lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2007
pours a honey color with a two finger fluffy off white head. aroma is hops, malt, and a little medicine or band-aid like. has a medium body with lacing that follows the liquid and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with some orange peel and pine. has a somewhat oily mouth-feel, but the medicine/ band-aid taste is a little annoying. has a small dry hop aftertaste and i would say this is an average apa there is definitely better out there.

ABUSEDGOAT (2711) - California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Clear amber orange with a moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel, various fruits. Medium to light body, lightly bitter finish. Just like too many other APAs out there. Its well made but nothing really sticks out.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2007
A citrus aroma accompanied from metallic notes which was odd considering it was on draft. Pours gold and has nice initialy mild citrus flavor followed by a nice balancing bready maltiness. Pretty dry and crisp on the palate. Very thirst quenching. A session ale.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear golden, medium white head. Minimal pale ale aroma, some hops, smells kind of berry like. Taste is fruity, more berry and flower, light malt, bready. Finishes dry and a little bitter. Good summer beer, a little light for this style.

drawde (115) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 Thick head. Apiricot-golden color and cloudy. Sweet, light cirtus and fruit. [Tasted next to a Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale] The Poleeko is much lighter in color, and citrusy sweet in flavor. The Mirror Pond has more malt backbone and a full bodied fruity flavor.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden orange color. Head was white and reduced to a thin lasting film. Smelled of light flowery hops and malty caramel with a whiff of soy sauce. Dry on the tongue. Flavor was of biscuity malt and subdued apricot. So so.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 23, 2007
yellow color on the pour, transparent with a thin and somewhat disappointing head. Slightly hoppy aroma, mostly lighter malts and pepper. Just your average pale ale flavor,with the background citrus and bitter finish, but very subdued dry alcohol end. Good thirst quencher, nothing special by any means.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - APR 19, 2007
tap- did not care for this at all, which is surprising considering I like their other beers. Yellow in color, white head, aroma is slightly spicy, smells and tastes of alcohol and tannins, weird veggie taste as well. Not good.
