Overall an excellent ale if you are having more than one. It drinks well regardless of the season and pairs well with food or is excellent by itself. SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Copper/orange hue. Soapy hop flavor with a malt sweetness. Slightly watery. A decent APA with a standard flavor. Very drinkable. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2004
Draught, at Muggs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2004
Pale ale classic. Not amazing but ok. Enjoyed in the sun in the beer garden of Muggs ale house.
was a bit of a waste getting this at toronado when it was fresher and tastier in fort bragg a few days later. decent sweet cascade aroma, quite light with a light nuttiness and decent bitterness mjg74 (3093) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours a nice copper color. Has a really wonderful hoppy aroma. Lots a hoppy goodness, a little floral. Has alittle bit of a bitter kick. Good quality brew.

Red-ish colour. Rich aroma with notes of Cascade hops and malt(almonds). Obviously a big amount of aromahop was added since the flavour is not as funky. Still, a very nice brew. Lingering finish. shadey (2125) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Another over-hoped western brew. I poured this and was excited to taste. The sweet read beer was toped with a nice white fluffy head. But then I was smacked by the aroma of hops. Now... I do like hops, but not copious amounts in EVERY style. Kinda a rant, but hey, I get to review and this is how I feel. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2004 Amber with nice white head...smells malty and very hoppy...tastes quite hoppy and peppery...spicy bitter finish...a good APA... madsberg (11762) - Sřborg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2004
Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. White medium lasting head. Sweet, malty and hoppy aroma. Flavour is a bit watery. Some hops and fruit charachters are present. Is medium bitter in the end. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 A nice looking and smelling APA. Mellow malts and hops. Not as exciting as I expected, but pleasant nonetheless. well balanced with a nice malt and there is a little bit of spice in the finish.
