Amazing Pale... the hop flavor is tremendous, with just the perfect abount of bitterness on the finish. Wonderful!! TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2004
A wonderful APA with a nice floral/citrus aroma and flavor. The hoppiness really comes through from start to finish. Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2004
A good example of a west coast APA. Orangish appearance with a large head. A good hoppy flavor with some orange and lemon citrus. Finish was bitter and sour. Good, yes, very good! MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - FEB 22, 2004

An good example of an APA. I felt that it had almost that west coast bite that so many look for. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Golden, with a nice sized head. Crisp fresh hop flavor, as well as some newly mown grass ( in a good way). Fresh hop finish. Sampled at the Great Atlanta Pub Crawl, 2004. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

hazy dark yellow, whispy head, sweet citrus aroma, medium body, good fresh citrus grapefruit flavor, would be great for breakfast, lasting bitter finish

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
A fairly light pale, even for the style...looks like your everyday lager. The head is frothy and the first sip is creamy. Nothing can hide the citrus hit that follows. You can clearly tell that more than one hop variety is used, as there is no predominance of pine or citrus. This is a pretty potent (and pretty solid) APA. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2006
On tap at Max Lagers. A golden orange pour with a wispy head and light lacing. Floral and spruce aroma. Body is medium and crisp. The aroma prepares you for the flavor. Initial tastes of spicy and floral hops. Nice and bitter. Light grain body but definitely a hop dominated brew. Good one.
