elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Balanced just a bit on the bitter side, could finish better. A good APA but not the best.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Nice golden appearance. Cascade aroma and profile come though nicely, and the hops and malt are well balanced. A good example of the style, but my bottle isnt tasting as good as it should. I’ve had this a few times before I’ve rated, so I will need to re-rate once I have a chance to sample again.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
Golden appearance, foamy white head. Sweet caramelly malt aroma. Spicey with a touch of vanilla and nice hoppy notes. Body is slightly roasty with a sweetish malt backbone and great balanced hoppy finish. Sierra Nevada does the pale ale right. Great balanced pale ale. Nice work here.

Crisp clean flavor could be less assaulting with the aftertaste though

rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - DEC 19, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 A pretty good beer. Has exceptionally nice flavor given its transparency and thin body. Perfect blend of hops and subtle honey sweetness. But not nearly enough flavor to be remarkable.

A great drinking beer. Better from the tap than from the bottle, but then again which beer isn’t
