On the lower end of the average scale but still respectable. Good little gateway IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hmm not a bad IPA, just a bit on the lighter side. Pours a relatively more pale copper orange color, some weak but presentable lacing and foam. Aroma is quite appetizing, rich maltiness and grapefruit and resin hops. Taste is the same, lots of bready malt and grapefruit hops, moderately bitter. Balanced but not subtle. Palate is thin and doesn't stick in the finish, which could be a plus for casual sessioning. A little bit of sweet fruit in the aftertaste too, fresh and summery. Not too sophisticated but pleasant overall.

A long time ago, on a college campus not that far away, in the mid 90ís, this beer along with Sierra Nevadaís Pale Ale changed my life... or at least my beer palate. Itís been a long long minute since Iíve tried the old girl. Iím sad to say she just doesnít stand up to todays IPAs, even at the tame end of the spectrum. The aroma is rather malty. The flavor is similar with very minute lingering dryness and bitter character. This is a beer best left in the memory banks, allowed to shine for what it once was.
