Amber-yellow color. Dusty aroma. Simple, basic session beer. Fruity sweetness strikes my tastebuds after I swallow. Some dry bitterness in the finish. Nothing too exceptional. (on tap at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland)

Every now and again, you come accross a beer that blows your mind. This is one of those beers. Dark gold body with a small head. Aromas of hops and citrus that are really balanced very well. Taste is slightly hoppy with some nice bitterness in the back of the throat. Big thanks to Doug Shoemaker for hooking me up with this one!

Duke (117) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Cloudy gold. Big foamy white head with lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, floral. Good palate. Nice balance. Really enjoy this one.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Big hearty pale ale with an unfortunate name. Poors a deep cloudy golden colour. thick head with nice lacing. Great balance between bitter and malt, thick body, dry finish.

To be kind, I suppose I could say that this is a very distinctive APA. To be honest, I can't say it's all that pleasant of a distinction. The malt character did get better as it warmed, but the balance is off, and the finish is lingering acidic. No reason to do this one again.

Lubiere (10548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2004
Hazy gold with a white frothy head which collpases quickly. Had 2 versions, yellow snow and Seahorse. YS had a lighter hoppy nose than SH, but the bitterness was more intense in the YS, with lots more citrus. my take is that the YS was fresher (bought at LCBO) whereas SH was bought in upstate NY (tend to have old bottles). Both had nice bodies, creamy in mouth (tasted New year 2004)

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Hazy light amber with a thick diminishing white head. Aroma mostly of flowers and citrus with a hint of toasted bread. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing, but astringent. Slightly sweet initial flavor of honey, citrus and toast. Finishes slighly bitter with a hint of the juniper berries claimed on the label. Decent.

a poor example of an american pale ale flavored with juniper berries. Light hops, poor finish.

weird......my first impression of this beer is the aroma of coffee at a standard hotel chain. color is medium golden with a slight haze, head is thin and mostly not lasting. flavor is slightly grainy, moderately hoppy, with a roasty quality as well. if this is indeed an APA, it is quite unusual for the style..yet still kinda yummy.
