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.

A rather nice session PA. Nothing really to distinguish it, except good balance and good judgement. Itís not over hopped, nor over sweet. Modest bitterness, and a medium finish. This would be a good beer with food. Bottle, Leon Pub.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Didnít have quite the bitter bite that I look for in an American pale. Nice murky, unfiltered reddish tone. Good bitter hop aroma. Good bitter finish.

Has a murky dark golden appearance -not much of a head. Pleasant aroma, muted spruce, heavy on the malt accents. Flavor has some low level bitterness - not quite citrusy - more peach like.A little unbalanced - more malt than hops. Decent mouthfeel. Overall, a decent APA.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Nice and cloudy for those who want that unfiltered look. I did not get that usual cascade hop bite. It is a very drinkable but unremarkable APA

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2004
This is an unpretentious pale ale that hits the right notes without doing anything exciting- the body is a nice blend of floral/earthy hops and biscuity malt as is the aroma. Several APAís Iíve tried are filtered but this pours a nice cloudy orange color with a thin off-white head and abundant yeast "floaties." Toasty, earthy, and kind of "dirty," this is a quaffable beer.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Very hazy light amber with a medium diminishing frothy off white head. Aroma of pine resin, grapefruit, caramel and bread. Slightly astringent. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of caramel, bread, grapefruit, orange peel and pine. If they could clean it up a little bit and get rid of the astringency it would be pretty good. Decent.

Bottled. Nice Pale ale. Iím a sucker for cascade hops which this had plenty of.

Just didn't do it for me. Too little hop aroma. Malt overpowering or cancelling hops. Nothing to rave about.

garrison (775) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Well, I like IPA's, but this was a pretty weak, generic American version of one (Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale is better). Still, it was tasty (even if not unique).

Paid $1.19 for a 12-oz single. Cloudy, unfiltered golden-amber, with a large head, that lasts and laces. This is a nice looking pale ale!! Bittersweet citrus in the nose, with hints of a strange floral sweetness buried deep down. A nice, smooth pink grapefruit, ornage, and floral flavor. I'm impressed. A bit thin in the carbonation, but not bad. This is a really good brew. I'd definitely have this again.
