COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We're proud to present American Dream Ale, our unique West Coast IPA, in honor of American Beer Month. We picked the finest hops from Washington's Yakima Valley to give this historic pale ale a decidedly American twist. Floral, citrus and pine character burst from the Yakima hops to mix with the crisp, slightly dry malt flavor for a never bitter ale even the snobbiest limey would love.

Very pale gold. Big but fake-looking head (too level!) Smells nice - simcoe, strawberries, cascade, citrus. Flavour...moderate bitterness, more floral citrusy hops. Clean, slightly estery finish.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 (draft at District ChopHouse) Clear amber body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, some caramel. Creamy, medium body. Yeah the hops are he main attraction, but the malts are what make this a very well-balanced beer.

cloudy burnt orange, fine white head, scattered lace, sweet pine and citrus aroma, lots of sweet tangerine flavor, light bitterness balances the sweetness but allows the hop flavor take center stage, bitterness grows but stays in its place,

Draft in Cincy. Dark hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy sour citrus spruce aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium balanced bitter sweet flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. This is standout beer both local and national.
