remains the standard although it is getting common; easy to take for granted.

Itís the best beer I can find in every single bar I walk into. There are better things out there, but SNPA is a good beer thatís available everywhere I look. Good hops, decent bitterness, and OK body. This may be the classic APA, but others have done it better.

Without question my favorite widely available beer. (New note for re-rate: Becoming less and less a favorite as I try more beers, but still great for my frequent summertime backyard barbeques or as a session beer.)

Iím not a fan of Sierra Nevada. I find them too bitter. Nevertheless, better than your overage beer.

Oh yeah...I love these hops. Great hop flavor...before, during, and after the swallow. Really made me glad I had 5 more waiting in the fridge. Had a beautiful clear amber color white head. Just gotta go have another.

The gold standard for American pale ales.
