More of an IPA than an APA I would have said, but what’s in a name? Big brassy copper colour. The usual US pine resin hoppy aroma. More of the same on the palate. Rather astringent mouthfeel. Pretty good. Bottled at the London Joet gathering, January 2005.

This beer had a dark orange appearance. The flavors are mainly grapefruit and orange. It had a good malt profile as well. The aftertaste is bitter. Overall its a very good pale ale.

Hoppy aroma and hoppy flavor. Beautiful looking and easy to drink. Strong amount of hops, though never overpowering. Tasted similar to an IPA.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2005
Aroma is dominated by hoppy smell - very citrus, very pleasant. The appearance is coppery with a definite haze. I’ve even got some "chunks" in mine. The flavor is very nice: sweet, citrusy up front with a nice bitter finish - love those hops! The body is very nice, not too thick but definitely there. The carbonation is just right and the overall feel just leaves my mouth craving more. An excellent APA, one of my favorites.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2005
Clear copper color with a ring of white lace. Excellent aroma of spicy and citrusy hops (Goldings and Cascade ?) with caramel. Excellent flavor of spicy and citrusy hops with caramel and a very long lasting bitter finish reminiscent of Cascade hops. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. I agree with dirtymike, it puts a lot IPAs to shame, excellent beer. Thanks to csbosox for sending this.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2005
Amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of citrus,grapefruit,pine,orange and earthy hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, lingering from start to finish. Meaty body with a mild sweet caramel character that is balanced and covered up nicely by hops and bitterness. Agreat pale ale that puts alot of IPA’s to shame.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Fairly reddish for a pale ale. Aroma of pine, wood and a little earthy. Head is fairly thick and is around for the long haul. Flavor starts with a definite twinge of alcohol, almost scotch-like, then pine flavor comes in that blends nicely into hops aftertaste. Excellent.

hopdog (11527) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2005
Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of grapefruits, oranges and pine. Tastes of grapefruits, pine, and caramel. Nice bitter finish with a light sweet balance. Very good IPA, oh mean APA.

12 oz. bottle. Very good APA.Reminded me alot like an IPA, but there was some difference. Pours a bubbly, hazy, red/orange color with a thin white head. Good floral hoppy aroma. A lot of pine scents. Strong hoppy, refreshing flavor. Really a great cool, tasty beer.
