Dark copper pour with average head, but more than average lacing. Light malt, toffee aroma. Not the hoppiness you would expect from a pale ale. Taste is more malt, some caramel, mildly sweet, but not hoppy at all. Very close to an amber or brown ale.

T: caramel malty sweetness. Citrus and grapefruit. There is a hint of chocolate malt.. Pine one finish.

Pale amber with a web of tan froth.
Floral and waxy lemon Cascade nose with some sour caramel.
Salted toffee, a big whack of crystal malt, and then pine sap, orange rind, and nectar hops.
Caramel comeback and bitter linger.
Light, slightly clingy, metallic.

A bit thin, the hops barely hold up, and it’s too strong to session. Still, I do believe the 60 IBUs, and it’s flavorful enough to hold your interest if you do stick with it. Works as a substitute for dull IPAs.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Hazed reddish copper, great lacing

SMELL: Toasted bread, citrus rind, mint, hay, caramel, spice, figs, yeast

TASTE: Very smooth, creamy, toasted bread, hop bitterness, buckwheat honey, earthy, orange rind, nutmeg, evergreen, faint alcohol warmth, dried plums, peppery, grainy, semi-bitter finish

An all-around solid and very well-balanced American Red Ale with that PNW trademark lien to hops. Organic as well, which seems to be no longer a trend but perhaps a life-choice for some. Thankfully for them, they have beers like this. Great job on this one!
