COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Generous amounts of fresh whole flower hops give this ale a rich, spicy flavor and aroma.

On tap. Pours cloudy copper. Aroma is caramel malts, and a citrus hop. Taste is caramel malt, with a spicy citrus hop. Light on the body. Not really that good. Left with too much hop bite and a dry bitter sour flavor.

7/28/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is sweet malt forward with caramel and some citrus hop character. Appearance is light copper, hazy, with no head. Flavor is light, with sweet malt forward, some earthiness. Low hop character, musty, possibly oxidized, with a very sour finish. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with a medium carb feel. Overall, this just has too much sourness and oxidization standing out, making this pretty tough to drink.

On tap downtown. Overal pretty average for an american pale. The cascade come through on the aroma but dont stand up well throughout the beer. Iím a hophead so this didnít cut it for me.

opaque orange, wispy white head, fresh citrus hop aroma with a light floral quality, a bit thin, lots of hop flavor leads to a long bitter finish, slightly sweet malt tries to add balance but falls short to allow the hops to be the whole show,

picking up a nice sweet grapefruit to the aroma, caramel sweetness does a better job balancing the hops

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Poured a nice ruby and copper color with a dense, off-white head that was creamy and lasting. Solid lacing. The aroma was spice, floral hops, some citrus and some roasted malt. The flavor had a lot of smoke, roasted malt and spice with floral and citrus hops making cameos. The mouthfeel was average at best and seemed almost grainy at times. Pretty nice for a microbrew APA.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Saaz hops seemed to dominate the flavor. It is a very hopped up beer but were not over powering. A slightly different take on the old pale ale theme.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
On tap at Water Street - Delafield. Poured a clear medium amber with a 1" creamy beige head. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and floral notes with pine resin and a touch of herbal hoppage.. rather faint overall. The flavor was carried by pine resin and grapefruit bitterness which paired well with the sweet caramel base.. higher bitterness with a sweet resiny finish.. tasty. Nice balance with the bitterness a little sharp at points.. a tad abrasive at the finish. This would make a solid session brew.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2007
I thought this beer was slightly floral and had a medium amount of hop bitterness. Rather refreshing, and definitely better than most APAs Iíve had. The beer had a very attractive appearance in a dimpled pint mug, with dark amber color and abundant head. Aroma was somewhat floral. Taste was slighly floral with a medium amount of dry hop bitterness (neither piney nor citrusy). Mouthfeel was dry and crisp, and not at all sticky. Pretty good. On-tap at the Water Street brewpub.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2007
From growler. Pours a nice golden color with a small off white head. Light aroma of pine and hops. Taste is slightly hoppy with a bit of a citrus touch. Finishes with a faint floral flavor.

Served from the tap. This is a particularly rich pale ale, with a dark coppery color and a nice head. The hop aroma and flavor is more assertive than other pale ales that come to mind, while the bitterness is kept in check. Mouthfeel is medium light, and I have no complaint.
