3.5/5 rDev -7.2%
From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #64 (May 2012):
LOOK: Hazed amber, creamy lacing
SMELL: Juicy grapefruit, piney, mint, nutty grain, leafy
TASTE: Big smoothness, medium body, extra juicy, citric bomb, evergreen, vegetal, dry, biscuity, bitter orange peel, pithy
Starts off strong with a huge hoppy nose. It being a Pale Ale and all, we were surprised to see less balance here, as the hop flavor draws too much from the palate. Hop heavy without a massive hop bitterness.

Two fingers of head on a clear, copper colored body.
Nice aroma of spruce and pineapple.
Pine taste at first, then building dry lemon bitterness to the end.
Soft texture with lower carbonation and medium body.
It has great aroma, and good taste and texture. As a pale ale it is pretty hoppy though.

3.75/5 rDev -0.5%
- Pours a lightly cloudy copper with a quickly fizzing bubbly white head. Scattered bubbles, and various blotches of foam left about and a medium ring of chunky lace left about the glass. Nice looking ale.
- The malt forwardness is strong, and something I don't really favor in a beer, especially a pale ale. A super bready malt aroma with a backbone of caramel and husky grain. On a positive note, a nice pine and grassy hop hits hard up front, and finishes with a very pleasant floral aroma. I do like the hop aromatics quite a bit in this one.
- Biscuit, bread, subtle and not-so-sweet caramel, pine and earthy hop bitters, and a super balanced floral hop. So glad the flavor made up for the aroma. Nice full flavor, and all grain goodness with a great hop presence. I almost have to cutoff air intake via the nostrils though when I enjoy this beer.
Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Nice full body for a light pale. Creamy, crisp, only a touch dry, and certainly chewy. No super sweet syrupy chewiness though. Perfectly carbonated. Drinks more like a robust IPA.
- This beer does indeed stand out. The feel, and balance is unmatched.. yet not something I would expect in a light drinking pale ale. It is a full bodied, full flavored ale that could almost be considered a meal. That's very good, but I am rating a pale ale here. A standard table ale? An amber? Might get even higher marks from me. Solid, and certainly worth the purchase. I look forward to more offerings from this long time and well know brewer in the Northwest.

From a bomber. Pours hazy amber with two fingers of cream white head. Good amount of fine lacing. Floral hop aroma with some dark leather scent. Taste is full resinous moderately bitter hops with a plentiful amount of malt support. Mouthfeel is quite full for the style. Carbonation is a bit less than average which makes it quite drinkable. Overall a fine APA and well worth a bomber purchase and contributes to a good cause as well.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium copper amber with a nice two finger off-white head and lots of lacing. Great aroma of bready and caramel malt, citrus and light pine hops, bordering on IPA country. Pleasant flavor of sweet malt and herbal and pine hops, light citrus and hop finish. Nicely balanced and integrated flavors. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess, not what I'd expect from a low ABV pale ale, but appreciated. Flavors are somewhat muted, but in style for a pale ale. A pleasant, refreshing pale ale for a rare hot Seattle evening. Very glad I got to try this; it's a worthy tribute to it's title mountain rescuers.

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $3.99 Clear light amber colored ale with a nice thick,bubbly off white head. Sweet malty aromas..caramel, some nuttiness. Taste is very well balanced there is caramel mats and grassy hop but they seem totally intertwined..and none dominate until the end when a nice grassy bitterness takes over. Nice enough on the palate..maybe a smidgen too sweet and sticky in the end. An OK beer somewhere between and amber and a APA

S - Hoppy pine and grass, some lemon tones also come through.
T - Bitter grass and light lemons.
D - Good carbonation with a thinner body.
O - A hoppy pale, solid and it supports a good cause.
