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.

A nice golden appearance, with a thin white head. Mainly hops on the nose, both floral and bitter. Taste was initially sweet and finished with a mix of bitter and floral hops.

Clear copper color pour with a small foamy head that leaves touches of lace. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, some caramel malt, and yeast dough. Flavor is good, though not overly complex. Pretty decent balance of malt and hops. Ovarall a higly drinkable, refreshing brew. Glad to see it in bottles!

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 14, 2003
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!!!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Pours a rich orange gold w/ full creamy froth the quickly rests to a shallow creamy pond. Aromas of big biscuits and bright citrus fruit (puppies breath). Full nectar w/ soft creamy residuals. Flavors are freshly blakened biscuts w/ a fast bitter twitch that supresses the butter. Becomes too bitter too quick. I feel robbed of the full biscut butter. Finish is citrified bitter w/ the same biscuit. This brew has no mid palate leaving a hollow sensation. Overall: a nice English style with a big hollow mid-palate.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Pours golden, small white head; pretty standard for a pale. Aroma is full of floral and citrus hops. Flavor is the same with just a hint of apricot. Very nice palate finishing a bit bitter. Great pale.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Spankin Fresh 22oz bottle. Glad t o see the boys at Sonoran bottling again. Pours a golden caramel color with a nice white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, malts, hops. Flavor is piney hops, a decent malt backbone, a touch of citrus with a nice bittering finish. Oily slick mouthfeel with decent mid-palate on this one.

Very nice APA. Great aroma, very fresh tasting, crisp, citrusy, with a nice hop bite. Best thing I've ever gotten from Microbeer Club.

Bomber from spark-diggity-dog! Thanks !... Poured into a sam adams lager glass. No head? Light orange in color. Aroma is light hops and malt. Intial taste was a little cinnamon. Minor touch of hops and malt. Light and crisp. Easy to drink, good example of what a pale ale should be. Thanks again E.

Solid, but a bit lighter straw yellow in color, an inch high head of white froth, lumpy top sits long, fading slowly leaving lace in small sheets. Makes up for the lighter color. Smell is so yummy of citrus fruits - strong grapefruit, some peach, and light lemon, quite juicy and a slight piney fatness, good , no, make that great hop nose. Wiff in, ahhh.... Taste is quite excellent, smooth, but tight of quick malts then the hops enter with super smooth grapefruit, a bit of peach and a nice airy light finish of more grapefruity sourness and a pucker of drying. Quite a decent medium body close to full and lightly textured with some creamy features in the front and finish. One hell of a great pale ale, nearly beating out some IPA's I've had. Phoenix has a winner here in my book!
