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!

bottle. notes of pine, citrusy and grapefruit hops. some light bready caramel. decent balance. a bit herbal. some okay pine character, but a bit too bready, and a bit chalky. not clean.

Pours athin amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of cereal and floral hops. Flavor is slightly sour with little hop bitterness, dry and slightly bitter finish. Not really much of an IPA, more of an American Ale.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2010
nose is light cereal sweetness, occasional bready malt and beginnings of pine. appearance is light copper with good haze, big lacing and retaining film head. flavor is fruity with peach and touch of lime, big pine and breads to balance. well balanced APA that provides the hop fix and nears IPA territory without overstepping its bounds. infinitely sessionable.

Thanks guyinchicago. Amber pour with an egg white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is piney hops, a little watery. The hops are not pungent, but nevertheless, an ok beer.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange color, medium head. Beginning is slightly sweet and toffee flavors and crystal malts. Fresh pine like hop flavors and a dry finish. Residual flavor isn’t amazing, but I think this beer deserves more than 25th percentile.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2010
Pours a very hazy golden orange with thin white frothy head. Aroma is a mix of bread and floral notes with spruce undertones. Flavor is bready banana with almonds. Body is creamy but with medium carbonation.

I like an IPA you can session with but this was too lacking in body for me. Good head and nice nose. I love Oso so I was a little surprised that I didnt love this beer,

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was tall and off white. Very foamy with good retention and lacing. Nice enough aroma with caramel, pine, and citrus notes. Light to medium bodied and dry-ish with minimal bitterness at the end. Biscuity and subuded toffee malt character with earthy hop flavor. So so. Smelled okay, but not that great in the mouth.
