hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear golden ale with lots of floaties and a small, frothy, white head. Floral, estery nose with notes of fuzzy fruit, pear, orange peel, biscuit and pale/pilsener malts. Lightly sweet flavor up front, then woodsy and heavily bitter with a whisper of acidity. Medium to full-bodied and raspy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, tongue-numbingly bitter finish. This one was brewed and bottled by Jolly Pumpkin.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2007
Sample at the brewpub: This beer is a clear gold/amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing throughout. Cascade hops are easy to detect in the aroma in this one since they are the only kind. There is a touch of zesty citrus in the nose as well. Medium body with a citrusy hops flavor and a good malt base. The finish is moderately bitter hops and lingers awhile. A little one-sided at times, still a solid APA.

deyholla (5959) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 5, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipated slowly and laced nicely. Aroma had mainly citrus notes with a bit of backing pine and bread. Flavor was more malty with the citrus becoming a background, a bit more pine in the finish, and bread and grains throughout.

Clear amber with a tight head. Mildly sweet pale malt aroma. Medium body. Nice sweet honey bread flavors with some mild piney hops. No off flavors, very drinkable pale here. Draft @ the brewpub

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. The body was dark amber with a white head. The aroma was grapefruit and toast. Very straight forward. The taste was grapefruit with some nutty almonds. Drinkable, but boring.

thedm (4886) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 19, 2004
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of unnoted finely sized long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and golden in color. Its aroma contained mild pale ale notes of malts hops and caramel . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly finish. Its flavor contained mild pale ale malty hoppy notes. I liked it for an Pale Ale.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Draught sample at the brewpub, early August 2006. Faintly hazy dark gold with a thick moderate-sized lasting head and just a touch of lacing....lots of those yummy Cascade grapefruity smells, caramel and a bit of apricot in the fine aroma....smooth and creamy mouthfeel, a bit of caramelized sugars, dry and grassy lingering citric bitterness dominates through to the finish....typical but nicely done.
