A superb example of an American Pale Ale. The Cascade hop flavor just explodes in your mouth. Combined with the clean malt character and smooth finish, you are left utterly wanting another when your glass is empty.

Very nice APA. Great aroma, very fresh tasting, crisp, citrusy, with a nice hop bite. Best thing I've ever gotten from Microbeer Club.

Absolutely amazing aroma!! Nice hop flavor, though a little more than most Pale Ales... this isn't a negative, but it tastes more like an IPA.

gotebo (11) - carnegie, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Pours with a cloudy, copper colour. Small head with some lacing. First drink explodes with a crisp, citrusy flavor. THis would make a great lawnmower beer on a hot day.

jimhilt (2603) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Pours with a white three-fingered head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation and body. Orange-amber color, not completely clear. Very citrusy hoppy nose. Starts slightly sweet but hoppy and finishes citrusy with a bite. Surprisingly good flavor after being frozen solid.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Bottle: Citrus aroma and initial flavor. Malt is apparant. Balanced. A local brew for me so I suppose I get it at or near it's best. Very good Pale Ale.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Pours a normal amber color with light head. Aroma is slightly musky with a fresh hop presence. Flavor is also filled with hops for an APA, has a nice sweet malty finish. I liked this APA, Thanks TTB!

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Pours golden, small white head; pretty standard for a pale. Aroma is full of floral and citrus hops. Flavor is the same with just a hint of apricot. Very nice palate finishing a bit bitter. Great pale.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 tap-tucson beer fest WOW-thanks to squidget on this one! he said "go get some burning bird", so i did. This is a great pale ale! very balanced with an incredible aroma! very very sweet-nice hops from start to finish. re-rate-in the bottle, this is not as flavorful as on tap-a bit thin too-wonderful aroma still, but a little more straw/grassy flavor going from the bottle.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2003
This beer is a copper color with a thick cream to tan colored head. Fairly clear with a bit of chill haze when it first pours. Smells like American hops, an orange-marmalade / grapefruit aroma to it. Smells sweet from the hops as well. There is a full amount of hop flavor that seeps through as this beer passes through my mouth. Citrus flavors, lightly malty sweet, just wonderful. A fine example of a pale ale, which surpasses many of its more popular brethren pale ales. Finishes with a good hop bitterness. As the beer warms up a bit it becomes quite clear. This beer and the hops definitely remind me of orange-marmalade, yummy.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Citrusy and lightly floral aroma, some tangerine and grapefruit, along with a touch of lightly toasty malt sweetness. Medium golden color, slightly hazy, with a creamy, settling head. Malty, sweet caramel and a bit of flowery perfume up front, followed by a blend of fruity, citric hop flavors. Light-medium bodied, palate is a little bubbly. Nice hoppy aftertaste.
