3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good assertive hop aroma with some caramel malt in the background. Poured with a good cream colored head that lasted about normal time. Clear light amber colored beer. Good classic american type cascade flavor with a crisp clean bitterness. Not much caramel malt flavor as it should be in an american pale. A veer good rendition of the style.

Orangish yeller in color, this ber has an ample white head. Aroma is a mixture of sweet malts and floral hops. Easily drinkable, this brew is smooth on the palate, somewhat grassy up front, with a good hop bite on the back. Finishes drily. Good example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Relatively clear orange color body. Sweet floral hop nose. Quick orangy hop taste at first that quickly smooths itself out for a good finish. Great example of an American Pale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 Slight biscuit aroma out of the bottle, mildy floral aroma. Clear copper color. Mildly snappy hop taste with more of a citric aftertaste than flavor. Decently drinkable, but not outstanding.

Not as appetizing as hoped. The exotic aroma and bitter orange aftertaste presents an obstacle to enjoyment.

my favorite brewer with one of their best brews! a copper-brown brew with a strong off-white head. lacing is present and is a great beer to look at. the flavor is strong with hops but not overbearing. feels good to the palate. leaves a good pleasing aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a browned orange with a tall fluffy tan head. The aroma is predictable. Hops, citrus fruits, and light malts. The taste orange and lemon mixed with some pine and a hint of malt. The orange seems dominant. Very citrusy, nonetheless. The finish is bitter but not too mouth puckering. Pretty good IPA.

Hoppy, citrus aroma. the flavor is smooth with nice citrus tones (especially grapefruit). VERY drinkable. I've finally found a Troegs that I like. All the others I've tried are too "burnt caramelly" sweet.

Pours a dark golden with a nice white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with underlying caramel malts. Body is lightly sweet, very crisp and refreshing, with good hop balance. Finishes lightly bittersweet. A nice APA. Thanks urbnhautebourg!

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 Aroma of nice heady hops(cascade,liberty)and a complementing slightly biscuity malt.Pours out a copper golden w/a phat head and nice lacing.The is nice and balanced with the hops shining in the finish that lingers nicley for a bit.Awesome mouthfeel(silk)A nice pale that has an ipa hop character w/o being one.Reminiscent of SNPA but has a nice hop character of it’s own displaying some passion fruit and a nice German vibe even with all that crystal malt.Great work Troegs!
