pours a nice warm amber with full white head that lingers. aroma is big hops. floral and pine with some bitter citrus and just a bit of metal. flavor is really nice and bitter hop right off the bat with a solid caramel sweet malt and then a big bite of bitter citrus hops. finishes bitter with a nice floral hop lasting a while. very good brew. metal was only on the nose, maybe my imagination. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Superb flavor profile, excellent hop aromas and flavor, nice alcohol level and plenty of malty backbone make for a very well balanced and tasty pale ale. The extra bit of alcohol kick and malt sweetness push this one above the classic standard of Sierra Nevada. Also the Northern Brewer bittering addition adds to the drinkability of this pale ale, it definitely features a smooth bitterness and a light golden caramel sweetness. Crack open a can and pour it into a glass, smash the can on your forehead and enjoy the rest. sblsimone85 (379) - USA - MAY 27, 2013
Semplicemente fantastica. Fino ad ora dicevo, birra in lattina? Bleau!! Ora: Equilibrio perfetto sentori floreali e fruttati coinvolgenti e un amaro favoloso. Stratosferica.

Can. Just new to Indiana, finally! Poured a orange amber copper. Nice white head. Good lacing. Aroma is a hoppy, citrus floral mix. Taste is combo of pine, grapefruit citrus with caramel coming thru nicely. A great IPA! revolution2718 (379) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a clear amber/orangey with a finger o head. Nose is floral hops, strong malts, biscuity, a bit grassy, a touch of citrus. Taste is comparable to nose, floral hops, very strong malt profile, bready, grassy, a bit of citrus, some sweetness, a slight bitterness on the finish. Good body. Overall maltier than I prefer in a pale , but it is well constructed and drinkable.

Can from swedish SB. Pours clear amber with a medium head. Aroma is hoppy citric and toast. Taste starts of with a hoppy kick in the teeth, soothed with a malty and not too sweet middle and finishes off with a nice and refreshing bitterness. imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Can. No pour. Hops, citrus and some pine to the nose. Flavors of hops, malt, and some citrus. Awesome beer. malkyore (377) - - FEB 15, 2014
As far as pale ales go, this is a great one. I like it a lot more than Sierra Nevada. It’s got a powerful hop bitterness, it’s pretty substantial. This is a great one happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2004 I was blown away by this little beast of a canned beer.Popped this open after the show on the 14th expecting not much(I had traded a troegs pils for it on the way into the gates of Coventry.This beer flat out rocks.The hop aromas are fresh and citrusy(I thought some ammarillos were thrown in there?)I had Alpha Kings w/ me to compare this to and this one was a tad crisper and fresher(not better though) but along the same lines.Get this beer if you can(can get it)Recomended to the fullest extent.
