Pours a cloudy yellow body with minimal white head. Buring nose hops in the aroma, citrus. Huge citrus taste, slight sweetness up front. Lots of hops. Finish is bitter, with quite a bite to it. Nice!

Nice golden brown color with nice hops & grapefruit aroma. Love the sweetness and bitterness together in the initial flavor. Finish is a bit too floral for my taste, but this is a great APA. Truly a beer lovers beer, others just cringe and question your sanity.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 My favorite beer. Nice amber color with a bit of yeast floating around (bottle conditioned). Decent head with good lacing. A perfect balance of malt and delicious cascade hops. Citrus and grapefruit notes throughout. This is one of the few beers that I try and suck the taste from the brew as it passes by my lips. If i could have only one beer the rest of my life, this would be it. It’s one of the few great beers you can find anywhere. From a grocery store to a gas station. Perfect .

I’ve had this many times, just haven’t got a chance to rate it. Pours a deep golden/amber body, some good carbanation. Medium slightly off-white head that left nice ring till the end. Good crisp hoppy, floral aroma, that I couldn’t quite find. First sip has a nice spicy bite on your tongue. Dry hoppy flavor. Sweet, very smooth. Left some sediment at the bottom of the glass. For a very common beer, this has all the elements of a good APA.

Bottle. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. Golden colour, stable head. Flowery, aromatic bitterness. Creamy head and mouthfeel. Distinct bitterness nicely balanced by the floweriness.
