My favorite domestic beer. This beer has just the right balance between the sweet tasting malt and the hop bite. Just bitter enough to satisfy, but had a sweet pleasant aftertaste, that makes this quite a complex brew. Another great Smuttynose beer.

The beer pours an attractive copper red with one finger of creamy head. Nice lacing and retention. Citrusy and floral hops dominate the aroma with some underlying notes of caramel and tobacco. Juicy herbal and fruity hop bite up front with flavors of grapefruit and tart apple. The malt is warm and moderately sweet with some caramel and woody flavors. The finish is a bit yeasty with some light fruit. Medium bodied with a bit less carbonation than the average pale ale. A real treat to drink. Great flavor and aroma for a lower alcohol brew. An exceptional session ale from one of the finest breweries in the U.S.

brown beer smells like caramel. Very refreshing. The finish is very dry. A little bit too hoppy.

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.

New Holland had tons of head, Smuttynose didnít have as much. Thats ok because Smuttynose is a different style but nonetheless a very very good beer. Iíve had two of this line previously and both were outstanding. This is no exception. Of the English Style this is the 2nd best EPA Iíve had to date.

Pours a dark amber. This is a fairly hoppy beer with a good malt profile. This is a very drinkable beer.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 Not your ordinary pale! Filtered. Deep, rich color, floral nose, zesty hop flavor with a strong lemony bitterness. Very full bodied. Reminiscent of Liberty Ale - it's richer, but not as carbonated. Very good!

A fantastic pale al from a decent New England microbrew. Bold, delicious hops; rich, copper color. Very smooth upon the palate. Strong finish with memorable hops lingering. Note to self: look for more from this brewery!

Terrific brew which pours out a nice coppery color with a good-sized tan head which didnít completely leave. The taste is awesome with an overall hops and malts dominance with an undercurrent of sweet fruitiness. Finish is slightly bitter but pleasant. Looking forward to drinking more!
