Not unlike many of the IPA’s I’ve tried lately. Moderately hoppy in both taste and aroma. It’s nice that you can find this beer just about anywhere you go.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2004 Light amber color, lively carbonation, citrus hoppy aroma, balanced medium body west coast pale, gotta love them cascade hops, an enjoyable brew when you can't find anything else.

adamlau (76) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2002
The very first beer that I enjoyed solely for its flavor. A bit more carbonated than I would prefer, but semi-bold, extra clean hoppiness more than makes up for it. Nice, very tolerable bittering at the end. Enjoyable and one of my favorite readily-available beers.

Definitely an acquired taste. Not the most aggressive pale ale I’ve had, but sufficiently hoppy to grab my attention. Good summer drinkin’.
