COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This top fermenting amber-colored ale is brewed using generous amounts of malt and kettle hops. The trademark of this ale is its beautiful hop bouquet and taste that comes from a liberal dry hopping of the highest grade Cascade hops during the secondary fermentation. The malt firmness of this ale comes from the perfect mixture of two-row malted barley, carapils, and caramel specialty malts. The ale has an original gravity of 1060 and is fermented at 65 degrees farenheight which imparts the classic ale fruitiness to the brew.

Draught at Sheffields, Chicago
Hazy light amber color. An ordinary APA, quite dry and strongly hopped, not much body. Unfortunately, it’s spoiled (apparently, a problem with the keg).

bhensonb (15079) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Light citrus hop aroma with a little pale malt. Light amber color with a white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is very citrus hop (not grapefruit) with caramel backing. It’s typically ale fruity. The finish is fairly dry, and nicely, florally bitter. Wholly unexpectedly excellent.

3.1
Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle - Nice mellow hop orange nose with a bit of caramel sweetness. Pale clear gold with a minimal head. Although the hops are there, the caramel and malts are overwhelming. If you prefer a malt forward ale with some hops this is what you are looking for, I prefer it the other way around. I also get a bit of booze at the finish.
