UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Nice pour with a great golden color and a decent head. The aroma is malty with a classic "beer" smell with hints of cascade hops. The cascade hops are up front on the tongue with the malty flavor following to balance things out. This is a much better beer than I remember. Maybe my beer palate is changing?

A good pale ale with a surprisingly genorous amount of american cascade hops. Definetly an american pale ale, not the british pale ales I am used to drinking.

well, why not rate this one? might as well finally get around to it. reminds me more of an amber than a pale ale. malt backbone was really strong in the most recent sample. i know lot of folks who dig this brew but i think it’s well below average.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 Bottled. A very good ale. A nice hop bitterness sets this one apart from other ales I drimk. When I bought this I was pleasantly suprised to see what a high rating this one has!! It lives up to the rating!! The head pours a little off white, and lasts awhile, and the aroma is somewhat malty -hoppy. The color is a nice deep almost copper color. Definately not one for the llight beer crowd, unless they want to step up to something special!

My staple beer. Long on flavor and high in specific gravity. If nothing else, the beckoning, hoppy aroma will draw you into the bottle.

Looks perfect poured into a glass. Malty, hoppy, with a long, bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 Its an ok IPA. I think the ones from Goose Island are much better. Not a bad choice but much better choices are out there.

Everyone’s favorite IPA, except, I don’t like IPAs. Great color and palate, refreshing and bitter, but I hate the aftertaste, very funky on my tongue.
