Draft sample at Cleveland brewpub. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hops aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Cleveland, Oh. - on tap at the brewpub. Medium copper pour, fluffy white head. Slightly floral aroma, some spruce. Flavor is standard APA brewpub - built for the masses - some bitterness, some syrupy sweetness. Funky aftertatste - left a bad taste in my mouth. Part of a sampler.

Aurelius (4167) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Lemon-butter-caramel aroma. Government-issue PA bronze. Watery, tarty, fuzzy bittering. Medium body, tangy finish. This one blew the shift.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2006
On Tap Cleveland - Poured amber with a short offwhite head that faded pretty quick. Aroma is of grapefruit but a fair amount of caramel comes through as well. Flavor is nice hoppy, grapefruit and pine notes. Also a fair malt background as notes of caramel come through. Medium bodied and full flavored with a nice bitter finish. Pretty nice pale.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 24, 2003
Had this at the brewpub while visiting Cleveland last weekend for the Disturbed concert. Faint citrus nose. Pours copper with orange highlights, typical tap head. The flavor is primarily floral and bitter. The medium body is dry and soft with an astringency to the finish.

Some hops, a little malt, but nothing exciting. Unpleasant aftertaste. Too thin.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2002
This one started off ok - brown body, good lacing. The malts were thick and the hop was strong - But the aftertaste - the poor poor aftertaste - was metallic and funky.

Cascade goodness, slight caramel, good clean fun.
