Pours a hazy light amber color. Interesting aroma and flavor of floral hops and caramel with a bitter finish. Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Itís good and straight to the point but somewhat uninspiring.

Boy am I mad that I canít get this one at home.
What a wonderful ale. Hoppy, refreshing, full bodied without being self-consciously huge. Smells good, tastes great and leave the hops to dance on the tongue. Bitter, full and refreshing. This is a great ale.

Initially pungent aroma, as if I just walked into the Small Mammal House at the zoo. Subsided to moderate pine hops with hints of nuts and ice cream, and a slight background of some sort of fuel... maybe kerosene. Spicy hop flavor to start with a woody, honey middle and a mildly bitter end. Golden amber color with a sudsy, almost-white head and teeny-tiny particles.

My brother introduced me to it last summer. Excellent beer and one of my personal favorites. If youíre tired of drinking watered down tasteless beer then give this pale ale a try. Full of flavor with a lot of bitterness at the begining but it smoothes out as you get into it. One of the best drunks Iíve ever been on too!

Pours a nice, golden color with mild carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. A bitt hoppy for a pale ale, but very enjoyable. Another fine effort from a great brewer.

Pours golden amber with a good off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Great balance of malt and hops in the flavor with hop bitterness picking up in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Very nice pale ale.

Continuing my voyage of discovery through North American beers (or at least the few that trickle into my local supermarket) I found this exceptional little bottle with an astonishingly complex aroma of herbs, flowers, even incense. Malty taste, and what I am coming to recognise as typically dry American bitterness.

I know many people like this beer but it doesnít work for me. I find it difficult to drink and find itís flavor somewhat confusing and complex. Sure, there is a lot going on here but just doesnít satisfy my taste. Technically, it a good beer but not my cup of tea at all.
