3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Iíve had this a few times before Iíve rated, so I will need to re-rate once I have a chance to sample again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Rerate: After I've downed a couple hundred of these in the past few years, it really grows on ya. I'd love to describe this beer to you, but chances are you've already had it. A splendor of beer with perfect balance and just the right amount of hops for anyone.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 You donít realize how good this APA is until you drink it. Itís aroma is not overpowering and if put side by side looks just like any other APA. Nice and hoppy.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Canít say anything that hasnít already been said. This is definitely a desert island beer. Sadly, Iíve ended up with a couple poorly handled 12-packs lately. I havenít had a GOOD one in far too long.
