COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This highly hopped California style Pale Ale showcases the brewer's art of balancing malt and hop characteristics. A generous addition of Munich malts balances the bittering from Chinook hops, and Cascade hops round out the flavor profile.

Gold color and slightly hazy with a few floating particles. The head mostly diminished. Floral hop aroma and a hint of butter rum. A well-balanced APA with moderate hop bitterness. A difficult and inferior encore to the Indica.

BBB63 (6445) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Light amber hue with small head but good lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Pronounced piney hop aroma with undertones of butterscotch and french toast. Taste is more subdued than expected however the finish is aggressively hoppy. A bit too one-diminsional IMO. Not enough malt characteristics. Watery and fizzy mouthfeel, metallic feel. Ho Hum beer.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Medium amber with a medium lasting creamy white head. Mild pacific hops aroma, light pine. I thought this was quite watery in taste with a thin body. Aftertaste is bitter hops. Average.

Hazy straw colored smell reminds me somewhat of a wheat beer. Thin lemon flavour as well as an unwelcome aftertaste much like an inferor wheat that I never like. Lost Coast lost the focus while making this Ale, thin palate unbalanced flavours and in my opinion a insult to the APA style, Not Recommended.

Gold/copper color. Small head. Aroma is fruity (apricots and peaches) and a touch spicy. A medium bodied Pale Ale. Malts are mild, nutty and a touch sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and grapefruity. A milder flavored pale ale, more in the English style than the over-the-top West Coast style. Very smooth taste. It’s a very drinkable pale ale. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Golden in color. Thin head that last. Orange and lemon are the taste.Hoppy at the end but sweet smooth finish. Good apa!

jaymobrown (1741) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Why yes it is rather pale. Like lemon water. Bitter front but mellows out in the end with some malt. A good APA. Nothing spectacular, but a good combination to keep it interesting for a session beer.

Suttree (5543) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Golden orange color, thinnish but surprisingly sturdy head. Citrus hop and a bit woodsy tasting. Very clean finish

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Pours a clear golden color with a small, white head. The aroma is a nice balance between the hops and malts. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is nicely balanced up front, with a decent hop finish that has a touch of sweetness. This is a solid American Pale Ale, flavorful and highly drinkable but not over the top with hops. Nice.

Tap @ brewery. I thought this was an English Pale Ale. Light golden color. Malts dominate with some hop balance.
