This beer is all about the hops. Very good light taste completely dominated by hops. If you want to know what they taste like try this beer. Very clean crisp beer though, i like it for a daily drinking beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 A classic American Pale Ale. I canít
believe I havenít rated this one yet. Golden/orange color with a good sized
white head. Aroma of cascade hops
is predominant. Crisp, clean refreshing
hop taste with a hint of citrus.

Pours a light-amber color, with a small head. Aroma is hops, hops, and some more hops. Flavor is awesome, very balanced hop body with a slight roast, fruit bouquet. Overall one of the best Macros out there!

Pours an amber colour with a thin but quickly dissapating head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma. The flavour is the standout in this experience, a good hop hit, floral notes and a big amount of summer fruits. I can see why this would be such a great session beer. Yum

This is the beer that first made me understand good beer really exists. Its the perfect everyday beer. A nice bitter taste with a good load of citrus flavor. There is nothing like jamming out on the guitar and sipping on this fine brew. My god I am at a loss for words!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Poured a deep copper color with a thin head and some yeast sediment. Good hoppy aroma with a floral hint. Excellent balance of hops and malt in the flavor. Smooth and a bit bitter and peppery at the end. Very good and easy to drink.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jakís Tap (Chicago). Classic pale ale hops smell, orange amber in the cup with visible carbonation and good clarity. Slightly acidic and full of softly bitter hops that fade through the finish. Nicely balanced. Good beer.

From a keg. This was fantastic. Amber with big, frothy white head. The aroma was citrus/hops and some apricot and spice. Beautiful bouquet. The texture was full and rich. Lively carbonation. A tad astringent. Flavor was wonderfully hoppy and citrusy and fresh and clean. An American pale ale classic. Wow.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Rerate: Iíve been drinking a fair amount of this out of the bottle lately. Not very impressed. Very cardboardy. Hops destroy and fruitiness is pungent but all in all there is something hidden beneath all of the hops that just isnít right.
Wow I had frogotten just how great this brew was and its not all that expensive. Itís even abottle conditioned. What a freaking deal. Copper pale color. White head that dies off. Nose is nice and fruity like any good ale. notes of pear, nectarines and amarillo hops...lots of amarillos. Nice in the mouth very round and at the same time not too overpowering. Mainly cascades and sweet malt. If I brewed at home I would want my pale to aste like this.
