maybe i got a dud bottle of this. maybe, since this wasnīt one of the first microbrews i tasted, i didnīt have much of an emotional attachment to it. anyway to me it seemed decent but average. amber, surprisingly light citric aroma, light body, reasonable bitterness, nothing really stood out. anyway, since duff didnīt think much of the bottle we shared either, iīm guessing we got a stale one

This is a nice refreshing pale ale. Fruity, sharp hoppiness is the main player here. Good color and pleasant carbonation. Fruity, light malt flavors. Crisp and playful mouthfeel. This could be an everyday beer.

Very refreshing, surprisingly complex for a pale ale. Hops arenít over or underdone. Great when you want to have a few or nine.

A middle of the ground pale ale. Not terribly bitter. A delicious beer all in all. Good bang for your buck.

This beer is more than the sum of its parts. The hops are pronounced, but not really secial. The pour was OK, but not outstanding. The flavor is somewhat tart and bitter without being overpowering. Overall, this is a good beer but not a great one. It makes a terrific standby when Iím not sure what I want to drink.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Ok, 862 people have described this before me, and the hops/malt contingency are listed above in the official description, so why talk about what you already know? Letís talk about the beer itself. Itís extremely refreshing after a hot day outdoors. The hops get your attention, and grandly enough, KEEP your attention throughout the session. It is highly recommended with American food, as it cleanses the palate wonderfully, but doesnít stick around forever. Wonderful infusion for a PA. Like it, and definitely recommend it.

I canít argue with the fact that some quality resides with this beer. However, I have tried and I cannot get into this beer. I simply donít like the hoppy taste...this does not seem like beer to me. Oh well...
