Absolutely wonderful. Tastes much like an IPA with a nice amount of hops. Pours nicely with a half inch white head and the beer itself is darker (think Sam Adams Boston Lager). Taste and palate is beautiful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A damn good APA. Dark golden pour with a decent white head. Aroma is piney, hoppy, very floral. Flavor is much the same with hops coming out throughout with a good malt backbone holding it’s end up. I took home a growler. Hopefully this beer gets put into regular rotation there as I enjoyed it immensely. Meal tip: Try this beer with some of McKenzie’s salsa and chips. Excellent stuff.

No aroma to speak of but the flavor swoed up with a nice citrus twist. Hoppy as well but. Middle of the road.

Very crisp, very clean, smooth pale ale, a little lighter on the color side as it was a bright copper color, but nicely hopped, spicey aftertaste, very enjoyable APA

Cloudy amber body, no head. Finally a beer from this place I can get into! Big, hoppy flavor, with all the elements of citrus, pine, and loads of floweryness. I could drink this all night.

Medium size offwhite head, good lasting lace. Clear gold/copper color, good looking brew. Good spicey hop nose. Medium body, nice mouthfeel. Plenty of hop flavors with a good malt backing. Hops are resiny, moreso as it warms up. Finish is dry with a clean hop flavor. Good drinkin brew! Nice pub also.

A nice pale ale. Very hoppy, with a deep yellow color, and aromas of hops, citrus, and slight honey. Finishes smooth and sweeter than the first taste. Nice.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 On draft at McKenzie II. Poured a dark copper. Very nice aroma; piney with lots of fruit, even some banana esters. Flavor was a solid APA. Solid malt backbone to this one. Not all that hoppy. What is it with brewpubs not being able to properly carbonate their beer? Seriously, I think every brewpub I’ve ever been to needs a lesson on carbonation and how important a beer’s appearance is...
