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.

Nice orange color with a good white head. The aroma was filled with sweet apples, tea, malt. The flavor was slightly bitter, slightly sweet...apples, tea, floral mix, malt. Very very good APA.

Draught. Crisp and hoppy aroma, kind of like Pilsner Urquell in that regard, only hoppier. Small, white head; mostly diminishing. Clear yellow in color. Relatively hoppy flavor; kind of blah otherwise. Unspectacular. Still, a good session beer and not insulting. Great, bready finish with good hops.

(bottle) Hmm... after drinking the Prohibition Ale... I was disappointed in this. It really tasted... well not much of anything. I expect I am rating this a bit higher than I should since I liked the prohibition so much and wonder if I got a bad bottle or something. This had almsot no character.

The last bottle I brought back from Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA! It only took me nearly 3 months to get through all of them. I liked the Prohibition Ale significantly more than this. This seemed like a weaker version of it. Pours a dark gold/amber color with a medium light beige head. Thin lacing and kind of bubbly. There is a pleasantly floral hops aroma. Flavor is somewhat hoppy with a mild malt presence. Body is not very rich and the finish is a little thin. Still, it was very easy to drink.

Very light aroma, but nice pour with good copper color. Decent hop to it, with a nice cream texture. Good drinkable American pale.

ARMed (603) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Crisp and refreshing. Nice hoppy mint flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Mild IPA with a nice frothy head that quickly dissolved into a coppertoned brew. Decent brew but nothing else.

Excellent APA, right amount of bitterness and hop aroma. Drank two while shovelling 20" thanks to the blizzard of 2K3 that hit NE Philadelphia.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2003
This one poured a medium to light yellowy gold color, very cloudy, with very minimal carbonation for a pale ale, and a lightly coated creamy white head which left its sloppiness on my glass here and there. The aroma is brimming with malt and citrusy goodness. The hops are very prevalent in this baby along with a peachy sweetness which sort of hides deeply in this beauty. The taste begins with a prickling light bodied feel over the mid section of the tongue, heavy on the malt, but a tad watery, then proceeds to batter the tongue in a bittering aftertaste thanks to those glorious hops. Very little carbonation, pleasant aftertaste that combines a subtle malty sweetness with a gardeny citrusness, a well rounded beer.

It's got a nice copper hue and a pleasant hop nose. It balances out well but isn't really spectacular. Would be a good beer for an outdoor event.

Amber colored, clear. Easy pale ale to drink. Great session brew! Mildly hopped, mildly malted nicely balanced. This is what I'd like to drink on a lazy summer afternoon or watching a great football game. Thanks beerguy!
