This was a great beer. The aroma was hoppy with a nice crisp hop scent. The color was a darker orange/reddish color with a nice white head. The flavor was very balanced with a juicy hop flavor coming through. A really great beer and one that I recommend to everyone. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2003
This is a monster of a pale ale. Very refreshing. Floral/citrus aroma with an excellent hop bite. Terrific Ohio beer. Props to alcfron. thedm (6184) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with with yeast swirls softly carbonated brown colored body. The aroma was hoppy and caramel malt. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops herbs mild spice and caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2006
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. 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

Hmmmm, pale ale. An excellent pale! Deep amber pour, thick foamy head, great balance of hops and citrus. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2003
Very hoppy with substantial maltiness (is that root beer? -- elements from the biscuit malt?). Really a very good APA, stronger, fresher, more bold than many and it ain't just the high hop level. Recommended. Thanks to the friend of Gill, Burnham and colleagues. Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Bottled: Pour resulted in a large creamy white head of foam that fell after 5 minutes to a thin long lasting layer. Beautifully clear med-dark gold color with burnished highlights. An enticing citrusy-floral hop nose took center stage while the malt aroma pretty much played a bit part. Flavor started with a fine balance of hop bitterness/sweet malt characters and lasted through to the finish. Slightly vegetal hop flavor emerged mid-palate and transformed into a pleasant grapefruit character in the aftertaste. A hint of yeasty-breadiness was evident from mid-palate to aftertaste. Medium bodied with a nicely supple texture enhanced by a gentle carbonation. A very refreshing, flavorful APA; one that I could drink with a good pizza and good company all summer day long. I would have liked a more present malt aroma though but the finely balanced bitter/sweet characters that made this brew quite easy drinking compensated nicely. Thanks Drew!

22 oz. Amber with fluffy, thick off white head. Grassy, hoppy aroma with a sweet orange twang. Sweet malts then light bitter hops. A relly nice beer I could only imagine would be fantastic on cask. Nice and hoppy. 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..
