UPDATED: NOV 26, 2004 A well balanced and tame pale ale. Some hop aroma with some citrus notes, but no dry hops. Nice clean malt flavor and drinkable body. Almost clear deep amber color. Overall a nice pale ale.
Just had a growler for the holiday, and the aroma was fabulous. Hoppy and malty, with citrus tones. Excellent.

nicely done here...on tap at Harpers...orange-red body with large off-white head..aroma of bitter, citrus hops, bread, and major earth-tone qualitites...flavor is very similar (citrus and grassy hops, sediment, and a touch of floral qualitites)..finishes bitter

Really piney citrus aroma and taste. Darkest pale I’VE seen. Very tasty and bitter. What hops are these??? One of the better Harper’s brews.

Very typical, piney grapefruit, one-dimensional (malt? somewhere?) - drinkable and very nice looking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Harpers. Hazy deep orange body, medium/thick beige head. Light, biscuity aroma balanced by citrusy hops. Bready, biscuity body with moderate citrusy hops, well-balanced, becoming more bitter over time. Medium-bodied. A solid APA not pushing any boundaries.

amber with small head. by far the best of the flight that I had (not saying much). nice hop bite with decent flavor.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange body with minimal head. Aroma is distinctly hoppy -- pine mostly, withsome citrus. Crisp, really bitter, almost too much before it settles into a delightful bitter aftertaste. Not too much bitterness as much as absence of maltiness.

Yellow color with little head, but nice lace with what it did have. Nothing particularly notable, but mild and nice flavor.
