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

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Delafield, Wisconsin. Hazy, dark yellow pour, citrusy hoppy nose and flavor, excellent!

On tap at Water Street Brewery in Milwaukee. Pours a rich amber color with a nice white head that produced a nice amount of lacing. Nice to see "beer clean" glasses at a bar. The aroma is your typical citrus hop and a touch of malt to back it up. Flavor was nice and easy. It was hoppy enough to make me happy and malty enough to balance out the beer. The flavor was a nice melding of citrus hops and caramel malts. This was a very easy to drink bee. The only complaint I have, not a big one, was that it seemed a little safe. in a world full of outstanding Pale Ales, I think sometimes you should try to stand out a bit, this was just a little safe...but good.

Hazy brown-amber color. Lemon zest and orange peel in the aroma along with some light caramel-toffee malt. Fresh, hoppy taste fronted by the same hops, followed by bready, lively caramel malt. Compared the other crap I had there, this stuff is great!

This one had a clear amber color with a semi-long lasting head. The first part of the taste was a kind of caramel malt with hints of toffee as others have mentioned. The hops were high alpha in taste as I would expect and came on strong, but not too strong at the finish, with maybe a hint more malt. Itís a winner.

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.

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.

A very welcomed change for my taste buds after trying their Black Lager. This one is very cloudy - a deep orangish-brownish haze. Smelled of oranges and spice, with a slight wiff of banannas. Beer had a great spicy bite with some strong hops to give it a great finish. As far as ales go, I liked this one a lot.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Lasting white head, slightly cloudy bright reddish amber. Nice fresh grapefruit in nose, and taste. Weird pineapple lifesavor taste in there. Good PA, but not fond of the seemingly sweet adjunct.

Deep copper, topped with a thin, off-white film that left nice bits of lace. Citrus aroma, more orangey but hints of grapefruit. Sweet & malty to start, honey and caramel with a nice hoppy, citric ending.

Pours hazy yellow/orange with white head, aroma is nice pine, caramel, touch of citrus. Taste up front is bitter pine, leading into sweet citrus and caramel, finishing nice and bitter. Nice surprisingly hoppy pale ale!
