3.5/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Had at Top Notch in VT. Difficulty with this review is I am in beer heaven so my palate is expecting a lot from this one. Never heard of this beer when I lived in Oregon. Pours a nice light amber color, with a slight head. Has a florally smell, and the taste is pretty much the same. Slightly nutty and grapefruit taste. Mildly hoppy - kind of a poor mans Sierra Nevada. A drinkable beer likely nice on a hot day. May come back again for this

Serving type: on-tap

Argh. BA password changes have made me re-enter this review, so it will be more terse and less helpful than it might have been.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze, strong effervescence, and a finger of ivory foam. Nice.

Smell: very floral for the style; there are notes of lavender here.

Taste: much like the aroma. Good, if you like floral APAs.

Mouthfeel: quite creamy for the style; I approve.

Overall: I could drink a few of these. Worth a try if you like floral APAs.

Slightly hazed dark amber shows lots of tiny bubbles in the glass. Better than average head retention. Bright and sudsy on the tongue. The body seems pretty full for the moderate alcohol content. Can you smell caramel? That and some herbal notes.

The warm malt is the dominant flavor at first, followed by the leafy, herbaceous hops. The dry hopping provides a lot of aromatics without as much bitterness as many bigger Pale Ales. This seems like a nice version that is well within the style-- hoppy but not too hopped up, and pleasantly malty. A touch of roasted malt that is reminiscent of a Märzen.

Another good Pale Ale from Oregon. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.
