COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale brewed with the finest crystal malts. Dry hopping with Cascade hops gives this beer a floral hoppy nose and distinct hop finish.

Pours orange with a nice thick head. Hoppy aroma smells delicious with a hint of pine. A little hazy to look through. I was taken offguard by this one. I didnít expect much after trying the red ale previously. This was much much better. Flavor was hoppy and a little pine. Nice and bitter at the end. My bottle was pretty good for an American Pale Ale. I could drink this again!

Thin head, hazy orange. Light musky malt aroma. Solid body, with balanced crystal sweetness and a touch of hops. Some strange vanilla taste in there too. Ok stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Yes, this is an APA, but itís a bit out of balance with the piney hops. Thereís also a muskiness in there thatís a bit annoying. The unfiltered and hazy gold is inviting, and overall I canít complain about this one.

Grapefruit, cinnamon, flowers in the nose. Looks like a muddy orange beer with white head. Dry beer with a normal pale ale flavor, nice bitterness. Nicer pale ale than the gearyís that I just tried. Almost has a floral flavor as well. Not bad at all.

yeaup... more malt than hops. slightly cheesy, but more doughy--or doughy biscuity. a bit sweet and lemony flavor, also. hmm. itís not great! itís another decent brew. meh! Is there an APA THAT WILL STAND OUT FOR ME?! (I mean, besides Alpha King... and Burning River was pretty good--but whatís up with this style? Itís so trying to be albeit whateví)

Bottle, minimal white head, hazy golden in color, smells of hops, definite pale ale taste with bitterness throughout, not a bad beer

This pretty much sums up why I donít try many APAís anymore...they all taste alot like this. Not bad but just kinda there. Slightly bitter and...ah why even spell it out...if youíve tried more than 5 APAís you know what Iím talking about here.

middle of the road APA. definitely dryhopped with cascades, and not overly bitter or over alcoholic. nice session beer, definitely one i will drink again, but not a spectacular APA.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Hazy, orangey hue, goodly sized white head that...whoops itís gone... Aroma, mild, soapy hops, softly fruity...nuttiní much else... Taste...not much....nicely balanced, but utterly lacking in flavor...they seem to have just the right ingredients to make a beer, but shied away from enough to make it taste any good. Light bodied, insipid finish, bleh, bleh, bleh, Starts out kind of fruity, tasty, malty, then drops dead.
