Poured into a tulip with very little head. Smooth drinking, easy on the palate. Definite citrus flavors, orange. I liked it a lot and would drink it again...and again....and again.

12oz bottle. Clear, light golden color. Huge fluffy light tan head, you could lick the foam from the top of the glass and convince people it is a new form of dining. Great lace. Aroma has a hop earthiness along with a hint of citrus hop. Very light but still very obvious. A touch of malt that reminds me of the smells from first time you walk into a small craft brewery. A malt that is light, fluffy, and pure heaven. Tastes like an intensely fresh beer. Very light bodied, smooth, very drinkable. Exceptionally sessionable. Smooth malts with a hint of honey and the freshest barley malt. So fresh. Crisp hop bitterness imitates taking an autumn hike through your favorite patch of forest. For some reason the taste takes me back to when I was a little kid wandering through the woods. Exceptionally sessionable. So well balanced, light finish, Creamy texture. Superb. This Ale truly is Extraordinary. I am very proud to have rated it. I loved it!
MY 100th American Pale Ale RATING.

Aroma is heavenly. Golden caramel malt. This beer pours and looks great too. Extremely well balanced. Nice hop presence typical in American pales. However the malt was a notch or two heavier than any other apa I’ve come accross. Crisp and clean at the finish. One of my new favorites.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle Pours a hazy yellow amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is of spruce and citrus, with a touch of nut malts. Has a medium body with a very smooth taste. Moderate bitter and acid, light sweetness. This is a very drinkable beer. I love this one. Might have to get it for the kegerator.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Bottle (via BeerBeast): Outstanding!!!!! Just a fabulous beer. Aroma is soft and delicate, taste is full yet not overpower ing with any one thing. i kept thinking the taste was malts, no wait hops, nevermind malts (so a tad more malts than hops), so balanced and good!! The best beer I’ve had in a long while, especially when you consider its one of those underrated APAs, its outstanding!!!

Pours a light golden with a large foam head that dissipates after a minute. Smells of citric hops and bready malt. Taste a little of fruit like orange than the hops hit. Not so strong the bready malt more dominates the taste and leaves a dry bitter finish. Nothing to strong or special just a good solid beer from Southern Tier.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a twelve ounce bottle - Pours a reddish-amber color with a tall white head and piney aroma. Tastewise, I like it (very Sierra Nevadaesque) but it’s a bit heavy on the evergreen flavors.
