Bronze/copper color, white head, retained, plenty of lace. Good dry-hopped aroma. Avery nice pale ale, hoppier than SNPA, which I like, good body with some malt presence. Nothing shocking here(cascade & centennial), well done but not original.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with some thin flakes. Thin foamy off white head. Very light carbonation. Evergreen aroma, light spearmint notes. Crisp and bold with bitter hop flavors, notes of evergreen and mint. Light toasted caramel hints. Medium bodied. Quaffable. Dryish with a spicy alcohol bite. Nicely balanced. Finishes mellow yet still bitterly hoppy with prominent evergreen flavors. A decent session brew.

Re-Rate 06/05/02: Nice deep amber color, the head frothy and beige, the nose lightly floral, huge ’Hits’ of malt. Front is sweet, the top is light, big hop finish, dry, acidic, and much more drinkable than their ’Red’.

Looks like I’m a member of the same beer club Gusler is. Aren’t we lucky!
I enjoyed this beer. Rich malt complemented well with strong hops. Nice and bitter flavor & aroma, most likely from the dry hopping. Very very tasty; mouth-watering flavor.
