Amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Big hoppy aroma, mostly pine, with some peach, orange, grass, and furthermore some toffee, malt and bread. Sweet and malty with enough bitterness and hop flavour to embarras most IPAs. Lasting grapefruit and pine aftertaste. Big and creamy mouthfeel.

The aroma is reallly hoppy...I would have labeled it as an IPA if i had to guess. The flavor is hoppy as well, not crazy bitterness... maybe some citrus in there? grapefruit?

Great pour with a nice head and a nice copper color that absorbs the light. The aroma is hoppy with a bit of an orange smell. Nice sweet and hoppy taste with a clean finish. An excellent pale ale!

Had this beer on 4/23/2003. Aroma is full of fresh hops. Color is a crisp clear gold with ok carbonation and a nice head. When opening the can it seems as though there is going to be no carbonation but this is not the case. Taste is fresh and hoppy. Starting with a light body it goes down with a lightly cream feel. Finish is a creamy malt flavor baked by a fresh hop flavor and nice bitterness. Overall this is a top notch pale ale.

Can thanks to radiomg. As the can says it’s a "Mutha of a Pale Ale", very true. Pours a dark amber/orange with nice off-white head and sticky lacing. A huge amount of bitter resinous hops, grapefruit, and citrus. Plenty of malt to back it up too, caramel, brown sugar, and bread. Very well balanced and goes way beyond many IPA.

Can pours a hazy orange amber with a fairly coarse beige head. Moderate malty and slightly soapy hop aroma. Big hoppy flavor. Rather soapy and piney. Plenty of psudeu micro IPAs can’t keep up with this.

Love the idea of a quality beer in a can. Great pale ale - smells of cream and cascade hops. Great, fresh hop flavor - like spring water with hop, cream and a touch of malt. Fresh hop in the aftertaste - quite bitter and dry. The can is a great choice - it tastes like a fresh from the brewery APA. Very fresh tasting.

Pours a clear copper color with a two inch head into the lager glass. A floral hoppy nose with some earthy notes. The flavor was piney with a solid malt backbone. Earthy, dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable and refreshing pale ale.
