Hmmm. Hoppy for sure, but not much beyond that. Lacking the complexity of flavor that makes the good american pale ales great. Not much in the way of esters, and malts are a little too bland and understated.

Nicely hopped, grapefruit-like flavor to this APA. Lots of citrus stuff going on. Maybe papaya? Dry finish, no lingering bitterness.

This is one hell of a clean, crisp, refreshing, well-hopped APA. Nice cascade hops in the aroma. Nice little malty sweetness on the tongue. Slighty hoppy finish. Each sip makes you thirst for more. I think I've found a new staple summer pale ale to go along with Blue Point Pale Ale.

Clear gold. Huge hoppy aroma. Equally matched in flavor with a perfect mixture of Fuggles and Cascades. Medium light bodied. Clean, crisp and quenching. Nicely bittered and not overly so. Great sessional.
