4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery. Medium amber body with a pillowy beige head that quickly dissipates into specks of foam littered about the top. Aroma of cascade hops. Flavor is great; just the right amount of hops balanced by some doughy malts. With so many brewers trying to be the most extreme, this beer is a wonderful reminder that one need not be wild to make a great beer. It is sublimely satisfying and superbly drinkable. A true winner!

Sierra Nevada aside, this is the best pale ale I’ve had in a while. The columbus hops make for a wonderful citrus flavor, which is well balanced. This beer does everything well.

Darft @ Cromwell’s Tavern. Pours a golden/copper color with a huge frothy white head. The aroma citrusy hops with some mild grassiness. Flavors are sweet clemetine oranges, with some light malts and a light, resiny hop finish. A solid APA.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Draft at Washington street Ale house: Nice red amber color. Aroma was a small amount of hops. Flavor was awesome amount of citrus and floral hops, nice bitterness to it. Good texture, pretty smooth. Over all a very enjoybale beer. I wish it wasnt served so cold, it probably would of been more enjoyable.
******UPDATE*****Just had it on draft at the brewery even better! Classic hop flavor, overall a solid beer! Thanks to all the guys at the house!

On draft at the Craft Ale House. This is the beer that got the night started at the CAH, and it was a great start. This APA really satisified and refreshed. It poured a dark golden color with a white head. The head left ample amounts of lacing around the glass. The nose was crisp with lots of hoppy notes, along with some pine, earth and grass. The body was extremely drinkable, with lots of crisp and spicy hoppy notes. The finish was rather dry and spicy. This was an extremely enjoyable APA.

On tap at the Standard Tap. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden notes and a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, light caramel and a nice grainy maltiness. Flavor of orange, floral hops, caramel malt, lightly sweet hop notes and a touch of hop bitterness. If they made a hop candy it would taste like this. One of the beer Pale ales I’ve had in some time.

Dark amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is very light with a little sweetness, malt and a little hops. Flavor is a little sweet, a little sticky, and a bit dry at the end. Not my favorite, but decent brew.

This is a very interesting beer. It is crisp and refreshing. It is also quite tasty. It has a strong malt character, but not much hops. I could really see this as a nice session ale.
