Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2002
Re-rate: Clean, light and effervescent. Mild hoppiness with a decent flavor. Moderate bitterness in the finish. An easily acceptable APA, but doesnít exhibit the character and charisma I seek in an APA. Good beer, but lacks personality.

12 ounce bottle. Malty fruity mess. Not much going on here. I think that about sums it up.

Bottle: Clear, honey-gold with a small off-white head. Orange, grain malt aroma. Taste is light orange-peel, barley malt. Grassy hops.... Not much going on in this one.

A perfectly serviceable pale ale. Nothing special about it, but it's pretty textbook. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beertholomeus (1545) - California, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours a golden color with a white head. Caramel, biscuit, floral hop, honey and pine aroma and flavors. Medium light body and average carbonation. Biscuit and floral finish. Not bad but pretty bland.

shrubber85 (9948) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle. Orange juice, biscuit malt, and light orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange, light malt, and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Light body. Okay but pretty boring.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 Bottle. Clear and still amber gold with a thin white head. Aroma is crystal malt, pine sap, nuts, grapefruit, fruit cocktail, mild butter. Medium bodied, sweet and fruity and candy-like with relatively low carbonation. Sweet, sticky, chewy, under-attenuated caramel malt pale ale.

RSRIZZO (1931) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Had this beer on 4/1/2003. Aroma has a nice fresh hop scent. Color is a bright clear gold with good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is bright and hoppy. Starting with a light body that goes down with a thin crisp feel. Finish is a light clean malt flavor that is backed by a fresh hop flavor and a gentle bitterness.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2006
This should be interesting - retired over a year and purchased last week. Acuctually, this APA held up rather well. Pouring a deep golden, nearly amber body with a slender head that does some fine lacing, itís got a well balanced aroma of caramel, tart oranges, and grapefruit. The malts take a sweeter turn in the flavor, but the hops kick in harder and keep it in check. Nice bitter finish. Too bad itís gone.

scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
I drank enough of these over the years to remember ... this is a real mountain water IPA. Very dark yellow, golden with a thin white head. No lacing. Grassy hops. Pretty refreshing, and not very alcoholic. BBC RIP

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle - malty and citrus hop aroma. Nice and cloudy. Dark gold. White, white head. Very tightly bubbled. Thin bodied. Some malt and some grass hops. Not a whole lot of flavor. Iím not sure when production of this beer was stopped, but it is already retired as I rate it. Iím guessing it is past its prime, then again, it didnít rate that highly - who knows?
