbly beer, with an aroma of hops and some citrus. Nice hoppy flavor that gives it a bit of bite in its finish.

The best tasting of the twelve-pack assortment I tasted. Just a flavorfull and rewarding beer.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Rerate: Well, one hell of a lot of bottles of this latter, and the flavor is just great, some diacetyl mixing perfectly with the malt and hops. Yummy, but not as top of the heap as I thought years ago. Original: An excellent beer. I agree with the other raters that the citrus nose (grapefruit rind?)and slight citrus taste are wonderful. More drinkable, slightly less bold and thick than Bell’s Pale Ale

A nice very hoppy pale ale, with good citrus flavor, hopheads will surely enjoy this one

I just did not like this beer. Too many sweet things going on at one time. The aftertaste was that of a much cheaper beer. Maybe I got a bad six pack.
