COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West coast style American Pale Ale brewed with equal portions of Pale and Vienna malts to provide lots of malt backbone and a dark straw color. The hop varietals are horizon for bittering and cascade for flavor and aroma. This brew is not for the hop impaired and is known to induce hophead hysteria.

Lost and then re-found notes from Jan/Feb of 2007. Cloudy amber-gold with a pleasing white dense head. Aroma is quite hoppy with very little malt presence. Quite quaffable and could hold its own against some of the giants of this style.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 This version of the "Point of Rocks Pale Ale" is an American Pale Ale variety and man, is it solid - very sierra nevada-esque. Pours a darker shade of gold with a white head. Plesant floral cascade hop aroma with a touch of simcoe/amarillo-like tropical fruit character. Flavor has notes of light caramel, grapefruit, pine, peach, mango, clean American ale yeast, light bread and a touch of wood. Plenty of satisfying APA bitterness in here too. Not harsh and very very drinkable. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and medium carbonation. Excellent, excellent American Pale Ale.

I liked this one! A very west coast IPA-esque EPA. From what I understand they tweaked the reciepie on this one. Maybe that why I felt like it wasn’t nearly as balanced as the other raters. Definitely some serious hops! Enjoyable!
