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.

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.

Pailhead (6427) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2005
Bottle: Very malty with tons of caramel, light cookie, light hop aroma. Pours a dark transparent amber with a white head that has a yellow tinge to it. Decent retention. Moderate caramel flavor with a little citrus and light hop finish. The hop flavor just seems a little off to me.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Misty orange with a big mushrooming head. The level of sediment leads me to believe this is a tad bit old. In fact, so does the drying sourness to the bite. Iíd like to try this one fresh ... I sense the incredible sense of raw bread dough to this may not be a fair rating, but thatís what I got.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours copper and hazy with a creamy white head. Some floaties are present in the glass. Smells of grass, citrus, bread and surprisingly sharp for an APA. Taste is of lemons, pepper, floral, some grapefruit. Finish is sweet caramel with some peppery notes.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 Smells hoppy and with a touch of yeast. Light orange with some amber hues. moderately cloudy. Small white head. Begins with a big full Pacif NW hops flavor with alot of warm orange alcohol tones. Has a nice clean body, medium full and ends with a dissipating flavor. A well balanced/constructed beer. Has some nice yeast/malt complexity in the finish that brings out a bitter, fuzzy sensation. Has a nice biscuity flavor as well. Great beer overall. Thanks again to Sierra Nevada which made all beers like this possible. Rerate. 2004 draught. Still a nice cascades hops flavor and a decent malt, but finish is short and seems lifeless. Weird, what's going on here? This last visit has me downgrading all of their beers.

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.

Orange gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malty, hoppy (citrus and pine) and a touch hoppy. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are bready and sweet. Hops are citrus and grapefruit. Balance is OK, but the hops and malts donít seem to mix well. The compete more than they complement. Still not a bad pale ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

SLightly cloudy dark ornage colored body. The head is slightly yellowish and tan. The aroma has pine, menthol and some plastic. The taste is grapefruit and some pine with a nice caramel touch in the back of the throat. This has enough character and body to keep it interesting.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2004
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.
