This bottle released a beautiful dark gold liquid with a nice thin white head. Very fragrant. Oranges, lemons, grapefruit, spice.

Slight malty sweetness, which is quickly buried under a wave of hoppy goodness. Mixed in with the hops I can detect apples and citrus. The hops never quite hide the creaminess of the malt, but there's no contest as to who wins this battle.

Obviously, this beer is a classic. It is widely available and worth returning to every so often. Even though I worship the hop, I usually like my ``unimperial'' pale ales a bit more balanced than this one. Still, it tastes darn good.
