Poured a copper color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, light herbs, and toffee malts. Taste of caramel malts, with pine, tobacco, and faint citrus... some bitterness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2008 Keggerator. Aroma and flavor are more geared towards a heavy herbal german hop in the newer batches and less citrus. Northern Brewer for bittering and Perle for aroma. All scores about the same. Nice new style here- the german pale ale!
On tap at the brewery. Pours a moslty clear golden with a fluffly lasting white head. Aroma is the traditionaly cascade hops, perhaps blended with some german hops- hallertauer? Light pale malt profile- crisp light dough, cookie, and citrus hops all around. Nice clean bitterness in the finihs. Nice easy drinking pale ale. I would want more hops, but this is good.

A pretty nice American Pale Ale, poured with a nice initial head, good lacing on the way down. The aroma was citrus and fruity esters. The flavor was grapefruits first along with light fruits, grapes seemed to be present at times. A nice drinkable APA, refreshing and quite crisp.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
sampled at the brewery, thanks Greg. Light orange. medium carbonation. Aroma not very pronounced but I detected some light citrus and piney hops and some malt. Taste is sweet citrus and light pale malts, with an assertive piney bitterness that lingers throughout the finish. This one came in at 5.5 % abv and had a medium body. good!

With seven different hopes I thought this APA would have more of a pronounced bitterness and aroma. This was a good looking English bitter style pale ale.
