This beer rocks. This hazy, golden ale smells great... very spicey and a bit acrid. The beer is perfectly balanced and is extremely fizzy & dry in the mouth. WAY CARBONATED. A great summer beer.

This pours good and clear and has a nice amber color with a frothy head that smells like raisons and pears. The taste is pretty light and balanced with a small hoppy floral finish. If you like Pale Ale, this is a nice one.

I must have got a bad batch of this stuff, it was pretty horrible. But i would be willing to try it again.

Incredible head that began as soon as the cap was removed, and didn’t stop. The head is a root-beer-head color and the aroma is an interesting mild, sweet/sharp. The color is that of unfiltered honey. The flavor is interesting, but finishes really antiseptic -- like Pine Sol. It has a a very interesting quality, but overall really doesn’t do it for me.

This beer jumped out of the bottle -- took me 15 minutes to pour it because of the foaminess. At the end, though, I had a nice looking cloudy, light amber beer. The aroma is pine anitseptic -- can anyone say Pine Sol (thanks Kathy for pointing that out)? But assuming one can get past that, the flavor is much more solid -- the pine hoppiness is strong, but is balanced well with the malts. A very schizophrenic beer.

This is the best APA I have had outside of SN. The cascade hops came out in the aroma and in the taste. It sort of reminded me of a RedHook IPA. What saved it from becoming a RedHook IPA was the notes of malt which jumped out in the end to balance this bad boy out. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Great gateway pale ale.

Very enjoyable, simple brew.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2002
A most dissapointing pale ale. The hefty West Coast style malts up front give way to a thin, watery middle before finishing with slight but astringent bitterness. The aroma is almost entirely toffee, caramel and biscuit with only subdued hops. The empty middle was extremely dissapointing and ruined the entire beer for me. Otherwise, it wasn’t a bad beer.
