UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 This beer rocks. Bottle... hazy, amber ale with lots of yeast in the bottle. A citrusy, piney aroma with lots of caramel. Moderately bitter, citrusy flavor that’s loaded with grapefruit. Medium-bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Bitter, grassy finish. World class brew! A joy to drink!

A great beer that varies slightly throughout the year. Good malt flavor with strong hop presence. Bold but easy drinking for hopheads. Good dark orange color with small head.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2002
This beer had a nice dark amber orange color to it. It formed a nice light tan head that left some nice lace. A slight hop and malt aroma to it. The flavor had hops and malt with a sweet, but not too sweet, citrus and caramel taste. It has a medium body and finish. Not as dry of a finish as their Pride and Joy, but a good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 Had it in Cincinnati. Found it at Jungle Jim's (see Jim's web site). WoW, ZaP, ZiNg, PoW...the orangy/grapefruit hop bitter slaps you right in the taste buds and wakes them right up. Almost like a light IPA. A really good beer.

Nice maly, hop aroma. Bitterness is balanced well by the malt perfectly. A refreshing pale ale.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Nice copper hue with a frothy head. Weighty yet crisp on the tongue. Snappy hop flavors right off the bat. Resiny, piney and citrusy. Healthy amount of hoppy goodness to complement the big malt flavors. Re-Rate 6/28/02: Just tried this on tap and I was blown away; seemed better than the bottled version. The hops were amazingly pronounced... piney, zingy, and citrusy - wonderful beer! Surprising amount of malts to complement. Excellent beer.

Nice sharp hop flavor with a nice smooth malty texture to it. Very smooth to drink, even when warm. An excellent beer.

Bottle. A hop filled floral and citrus delight - exceptionally smooth. A really wonderful pale ale.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2002
Re-rate: This beer is outstanding. If you are looking for a beer that combines tasty hop bitterness with a rich malty flavor, this is it. Original: Terrific American Pale Ale - very hoppy and a bit maltier than SNPA. A pleasure to imbibe.

Nice blend of malt to hops flavor in this one. Good amber color below a little white head. Very tasty and recomended.
