COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale ale is generously hopped yet balanced through the use of Munich and Crystal malts. Hops added after fermentation gives this American classic an intense aromatic bouquet. Enjoy!

Next time, I’ll pass. A bit too sweet for my palate, and though it is certainly drinkable, not my favorite. Not much hop, aroma is just okay with a little floral stuff going on, but certainly wouldn’t recommend.

I really enjoyed this beer. Packed with hops and citrus flavor makes for a great beer. Nicely bitter and smells fruity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjgmd (1358) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow golden pour with a nice foamy large head. Nose is citrus and pine with a predominance of grapefruit and a dash of lemon lime.Taste is full of citrus and pine and very drinkable, and quite light. Finish is dry with some mild bitterness. A solid APA. Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1315) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours a rusty orange with an off white head and mild aroma of light pine and caramel. Taste is bitter sweet, of caramel, hops, pine, and citrus with a dry, medium finish. Very drinkable, light APA

Scipio (677) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours a hazy, bright orange with a thin white head. The aroma is good, but it is more on the lighter side. I find pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. The taste is a little mild as well. Pine and grapefruit, with a bubblegummish flavor as well. The aftertaste is pine, and while being long lasting, is faint. Medium bodied here with a slick mouthful. I have found that it has a pretty good hoppy bite. Overall, I can’t find anything particularly special. Although I will drink it without complaining.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a very clean, amber color with a HUGE frothy white head. Aroma has a fantastic flowery, light citrus and strong pine resin nose. Flavor has a an early Munich malt toasted malt that combos well with the early pine bitterness. This transitions to a mild caramel malt sweetness with a very nice grapefruit citrus kick that carries out the finishing flavor. With its modest body, the brew holds the strong hops presence very nicely and even adds a slight dryness to it help accentuate the bitterness nicely. Overall a great beer that showcase what an APA should be with a stronger than average hopping but fantastic malt presence underneath.

akoeninger (396) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Intense hop aroma, Pine, grapefruit. Taste is very hoppy with little malt backbone. Bitter aftertaste and light almost watery finish. I’ve had better, but it still has its place with the right food.

Not sure why some low ratings. I live down the street so I’m probably bias. Very good, drinkable beer with nice florals and finish.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a cloudy orange amber with wisps of something darker floating around inside. Has a decent white head and good lacing. Aroma is first pine, then grapefruit, followed by sweet candy malt. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium with a sticky mouthfeel. A decent APA I hope to try again.
