OK color. Good head. Overly bitter up front (and I do like hops). This is the second time I've had it. It's OK, but I don't see what everyone raves about.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2003
This one pours a clear, light amber color with a rapidly dissipating white head. It has a floral aroma of hops with a hint of malt sweetness peeking through. Full bodied with a good hop flavor that is well balanced by some malty sweetness. The finish is claen, bitter, and hoppy. A marvelous pale ale and one of my favorite beers. Highly drinkable.

A nice fruity citrusy aroma, decent head with a lingering bitterness begging for just a little more maltiness.

I was dissapointed with the flavor. Nice dark amber color. ha s a full body that tends to overpower and the after taste tends to be overly bitter.

Kinda citrusey, a little bitter, and also some sweet flavors in there too. Overall very good.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2003
This is a highly drinkable APA with a great spicy hop. The hop is more nuanced and the finish a bit drier on tap.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2003
Amber coloured. Hoppy aroma with loads of dried apricots. The flavour and aftertaste is quite fruity and bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2003 From the bottle. Nice nose. Not over the top. Amber orange hue. Enough flavor,but I'd like more. Easy on the palate, though it does stay with you. Im happy cause its in a lot of places. Draft on the west coast is always a little better.
