Clear deep amber, moderate bubbly head. Immediate hop nose which continues into a floral hop flavor and finish. Perhaps the first true modern American pale ale, and still one of the best.

On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Light amber colour with a nice head. Very nice hoppy aroma. Also great taste of hops and dryness. The beer ends up very smooth and tasteful.

Poured from a bottle produces a thin white head and a copper color. Malty nose with hints of tangy hops. Well balanced flavor with barley sweetness followed by great hops and a bit of citrus goodness. The finish is hoppy with some slightly sweet notes. This is a good beer with nothing excessivley unusual or overly normal.

I like this ale even more than their Steam beer. Dry finish. Frothy head and good hoppy taste.

Shared per Chuck! Thanks Chuck! Pours to a hazy orange body with a thin oily white head and nice lacing. The aroma is malted milk balls, apricots, white grapes, oranges and lemons. Kinda leafy. The flavor starts off as a nice refreshing light citrus and finishes with a huge toasted perfume malt. Oddly, however, this is not what I think of when I think APA. More of a English bitter mixed with a golden ale? Anyway, the palate is moderate at best. I had high hopes when I heard APA, but then was let down. Ah well. This is still "good", just not exceptional.

pours an orangish color w/ a nice white head fairly well laced. A big cascade hop aroma very nice and grassy hints of weak carmel and some light grain. Palate is well carbonated lightly coated in hop oil. Flavor is mostly a standard apa hop flavor fairly dry and lightly bitter even a hint of mint in the swallow. Nothing to blwo you away but a solid brew.
