Amber in color, aroma of all the hops, this is a nice IPA. Very good balance of all the hops and flavors jgb9348 (6588) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Great colour and a very large pale white head. Great hoppy smell full of the other APA characters. A defintely full flavoured beer full of hop characters. A really balanced APA which anyone should definately try! Tasted at MacGregor's on Tap in Rochester, New York. DYCSoccer17 (3714) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2003
An average Pale at best. Color was a coppery-orange with a slight yellow-tan head. Start was overpowered with ethanol flavor and never really captivated my tongue. Alcohol was noticed throughout the finish as well. I have had better, but I have also had worse. xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2003
for some reason i had remembered this as being a terrible watery beer, but upon a second tasting i was surprised with a nice pale ale--darker in color than i had expected, a deep almost amber coloring with a full hoppy nose. full of flavor and hop, a bit fruity and a bit thinner than i'd have liked, but overall quite a solid beer.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Great hoppy aroma. Beautiful coloring, but a little thin and watery tasting.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 I used to drink this all the damn time..Color is breathtaking..a golden color with subliminal red tones..dankfor20 (196) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2002
The head always sits tall, rigid, and super frothy..
Aroma is a breathtakingly cherry extacy..I still love this, after all these beerz.. Hoppiness morphs to a childhood experience of the first experience of a fruit cocktail..(lovin those lil’ cherries)..Wam Bam..I mean..this is comin from a brewpub ladies and gents..
an excellent pale ale should be an ipa with how hoppy it is but thats the way i like it Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2001
Amber, Cascade aroma; lot of bitterness; not sure if this couldn't do with some more malts.
