Had at the brewpub in Larkspur. Poured amber with some haze. Aroma is mainly hops, pine, citrus and grass. Taste is clean and hoppy. Much what you would expect from an APA. Thin body with dry finish. Pretty good but not a top 10 APA.

Hazy amber with a medium uneven off-white head, nonlasting. Aroma is a little more citrus than pine, both are noticable. The pine is a little more apparent in the taste and finish. It seems somewhat thin.

Aroma reminded me of a illegal herb I tried in high school. Slighty hoppy but mostly fruity. A very fruit taste not like standard IPA's. To fruity and apricot flavor. definitly out of balannce. I've tried to beers from this brewery and from now on I'll avoid the like the plague.

A really great beer. One of my favorite pale ales. Clean and very smooth.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Brownish cloudy amber, decent head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Fairly well balanced malt and hops, drinks like a light IPA, which is not a problem.

Bottle. A dark golden color with a creamy tan head. The pine, hops, and citric notes rip through the nose with furious vengeance. It's clean and smooth in the mouth. It leaves the pine and hop residue on the palate. I like my APA's like this.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Highly foamy, cloudy amber body. Enticing piney, citric hop aroma. Sweet pineapple front, fairly hoppy and dry in the finish. Starts out really well but just runs out of flavor after a few sips.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2002
Cloudy amber; Pleasant hop aroma; harsh hops on the palate, astringency, little malt. Maybe not at its best, but not gone off far enough to know for sure. Need another bottle.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 19, 2002
Huge head, thick and creamy. Some bitterness, sweet as well. There was something missing in this one (character?)

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2002
Cloudy dark orange color, with chunks floating about. Organic, grassy, slight citrus and alcohol in the nose. Slightly bitter, plasticky and slightly organic. OK pale ale.
