Clear brilliant amber body with a tall dense manila head. Glass lacing is excellent. The aroma exhudes that Legend house character, light butter, citrus hops, bready malt and wafts of caramel. The falavor is even more full of the house character. Again lightly buttery, crisp citrus hops, and a good dose of malt. Comes together very nicely. The body is bitter throughout, with a medium crisp finsih. Another real winner from this great brewer! jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Beautiful clear copper amber with a THICK off-white head. Medium strength hoppy/pine aroma. Whoah! the taste is a strong blast of bitter grapefruit hoppiness with an alcohol kick, tons of malt and notes of caramel, pine and light buttery-ness. Perfect level of sweetness with a lasting bitter grapefruit rind aftertaste. I didn’t pick up any of the trademark Legend sourness in this one. Very full, round, creamy and velvety smooth on the palate with pefect carbonation. Lacing hangs on the glass like puffy clouds. Has a prominent head that’s not going anywhere - just pefect to look at. One of the best APAs I’ve ever had. Loved it! Bamaboy1975 (248) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Poured one and a half bottles into an imperial nonic a clear rich copper with a large sticky white head that held like glue to the glass leaving a full ringe of lave as it settled into a frothy mass.Leafy hops and lightly toasted bread in the nose,not much sweetness.Very balanced on the palate with minty/leafy hops mixed with a slightly sweet and toasted bready malt base,a tinge of brown sugar wich was a bit odd came into play the finish as well.A pretty solid pale,not as hopped as many APA's but it has nice flavors.

Aroma is piney, a little citrusy. Hazey orange pour with a good off white head.
Lemony malts with a nice bitter finish. I would buy this again....now if only Legend made enough to distribute further North....hmm... MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Cask from capital ale in Innsbrooke. Big hoppy aroma with a substantial hop flavor. Good malt backbone to go with it. Not dominated by either, although the majority goes to the hops. Nice color, made for an enjoyable beer although next time I’d like to have it colder.

Always open to trying new legends... my favorite local brewery. Aroma of lemon hops. Nice lemon citrus hop flavor. Always open to a great hoppy brew like this. MilkmanDan (1942) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Pretty stuff, shining clear copper with a really impressive thick head, great lasting character. Nose is lightly citric and quite buttery, fruity and perfumed. Quite bitter, sharp and hoppy. Not particulary citric, hops mostly assert themselves as pure bitterness. Sticky malts are there, but could be a bit sweeter for balance, lightly buttery but begs for some more caramel sweetness to balance stuff out. As with seemingly all Legend beers, great mouthfeel, very full, creamy, and sticky. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle via The Beer God (I believe): Pours a coppery hue (not very pale like really) with an initial large foamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of both piney and floral hops, light grapefruit, biscuity and toasted malting, and earthy esters. The taste starts bitter with a nice combonation of old school British and new school American hop profiles. A good amount of malt background and sharp citric notes as well. A touch of pepper and clove to make things interesting. The feel is part sticky and part sharp, a nice balance and refreshing. Shoot, I almost drank it all before I could in words what I thought of this beer. A darn nice offering. YummY! radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2006
22 oz. Bottle. Could it be that my beer is fresh (as it only is traveling around 75 miles to get here), and thus is kept cool like the bottle says throughout the trip? Very hoppy flavor, citrus aroma. Not too overpowering, quite nice. Emeister84 (2580) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Aromas of toast, pine, and citrus fruit. Clear orange with a lasting, small, white head. Dry and bitter. Light-medium body, crisp and clean, with a great, clean, hoppy finish.
