Damn I was exepecting the earth to move...it didn’t. This is a great beer, well structured, good taste BUT I have to say I found the hop flavor to be too reminicent of dish soap. Don’t get me wrong...I LOVE hops but this seemed unbalanced to me and a little to sharp in taste. I guess for once I’m rowing against the tide of poularity this beer has. Oh well...to each their own.

pours dark orange with a foamy white head. has a nice citrusy aroma that’s not too overpowering. Wasn’t too hoppy for me like some other pale ales.not too heavy with a bitter finish.I’d buy it again for sure.

Bottled. Very aromatic, with a citrusy, floral bouquet. Pours a deep, hazy amber with a light tan, fluffy head, leaving lots of lacing inside the glass. The flavor is very well balanced, the malty notes complemented rather than overwhelmed by the hops. The finish is hoppy, but not overly bitter. A truly great American Pale Ale from a top-notch brewer.

Bottle with cousin Bryan. Thanks bud. A well balanced, full blooded pale ale. Easily one of my favorite styles and my favorite brew in that style. Not so hoppy that it gives you that sour feeling like most other pale ales.

aroma of grapes and oranges with wheat undertones. appearance: slightly hazy clear amber color with small head. Flavor is quite complex with lots of orange rind bitterness, ending slightly sweet but hoppy. smooth and a little tangy.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 This is really unfortunate. The bottle was bad. Full of brown floaties. It looked like it came out of a garbage disposal. I have to murder this on the ratings until I get a decent bottle. Rerate. Extremly fresh. Very hoppy. Decent APA but over rated.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours a perfect amber, slightly hazed, and an adequate small head. Aroma is sweet and truly caramel, with fresh strong grapefruit hop nose. Smells like delicious bite size hop candy (if it existed). Also sweet glazed doughnut in the aroma. Flavor is great light sweet with strong woody hop balance. Excellent representation of the wonder that is the hop. Just delicious. Flavor lasts. Highly drinkable.

Wonderful lively citrus and floral hops aroma. Thick head. Taste is top notch. This is soooo good. So smooth I could keep drinking these all night. Even better as it warms. Nice hoppy finish which sticks with you. Thanks wawood for this special brew!

Poured an orange amber with a medium size off white lacing head. Aroma is orange peel, pine and some grapefruit. Flavor is orange with a nice hop and malt balance. Had this right after Dreadnaught and it was very similar just slightly stepped down. But you can tell they are using the same ingredients.
