Powerfull APA. Huge head, bitter citrus hops, enough malt sweetness to try to balance. Would drink this anytime offered. Damn good APA.

A pretty mainstream, standard presentation on this widely-tried style. You could substitute it for SNPA and you wouldnt go wrong.

This American Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy, touch of malt. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and piney. This beer is hoppier and bitterer than a lot of IPA and IIPAs. It is most definitely a Pac Northwest beer. The bitterness has some staying power. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter with some staying power.

Tap @ Bardenay Eagle - Decent pale aroma, very little head. Started off with some nice hop bitterness, but fell flat on the back end in my opinion. There was some bready nuance that I just didnt jive with. Too many other great pales out there, but I wil try again in the future...

bhensonb (14475) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle (conditioned!) Impressive citrus and floral aromas. Light amber color with a frothy white head. Medium body with creamy/chewy carbonation. The flavor is hop above pale malt, lightly roasted. The finish is nicely balanced and the bitter tends to build. Its just an excellent brew.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2008
fogged golden orange hue with a huge rocky/frothy white head, sticky fresh hop nose, excellent hop body, delightful citrus notes and a mild green hop tinge to the finish. This is the 1st beer ive had from the beer valley and I have to say that Im impressed. Solid pale ale, reads like a slighted IPA, as any hardy pale should... and if you don;t believe me, drink one!

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
22 oz. bottle, from Johns MarketPlace in Portland. Pours cloudy copper color with a really large and quite creamy off-white head that diminished at a leisurely pace leaving thick lace. Mildish aroma of toasty malts with citrus and floral hops. Flavor is good, toasty malts with a bit of toffee, orange zest, spicy pine and lemon rind in the finish. Medium body, a bit oily with gentle carbonation. Overall a cut above my expectations for the brew.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Pours a tawny gold color with a tall, lasting head. Superb retention with stick, clumpy, creamy lacing. Aromas of spicey hops and malt. Medium nectar w/ good carbonation. Very dry with a leathery hop component. The finish linger dry.
