Dark amber with a slight haze and a medium sized, foamy head. Aroma is kind of a musty, floral scent. Flavor is earthy perfume and a bitter backbone with a smooth finish. A little different from most APA’s but not bad. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 I retried this one, and it’s pretty solid. Good balance of malt and hoppiness. Quite drinkable. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Hazy golden yellow with a medium quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, earthy hops, light skunk, mild citrus and caramel. Taste of earthy hops, light caramel and some citrus. Mild bitterness on the finish. Nothing really stood out about the beer either way. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Basic, but a step above other pale ales. IT has a slight bit of hops, and an unannoying malt bill. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
12 oz bottle from a recent trip up to Wisconsin. Pours a glowing golden orange pour, good haze, with a decent frothy bright white head that dies to a decent film, laces better than expected. A fiery sunset glow. Aromas are subtle touches of lemon cookies, crisp pale malts, bread, some grassy hops. Subtle, mellow, a touch soapy. Initial is mellow, light bodied. Gentle citrusy lemon, grass, moving into bread dough, pale malts, and faint toast. Touches of soap, the lemon grows a bit more as it warms with a light but refreshing hoppy quality. Overall, a bit bland for my liking. Finish is soapy, sweet pale malts, bread, touches of grass and mellow lemon. I guess it’s a by the book APA, with less hops than desirable. Clean and drinkable, it’s an ok APA. Lemon cookies, in particular Girl Scouts Lemonades, decent bitterness into the finish grows. A touch of cleaning product. Meh.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2007 Slightly Murky Gold Coloring. Good Head. Roasts and Hops are the Dominating Aroma and Flavors Here.. Woodsy as Well. Not Bad But Wouldn’t Drink Often.
Rerated Winter of ’07. Light Hop Aroma. Sweet Malt, Light Subtle Herbal Quality to it.. Nice Dry Hop Finish...Dryer the More you Drink...but Nice Summer Pale Ale. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2006
12oz bottle- A copper body with a not so evident off white head. An aroma of hops and fruit with a taste of hops and malt. Not bad. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Sampler flight at the brewery. Dark golden-straw colored pour, thin head, sweet nose, mild hops and some malt flavor. Ungstrup (37625) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a weird fruit note and a light touch of yeast. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol, and spices - especially coriander, and some notes of peaches. The body is watery. I guessed this as a Belgian style - though a boring one - not hoppy enough to be an APA. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Malty nose with a light whiff of aroma hops. Fairly light-bodied with a subdued malt base - slightly biscuity. Very dry with some peachy notes, The finish is quite hoppy. 171107
