Overall a good pale. I like the look, good head that sticks to the glass, nice initial flavor. -The smell is fresh, no dominating scents. Well balanced taste. Nice malty character. Some bitterness that stayed on my tongue for a while.

Came in a 12pk sampler. I'd drink it again.

With all of the beers out there, I had forgot about this old standby. It is a great balanced APA. It's something to think that this was considered a strong beer for it's day 1989 and now, I like it for it's balance. Be sure to revisit your old friends!
A-Nice pale color, head goes down quickly.
S-I used to just down this stuff at the bars, slow down, actually has a nice aroma of fruit and hops. Never really remembered that.
M-Here's the balance, very nice, goes well with the summer BBQ or just sipping outside on the deck.
O-This one started the greatness at Boulevard and it still holds it's own in a crowded APA market.
