I little strong for my likings. It pours with a decent head, especially for an ale. The color is one one of those crayons in the box of 64 between orange and brown. Itís got some fruit, to give it some much needed sweetness, but I find that the hops dry the beer out.

Honestly, this beer disappeared so quickly Iím not sure I can even review it, but letís see what I remember. A: poured beautifully, a delicious-looking copperish orange color, a nice 2-finger head and instant lacing. I can tell right away itís going to be stellar, especially when I stick my nose down to get the... S: ...wonderful aroma emanating from this brew. Itís all very subtle, yet enticing at once. Some floral aroma, a nice pink grapefruit and certainly some piney smells. T: Wow. Just, wow. Seriously, this beer disappeared so quickly, the flavors are just complex enough, and just subtle enough that itís damned near chuggable. There is without a doubt a gorgeous piney overtone to the beer (from the Centennial hops?) as well as some wonderful malted undertones. Utterly delicious. I could drink this all night. M: Again, just nothing at all wrong with this beer. It feels "right" in your mouth and bigger than usual gulps are real easy, too easy in fact. D: As I just mentioned, this is an all day, all night beer. One of the most drinkable Iíve yet encountered. Even my burps taste good. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Amber in color with a small, off white head with decent lacing. The aroma is fruity with overtones of yeast and hops. The flavor is of bitter grapefruit. Creamy in texture. Very bitter but a good beer overall.

Aroma of pine, color of muddy brown. Hecent head, lots of hops (expected), a slight cereal aftertaste. Will be buying again, very tasty, goes good with a burger and fries.

Iíve had this little gift from God both in bottle and from the tap at the brewpub. Nice dark amber, wonderful hops taste with just the right amount of bitter.

Pours a nice orange color with a nice 1 1/2 finger head. The Aroma is big citrus. It smells like a west coast IPA. Little pine with a touch of a malty character. The taste is amazing!! It is IIPA flavor with a very smooth backbone. The citrus and pine hit like a nice west coast IPA. Truly amazing!

Bottle from Cutterís Way. Pours a nice amber color with a tan colored head. Aroma is citrus, pine, malt and slight sweetness. Taste is a citrus with bitterness up front with a sweet ending. A very good pale ale.

From RB definition of a Pale Ale: "...American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma. This beer nails it. Crisp grapefruit tartness and smoothness are outstanding. Very floral aroma and balanced pallet make this beer the best Pale Ale Iíve had (yet...)
