Tmoney99 (14973) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Draft at Grizzly Peak. Reddish/brown color with a medium off-white head that diminshed slowly. Good sweet hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Flavor was a good hoppy and citrus with a short finish.

3.6
Dogbrick (13777) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2007
Sample at the brewpub: This beer is a clear gold/amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing throughout. Cascade hops are easy to detect in the aroma in this one since they are the only kind. There is a touch of zesty citrus in the nose as well. Medium body with a citrusy hops flavor and a good malt base. The finish is moderately bitter hops and lingers awhile. A little one-sided at times, still a solid APA.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On tap at the Grizzly Peak Brew Pub. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toffee, grapefruit, and light pine. Tastes of caramel, oranges, and grapefruit. Smooth body with nice lacing left on the glass. Decent balance.

Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
Reddish with good lacing. Very drinkable and good bitterness, nicely malted. Very good cask ale, the winner of this session at the brewpub.Soft carbonation, good C-hop.

deyholla (12276) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipated slowly and laced nicely. Aroma had mainly citrus notes with a bit of backing pine and bread. Flavor was more malty with the citrus becoming a background, a bit more pine in the finish, and bread and grains throughout.

3.4
hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear golden ale with lots of floaties and a small, frothy, white head. Floral, estery nose with notes of fuzzy fruit, pear, orange peel, biscuit and pale/pilsener malts. Lightly sweet flavor up front, then woodsy and heavily bitter with a whisper of acidity. Medium to full-bodied and raspy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, tongue-numbingly bitter finish. This one was brewed and bottled by Jolly Pumpkin.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grass, some slight pine into a bit of caramel, biscuit, slight grainy note as well. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, biscuit into some slight caramel, toffee, slight earth into some nice orange, slight grass, finishing bitter.

3.5
AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Clear amber with a tight head. Mildly sweet pale malt aroma. Medium body. Nice sweet honey bread flavors with some mild piney hops. No off flavors, very drinkable pale here. Draft @ the brewpub

ClarkVV (6862) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2003
They aimed at a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and fell a bit short. A noble aim though. I did not find the sourness that everyone else spoke of. Nice floral aromas and strong citrus flavors characteristic of this style. It was well hopped, maybe a bit too carbonated and could use some more body, but all in all a decent unoriginal beer (Sierra Nevada gets the originality points not grizzly peak).
