COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

This beer has a mildly assetive hop flavor that is nicely balanced by the malt and fruity yeast. Amber with a persistent white head. Pretty good but not dynamite.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Pours a 90% transparent copper with a hint of redness and a very robust and frothy white head with very attractive lacing. Aroma is of hops and barley, maybe a little sour note. Mmmm...mouthfeel is marvelous. Start is sort of sweet, which turns into a much hoppier flavor in the middle, only to have it drop off into a very mild and smoky finish. This one is decent, but I wish it had a tad bit more bite to it. Either way, a very good brew.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2003 Great brew but not my cup of ale.Malty/west coast vibe/thin.Some redeming hops and malt(honey sweet)/good quality beer I didn't care for enough.Nice amber appearance.Very smooth and better than I thought the first time around.

Nice Ipa. Very well balanced flavor. Its made with cascade hops, but they are not overpowering. It has a hop crispness to it. Copper colored. I thought it was enjoyable.

Fruity hop aroma. Copper color with a small head. Flavor is of spicy hops, just a tad too thin, but a decent pale.

slushy (28) - Niagara Falls, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Pretty nice amber color with a tiny head, okay lacing down the glass. Flowery sweet in the nose. Citrusy floral sweetness on the tongue. Just a little too thin for me. We have a good no frills Pale Ale here. One beer to have around on hot summer nights. Would love to try this ale on cask!

Seemed watered down af first, but then the hoppy finish grew more prononcued it was a good pale ale, but there was nothing unique about it.

MaBeer1972 (1290) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Bottled. Deep mohagany color, very well balanced flavor. Good hoppy edge that doesn't overpower. I am not a huge Pale Ale fan, but this one I can tollerate. Re-rate: This one is more than tollerable, it's GREAT!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Good APA, although advertised as a EPA. Nice Cascade hop nose. Malt is well balanced with American hops. Would be better with English Noble hops. The American citrusy notes lower my rating a bit.

Quite a nice beer. Aromatic and smooth and quite rich for a pale ale. Finish is mildly bitter.
