Nice. Dark, opaque honey color. A short head, but it sticks to the glass all the way down to the bottom. Citrus aroma is equal in strenth to the hops...odd. Perfect carbonation, almost creamy on the palate with tiny bubbles just a swirl away from a fresh head. A late, but short lived finish with a light aftertaste. Good hops balance, not overwhelming, but clear and intentional. Light malt flavor balanced out the hops and some of the citrus. The flavor definitely improved as it lost the chill from the fridge. I'd leave it out 5 minutes or so before serving for this beer to make it's best impression. Yummy.

Hoppy nose. Strong, dry hop finish without being terribly bitter. Just a tad watery. Dry orange-hoppy, pistachio notes. Nice looking mahogany-orange. Quite good.

My favorite pale ale. Perfec in almost every way. This was purchased at the brewrey in a growler and enjoyed during the Super Bowl. The most beautiful aroma, very flowery, citrusy. Perfect balance of malt and hoppy finish. Had to sniff the bottle the next morning. Again this was a growler bottled at the brewrey so freshness was peak. Nice thick head. Delicious orange/amber color. Very hppy but with a nice malty spike that made it so enjoyable I almost drove back to Munster, IN for another. So far this is my favorite pale ale.

Medium gold color. Medium head. Aroma is hoppy and malty. A medium bodied pale ale. Nice citrusy floral hops, balanced by sweet crystal malts. Great malt and hops flavors that are different and distinct, yet still well balanced. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and kind of dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. VERY nice beer.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Pours a cloudy light brown color with a small, tan colored head. Aroma is definitely citrus, with lime notable, as well as hoppy, yeasty and slightly creamy. Flavor is pretty hoppy, with just a touch of malt and sweetness, and a rather bitter finish. Overal a nicely complex pale ale. An excelent example of it's style.

This is my favorite pale ale (though it migrates at times into IPAville). The hops are bursting with grapefruit flavors and the lace is complex. One of the beers that inspires me to smell the glass afterwards. This is a hop-lover's dream. Cannot wait to try the famous dreadnaught- can anyone help?
