A good beer I will be looking for other brews by this company. Somewhat nice aroma. Good balance of hops and malt. Creamy head. I am rapidly being converted to buying California based microbrews.

This is the benchmark beer. The best beer made at this volume hands down. We all know what it tastes like...so whatever.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Clear, dark golden with a large, creamy white head. Mild hoppy, grassy aroma. Great hoppy, spicy flavor that is very well balanced. Close in flavor to an IPA. Nice body and very smooth mouthfeel. Moderately carbonated. Overall this is an everyday favorite. Something I consistently order at restaurants or pick up at the grocery store.

24 oz. bottle. Pours amber with medium head. Easy to drink, citrusy, though I think the aftertaste of the citrus may have been a bit much for me. Still enjoyed the hops, and think this is one you can drink several of without being overwhelmed.

kramer (6570) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear copper pour with a firm and creamy off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma, very clean with some bready malt. Fairly aggressive hop flavor with caramel malt background. Lightly bitter and refreshing on the finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation, just shy of creamy texture. Its a classic. Aggressive enough to please your average hophead but subtle enough for an into to craft beer.

hotstuff (5073) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2006
White small fizzy head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, hazy, carbonated, and a golden orange hue. Aroma was malty, sweet and hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty and not overly hoppy. Medium body.

always a classic choice... its a great IPA that is growing nationally even though it started from a small little town. The best widely avail. microbrew in the US.

"Out of the bottle it pours a nice golden color with a nice head. Had a sweet aroma. Carbonation was good with an average mouthfeel. This beer had a creamy sweet taste to it. Not bad for a pale ale."
