This is my second favorite beer from Stoudts, second to thier IPA. Their APA is sweet with a grapefruit aroma and citrus taste and a good balance of American Cascade hops. Not too bitter however. A terrific buy- I bought this at my local distributer on sale for 18 bucks! Canít beat that for such a good beer.

Pale Ale is not favorite types of beer. This is consistent with other decent Pale Ales. Hoppy and bitter.

Nice bold hop aroma. Well balanced hop flavor -- good bitterness. Nothing special, but a well done pale.

Nice malt character with a bold, bitter hop aftertaste but little hop flavoring...in fact, it lacks just about any flavor. Pungent cascade hop aroma accompanies a beautiful copper-red body. Slightly better than fair.

A good APA, depending on the bottle. Have had some consistency problems, but generally quite good. Isnít really special or distinctive in any way, kind of gets lost in the generic APA muddle of things.

This is my personal favorite beer of all time. Iíve never had anything better. Stoudtís makes quite a variety of great beers, and this is their crown jewel.

Not a bad beer, but nothing more than average either. Good malt character but the hops are lacking except in the nose. Good Cascade aromas, but where is the hop flavor? Sort of an English/American Pale Ale hybrid? Good copper color with no head. Somewhat disappointing overall - too much malt, not enough hops for an APA IMHO.
