Cloudy orange appereance. Wonderful hoppy(!) and fruity (citrus) aroma. Flavour has mild malts and fruits followed by an overwhelming hoppy bitter and acidic (grapes?) finish. It's not normal - and thank God for that!

Good Pale Ale. Has a nice texture and bite to it. There is plenty of hops in this bottle for a citrus flavored ale.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 The GF and I went on a tour of their brewery. For $5 you get a 12oz glass of 3 of their beers. The head was mixed with large and small bubbles. The color was medium amber dark and you could see through it. The beer was the 2nd best of their beers that we sampled. Hotstuff did not try it.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Pours with a beautiful clear deep amber body topped by a thick sustaining head that leaves lots of lace hugging the glass. Sweet and fruity (apples & grapefruit) aroma with flowery notes. Sweet and fruity (apples & lemons) hop flavor with a strong bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied, slightly oily and relatively smooth with a dry finish.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2003
UPDATED: APR 9, 2005 Hazy orange, almost red. Nice hops flavor with a citrus hint. Seems very well balanced. Goes down smooth with just the right amount of hops bite.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 Nice orangish-copper color with a strong cirtrus hop aroma. Smells like I’m sniffing my hops before I add them to my homebrews. Medium body dominated by hop flavor and semi-dry, bitter finish. Drank at room temperature which really brought out the hop aroma and flavor. Its one of my ’go to’ beers when I’m looking for something semi-lite and flavorful.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 Nice hoppiness with a delicious orange finish make this a beer worth repeated purchases...a master brew and a simply exquisite APA!

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.
