Good pine and citrus aroma that stands out . Copper color body with white head. Mild sweet malts trying to hold back the citrus hops. Dry grapefruit flavor, a joy to have. Man I have a great wife to get me these beers.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Nice amber color, deeper than some APAs, very citrusy hop bouquet, nice bitterness and hop flavor as well. Maltier than many pales as well. Slightly overrated, but nice ale nonetheless.

jeckenroth (121) - Reading, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Reddish-brown,small off white head. Smells of hops and flowers. Lgihter than expected with a watery body and medium carbonation. It finishes bitter with a hopsy tone. The hops are crisp at the begining then muted by a sweetness. Very good but not great.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Citrusy hop aroma, but it is muted. Copper/tea colored with a finger thick white head. very quaffable. Nothing revolutionary here just a good malt base followed by ample hopping that leaves a mildly sweet malty beer that finishes citrusy and grapefruit bitter. Very solid.

Draft at Rich O’s. Pours a reddish-orange tint with a tight white head. Initial taste is a little sweet, but the hops drown that out in a hurry with just the right amount of bitterness. This beer makes you want to take another look at other APAs, but is one of the best out there period.

I tried this beer after reading the posts here. I’d seen it before but stayed away because of the cheesy graphics on the label. I’ll try not to judge a beer by its label in the future. This is great beer in a style I like. Hoppy, but with enough balance. I just need to take enough starch blockers. This beer was a real treat. If you like Northwest Pale Ales or IPA’s give it a try. Can’t believe It comes from so close to home. I’m definately doin’ the brewery tour.

hotstuff (4802) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle. Small ivory head that mostly diminished, fine-medium bubbles, fair lacing, carbonated, transparent and an orange hue. Malty, hoppy, caramel, sweet, and fruity aroma. Flavor was malty, caramel, hoppy, and somewhat sweet tasting. Very tingly, hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body.

Pour is hazy bright amber with a thin dense tan head...smell is rich and sweet with citrus all over it...some mild vanilla toffee too...taste is sweet and rich with toffee and citrus sweetness followed by a mild satisfying bitterness...
