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.

Clear amber color/ rocky white head. Mild plastic smell with floral hops. light/ medium body. decent tangy floral hop flavors on a lightly sweet pale malt base, mild fungal infection.

22 oz bottle. Pouras a hazy orange with a massive beige head. Nose is toast grains and earthy hops. Taste is highly carbonated iced tea and earthy hops. I think this is infected as it is way off and that would explain the massive head and excessive carbonation.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Clear light amber appearance. Thin head of foam that leaves a very light lace. The aroma is decent: the malt and hop are well balanced, nice bouquet, probably dry hopped. A higher level of oily-alcohol than expected. The malt dies quickly on the initial taste then the hop starts soft and builds to the predominant flavor in the aftertaste. Astringent and dry, this is a tasty beer but not very complex. The flavors are fairly two dimensional.

Thick, persistent head over light copper. Cascade hops meets electrical fire aroma, but in a kinda good way. Flavor is a well balanced typical APA but has a tingly, almost smoky character to it in the background. Power of suggestion? I dunno.

Thanks to Ethan for sharing this one at Pre-Sex. Admittedly, this beer was up against a tremendous amount of competition. But it still came across as average in almost every way. Faint amber pour, with medium carbonation, medium hops, medium malts, and, well, just medium. Inoffensive but unmemorable.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Thanks to Ethan via hellbilly for the sample at the sexual chocolate grand tasting! Hazy light amber pour with a frothy off white head. Citrus aroma. Pine, citrus, and maybe some rye. A little sweet on the finish

emacgee (3963) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Thanks hellbilly. Poured a cloudy amber with a creamy white head. The nose was piney, citrusy, mildly sweet, nice balance between the hop and malt but subdued overall. The flavor is piney, mild sweetness from the malt, reasonable amount of bitterness, shows some age and oxidiation.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Courtesy of Tytoanderso. Gold color with a large head. Aroma of pineapples?! Very vinous and bitter taste. Odd, and not quite my bag.

Bomber courtesy Hellbilly. Pours a light copper with a thick off white head. Nice floral hop citrus aroma. Taste is crisp clean malt and nicely balanced hop bitterness. Very easy drinking Pale Ale, very good.
