Golden/orange in color, this pale ale offers perfect clarity and an off- white head of foam that is slight but still manages to leave some lacing. The nose on this ale is one of citrus, pine, and caramel with some floral notes.
Tasting this beer reveals a somewhat different flavor than the nose led me to believe. There is a grapefruit component and some pine, but there are other flavors present like lemon, tea, biscuit- like malts, and honey. The beer finishes with an agreeable earthy hop dryness that is not overwhelming and the beer remains well- balanced overall.
This is definitely an interesting and balanced brew from this Oregon brewery and it took me a little by surprise. With its crystal clear body and other traits, I was expecting it to be a little too clean and perhaps too light. But the brewers seem to have struck the target they were trying to hit with this beer. Its flavor is pleasant, not extreme in any way, and the product is quite drinkable and memorable. It’s a good beer all- around and one that earns an easy recommendation.
