medium golden-brown color, small white head. very sweet aroma. I was impressed by how much I could actually SMELL this beer. Perhaps it was just served slightly warmer than normal, but dang... anyway... citrusy hops... aren’t cascade hops the same as what’s in Flying Dog Am. Pale Ale? I think so. You can taste the similarity. Very nice, medium-bodied, slightly fizzy mouth feel. Good stuff.

Oh hell yes, had this at the infamous Stone Lion. Amberish color, kinda deep with a decent good off white head. more malts than hops in the aroma. Has a decent flavor to it, kinda thick too as far as the malts go, not too bad, tasted pretty damn good after having a flat pitcher of pbr.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2005
(Best by the 5th week of May 05) A subtle, but spicy hop aroma rises from this beer’s moderate head and lace. The palate is malty, hoppy and dry. The nose comes out more as the beer warms and it changes from spicy and moves to floral/citrus. The finish is long clean and refreshing. I really like this beers dryness. A really nice session APA.

Very tasty pale ale. Pours a light amber in color with a thin, white foamy head. Aroma is malty with a little touch of hops. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a pleasant, mild hop bitterness. Very well balanced. A very drinkable beer overall.
