Surprised at the hoppiness of this one. Has a very prevalent Cascade-ish citrusy quality to it. More pale than golden. Nothing particularly interesting, but not bad.

A nice, enjoyable APA with a solid hop presence and a floral hop nose. Malt backbone a little slight, but it still manages a great flavor and a clean, moderately bitter finish. Clear golden in color (duh...) with a medium head. A fairly standard APA.

More of a pale than a golden ale. Hoppy aroma, and the flavor followed suit. Itís pretty one-dimensional, really. Not bad, not great, just okay.

Really didnít know what to expect when i ordered this. Ale or lager?... I was left to guess. Turned out to be an ale, a pale ale in fact, that really didnít appear to be golden at all. Dark amber is more fitting. Anyway, it had a fairly strong hop odor, and a short but strong bitter hop flavor. Flavor didnít seem to linger for too long. I really didnít taste much else. Ok, but not my favorite style of beer.
