Yep. This is a classic american pale ale. Huge cascade aroma and flavoring hops of cascade and perle blended perfectly to make this citrusy/flowery beer melt wonderfully with slighly more hop bitternes than usually found in session type ales. LOVELY.

Good and hoppy. The aftertaste is like a mouthful of flowers--mighty fine flowers, that is.

Decent Pale Ale for being something available anywhere. Bit more on the hops side but with a decent balance

Good pale ale - and consistent over the years. The price is right as well. I used to consider this expensive, but now it seems reasonable. As with all of their beers, it looks good too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Rerate Light copper appearance, fluffy white head, fresh sprucey aroma. Slight nuttty taste mixed in with a bit of fruit cocktail like sweetness. Smooth palate. Very dependable APA - excellent standly that you can always count on. Original 4 Clean, citrusy aroma. Smooth drinking - just enough hops to make it interesting. Good beer to keep a six-pack around the house with.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Pours a golden orange, with a decent sized white head that somewhat lasts, and laces quite well on the descent. Aroma is all about the cascades - floral, piney, citric...maybe a tiny hint of bready malt in the back. Flavor starts with a small bit of malt, and then come the beautiful flavors of the cascade hops, rolling all over the tongue. Medium bodied, extremely easy to drink - one of the best of the style.

smooth, fruity hoppy - a great summer cooler, and Iím sure itís quite drinkable other times of the year, as well - one of my favoite pales.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderful hoppy/tangy aroma. Dark golden amber with small foamy head that laces. Medium heavy carb w/medium body. Bit of sweetness and big on hops and bitterness. Crisp, with bitter sweet finish. I really like this APA.
