Pretty good for an american beer, personally I think there's a lot nicer beers out there but thats just me. Still it has got an almost belgium pale ale feel, nice strong flavour and good colour. Fairly easy drinking.

Clear and golden. White head obviously had things to do cuz’ it didn’t stay around long. Grapefruit hop aroma lays nicely over hints of malt. Taste mirrors the aroma exactly. Moderately bitter finish. Nicely balanced and an enjoyable brew.

This is a great beer. It has a nice fruity, hoppy aroma. The taste is full, smooth, and quite balanced. I had this on tap at Jack Astors in Rochester, NY.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 Light amberish color, full rich fruit hop aroma, lucious hop honey fruit taste, with a slight sweet aftertaste, which lingers nicely. It seems perfectly blended. My favorite beer thats not a stout

One of my favorite APA's. The bitter bite on the end is always refreshing. Availability is a big plus. Consistent. Oakes is right.

Golden color with a very small white head. The taste is malty and hoppy, Very nice pale ale indeed.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Copper color, tan head. Plenty of citrus, quite hoppy, but staying within its means, also well balanced with enough malt. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. A constantly consistent beer, and often my oasis in beer wasteland.

xsketchyx (184) - Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Very hoppy even for an APA, lots of grapefruit flavor. Blows away every other pale ale I've had so far.
