UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Poured a medium amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy...I smell fruit...banana. The best aroma of any APA that Ive had. Flavor has a decent amount of bitterness but not overpowering. Compared to other APAs I like it better than SN, Boulevard, and Bells. Even though I like IPAs better than APAs overall, I wouldnt mind to drink this. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 90% overall? Whatever. This crap tastes like grapefruit juice. I just dont get it. Why does evrybody 1like this piss? I would rather drink a coors light. Gross! I was VERY dissapointed in this. Their steam is much better. I just dont like this novelty stuff. Give me a nice Bass any day of the week. RE-RATE: My, how times have changed. I love this beer. Like a Sierra Nevada Pale, but a little better. Just goes to show how unsophisticated my palate was back then!

Cant believe I havent rated this one, especially considering its my daily drinker and a solid one at that. Flowery aroma but not too much like SN. Flavor is also more balanced than SNPA. Malty at first then finishes with slight bitterness. Theres other flavors present but Ive never been able to figure them out. Best guess is some roastiness.

Draught
Clear brown color, creamy medium-sized off-white head, lace. Flowery aromatic hoppy nose. Crisp, flowery hoppy ale. Well-balanced, good bitter aftertaste. Tasty.

I love hops and therefore love this beer. You wont get much else, but thats alright with me. A nice cloudy pour and some sweet overtones make this a personal favourite.

BOTTLE: Initial smell is fruity (bananna). Strong fruity taste with a slight hop finish. Also has a floral hint in the finish

12oz bottle...Ive been drinking this for a week, everyday...man, this is hoppy...I didnt recall it as being so massive in that direction...but this makes SNPA look like a MALTY beer! Head is lacking, but otherwise it looks yummy..smell is not so much grapefruit as I would have thought...maybe a bit light struck in my 6er this time...but the hop character seems FRESH aside from that...like my homebrew hop character...malt is just buried in hops...this is a nice lunch time or just after work beer for me, especially when I can sit on the patio and enjoy a mild sunny day.

Some spiceyness and layers to this beer. No better way to commemorate Paul Reveres ride...especially for a San Franciscan beer The beer of freedom and liberty and America. Some hoppiness and a little bit of smoke.

Golden, amber and transparent with a gorgeous meringue sitting proudly on top. I wasnt expecting that much head on it and was pleasantly surprised. Some Cascade citrus and floral features up my nostrils, but with an extra spicy twist. Good cookie malt presence, bitterness has more bite than your average pale ales, but smoother than an IPA. I really, really enjoyed this one. Proof once more that, for me at least, balance and nuance beats exaggeration and obstreperousness (my secret word for today).
