Smooth and refreshing? Yes. This is blowaway! My 16th beer at beerfest. Wish I tried it earlier in the year. BillKismet (4057) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Bronze amber with a light hopped head. Medley of hops and caramel malt and twinge of fruitiness and old shoe.Flavor branches consistently from flavor. Hops, caramel malt and some fruitiness. More similar to a red/ESB than an APA in my opinion. Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Strong taste for a pale. You can taste the quality of the hops. Not a lot of citrus or sweetness which is a nice change of pace for an ale this bitter. Very drinkable - I love drinking from a can again! BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Always a treat. Amber with nice white head. Citrus hop aroma. Creamy and soft on the tongue with hops following close behind to spice things up. Dry and citrusy flavor. Nice and clean. demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2008
12 oz can: Aroma had a nice grassy/hoppy aroma, citrus, light caramel malt notes, and that’s about it. Poured a golden/ lightly amber pour with a fluffy white head that diminishes into a soapy white film. Taste is almost chewy. Hops and a melding of flvors makes this brew really interesting to me. Nicley carbonated and has a nice mouthfeel. Overall, I like this stuff. Would like it more if I could get it regularly in Michigan. Cheers!!

Nice find, thanks to BFC. Very nice example of what a Pale Ale should be. Nice yellow color. Armoa is copper and hops. Flavor is nice and bitter, with a tart, dry finish. Solid malt backbone allows the hops to shine. Different hop flavors swirl around and come in and out. ABV is perfect for this one. All around great taste, and very refreshing. Perfect fishing beer! carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2008
V - amber color, refreshing for what’s termed a pale ale.sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2008
A - somewhat hoppy aroma with some hefe type elements
T - hoppy with some more malts in the taste
P - much more like an IPA.
Draft at Mad Mex (Monroeville). Pours a medium amber, no real head to speak of. Aroma is semi-sweet, hoppy. Flavor is a nice, mild hop profile some touches of floral and pine. AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Pours a very nice dark amber in color, with a nice two inches of pillowy head. Very hoppy on the nose, the smell is very inviting and is a great start. Taste is very hoppy, but much more balanced than the nose lets on. Good hop bitterness, but enough malt to keep it together. This is a very easy drinking, solid beer.

Golden orange with a fluffy offwhite head. Cant wait for this beer from a can. Citrusy hoppy and sweet malt aromas. bursting with flavor! pale malt and awesomely hoppy, little bit of bitterness on the tongue. Very bold and flavorful APA, extremely enjoyable!
