COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thick, persistent head over light copper. Cascade hops meets electrical fire aroma, but in a kinda good way. Flavor is a well balanced typical APA but has a tingly, almost smoky character to it in the background. Power of suggestion? I dunno.

A nice golden appearance, with a thin white head. Mainly hops on the nose, both floral and bitter. Taste was initially sweet and finished with a mix of bitter and floral hops.

Draft. Unclear dark burnt orange. Things arent quite coming together here. Jumbled. Hops dont showcase well. Ok

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Clear copper color pour with a small foamy head that leaves touches of lace. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, some caramel malt, and yeast dough. Flavor is good, though not overly complex. Pretty decent balance of malt and hops. Ovarall a higly drinkable, refreshing brew. Glad to see it in bottles!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Pours a rich orange gold w/ full creamy froth the quickly rests to a shallow creamy pond. Aromas of big biscuits and bright citrus fruit (puppies breath). Full nectar w/ soft creamy residuals. Flavors are freshly blakened biscuts w/ a fast bitter twitch that supresses the butter. Becomes too bitter too quick. I feel robbed of the full biscut butter. Finish is citrified bitter w/ the same biscuit. This brew has no mid palate leaving a hollow sensation. Overall: a nice English style with a big hollow mid-palate.

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.

haddon90 (1625) - Newport Beach, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Cloudy copper color with a frothy white head. Slight hops in the aroma, but nothing too dominant. Bitter, dry hops in the taste. Kind of different. Nothing jumped out at me about this beer. Its OK, but thanks Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing this to me.

Bomber from spark-diggity-dog! Thanks !... Poured into a sam adams lager glass. No head? Light orange in color. Aroma is light hops and malt. Intial taste was a little cinnamon. Minor touch of hops and malt. Light and crisp. Easy to drink, good example of what a pale ale should be. Thanks again E.

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