Thanks BeerCellar2 for the trade! Pours nicely with a small head. Wonderfully drinkable, with a nice blend of malt and hops. Not too complex, nice balance, overall a damn good beer.

A thoroughly enjoyable APA. Crisp and yet with enough balance that it had character rather than just hop.

Thanks for the trade SpringsLicker, You Rock!!
Pours with a crystal golden/copper body and a downy white head. The aroma brings some notes of plum and apricot, a little tangerine, and those musty hoppy notes of Willamette. The flavor brings some oats and other assorted grains, a bit of caramel malt but certainly not a vast amount… bittersweet! Medium palate, dry, but not overly dry finish… Decent APA, but not the King Supreme for sure.

pours golden colored with little to no head. has a good hoppy smell. its not bad, but it tastes different. in fact i believe it tastes and smells like vienna sausages. this is certainly not the best APA ive ever had. not the worst either..

Nothing incredible, but definitly a tasty brew. Incredibly crisp and fresh with a somewhat bitter hoppy character. Hmmmm, wonder where the name comes from?

Nice clean golden color. Perfect head and even better taste. Hoppy aroma and aftertaste. Nice example of a pale ale.

skaughty (644) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2004 Pours golden like a thick cider with a minimal head and tiny bubbles. The spicy crispness hits the palate immediately, while the hoppy nose lingers. The bite on this beer is substantial and evenly balanced from start to finish. I've had some higher IBUs that weren't nearly as lively. I guess this beer just tastes extremely fresh.

rajendra82 (953) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pale golden brew with low to minimal carbonation and a non existent head. Taste is balanced between the spicy aromatic hops and pale malt. Medium body with a grainy and dry mouthfeel that is dead on for the style. Very tasty and drinkable, but lacks any memorable qualities. I'd order it again and again, as the freshness and drinkability put it head and shoulders above most large imports like Bass and Newcastle. Easy to find around Atlanta.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Deep golden color with a smaller, but dense head of cream colored bubbles. Heavy lace. Light grain and cookies aroma. Light earthy hopsack nose in the background. Initial grainy sweetness that carries its way through the entire quaff. Light sweet malt towards the end along with a touch of alcohol. A touch cloying as it warms. A touch too sweet and to revealing.

wpp83 (64) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Poured a golden hue with a medium coarse head which went away all too quickly. The aroma was entirely lacking, in fact I would go so far as saying that this beer had less of a scent than any beer I have ever had. Flavor was slightly hoppy with a bittery, watery after taste. The palate was light. Definately an easy beer to drink, however it lacks a level of flavor that I find appealing in a beer. Therefore I dont think I will drink that much of this brew.
