This is a nicely done APA. It hits you with a great hoppy aroma, and backs it up with a good flavor. This was very solid. can8ianben (1545) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
By far my favorite beer from the sampler. Friends at our table didn’t finish their full pint of this, so I got to enjoy even more. Aroma is of fresh hops, appearance is copper with a frothy head. Tastes like a good IPA should (surprisingly labeled as just a pale ale, especially considering that it is dry hopped). Really delicious smooth bitter finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Clear golden-amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, caramel and grapefruit up top, finishing strong grapefruit. Decent bitterness but does not linger much. Medium body. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draft at the brewpub.Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Light copper pour with a fizzy white head. Hops are very present in this beer, aroma and flavor, very nice for a pale ale. Flavor lingered on the tongue for quite a bit, overall very good and very drinkable.
6 oct 2013, tap. Orange and a bit hazy. Nose is orange juice and grapefruit rind. Med body and moderately fizzy. Grapefruit rind bitterness and finish. Some caramel malt.

Beer number two on my flight at the brewpub on 11th March 2014. Comes a clear and good looking amber, white head. The aroma was leaning towards a citrus base with some toasted maltiness, as was the taste. Easy to drink and my second favourite of the eight beers I sampled while sitting in the sun outside the place with my wife and daughter. herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Dark gold pour. Floral nose with slight citrus notes. Big "C" hop bite. This is your standard big hopped up west coast ipa. DenverLogan (1214) - LA, California, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Amber color, small white head. Nice aroma of hops, with a big grapefruit hoppy and citrus flavor. Minimal sweetness and bitter finish. jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Very solid for an APA, decent hop aroma and solid flavor - however it doesn’t linger long enough. Good for a sunny day in Newport. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at NBBC. The best pale ale I have had in a while. Color was dark gold with an off white head. Aroma was nice with a good amount of citrus and flowers. Flavor was nicely balanced with flowers and citrus again in the finish. Nicely hopped for the style, and the dry hopping was not that pronounced. Sessionable and good.
