Another inoffensive, drinkable, yet uninspiring bottled offering from this brewery - a fairly sturdy malt base sets up and earthy cascade flavor - high hop flavor, but low hop bitterness - some herbal, tea-like character - medium sweet - a little yeasty in the finish - peppery on the tail end - okay. mcox90 (2169) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 16, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of jbye4334. Pours a muddy orange/amber color with a 2 finger foamy head. Mildly sweet caramel aroma with a wet hop background. Moderately bodied palate with average carbonation. Flavor is grassy hops tinted with honey and caramel. Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
This is a great pale ale that goes great with dinner. Nice copper pour with a malty aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy and smooth. I would recommend this one to anyone who likes local pales or well balanced beer bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Draft. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Light lemony malty nose. Taste is light hops some citrus and a nice malt body. Decent beer. howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Typical American hop aroma, reasonable malty body. Well balanced, easy drinking session APA. Certainly nothing special.

Amber colored with a lot of floating particles. Malt aroma has some cherry and plum notes, mostly an old grain smell. Thick, malty, sweet red ale type texture and flavor... there are definitly some nut flavors hidden beneath the semi-sweet, oily cedar flavors. Buttered nuts, perhaps is more accurate. Light cedar and toffee hop finish, marginal bitterness. I prefer an APA to contain more citrus flavors and be a little more hopped, but this try is not that bad. Drinkable and tasty.

12 oz. bottle from Morgan’s. Drank on 8/17/06. Very clear, solid copper. Not really much red about it. 1 cm. creamy off white head. Drops fairly quickly to a thin layer of foam. Aroma - dominant grainy, malty, cerealy aroma. Tiny bit of sweetness, not much hops. Flavor - moderate up front bitterness. Fairly balanced in the middle, but towards bitterness. After the swallow is a dominant grainy, cerealy malt flavor - no real hop flavor. Palate - pretty light, good carb. Overall - It’s OK, but not great. I enjoy it, but for an APA I don’t get much hop character at all. Maybe more like an EPA or ESB. Good beer, just not hoppy enough for an APA. Could use a little more body too. j12601 (13458) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear golden tinged amber with a thin white head. Grain with a little hoppy background. Grainy with a bit of hops, earthy. Finishes lightly bitter. kevinator (2885) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Aroma was faint but hoppy, which one would expect from a dry-hopped beer. Nice color and clarity. Medium weight with a crisp and clean finish. Mild pale malt background with a mild hop flavor. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Poured a slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts and a decent crisp hoppiness. A solid sweet malt backbone in the taste, with a good balance of floral hops, citrusy. Mild and drinkable, with a light-medium body. Not bad.
