Light floral hop scent with some hints of caramel malt in the aroma. Mahogany colored body with a nice off-white head. The palate is full and leads to a really easy to drink brew that is nicely balanced between hops and malt. Hoppier than most pale ales--this is very solid.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 yeasty for a pale ale. caramel aroma. nice hops, pretty good aroma. sweet. taste is pretty bitter, but actually not too bad. not too good by american pale ale standards though. not much more going on than bitterness although there is an interestingly strong malt backbone. good body. not sure what this beer is exactly.

TheEpeeist (3446) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Clear tea with a frothy white head. Bready fresh oranges. Quite bitter with a limey edge. Touch of orange marmalade. Oily mineral finish, light carb. A hoppy pale for sure.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle from The_Epeeist. Thanks, Chris. Hazy orange with a medium head. Head turns rocky after a while, and leaves spare lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, and caramel malts. Nice, flavorful balance. A little citrus with a huge backbone of malts. Definitely has an American flavor, but it’s falls a little below average in the assertive/hoppy category for the style. Medium body. Extra dry finish. Very good on its own merits.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2007
0.5L bottle. Cloudy copper color with a frothy off-white head. Caramel aroma with a bit of bourbon and citrus. Rich malty (toffee) flavor with citrus, honey and some vanilla oakiness. Citrusy hop finish. Full and smooth palate. A little cost prohibitive over here, but a very nice take on an APA from the Norwegians.
