I had been waiting to try this beer for a long time. I found it on tap at McGregors in Rochester. The smell was excellent, hops and fruits. The taste was full and extremely balanced. There was absolutely no aftertaste. It went down extremely smooth and left me waiting for my next drink. Overall excellent APA.

12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Beautiful copper colored ale with a thick frothy head. Big piney citrusy hoppy aroma which smells like a good amount of Cascade but I could be wrong. None the less, fantasticly hopped. Smooth body with a bitter slightly dry finish. Terrific flavor with nice blend of malts and hops. A bitter pale but fantastic and nearly an IPA in my opinion. Delicate lacing. Wish I had more of this. Thanks Bunkypop!

(bottled). Dark copper, brilliantly clear. Huge, catty grapefruit and other citrus aroma. Medium-full bodied beer leads with big malt and a piney, pungent bitter finish. Smooth, lingering persistent bitterness is giant, but somehow doesn't overwhelm the malt. This is damn good beer.

I like the beer and I like the brewery. Used to not like pales but this beer changed that. Strong aroma, and flavor which are much the same. One of the best aftertastes for a pale.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Copper color, small head. Strong citrusy hopped aroma, taste is much the same. Similar to Victory and DFH IPAs but not quite as full as those, and maybe a bit more citrusy.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 This used to be a 4+ beer. They have changed the recipe I have no doubt. Not what it once was, the hop profile is diminished and lacking. It was so fruity and juicy before... Not anymore. Not even similar to it’s former glory. Still pretty decent... But I hope the original recipes returns soon.

An excellent, refreshing and hoppy pale ale. Nice orangey color, good head, excellent hop aroma and good flavor.

Clear orange color with a nice thick beige head. The aroma was wonderfully sweet and citrusy. The flavor was very sweet, malty, slightly hoppy (not as much as the aroma would make you expect), and some caramel, and great pine tones. Great thick feel...smooth on the tongue. Great APA.
