UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Joining the masses. A straw amber pour. Head of sparse off-white. Flavor of those delicious fruit, grain and hop. I still taste pears, with light orange rind resin. Really not different from draft. Finishes a touch tart.

Pours a nice amber color with a thin head. This beer has a strong aroma of hops. This is a smooth beer, medium body, with a quick finish. A good hoppy beer, but pretty bitter.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 My rating is low simply because this is really not my style. Far too bitter for me, not a fan of piney, chloriney tasting beers. Re-rate: I have revisited this beer, and I love it now! Perfect example of an APA. Bright clean hops abound with some very faint sweetness in the body. Downright refreshing.

This beer should get extra points for being so widely available. It should also get credit for introducing so many middle americans to craft style beer and the flavor of hops.

A nice light gold brew with a light head. Balanced flavor, a bit bitter to me but very tasty. A good pale ale.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 Effervescent and pale golden. Well carbonated. Spicy and somewhat flowery aroma. Very well balanced flavor. Not too sweet malt meets spicy turning to lingering bitter. Creamy texture that is picked up by the carbonation. Crisp, clean, refreshing, well balanced. This is the standard for american pale ales.

Very tasty. The cost was $1.25 U$S in Utah. making this the best tasting beer that I have ever had in that affordable price range. I would have liked to have tried the celebration ale, but it was not available. Oh well. This is definetly worth buying and enjoying. As a matter of fact I am going to enjoy some more of it, and some more of it, and some more of it. Excellent beer!

Rich amber color with thick head that quickly dissapears. Very citrusy aroma and piney aftertaste. The way Sierra Nevada brews their beer in the bottle is an interesting alternative that sometimes leaves a yeasty flavor and some yeast floating around in your bottle.

Nice rich colour, pleasant aroma. Quite citrussy, hoppy flavour, with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
