Lots of hops but plenty of malt to back it up. Fragrant and well balanced. Good beer. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
I don’t often find much enjoyment in pale ales but this was an exception. Clear copper with a creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, biscuits. Medium body and smooth feel. Nice blend of sweetness and bitterness in the flavor. A very good beer, especially for a pale ale. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle: Copper colored pour, with a loose foamy off white head. Aroma is citrusy, with some nice malts in the background. Flavor, a good bit of citrus up front that gives way to carmelly finish. Some moderate bitterness on the finish as well. This is pretty good pale ale. Good session beer for sure. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 9, 2006
light copper color with medium sized creamy head that lasts forever. Aroma has moderate amount of citrusy hops, fairly malty, lots of caramel. Flavor has chewy malts, fair amount of citrusy hops, moderate caramel, with a decently bitter finish. A nice pale, although a bit darker and maltier than I like my pale ales. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 12, 2006
Had a bottle of this over a week ago. Nose of spice, spruce, resin, and brown sugar.
Pours a clear copper. The tall wispy head is white, mostly lasting, with great lacing. The
brew has a balanced start that quickly moves deep into the hops spectrum. Almost no
acidity. The finish is soft, toasty, and bitter. The full body is soft and dry. Highly

Bomber bottle. Poured deep amber with a moderate frothy off-white head that lasted and had some lacing. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Well balanced hoppy citrus flavor with an average bitter finish. Good brew. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2006
thanks to OhioDad for this 22 oz. bomber in a recent trade. pours a golden copper in color with a fluffy white head and lace which lasts to the bottom of the glass. piney, grapefruit aroma and a flavor to match. floral hops and some malt make their presence known on the tail end. 3rd Buckeye brew from Scott and all have been quite good!

Clear red color with a beige head. Citrus hop aroma is stronger and better than many Ipa’s. Flavor of piney hops and malt. Fairly long hoppy finsih. beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark amber and clear. Nice hoppy aroma - pine and citrus. Flavor is also very piney and citrus hoppy, with some caramel malts in the back. Kinda thin / watery - needs more malts. Decent. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2006
22oz bottle pours a dark amber/brown witha nice fluffy offwhite head that stays very well and laces the sides of the shaker on the way down. Nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit and some pine and floral hops. Beautifully hoppy for an APA. Flavor is also quite hoppy with notes of grapefruit, apricot, pine, and a good backing of caramel and biscuit malts. Nice bitter floral finish. Palate is quite smooth and creamy and easy drinking.. This is an amazing APA... Delicious..
