Ruskie (6) - USA - JUN 10, 2008 does not count
A lot less bitter than most ales I tried, and seems to have pleasant wheat taste. Head is unbelievably fluffy!

BiddleBrau (1144) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Average pale ale. It doesn’t stand up to the most notable American pale ales out there. Nothing jumps out as prominent in any way but drinkable.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Again, Shipyard not a favorite and American Pale not a favorite ... but this is different from my expectations. More of a dark amber. Citrus and sweet fruit in the nose. Clear dark amber, small head. Taste of amber malts, caramel, sweet fruit, and a hoppy finish, with lingering sweet fruit as well. Apples? Peaches? Of course not ... but not just caramel either. Not unpleasant but not something that I would seek out again.

MrBunn (2727) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a pretty big, fluffy head. Aromas are caramel and apple juice with a touch of grass. Flavor has a funky mix of toffee (didn’t see that coming) and crisp citrus hops. Comes off as fairly bitter and nciely refreshing.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Tasted 5/13/08. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Clinging off-white head. Caramel bready aromas. Touch orange and grassy hops. Medium bodied and nutty. Tangy and tart. Dry rye bitterness. Solid pale ale style. Caramel and slight fudgy note. Woody earthy hops. Good balance and palate.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Caramlly orange color with creamy ivory he3ad, mild lacing. Lemony citrus hop aroma. Flavor is mildly bitter, citrussy, medium graininess throws it off a bit. Finishes somewhat plasticy for me.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Aroma was very malty/grainy with some sweet fruity notes. Deep orange in color. Nice smooth wheat flavor in the start and some hop bitterness comes through in the finish of this medium bodied pale ale. Like Peak’s other’s, surprisingly good, but not the best.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours golden with a fluffy off-white sudsy head. Sweet grainy aroma. Flavor is artificial sweet malts with medium bitterness, quite grainy. Average palate, medium light with sparkly corse carbonation. Has flavor, however it is not a very coherent brew.

2.3

JPDIPSO (5569) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Amber color with a moderate, fairly lasting light khaki colored Head. Interesting aromas of light grapefruit, caraway and rye. I’m suddenly wanting tar-tar. Hints of peat float in and out. Sweet husky malt and a bit of citric zest. This has more light brown flavors than any APA that I can remember. Really not much that I am embracing in this one.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - APR 28, 2008
a smooth brew that is not nearly as overpowering as the usual apa. the appearance is amber hued with a large beige head. mildly sweet aroma with just a hint of citrus and a bit caramelly. the flavor is fruity and properly hoppy; it finishes slightly bitter.
