This is a rerate. I had a bad experience with the bottle... I tried it on tap and it is Amazing! Nice and hoppy. Has a nice head and a super aroma, Floural and Fruity.

Good on tap. Foamy, thick head. Excellent taste of citrus (grapefruit?) and hops. This is especially pleasing to me, as most pale ales have too much hop bite for me.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2003 This is my new favorite pale ale. Bursting complex hop aroma. Citric hop flavor frames awesome toasty malt, which has a lot to it. A ton of orange, pear and apricot flavor. This is superb.

Maybe my tastes are altered from living on the west coast, but I would not describe this beer as being assertively hopped. Pleasant hop aroma and flavor, with just enough malt to give balance. Just didnt have the pungent cascade hop aroma and flavor I expect from an APA. Dont get me wrong, though, its definitely a good beer.

I like this beer. The finish is a lot like one of my favorites, WV Appalachian Ale.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2002
This beer exhibits a nice, but restrained PNW hop aroma. The carbonation is very lively, perhaps, a tad bit too much. The palate is fairly balanced, but the finish is definitely hop accented. Overall, BRPA is very enjoyable and well built.

Medium cloudy amber color. Citrus/hops not over done, fairly well balanced. Result is somewhat unique and enjoyable.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2002
On tap: Beautiful amber color and a good head. Aroma was faint, but a bar isnt exactly the best place to judge aroma. Hop bitterness balanced out with a lemon/grapefruit taste. Smooth and dry. Very enjoyable. Its a damn shame I cant get these beers here.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Pours a cloudy copper color, nice thick head of small white bubbles, not much lacing. Sweet pine grapefruit cascade, hoppy aroma. Medium body, soft and creamy mouthfeel, great hoppy citrus and caramel flavors, a great session beer, very easy to down a few, another great one from this brewery.

Lightly hazy copper color with minimal head. Wonderfully citric and resiny hop aroma foreshadows the dry, resiny flavors to follow. Grapefruit, pine sap and mild caramel flavors are what this beer is about. Malt doesnt balance out the hops, but thats just fine by me. Finish is bitter and dry. Very nice pale ale, and thanks go to PsychProf for sending it my way.
