UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 bones paleo pale ale. medium dark caramel. tan head. combination of somewhat soggy bran/dough and caramel with bright fruit cocktail hops. caramel and maraschino cherry flavor. medium body, medium bitterness. overall lacks any major fault but suffers from being... well, boring.

Tmoney99 (10471) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Draft sample at Yellowstone under the name (My)PA IPA . Poured clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy floral sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout for this house.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Thanks to skyview for sharing. Strong citrus hop aroma, predominately grapefruit. Hazy gold color with white head. Enough malt to balance the hops, but not too sweet and very hoppy.

Guerde (1162) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2008
(growler from Skyview) This is a solid Pale Ale. Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Really nice hoppy aroma, with a lot of grapefruit peel and orange showing up. Taste is bitter, but some sweetness is there to balance it out too. The finish is a nice interplay between grain and hops. Thick mouthfeel.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
One of the best American pale ales I have had. Intense hop aroma. Very flavorful, and a full bodied hop flavor with some sweet malt. The hops are intense. Some fruit and a little pine.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Delicious. Growler courtesy of Skyview. This is one of the best pale ales I have had. A hazy golden pour with a finger thick whitish head. Citrusy hop aroma (orange or orange peel) as well as a floral aroma. The taste was great. Some tropical fruitiness as well as citrus as in the aroma. Slightly malty flavor as well but more hops than anything else. Great beer!

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Very citrusy hops that shine with tangerine and orange flavors. There is a hint of pineyness as well as some soft tropical fruits and biscuity malt. A really nice balanced APA.
