COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Untouchable does justice to the American Pale Ale, enforcing a strict balance of arresting hop flavor and a smooth maltiness that's just undercover.

jaymobrown (1649) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Untouchable indeed. Clear color. Smells like soap, weeds, and bitter orange peels. Tastes like Lemon Pledge. Artifical and sticky.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Yelloey/gold with a soapy nose. Some orange zest and cherry notes. Only a slight malt showing it's sweetness. Finish is flowery and soapy.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Pours a deep gold color with a tinge on amber, medium light tan head and thin lacing. Flavor has typical floral hops, with a touch of malt.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Medium amber hue, small head. Nice rich sweet hop aroma of grapes and grapefruit. Flavor is more like a pale ale while the aroma is a fantastic hop carnival like a top-notch IPA. Stale hop taste towards the end and a typical subdued finish could not back up the aroma.

jonas (5594) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2003
Citrus, flower and yeast aromas. Nice amber color, low head. Fruity (citrus) and dry with some pineneedle., medium bodied. Aftertaste is rather mellow.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 16, 2003
High marks for bottle design (no place to score that but possibly worth noting). Nice amber appearance, piney-citrus hops aroma. Someone may have mixed up the recipe with an IPA cuz this really smells and tastes like one; which means it doesn't work very well as an APA. As an IPA, it's mediocre. It's drinkable but I think it needs some rework.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Light amber color with a taller light beige head. Orange zest with a hint of light toffee. Initial fresh hops flavor followed by, well... more hops flavors. Somewhat sweet and floral. A real thin bitterness in the finish. Not untouchable, but not alot to embrace.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Bottle. A medium golden color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong with a touch of fruit. A bitter, dry, hoppy flavor. The malts are not balanced.

2.4
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
Hazy light orange color. Citrusy, tropical fruit aroma. Fruity bitterness in the body, onesided and uninteresting.

3.3
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2003
Orangey amber; foresty, earthy, hop-dominated aroma. Chewy crystal malt, slight lemon rind...quite bitter and vaguely medicinal.
