UPDATED: FEB 20, 2004 A nice pale ale. I was just a touch on the watery side so I'll have to rate it a bit lower than most. I've been spoiled by some good IPA's

One of my favorites. A great amber color, crisp and stong aroma, and hints of hop and some spice. Quality tatse, mild and enjoyable aftertaste. A favorite and worth checking out.

Amber color, glorious cirtusy hopped nose, strong but well balanced hop flavor, crisp clean dry and bitter. The American Pale Ale.

On Tap. Amber color with a white head and aroma of hops and spice. This beer has a nice hoppy fullness to it. Excellent for a pale ale.

An excellent ale, the spice really became evident in the finish. The citrus was well defined.

Cutlass (51) - Galloway, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2004
I didn't read the reviews here before trying it, so I was surprised at how good it was. Full bodied, but not to the point where i would feel stuffed if I had another.

beastdog75 (363) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Slight malt flavors here, but the hops are the true showcase. Citrus, pine, and woody notes appear in the flavor and smell. Quenching dryness in the finish. Hoppiness lingers long after the beer is finished. An American classic all the way.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 This is just a great overall brew. The hops are pleasant and fruity, and the beer is pretty balanced overall. It pours a nice deep gold with a lasting, offwhite head.

a great looking micro-brew with clear amber color and nice off white head. i understand more about what they mean by full -body. this beer is full bodied....complex to explain but many spicey flavors. can't wait to try another one.
