UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! Beautiful orange color, and an in-your-face hop flavor. The palate is pleasant, but a bit long-lasting. I'd definitely drink it again.

If you could grill a beer like a burger this one would have that little crispiness that's just this side of well-done.

This is one of my favorite beers. It is a well balanced pale ale. It is appropriate in body feel and carbonation for this style. I love the smell of this beer, as well as the fact that it is a "real" ale with yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Brew Master must have been drunk when he approved this one. Bad beer. Surprised to read positive ratings from others. Might even throw out the rest of it. Disappointed.

My standard to judge other APAs by. Very full hop flavor. Crisp finish. Lingering after taste.

Decent light, somewhat hoppy beer. Each time I sample this, it gets better and better....Its the definitive american pale!

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 A classic; the standard in American style pale ale. Heavy on the cascade hops if you like that you will love this beer

Pale amber color. Nice hop/malt balance in the nose, citrus fruit. Begins malt sweet then all grapefruity hops. Finishes lond dry and crisp. Excellent Pale!
