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: AUG 3, 2005 Re-rated from draft at GLBC, Cleveland. Similar in color to their IPA, but less hoppy (duh). Instead a distinct hop, I get more a solid "bitterness." Nicely balanced to the malts.
Original rating, 9/16/03. Score: 3.9. Draft. Has a big grapefruity smell and taste, almost like a wheat beer. The hoppy taste subtly changes as my glass warms up, to a more bitter aspect like an IPA. Excellent appearance and head for this style. I sampled this at a homebrew party among a sea of Oktoberfest beers, so this is a refreshing and welcome change of pace.

One of my favorite American Pale Ales. I have very much enjoyed both Great Lakes beers I have tried.

Bottle. Copper in color with medium white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is fruity with some citrus, rounded out with some malty sweetness. Just enough bitterness for a crisp finish. This is a really enjoyable pale ale.

Drank on tap into a pint glass at the Tipsy Turtle. Pours golden with slight white head and decent carbonation. Tastes of hops but not overpowering with a nice crisp, piney flavor.

12 oz bottle. Amber, orange and a bubbly white head. Smells of caramel and flowers. Brown sugar, smoke, toffee, grass. Medium body, filmy finish. Kind of boring.

Pretty malty compared to many of the current hoppy APA’s on the market. Not bad.

Draft at Stocks and Blondes in Chicago. An English feeling pale ale with savory malts underneath a crisp herbal hop profile. Slight toffee character. Dry finish.

willisread (621) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear orange with medium eggshell colored head. Citrus, caramel malts on the nose. Starts out fairly sweet on the palate with a nice bitter finish. Well-balanced but not very interesting...still solid.
