Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2005
On tap at the Buffalo Wild Wings : A dark orange appearance with minimal head. The draft version seemed to have less grapefruit and more orange and tangerine flavors going. It seemed as bitter as the bottles to me with a slightly thinner body. I thought it was just as good.

As good as this beer is in the bottle, its even better on Tap. The hoppiness and the freshness really come out. Its perhaps the best widespread Pale Ale available.

A very good pale ale, very representative of the style. Moderate ammount of both maltiness and hoppiness.

Copper appearance. Refreshing and smooth. Very hoppy and bitter. Very refreshing, fruity heavy. Amazing brew!

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 31, 2005
tap-q time in Tempe, AZ-pours a light orange hue with a small white head. biscuty, slightly piney aroma. flavors are piney, malty, nutty and some nice caramel/biscut notes in the malt profile. I think this tap version is better than the bottled due to better balance. finish is long slighly bitter and floral. a true classic apa that i have had many times and is usually my go-to beer.

This is a tepid brew... not quite my bag, but it smells great, has a uniform and consistent taste, with a light refreshing absence of aftertaste.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2005
On tap, Chimes Restaurant, Baton Rouge, La. Light copper appearance, fluffy white head, fresh sprucey and citrusy aroma. Slight nuttty taste mixed in with a bit of fruit cocktail like sweetness and an overall subtle citrus flavor that is inviting and pleasant. Smooth palate. Very dependable APA - excellent standby that you can always count on.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Bright orange with a frothy head. Previously, I had bad experiences with the draft version, but I am now convinced that the lines were not properly cleaned. The aroma is the classic grapefruit with breadcrust. There is also a slight hint of burnt toast. The taste is grapefruit with some dark bread and a slight spice of black pepper. Very nice.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2005
I’ve had the bottle version many many times and hadn’t really tried to differentiate the bottle and draft versions. Same medium yellow color, but the aroma is a bit less assertive, the palate a bit smoother and sweeter and somewhat lacking in the slightly bitter finish of the bottle version. The bottle version remains a standby, a better version IMO, and portable.
