jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Awesome American Pale Ale! Pours a beautiful golden with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops and fresh malt. Flavor has notes of sweet pale malt, grapefruit/floral and fruity hops with great malt balance. A slight touch of pine. Pleasant aftertaste of fresh, sweet wort. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Nice bitter aftertaste. One of my staples, the flagship American Pale Ale and gateway brew. Hightly recommended!

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2004
Bottled. Golden. First impression is of a hoppy beer with lots of bitterness, underlined with a pleasent biscuit like malt base. Mild floral, perfume & citrus flavours/aroma.

levandy (4) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004 does not count
So far, in my youth this is one of my favorites. Did not used to be to big on hopps, but this is such a beautiful combination of flavors that are full from beginning to the end. This beer would be almost perfect for what it is if the head could last just a bit longer. Clear amber in color. Not a guzzeler because the flavor is so rich. Hopps are the stars in this one.

screigh (708) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Poured a very small head with no lasting power, no lacing. Smell is heavy hops (not as much as Alpha King). The taste is very well balanced...hoppy and long lasting palate. Great beer!

At 776 rating so far, I dont feel this needs a in-depth desription. Still a classic, well balanced APA.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2004
Pours a medium rich amber clear with a small shortish lasting head. Medium strong luscious aromatic floral hops aromas and complex flavours. Medium to full body. Medium strong, full of character, crisp bitter hoppy finish. I was quite surprised by how good this one was.

CEZ (414) - Milano, ITALY - APR 29, 2004
Im beginning to think that I would one of the biggest fan of american hops, if only I could get more beers like this. I adore the crisp aroma of this beer (citric, floral, yeasty) and the refreshing taste, clean and yet full of flavours: delicate malt sweetness which subtly turns to orange and leads to a strong, long, dry, spicy hoppy finish. Yumm!
