Talk about a "lawnmower beer," this tastes like it was shot out of one! Thatís a little too harsh, but really- this thing tastes like grass. Not much of a real hop kick to it, but at least there is some flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2005 The best mass-market IPA Iíve had. Heavy, citrusy hops. Heavy bitter finish. This is a tasty beer. Well worth the price.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Pours a cloudy orange color with a bright white foamy head. Nose is piney, sweet. taste is light citrus fruits, some more pine, a nice hint of sugar and a light bitter palate.

The smell of this beer never fails to get my mouth watering, the aroma is just in-your-face Cascade hops. Crisp, hoppy flavor with a fruity malt finish.

Cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malty and fruity with a fresh hoppyness. Flavor is mostly hoppy and bitter with a slight sourness. dry bitter finish. Nice smooth palate.

Obviously one of the most popular pale ales. I will drink this is on tap regularly because this may be the only non-Miller/Busch product available at many bars in San Diego.

It does not smell all that bad, but the taste has something to be desired, but then again I am not much pale ale drinker either, but something I would not buy for myself to drink. I would suggest to others if they are into something hoppy

Bottle. Dark golden with nice head and lace. Sweet and pleasently hopppy - lesser hop-punch than expected. Dry finish. My expectations werenít quite met though it is nice enough.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a light gold color. with a quickly dissapating white head. aroma is very faint hops. flavor is crisp and mildly hoppy, with a slightly bitter finish. overall, a good pale ale. sort of boring, but thats the point. i can see myself buying this often, though, because itís pretty cheap and good.
