Chicago trip. Tuesday 12:15. Bottle at Old Chicago by O’Hare. Amber. Brick head. Nice hop aroma. Light malt. Prominent hops. Nice APA. pkbites (947) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Pours a golden, medium copper color with a short lasting cream head and fruity aroma. Slight bitterness in the begining which fades but then returns as an aftertaste. Very curious. Light hoppyness, grassy and a hint of citrus. Alcohol content is unknown but this tastes stronger than a regular beer, but not as strong as some ales I’ve had. Very, very good, but overpriced.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Twelve ounce bottle from Point sampler pack bought at the great Sal’s Beverage World in Villa Park (suburban Chicago) Illinois. Sweet hoppy aroma, medium orange/brown color, crisp hop/citrus taste, pleasing finish. It doesn’t have enough hops to kill a small child but it’s a quite respectable effort from a regional brewer. Support the remaining regionals! 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2007
Pours to a very clean glowing bronzed colored body with a tall rocky white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is sweet and fruity. Grapefruit, pale malts, heavy flowers like tulips and lavender. The flavor is floral with huckleberry, honey, sweet pale malts, light pine. The palate is sweet like an APA (wow, I figured that all out without Ratebeer telling me). No bitterness to be found like I wanted. Heck I figured this was an IPA when I bought it. Skyview (6045) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
Happy 150th Anniversary to Stevens Point Brewery! This was the second brew featured at Cellar’s LexLarp beer tasting. From the bottle, it pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma is of medium barley malt and lot of bitter Cascade hops. Taste of very hoppy ale where I can taste more hops than malted barley. A little watery finish but very good.

bottle. a nice hoppy APA. nothing spectacular, but it’s passable. pretty much has the NW hop profile going on, not much body but a bit of bitterness. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2007
Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is of a light malts and hops. Flavor is some what caramel and a slight hop bitter finish. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2007
A very good hoppy pale ale. Not extreme but a quality hop aroma to go with the sweet crystal malts. A good balance in the taste. For the price (I have seen for $4-5/sixer) this is a very good buy and does not compromise the ingredients. badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Copper color with a medium head. Holy Cascade aroma, Batman! Lots of floral and orange in the aroma and taste. This is like, pure liquid Cascade. Not as huge and complex as Hopslam, but this is a damn fine pale ale! BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Nice floral hops. Minimal head. Dark yellow color and a very hopped body that was good, but a little watery.
