illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Draft at the Flying Saucer Nashville. Pours amber with some citrus and floral aroma. Flavor of carmel malt and a hint of orange, balanced by a nice non-aggressive bitter hop profile. Finish is crisp and mildy hoppy. A little watery in the mouthfeel. This one could use a little more body, but overall, not a bad APA. I could put a six of this in the fridge for session beers as an alternative to SNPA or North Coast Red Seal.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Crisp and full of floral hops, this pale ale does not skimp on the maltiness either. A fine grainy character balances everything out. 420 has a soft pleasant palate. Even keeled, 420 is a good example of a thoughtfully brewed beer.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Aroma carries floral, orange blossom laden hops that are only slightly piney. Almost nutty caramel malt aromas as well. Color is an orange/yellow an the large head diminshes slowly. Fore is fruity and fat with bready/sweet malts. Finish is slightly hoppy, but mostly smooth malts. Very tasty brew.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2006
Copper/orange body with a slender white head. Very nice hop aroma, floral with orange and a touch of pine riding on a sweet caramel base. The two flavors, sweet and bitter, merge harmoniously in this well balanced APA. Finishes on a subtle but lingering hoppy note. Very good.

mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Not bad.. Poured a nice golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste is crisp and hoppy with just a touch of bitterness. Not a big fan of pales but this wasn’t bad. I can see why it’s their most popular beer.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Aroma of floral hops, sweet orange. Appears a crystal clear golden color, with noticeable effervescence of medium-sized bubbles, and with an orange head that dissipates. Flavor is sweet malt and grain with strong notes of orange, followed by an assertively hoppy finish. Palate is medium-light, refreshing. Overall, a very tasty brew, and a bit more than the sum of its parts.

Bosco (165) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2006
medium body, lively, long finish, medium bitterness, I got to have this beer on Jam Cruise 4 onboard a Carribbean cruise. I sampled this on day one and wound up sticking with it through most of the trip. I drank from the bottle and regret never pouring into a glass to admire it’s looks. Let’s get this one into Florida please.

Pours orangeish amber, with thin white head. Nose is spicey and floral hops with sweet malty goodness. Flavor is the nose, but on the tongue. Yummy, nothin’ great but yummy.

srauschenberg (7) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2005 does not count
Well rounded american pale ale. Average carbonation, balanced hoppy bitte flavor. Quality throughout. Those who favor the big beers will find it a bit mild flavored.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
A healthy aroma of hops introduces this beer. The glass is filled with a Venetian gold liquid tat settles under a small white head. The taste is a bitter hoppy one that lingers well.
