UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Canned - of course. Pretty good maybe not quite as awesome as its reputation might indicate. Amber, hops etc, well balanced. I like it, don’t get me wrong.

Aluminum can from South Bay Drugs: Created a huge development of thick patchy foam while the liquid appeared as a burnt orange hue. Aroma is bold with an upfront serving of strong west coast hops that amaze me, and make me wonder is this really a pale ale style? The flavor is heavy with west coast style hops and comes across high in alcohol making this above average for the typical pale ale style especially from an aluminum can.

Draft at Cedar Point. First time I’ve had this on draft but have had many cans through the years. Pours amber with fluffy off-white head and lace. Hoppy nose with grapefruit and pine, some caramel. Medium body. Sweet up front with a moderately bitter finish. This used to be one of my favorite APAs but I suppose my tastes have changed but still a really solid beer.

If there should be a prototype American Pale Ale, it should be this one. Pours a crisp, clear and beautiful amber ale with small head but decent lacing.
Aroma is very subtle on the grass side, but with all pale ales there isn't much happening in the nose.
The taste is very well balanced with quite a good load of hoppy bitterness. There's a lot happening in the taste. The malts are really nice for this beer and necessitates the balance.
Good palate and excellent as a cold beer.

The original craft can. This beer brought me to my love of APA’s. The only complaint I ever have is some of the onion tastes that you get while drinking. Still, great beer.

Deep golden pour. Aroma is citrusy hops, spruce, and a little floral. Medium bodied. Flavour has good hop flavour with good balance. There’s some bitterness on the finish, but it’s restrained. Quite good.
