The better of three most common PAís in my neck of the woods (Bass, this, and Sammy). A little darker body with a more complex malt flavoring to compliment the strong hops.

A "staple" APA in the fridge and I am glad that is so readily available. In my top 5 list of favorite pales, IPA or APA. If only I could find a bottle of "Harvest Ale" to sample! Cheers!

Very rich aroma. Hoppy taste with fruity and flowery subtleties. Very carbonated. I could drink a lot of these.

Nice hoppy flavor. Well balanced with the mild maltiness. Something I could drink a lot of on a hot summer day.

Yea, this brew has been available around here for quite a while, and this is the first time I have tried it. Lemon lime aroma that continues as you drink it, just right hoppy little bit sweet finish what a fine beer it is!

Hands down the best beer out there. I actually didnít care for the "bite" after my first bottle, but since then, I will take a Sierra Nevada any time. Canít say enough. Color, taste, aroma, it has it all. The only problem I have ever had, is the bottle strength. They seem to break very easy and then I waste a bottle of the greatest Beer ever.

Nice hops with citrus overtones. A standard among Pale Ales. Still a beer I find myself reaching for when looking for something reliable.

An American classic, my first "real" beer I remember drinking years ago. Fresh, hops, citrus. A beer to go to if you canít make up your mind and want something solid.
