good overall; relatively deep color and small lasting head with noticable but not overpowering hoppiness. good for drinking regularly with a nice transition as it warms. Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Nice gold color, thin white head. Slight citrus sweet scent. Easy drinking with just a small hop presence. Nothing special, but I enjoyed it. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 17, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 bottle - 3/17/05 - Pours a light amber body. The main thing I smell is citrus. As far as taste, there is a little malt (earthy), some citrus, and it’s sweet. Not complex, but easy to drink. In the finish I get a little bitter taste...not bad. It’s not outstanding, but I like it about as much as Sierra Nevada’s higher rated APA. I could drink this from time to time, and I believe I will. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours light amber, clear, with an off-white head and good bubbling from carbonation. Nose is floral and citrus hops. Flavor is nicely balanced between sweet caramel malts and crystal hops, with a bittersweet finish. Palate is actually good with a chewy cookie quality. Quite good. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Draft. Clear light amber with a nice white head. Spicey citrus hop aroma. Spicy hop flavor with some floral bits. Some malt backing. Easy to drhink. Crisp and clean.

gjolden color, mildly citirc (grapefruit, orange) flavor, some maltiness. a very middle of the road american pale ale jus10cider82 (67) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 22, 2005
(12 oz) Cap came off rather easily. Pours very cloudy amber with almost no head. Smells strongly of orange rind and grapefruit. Bit of hops and citrus flavors. I think ill stick with SNPA even though this is semi-local. henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Because I was not very careful pouring, this bottle-conditioned beer poured slightly cloudy. It is a light amber color with a medium rocky head that dissipates quickly leaving a little lacing around the edge of the glass. I detect a light caramel malt background to the primary grapefruit aroma. The flavor is slightly sweet and extremely smooth. It is initially sweet malt with a nice hop bitterness mixed in that fades to a middle of roasted nuts. The finish is long and bitter-sweet with a faint alcohol warmth.

Bottle, best by 2/20/05. Dusty amber body, frothy white head. Primarily bright, fruity aroma of grapefruit and pineapple, caramel malt in the background. Dissapointing flavor, has a weak caramel malt backbone with a correspondingly weak hop profile. Too fizzy to boot. LutzBrau (43) - iowa city, Iowa, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Ho..Hum, another middle-of-the-road pale ale. I couldnt say anything good or bad about this one. short light sweet to bitter finish, seemed to lively and a bit watery. Miller Light with a pinch more flavor.
