UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 Bottle: Medium dark amber with a thin white head. Medium bodied. Aroma: sweet caramel, malts, pine, mild spicy floral hops. Very nice full flavor. Caramel, sweet malts start things out with the floral, spicy, and grapefruit hops and a nice earthy tone balance things out. Smooth & crisp. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Sweet, hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with a soft mouthfeel and a bit bitter. Not goin crazy over it, but can;t complain with this one. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2005
A mate brought this fine American Pale Ale back from a trip to Washington - thanks Gordo. Bronze colour, short tan head. Aroma has classic grapefruity hops, Juicy Fruit chewing gum and toffee characters. Smooth bodied and warming, with a tart, dry finish. Rich, raisiny middle, with some caramel. Very good indeed.

This is one juicy hoppy pale ale! Starts with a floral citrus hop filled sweet malty nose. Thick sweet malt flavors accented with generous orange/grapefruit juice and woody bitterness. I kept thinking that the hops were going to pull ahead and veer this towards IPA territory, but the malts continued to bring it all back into balance with some caramel/toffee sweet smoothness. This is worth seeking out. My bottle was bottled August 12 and I bought it on 9/28/2004. JCW (1279) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Well made Pale ale. Copper color, pours with a froth white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is slightly citrus and grassy and malty sweet. Flavor is a balance mix of tart and sweetness. Dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This pours a rich, clear amber color with a two-fingered white head. The aroma is of caramel malts topped with floral and herbal hops. The flavor is a sweet caramel backbone with solid citric, floral, and earthy hoppings. It finishes on a sweet malt note with a dollop of hop bitterness.Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2005

Nice foamy pour. Cloudy yellow qppearance. Hop aroma is citrus. Begins malty, then Bitter grapefruit taste kicks in. Other fruit lurking in background. Hard carbonation. Fresh and drinkable. Refreshes. Lace remains in glass. Thanks for sharing, Radek. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Amber brown color, slightly cloudy, with small off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel and malt, hint of maple syrup. Flavor is decently bitter, with a roasted barley undertone, crisp and clean. This is an interesting brew, not your typical pale ale. It has its share of bittering hops, but it has almost no hops in the aroma at all. The aroma is more like a scotch ale, but the flavor is like a rich ESB. I was a skeptic when I saw the twist off cap, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

This is my 100th beer so I decided to have a Virginia beer. This is an excellent Pale Ale. The creamy head and coppery color were very inviting. The flavors were of grapefruity hops. The finish is slightly bitter but smooth. I have had two other Pale Ales under different names New River and MojackBay. This is one of the better Pale Ales that I have tasted. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2005
I can mention the pale amber body blah blah blah but I won’t. This is a solid pale ale perfectly balanced, with a unique hop profile. A wonderfully pleasant beer to drink.
