Nice beer. Malty for a hophead at first but it finishes with some good earthy hop taste. A good session beer, especially after a pint of Stone’s Arrogant Bastard.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 ReRate 23 Feb 2003: This is a great example of an APA. It has a hazy amber color w/ a nice, controlled, hoppy taste. This is a great session beer, or it can be used to convert BMC drinkers to real beer.

Pale orange coloured. Big cascade aroma. Very straightforward and American style pale ale.

dark burgundy in color. malt sits nicely behind the strong hop taste. robust earthy hop taste. dry citrusy finish with a beautiful lingering hop taste. Hop taste is so complex, beautiful. Bells and Great Lakes Pale come to mind. Closer to the Great Lakes in bitterness and without the fruity hop flavor of the Bells. Absolutely Outstanding. Thank you Greg!

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - APR 23, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 Full bodied, reddish color. Fruity, malty flavor matches full bodied reddish looks, while the hop bitterness finishes things off well. Top rate American pale ale.

This is a tones down version of the IPA. Different than most other pales I have tried. I like to great aroma and flavor of this beer. It has a fuller body than most pales (which I like). Malty sweet undertones. All around great beer.

Almost like a milder version of thier IPA, this beer is easier to find the malt flavor in because of the toned down hops. I like my pales a little thinner, (more like the Sierra Nevada), but this is a great runner-up, and easy to drink, one after the other.

One of the best Pale Ales I have ever tried !!!

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - FEB 27, 2002
Rich dark amber, a healthy portion of thick foam, a light hoppy aroma seemingly of the pils varieties, Hallertauer and/or Saaz. Semi-dry and clean palate with a slightly astringent finish. Like a pumped up Pils in the nose with APA color and texture.

Not a bad pale ale. Maybe too much caramel flavor in it? Hops decent. I wouldn’t turn one down if it was offered.
