Pours copper/amber with a nice straw like head. Smells of pinecones, barnyard and grass. Tastes bitter with some nice floral undertones. Metallic finish.

Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Great Beer. Great Dark amber color. nice head and lacing too. Perfect everyday beer. Flavors are hoppy and bitter. Great finish too.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - AUG 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a amber color. Smells sweet, citrus, hoppy, and floral. Bitter in the mouth and finish. A bit hoppier than most pale ales, but very good. I usually hate pale ales, but I’d drink this in a second.

Heatwaves (54) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Has a great, sweet aroma -- a cross between amaretto and caramel. It tastes a bit strong and bitter for a pale ale, but the flavors mellow and blend as the beer warms up. Overall a very well crafted pale ale.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2005
It had a nice hoppy aroma, a rather pleasant citrusy malty flavor and a nice amount of carbonation to boot. I could drink a lot of this one. There is a little bitterness but not to the level I often associate with Pale Ales. The only negative is the head seems to be lacking and it seems a bit flat despite having a pleasant finish.

Tap at Ommegang, 2005.Orange, clear, thin white head. Mild hoppy fruity aroma. Carmel malty with a nice hop flavor and decent balanced bitterness. Very nice PA.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Small to medium sized fluffy light tan head. Good carbonation. Reduces to a thin foam. Light malt and hops in the aroma with a little bit of pine. Color is a slightly cloudy medium orange/amber. Darker that I expected. Flavor is kind or sharp and bitter. Little more pine and resinous hops in there with a bit of roasted malts for balance. Little dry at the finish with more bitterness. A very good pale ale.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 tried at the brewery following a tour, first time trying it and was impressed, maybe not quite as good as Great Lakes Burning River or Three Floyds Alpha King APAs, but very, very good

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 I like Pale Ale, and I like this beer. Exactly what you would expect, more hops and malt than the others, with a tart aftertaste. I will drink this again, mark my words.
