COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

12oz bottle poured clear yellow/orange color with small head. Nice hoppy aroma with some caramel. Taste was a bit watery, but a very drinkable session pale.

One of my favorites from Squatters. A nice spicy orange hoppy aroma. Flavors of hops and fruit. Better than most 4%’s.

This was a drinkable pale ale with good flavor. It was very thing on the palate but made up for it in taste. I had the 4.0 ABV version and perhaps thier normal octane version is a little better, but If i’m in a pinch this would do.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours orange\gold witha small white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, slight floral nose. The flavor is sweet, citrusy, floral, and a bitter hoppiness upfront. Good body, decent brew.

A nice APA; hopy citrus aroma. Nice look. This has some funky maltiness to go with the hops. An interesting beer with a bit too sandy/gritty finish.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
On tap at the SLC airport. Poured a deep amber with a medium cap of off-white head. Nose was just beautiful... juicy grapefruit and pine provide a hop barrage with a nice sweet base. Sweet caramel base found in the flavor department, too... with slightly stale hoppage around it (pears and grapefruit)... medium bitterness on the palate. I really enjoyed this one.

pinkzambia (1618) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Tap at SLC Airport Brewpub: Cloudy gold color with sticky lacing. It has a wonderful hoppy aroma of tangerines and pine with a matching hoppy taste. It has a dry finish and I think a great pale ale. Almost a mild IPA. Enjoyable!

hayduke (3582) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle. This one greets your nose with powerful hops and a lot of spices. Poured orange with nice head. Bitter start. Bitter finish. Mouthfeel is lively. Very unusual and different. Enjoyable to drink once you get used to the strong nose.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2006
Orange-gold, slightly hazy, with a white head. Delightful sweet floral and fruit aroma. Strong grapefruit bitterness after a hint of fruit sweetness in the taste. Very good.

Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup. light caramel breadiness. Hevy citrus aroma. Light subtle flavors of bubble gum, peach, vanilla. great dropy hopping. long lasting heavy bitter flavor. nice folks at the booth.
