COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American pale ale brewed with Centennial hops and hopbacked with Cascade, it's a real refresher that has a spicy, citrus aroma and a slightly nutty malt flavor.

12oz bottle. Purchased while travelling. Very tasty brew for this style. Great session beer. Good caramel taste with just enough hops and bitterness to complete the picture.

Nice dark amber appearance, cidery looking, not much to the head or lacing. Nose is classic pine tar and grapefruit. Palate is similar, a touch watery, but nice balance of hoppiness and malt. Mouthfeel is sticky, with a bit of toffee in the taste too. Good.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Draft at KClingers. Copper with a thin tip, this seems like a standard American pale ale, crisp with a little appley hoppiness. Good. (#3908, 5/21/2010)

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a clear, bronze-golden body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is citrusy pines and florals with a nice, moderately sweet caramel. A bit of an amber nut, grain to the malts as well. Flavor is nice, but not as protruding as the aroma led me to believe. A well rounded, moderate caramel sweetness with a light nut. A moderate floral grapefruit and orange citrus with a light pine bitterness at the end. The malts get a bit bready as it warms and lose some of the citrus intensity. Finishes slightly dry after a medium, smooth, rounded body. Moderate length aftertaste. Overall, a nice pale ale. Not the most extreme, but an enjoyable hop and malt presence and great body. Smooth, well rounded, and very drinkable.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear copper pour with a thin off-white head. Orangy nose with some sweet malt. Malty flavor first with some citrusy hops and a bitter, yet thin finish. Was hoping for more in the flavor after the aroma was so good, but not bad.

22oz bomber from my man treyrab, gracias. Rating # 55. Copper pour with a white head. Piney hops with a toasty maltiness. Very smooth and very easy to drink. Had a decent, slight hop bite with very minimal aftertaste, very enjoyable. ꀘ)

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Draft at Otto’s Brewpub. This was their Friday night Firkin so it may be slightly different than the regular draft due to the special prep it received in the Firkin. A light tan head with dark amber body and nice lacing from top to bottom. Aroma was sweet and flowery. Very smooth with both floral and citrus notes and a slightly bitter finish that lasted. I’m normally not a big fan of pale ales but this was really good.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bomber. Pours a large, frothy, rocky, off-white head. Clear, copper body with good lacing. Big citrus hop aroma. Some orange, peach and pear. More hops in the flavor - floral and citric. Some earthy woodiness. Crystal malt makes its presence known. Medium body, average carbonation...slightly resinous/sticky finish. Overall a quite enjoyable APA.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bomber. Citric C-hop nose, grapefruit and orange. Clear orange pour with a clingy off-white head. Taste is heavy citrus, but not overpowering, grapefruit juice and OJ. Lightly bittersweet, finish is a little rubbery, and that last smack of lips/tongue is a little metallic. Medium-full body, not bad!
