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.

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 (2727) - 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.

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.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 11, 2005
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.

So we pour it in a Pernod bottle and start for New Orleans past irridescent lakes and orange gas flares, and swamps and garbabe heaps, alligators crawling around on broken bottles, neon arabesques of motels, marooned pimps scream obscenities at passing cars from islands or rubbish...

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2005
Smells of lemon, grapefruit, and pine phenols. Taste is strikingly citrus hop that slowly fades to a dull bitterness that restes on the sides and tip of the tongue. The flavor is strong, with lots of citrus (lemon, grapefruit, orange), but the taste is a little one-dimensional. I suppose I expected something more than this could have provided, and so it let me down. Mouthfel is a little thin, but not overtly watery.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2005
Copper colored and clear with a creamy thin tan head. Strong and hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, and caramel malt. One of the better ales I have ever smelled. Very delicate flavor of hops and malt that dances on the tongue and finishes clean and dry. One of the best APA’s I have ever had.

The way an IPA should be! Upfront citrusy hop aroma, nice full cloudy color, a hop flavor that is to die for. Drink and enjoy!
