I bought a 22 oz bottle of Mountain Rescue Dry Hop Pale Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.
Pours a burnt orange/gold color, hazy with a thick foamy white head. The bottle has some nice artwork on it, silk screened not a paper label.
Smell is a light sweet citrus aroma, lemon blossoms and sweet orange scents.
Taste is a sweet bread flavor upfront, with a hint of caramel, and then a mildly bitter citrus and pine finish. It's a mild dry hop bitterness, not like an IPA.
Mouthfeel has some body to it, but it's a clean feel and appropriate for the style.
Overall a very good, full flavored and tasty pale ale. I'd have this again. A solid offering from Good Life Brewing. And yet another reason to queue up a trip to Bend, Oregon.

This stood out due to the artwork and the fact that it's a brewery that just got picked up around here.
Pours a nice copper with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Plenty of lacing lines the edges of the glass.
It certainly is dry-hopped and nice balance of pine and citrus in the nose. There's also a hint of tasty malt underneath.
Very bitter upfront with more of that excellent citrus/pine hop balance in the flavor.
Lingering bitterness "scorches" and coats the back of the throat. There's not much else to enjoy except for some butteriness from the malt.
Too strong to be a pale ale. I'm thinking extra pale. Worth a try at least.

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.

From the ridiculous 22oz format. Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a very cloudy orange-amber color with way over an inch of off-white head that very good retention and pretty good lacing.
The aroma was neutral at first, but after a minute some pine and citrus hops popped up, with just the faintest hint of malt in the background. The taste was a bit more hop forward, I'd say this tastes more like an IPA than a Pale, and had a bit of sweetness that didn't show in the nose.
The body was a bit thinner than I like in the style, but wasn't at all watery. Drinkability was decent, it went down quickly and easily, but not memorably. Overall, a decent enough brew, one that probably would have gotten a bit higher score if it were approached as an IPA. Worth a shot if you see it.

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.

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
