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.

Citrusy and lightly floral aroma, some tangerine and grapefruit, along with a touch of lightly toasty malt sweetness. Medium golden color, slightly hazy, with a creamy, settling head. Malty, sweet caramel and a bit of flowery perfume up front, followed by a blend of fruity, citric hop flavors. Light-medium bodied, palate is a little bubbly. Nice hoppy aftertaste.

1 litre flip top via bonus in a trade with footy! Thanks! Rudy! Pours amber with a large offwhite head and a beautiful aroma of mostly grapefruit, orange, and some caramel. Flavor is orange, caramel, and a little pine. Pretty well balanced or at least as much as it could be... Lots of carbonation in this one but it was pretty tasty overall.

Pours with a white three-fingered head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation and body. Orange-amber color, not completely clear. Very citrusy hoppy nose. Starts slightly sweet but hoppy and finishes citrusy with a bite. Surprisingly good flavor after being frozen solid.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Impressive but a bit weird. Has a tangy malt (and/or?) hop presence that I havenít really encountered before. But it works. A fine APA.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bomber. Pours a clear dark gold with some floaters and a half finger white head and spotty lacing. Nose is floral hops for the most part. Taste is malt, biscuits and earthy hops with some tart grapefruit in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Pretty good pale. I liked it better than their IPA.

(22 oz bottle). Pours almost all head just like the IPA did. Copper color with ridiculous off-white chunky head. Aroma of orange, resin, spruce. Sour is most prominent-almost no hops. WTF? This canít really be the way their Pale Ale tastes. It tates like a belgian sour. Very disappointing. Either this brewery has problems with their bottling (2/2 times Iím pouring out their beers) or they are loose with their beer styles. Either way, Iím not a fan.

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
330mL bottle. golden, translucent. bread-like frothy white head slowly diminishes leaving a nice lace. citrusy hoppy aroma is phenomenal: sour apples, grapefruit. Flavour is intense, the hops are perfect. This is a fantastic APA that I wish I could get more of.

legion242 (2168) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
Pale orange/yellow color; Head was average with nice lace; Nose was heavy on the citrus- orange, grapefruit and floral. Citrus dominates the flavors. Nice tartness through out the center of the tongue. The spiciness emerges at the 1/2 mark. A highly drinkable beer of a style I donít normally get enamored with.

Citrusy aroma. Pours yellow in color. Hoppy flavor. Full bodied beer. Pretty good.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2009
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.
