On tap into an American pint glass @ the Hi-Life, Ballard, Seattle. Pours a clear coppery amber w/ a minimal head.

Aroma is floral NW hops and some nice citrus notes.

Taste is fruity and bready malt, floral and citrusy hops. Some nice grassy notes. Almost like a hoppy Märzen. Finishes moderately bitter and crisp.

Mouthfeel is soft, very drinkable.

Overall a really nice, well-rounded APA. Would buy this regularly.

On tap at The Beer Authority on 6.18.13

A - Served a surprisingly dark, hazy orange with a small tan head that mostly was just clinging to the glass.

S - Bitter hopes, sweet bready malts, a touch of grass and citrus.

T - Bitter grass, orange peel, caramel, sweet malts.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - Not really impressed, Pretty malty and dark for a pale.

Appearance: Bright orange with a nice head that provided sticky lacing.

Smell: Light citrus hop scent with some bready malts as well. Nothing overpowering.

Taste: Straightforward pale with bready malts and enough citrus hops to make me notice. Soft bitterness on the finish without much lingering flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with average carbonation.

Overall: Nothing jumped out at me, but this is a straightforward pale that I'd be happy to drink again as a predictable and drinkable pale ale.
