The more I drink this beer the better I like it. Great hoppy nose and dry full bodied brew. White mostly diminising head. Dry and full of flavor. A great and accessible beer. Check it out.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 rerate: upping the aroma, just love the fruitiness of this beer's aroma and flavor. previous: Three pints into the evening I switched over to on old, but overlooked of late, favorite - and it delivered. The fresh aroma and immediate impact of the hops and balanced malt reminded me again of why this beer helped shape the revolution. Delicious.

Crisp and clean with hints of fruit, one of the hoppier pales I personally have ever had. One of the better choices to be found on the supermarket shelf. Excellent beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2005 Hopped to perfection. Hoppy nose with hints of lemon zest and grapefruit. Golden amber color, decent head with a tiny whisper of sediment from the last few drops in the bottle. Front is hoppy with malt becoming apparent later. Finish is a nice bitter citrus. Available at almost any supermarket at reasonable price so there’s no excuse not to try this immediately.

Draft in SanFran: served with small diminishing head. Aroma dominated by hops. Spicy and citrus combined. Also evident in the flavor. Bittering is intermingled with mild maltiness and palatable as well. Session! I’m glad most places are starting to have at least this beer.
