Malty fruit aroma with some caramel. Fruity and with both malts and hops. But it could have had more body... omhper (25948) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled. Clear orange. Sweet and caramelly. A light dose of hops. Some crystal malt and toffee, but not much else. Not an attention grabber. iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours an amber colour with a medium head. Light malt aroma with some strange citrus. Flavour of light malt and citrus. Not a bad beer but I was expecting more. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 20, 2004
bottled: this tasted exactly like the ipa with a slight less bitter punch of the same hops used in the ipa....they have no real flavor except bitter and twingy and poor. Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 10, 2004
I was disappointed in this beer. I was craving a rich, thick American Pale when I went out to Nevada, like my beloved Great Lakes Burning River, or the delicious Alpha King, but alas all I got was an orange/amber colored, thin tasting shell of an APA. Quite drinkable but not what I was looking for.

Pours a sort of orange color. Has a sweet fruity aroma, kind of like apricots. Not a whole lot of flavor going on. Fairly bland beer. mribm (463) - Ocala, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2004
This was a very drinkable beer. There was nothing outstanding about it, but it went down really easy with a sweet finish and the desire to take another drink. This would make a great session beer as the description states. From reading the other reviews, it’s hard to believe we were drinking the same beer, but I would buy this again as a session beer. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2004
dull, dull and dull. light and inconsequential, disturbing fluoro yellow tinge, dishwashing detergent aroma and flavour JFGrind (2074) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Based on the other beers from North Coast I expected more from this APA. Watery, little carbonation or aroma. If they were going for a session beer maybe it should of been an English Pale Ale and not an APA. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Honey colored body and minimal carbonation. Aroma of buttery diacetyl and a hint of citrus. Flavor is better with some prominent malts and spicy hops. Medium body. Very standard and unexceptional overall.
