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.

Capa (3250) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Pours a nice golden red color with minimal head. Aroma is of hops and citrus along with a little grass and sweetness. Tastes hoppy and citrus with a nice bitter finish. A great Pale Ale.

Nice dark golden color and good head. Hoppy, but not overdone. Well balanced. A classic.

Bottle. Pours a fine haze with tiny streams of carbonation. Light copper looks like strong iced tea. Floral aroma with small pine notes and hints that a sweet taste will follow. It really doesn’t and I really can’t find much here. Very faint sugar comes with mostly bready bitterness. A dry mouthfeel fades to a nutty aftertaste. I would probably call this a better Natty Lite, and that’s not really saying much.

Clear light amber. Foamy, tightly knit beige head. Easy but firm carbonation. Alluring aroma of grapefruit and dry pine needles. Initially crisp, lightly bitter but staunchly hoppy with dry pine needles, grapefruit pith and dry malts. Medium light body. Clean and arid but appeasing with its hoppy backbone. Finishes with a lengthy bite of pine and freshly shaved grapefruit peels. Really nice.
