UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 What a great Pale Ale! Hoppy with more body than a typical Pale Ale, but the right amount of alcohol. Just wish I could find this by the case. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2001
Awesome pale ale. Nice floral and piney aroma, refreshing floral and citrusy taste. Excellent, excellent hop flavor. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 24, 2002

It’s Pennsylvania APA night at my house and next up is Troegs APA. Beautiful Amber nectar with picture perfect head. Very different from the Stoudts. Much more hoppy and bitter. Not as citrusy or sweet but definitely has a lipton lemon sweet tea undertone. Very nice beer. I’m going to call this a very close race. I’m going to give this round to Troegs. Excellent beer but just by a single strand of hair. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Found this one bottled in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Hazy, light orange pour with a lacy, white head, crisp, citrusy hops and grapefruit nose, excellent citrusy notes throughout, especially grapefruit, lime, and a touch of clover honey. Tight, dry finish. Excellent.

Aroma: Floral hops with light caramel malt undertones.
Appearance: Pale gold with a light carbonation, nice white head.
Taste: Light Sweetness,Medium Bitterness, Light Sourness. Very pleasant combination.
Palate: Medium body, thin, almost crisp, texture, lively carbonation, and a decent finish.
Overall: Not a mind blowing pale ale, but certainly one of high standards and quality. I could see this being a more subtle, deceptive pale ale that would sneak up on the drinker after a few bottles. Very solid beer. Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 30, 2001
Clean, earthy pine and hops aroma with a beautiful glowing gold body and thin but adequate bone head with moderate lacing. Heady hops flavoring and subtle lemon effervescence complemented by rich maltiness. Finishes smoothly, leaving behind the characteristic hop bitterness and unexpected and unconventional, but welcome, hint of pineapple. Taste improves as it warms, but allows yeast to rear its ugly head in the aroma. obxdude10 (2357) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 I felt the need to revise my original comments after sampling this wonderful pale ale again. I hadn’t drank it in a while, until I was over at a friend’s house for lunch one afternoon. Upon the first sip, I was really taken aback by the pure beauty of this beer. I clearly remember actually bucking my neck back, looking at the bottle and saying to myself, ’Wow, this is really delicious.’ My original review from several years ago did this beer absoutely no justice whatsoever. This pale ale pours a clear and crisp copper color with a generous off-white head. The head leaves a small amount of lacing around the glass, but it’s sticky and leaves an inviting aroma behind. The nose itself begs you to leave the glass in front of your face for an extended period of time, much like a child pressing his/her face up against a store-front window, gazing at potential Christmas presents. I find a ton of flowery hops in the aroma, along with hints of caramel, bread, pine and grapefruit. The body is incredibly smooth and dangerously drinkable. This pale ale simply flows down the throat much like a swift current of water down a river. Troegs Pale Ale is so delicious and drinkable that I literally blew through three bottles in the course of about 40 mintues. This case isn’t gonna last very long! The flavors keep me coming back for more, with notes of spicy but very balanced hops, lightly toasted bread, pine, grapefruit, slight bubblegum, clove and caramel malt. The finish is a bit on the dry side, which I really appreciate in a pale ale, along with more spicy hops and a balanced malty profile. I have a feeling that Troegs Pale Ale will quickly become by go-to pale ale. drreim (3) - USA - AUG 4, 2005 does not count
One of my many favorites at Troegs. I actually prefer this bottled. Light golden color, very hoppy fragarence. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2000
This is a GOOD beer. Bold and firm hop presence; flavorful too. Copper amber color sparkles in the light. It has a swimsuit model's 'body,' and it's strong on the palate. Hoppy aftertaste that's warm and soothing. I can't wait to try the other Troegs beers.
