Amber color with a malty aroma. Seems a little strong in flavor and alcohol perception for a pale ale, but that was a good thing. Nice smoothness to it. Would be a good session beer.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a hazy amber color with an averaged sized head. Yeast and /spicy aromas. Started off sweet and ended in a nice spicey, bitter finish. A good American Pale Ale.

Orange-copper body with substantial carbonation and sudsy white head. Spicy, fruity nose. Smells like sweet malts and berries. Sort of Trix-like. Full plummy flavor. Fruity malt character reminds me of an English pale ale. Hops make their debut midway and then come through nicely in the finish. Palate is full but a little fizzy initially. A pretty good pale ale overall. I could see this growing on me after a few more.

One of my favorite American beers since my first taste of it in 1996. A uniquely balanced aroma of hops and malt is followed by a wonderful taste. Go out of your way to try this one.

Bottle: Poured a dark red colored beer with a nice head with medium retention. Aroma is quite nice with floral hops. Taste is even nicer with a hops heavy taste leaving a quite important bitter finish. Could have profited of more spice and a bit less hops; I believe taste would have been more subtle and complex. Im still looking forward to trying more products from North Coast.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jaks Tap (Chicago). Smelled like a pale ale, very hoppy and somewhat fruity. Orange red in the cup. Flavor was bitter, nothing special, with some soft yeast notes maybe? In the finish, the bitter turned sour and acetic.

I love this beer. Well balanced in all aspects. The first time I had it I was escaping the "August in Texas" heat, hanging on the coast in northern California, so maybe Im biased. Even better at the tap room by the brewery.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Red/golden in color. Aroma of sour fruit and malted barley. The malt comes through on first sip, with a hoppy bitterness giving it a nice dry finish. One of my favorite session beers.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Attractive, if typical, grapefruity aroma of American hops. Good coppery color, somewhat lasting creamy head. Somewhat sharp hop flavors, quite bitter. Nicely done, what an APA should taste like.
