Pours a clear amber with average head. Aroma is lightly floral with detectable hops. Flavor is sweet with more hops than usually for an APA. Finishes nicely. Nothing overly impressive in this one.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Bottle. A dark golden color with an off-white head. The nose is fruity and hoppy. It's smooth on the palate and easy to drink with a touch of malt at the finish.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2003 Floral notes with citrus. Typical of Cascade hops and its northwest cousins. Prefect malt balance clean flavor some may miss the yeasty flavors that many other pale ales have but this is a favorite of mine

Fruity malt nose. The Hales signature fruity yeast make itself known in the flavor. Medium hop ending.
