Nice caramel color with good, off-white head. Creamy and smooth with just the right amount of malt and hops. A very good IPA.

Very good. Possibly my new favorite everyday kind of beer. Drinkable and refreshing, not heavy... great aftertaste.

My favorite "mass produced" and the one Iíll ask for going out. The strong hops are just enough to get your attention.

Decent. Iím not a huge pale ale fan, but Iíve had better ones than this. Strong flavor, very hoppy. I guess itís the way itís supposed to taste, thatís just not my style.

This is a pale ale that all other American pales seem to be compared to , and rightfully so. Nice color, great hoppy aroma, and well balanced hop filled flavor make this one of the nationís best.
