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.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
Draft. Slightly hazy copper color with a white frothy head. Smells like boiling wort- tons of barley with some hoppiness. Clean malt flavor with a very subtle bitterness and some toffee notes.

swanmann (589) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 5, 2006
This belongs to Brewer’s Den, Sonora Brewing. The description listed 4.8%. Rich amber color with aromas of hops and pine. With a smooth, even palate, this should not disappoint hop-heads.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2003
This beer is a copper color with a thick cream to tan colored head. Fairly clear with a bit of chill haze when it first pours. Smells like American hops, an orange-marmalade / grapefruit aroma to it. Smells sweet from the hops as well. There is a full amount of hop flavor that seeps through as this beer passes through my mouth. Citrus flavors, lightly malty sweet, just wonderful. A fine example of a pale ale, which surpasses many of its more popular brethren pale ales. Finishes with a good hop bitterness. As the beer warms up a bit it becomes quite clear. This beer and the hops definitely remind me of orange-marmalade, yummy.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 tap-tucson beer fest WOW-thanks to squidget on this one! he said "go get some burning bird", so i did. This is a great pale ale! very balanced with an incredible aroma! very very sweet-nice hops from start to finish. re-rate-in the bottle, this is not as flavorful as on tap-a bit thin too-wonderful aroma still, but a little more straw/grassy flavor going from the bottle.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Bottle: Citrus aroma and initial flavor. Malt is apparant. Balanced. A local brew for me so I suppose I get it at or near it's best. Very good Pale Ale.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Clear copper coloured body with an orange highlight and a dense off-white head. Aroma of pure cascade hops with some malt, and a bit of a citrus twist. Medium-bodied; Nice lemoney flavour with some assertive hops. Aftertaste clean and fresh from the massive cascade hops. Almost an IPA, but a damn good refreshing APA! I got this twelve ounce bottle in a trade (Secret Santa) from bunkypop and sampled it on 26-May-2004.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2004
bottle poured a nice golden color with a heavy thick head that lasts very heavy grapefruit and citrus aroma. Very good hoppy taste with a nice tangy finish. This is a very good easy drinking beer,I would buy again

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Good hop-head drink. Pours a deep golden color with a thick white head that hangs around for most of the drink. Nice tart citric hop aroma that carries into the flavor. The carbonation adds to a "fun" mouth-feel, bitter with a mild malt flavor. Dry, crisp, tart finish.

Cask at Papago. Aroma of this beer was more like an Ipa. Real good floral and fruit aromas. Amber body with white head and lacing that left a blanket of lacing on the glass. Good citrus flavor. Smooth on the palate. An enjoyable beer.
