One of my favorite daily brews. Lightly sweet with a touch of sourness. The Cascades come through with a strong citrus/grapefruit flavor with balanced bitterness in the end.

Sweet floral aroma with malt. Clear amber colour with poor head and lacing. Strong malt hop flavour with flowers. Fizzy palate.

Bottle. Light maber color, average head. Citrus aroma. Clean, crisp hop profile with some malt notes. Cascade hops give nice citrusy spice note. A very well rounded brew.

I would say hands down the best beer Ive had. It has a good aroma, a smooth taste, and a strong, bitter finish. Nothing bad to say about this one.

Very easy to drink, not overbearing. Starts slightly malty with a dry hoppy finish. Fruity aroma and grapefruit/citrus flavors are apparant. Good daily drinker.

This is my favorite beer that is readily available. I have not found an American beer outside of brew pubs that is nearly as good.

Decent Pale ale. Overbitter if you ask me. Nice to see that it is widely available in restaurants and bars. A go-to beer along with Sam Adams when nothing else is available. Probably one of the beers that got me in to the world of beer after Coors light, back in the late eighties. Used to be one of my favorites when I was a total hophead.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2007 Poured a slightly hazy golden color - almost like apple juice, slightly darker. Head is off-white and stays around as a thin layer. Moderte hoppy scent with a hint of apples. A rich mouthfeel that has a slightly bitter clean taste with evident hops and hints of apples and grass. Nice lingering bitterness in the mouth that makes this very drinkable in mass quantities! Good for the money.

This pale ale rocks. Great summer brew that gets extra points for not being overpriced. Beautiful amber whith a big rocky head. Hops are piney and bitterness is balanced.
