UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 Bottled. A very good ale. A nice hop bitterness sets this one apart from other ales I drimk. When I bought this I was pleasantly suprised to see what a high rating this one has!! It lives up to the rating!! The head pours a little off white, and lasts awhile, and the aroma is somewhat malty -hoppy. The color is a nice deep almost copper color. Definately not one for the llight beer crowd, unless they want to step up to something special!

My staple beer. Long on flavor and high in specific gravity. If nothing else, the beckoning, hoppy aroma will draw you into the bottle.

Looks perfect poured into a glass. Malty, hoppy, with a long, bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 Its an ok IPA. I think the ones from Goose Island are much better. Not a bad choice but much better choices are out there.

Everyones favorite IPA, except, I dont like IPAs. Great color and palate, refreshing and bitter, but I hate the aftertaste, very funky on my tongue.

A nice coppery color with a strong hop aroma. Very nice hoppy flavor - better than many IPAs out there. I like this beer and can always find it at the supermarket. A great every day beer.

Classic American Pale Ale - nice copper hue with a full white head. Faint malt and sharp hop aroma. Very clean, mildly fruity with a lasting hop finish. Bottle Conditioning leaves this beer with perfect carbonation and amazing clarity.

The best beer/ale for the money (6 pack $7.49). Goes down real easy. One of the best daily drinking beers that wont drain your pocketbook.
