COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A superb example of an American Pale Ale. The Cascade hop flavor just explodes in your mouth. Combined with the clean malt character and smooth finish, you are left utterly wanting another when your glass is empty.

Citrus, woody aroma. Cloudy copper color. Starts out sweet a little tart. Just the right amount of hops, not too bitter. Aftertaste has hints of grapefuit and pine. Smooth in the finish not too agressive. A very drinkable beer.

On tap at Pizza Port Real Ale Festival. Clear gold, almost no head at all. Seemed a bit flat, not much going on in the flavor dept here.

Noce head and decent lacing, orange in color, with notable cloudiness. Grapefruit peppery flavor a little overwhelming, but decent drink none-the-less.

Copper orange in color with a fluffy white head and a big pine hop nose. Nice balance of sweet malt backbone with lots of hops on top. I drank a ton of these pool side at my friend's place in Scottsdale. It is a very accessable APA and I really enjoyed it. Great with food or by itself.

Nothing like that first sip of a west coast american pale ale to just put you right at ease when you get home. The aroma is very pleasant with hops just attacking your nose...floral and some citrus/orange. The pour is decent with orange and amber and a tiny white head being apparent. Some definite carbonation, but not overwhelming. The flavor is full with malty back bone and a nice hop filled bitter dry ending. Some syrupy malt and orange in this beer...very rough drinking for a typical pale ale...but not necessarily a bad thing. Enjoyable...thanks for the beer mitch.

Medium orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malts, floral and grapefruit. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity. Well balanced. Really fruity for a pale ale, but its balanced by some fairly aggressive grapefruity hops. All in all, a nice taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Aftertaste is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Clear light amber, small off-white head. Aroma is mild grapefruit, some sweetness and malt. Mild grapefruit, ok malts, not much else. Pretty accessible, pleasant enough.

Another excellent beer from this establishment. Normally, brewpub pales are boring and unoriginal. It looked very nice in the glass....amber-orange with an average sized head. had the usual suspects of a pale, but it came together very well, leading to a citric, dry finish.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 A light amber color. Good hop nose and taste, with a slight citris in both. A very good pale ale. Very drinkable. Re-rate. Cask conditioned version. Still very good!!!
