troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a large white head. Crisp hoppy aroma. Taste is quite a bit more malty, with biscuit and sweet caramel notes in there as well. Nice crisp floral hop finish, with a medium mouthfeel. Quite good.

Good everyday pale ale. Pours a nice amber hue. Light hoppy pine on the nose. Pine and bread balance on the palate, with just a bit of hop bitterness on the finish.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2007
12oz bottle, no date. Clear honey golden with a small white head, fading to a ring and a thin film rather quickly. Aroma of Cascades (sweaty and citrusy with a bit of pine), and a fair amount of sweet caramel malts. Flavor makes me happier with some brighter citrus notes and soft pine bitterness, sweetened up with some grass and caramel. Light body with light to moderate carbonation. A good APA to style. I need to enter my notes from the brewery, as I remember this being better on tap.

islay (2634) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pleasant, floral, dry, hops-dominated aroma. Buttery, fruity smell, like peaches or apricots and cream. Also a touch of pine scent. Pours a sparkling, pale gold with a lot of bubbles. Moderate to large amount of tightly laced beige head. Produces nice, thick lacing. Buttery primary taste. Light spices, pine, and lemon sourness. The flavors aren’t strong, but they are nice. Dry finish and appetizing, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth, silky texture complements the creamy taste well. Some liveliness on the palate. Capital U.S. Pale Ale is a friendly, accessible, and very pleasant APA across the board. I’m impressed!

12oz bottle courtesy of mother in law. Cirus lemon and wet malt aroma. Golden body with white head. Lemon zest flavor with moderate bitter flavor. Good refreshing beer ona 110 degree day.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Verys olid pale ale. Lots of hops and very strong.

2.7
17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle thanks to Funkybrewster. Not in great shape here. Pours a darker clear orange with a small frothy head. Soft piney and resiny caramel aroma. Flavor of some faded centennial hops, balanced caramel, doesn’t seem to be at its peak here.

3.3
arkurzynski (2406) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Pours nice golden/bronze. Aroma not overly hoppy, but above average. For my taste, not as bitter as I like in an APA, but again, decent. Like previous rater noted, background hint of toasted malt.

3.7
fidelis83 (2395) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours gold with a thin white head that has decent retention. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine, toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel, citus and cookie dough up front, then a nice toast and cereal grain comes in alon with a some pine to finish it out along with a bread dough, toast and citrus fade. Palate is fairly light and crisp with a creamy entry, off dry finish and light, spritzy carbonation. Nice pale ale, decently hoppy, but has a nice, full malt profile without being overly sweet. It has a nice, clean, crisp and refreshing palate to boot. Awesomely balanced, nice summer quencher for sure.

That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Aight, rated this really low right away, but now that it’s warmed a little bit it’s passable as just aight. Many better pale ales out there, but this is refreshifying.
