This one is tough to review.

No, not because I'm confused in any way as to how great this beer is. No ... great would be an understatement. But this would be a great IPA, nevermind a pale!

It pours a shade of sun touched honey that makes me want to taste it the instant I see it. Head is minimal. Nice lacing left behind. This color always tells me the finish won't be too sweet for a pale or IPA and I'm not wrong.

One whiff and my nose is nearly assaulted by the scent of orange rind, mango, tangerine, and peach. Lovely. There's some biscuit there too but it seems to be fighting for recognition amongst all the tropical fruit.

One sip releases the floodgates of orange, grapefruit, pine needles, caramel, and again, biscuit. Bravo!

A lot has changed over the years. There was a time when the east coast by and large didn't have the taste for hops we out west do. They've caught on a bit but I feel like this would be a bit extreme for an east coaster looking for a pale. For me, it is nearly exactly what I want. This beer should set the standard for a Northwest Pale Ale.

I had this beer on-tap in my OBF pint glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: slightly hazy, rich orange hue with a light effervescence and a thin layer of white foam. I think it looks pretty good.

Smell: sweet, but not too sweet; a little bit tangeriney, a little bit grapefruity. Nice and light underlying malt character which works really well.

Taste: flavor is really good; hops are a little more herby than the aroma, but overall it's still very bright and balanced. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess. I like it.

Overall: very solid, quaffable pale ale; just an all-round great beer. I would love to have this again.

Serving type: on-tap
