The American version is much better than the earlier British. If the Masala Mama ever runs out, this is a nice backup. (118 characters)

Pint glass at the bar

A: light copper color with a half finger off-white head, crystal clear.
S: Hops, massive amount of citrus and pine hops, very American.
T: Very sharp bitterness, I don't usually taste "cat piss" in beers, but I think that some people would find that "flavor" here. A different malt profile from Masala Mama, more rounded and sweet, complements the hops very well.
M: Low level of carbonation that seems to open up the beer.
O: An excellent APA, it seems that the brewers threw financial caution to the wind with regards to hop usage, appears to be an amazing amount of late additions were used here. Great beer and <5% (according to the menu). Very recommended. (687 characters)

Orange color with blond hue. Light but distinctive malt body and a zesty citrus hop character. Grapefruit, orange, mango notes coming through. A pleasing and clean finish that's dry and not bitter. (197 characters)

mmm... I love me some pale ales!
on tap at Minneapolis Town Hall -- reviewed from short notes

Golden body, white head, nice lace. Good retention.
Smells nicely hopped, with grassy, floral, and citrus notes.
The taste is GREAT-- just like the nose indicates, but with a nice bitter punch at the back end.
The body is good-- medium, little oily, little prickly, good carbonation.
Overall-- I would certainly buy this if it were available. It is VERY nice, and easily one of the best beers I've had from the brewery! (521 characters)
