Very easy to find. Great standby when you’re either in a pinch for money or location to buy harder to find items. They may serve it on tap at Angels stadium next to the Coors Light, but in the midwest it’s a very quality beer.

Nice looking pale ale as it pours however the twist-off caps seems to cheapen the product somehow. Full malt flavor with an assertive hop bite attests to this beers faithfulness to the original recipe. Fine example of an APA.

Not big on pale ale’s but.... the smell is malty and a bit yeasty with some nice floral hops coming through. Pours a wonderful amber with a medium white frothy head. Starts with some spicy/sweet maltiness and finishes with just enough hop bitterness/citrus to balance it out. Medium to full bodied and not overly carbonated. Very nice pale ale.

350 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Deep golden / amber colour, slightly hazy, large head. Pleasant hoppy aroma with strong fruity notes (citrus, raisins, prunes). Hoppy flavour on a decent malty base, notes of fruits (grapefruit, raisins) and spices. It’s easy to understand why this beer has become part of the staple diet of many American beer afficionados.

The frist micro I got into, although its hard to call this a micro anymore. Pours a pretty copper color with a good head. Maltly citrus aromas. Has a little bit of spicyness to it and finsihes on a nice hop note. One the the best pale ales out there, and thankfully available everywhere.

Not a bad beer for a Pale Ale which is definately not my favorite type of beer. Starts out with a pretty harsh taste then kinda mellows out as you go. Not bad but definately not my everyday beer.

Picked this up near the end of vacation in South Carolina and brought the leftovers home. Nose is malty and a bit yeasty with some nice floral hops coming through. Pours a wonderful amber with a medium white foamy head. Starts with some spicy/sweet maltiness and finishes with just enough hop bitterness/citrus to balance it out. Medium to full bodied and not overly carbonated. Very nice pale ale.
