America's best overall microbrewery. This beer is very hoppy and has a clean finish.

Maybe the most overrated beer on the planet. It is actually a decent version of an American Pale Ale. But for $2 less, or more, you can get a 6 of Saranac Pale Ale, which is just as good.

I have had to recently revisit this fine beer. It has all the malt and enough hops to really satisfy. My first impressions were not that great, too flowery. But on second thought I now appreciate that quality.

This is one of my fav's when it comes to national brands. It is a great strong tasting beer and very hoppy,

A very crisp, well hopped beer. As always, more hops are welcome for the style.

Great golden color, big beautiful hop aroma (cascades) and a very well done malt balance act leaning on the bitter side. On tap this beer is awesome ...in a bottle it loses a little but still is very impressive.

A good solid beer. A semi-hoppy beer and I liked it. .......................

I don't have too much experience with pale ales, but this one seemed pretty good. Too much hops for my taste preferences, but if you're into that, it's a good beer.
