Ordered this beer then saw the low review and was nervous waiting for the waitress to bring it. Doesn't have a big taste but deserves a better rating than 77.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma starts with bright mango and pineapple, but quickly turns to a dull dank smell. The change is abrupt.
The taste has a solid and bold bitterness all the way through. The malt attempts to balance it but the hops dominate.
The texture is crisp with a thicker body.
It's enjoyable. Lots of big hops.

Medium amber color with a brownish tinge in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Plenty of foam. The aroma is interesting, with a piney note and a whiff of celery and green tea. Lots of carbonation on the tongue.

Just the faintest sweetness. Some malt with an acidic edge. Starts out moderately bitter but veers toward the unpleasantly herb tea bitterness after some sipping. There is a lemony sourish note at the end that doesn't add much to the overall impression.

A sudsy Pale Ale sort of brew. Not much to please here. From the 22 oz bottle bought at The Market in Anacortes.
