My lovely wife surprised me with a growler of this last night after going out with her best friend.

Funny thing is, the wife does not drink, but her friend got a sampler from the Brewery. After trying each one, she (the best friend) picked the one she hated, knowing I'd like it...she was correct.

Poured a hazy light orange in my Sam Adams pint glass. Decent sticky lace that coated the glass. A thin white ring stayed for the duration.

Yum, that's a fresh smelling APA. Getting equal amounts pine, citrus, and spices. Quite aromatic.

Taste follows smell completely. A very resiny pine and citrus(orange, lemon) combo on this one. Even a bit of ginger maybe? Super fresh, nice malt backbone, but the hops take center stage here. Earthy and dank, a very nice APA surprise. Moderate carbonation, goes down super easy...wish I knew what the ABV was...my guess is around 6.

I'd say this one is a hit folks. Try some if you hit NxNW. Thanks again for the growler sweetie!

3.73/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Chilled fresh growler into a nonic pint.

Look- Hazy deep gold with two fingers of off-white head. Plenty of webblike lace left behind as it settles slowly, suds persist until the glass has emptied.

Smell- Strong caramel malt with a hint of floral hops and lemon rind. Very sweet.

Taste- Not particularly complex or bold, but spot-on for the execution. Starts with a wash of bitterness before moving to graham-cracker malt and finishing with citrus and pine. Aftertaste is bready and fades quickly. It's not flashy, but it's pretty darn good.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light carbonation. Refreshing feel. Exceptionally drinkable.

Overall- It's not going to wow anyone, but it's not trying to. Refreshing, drinkable, and fits the style and the food at NXNW. I'll definitely be having it again.

Picked up a growler after the Jester King first anniversary party and opened it up the next day. Poured into a wine glass.

It pours a very clear orange amber with yellow hues and a fluffy white head that slowly fades into a thin lacing and clings to the side of the glass. The nose is full of pine and a hint of citrus with a nice malty bready sweetness peeking through. Medium carbonation with medium body and a dry slightly lingering finish. The taste is slightly bitter, mostly piney with a nice malt backbone that I would consider bready. I definitely enjoyed this beer and am glad I picked up a growler.

Glad I finally made it out to NXNW and I was not disappointed.

4.2/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Golden in color with lots of white frothy head. Fades quickly but plenty of lacing left behind.

Smell - Grapefruit and a bit of sweetness in the aroma.

Taste - Plenty of bitter hops and grapefruit. A bit of the malt distant in the background. Just a bit of carbonation.

Mouthfeel - Smooth with just a touch of carbonation. The hops are very enjoyable without any harshness.

Drinkability - This is a really nice pale ale. It represents the style very well. I love pale ales and IPAs that turn on the citrus/grapefruit quality of the hops. Not all of them do this. This one does it very well. This one will go down very nicely!

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub. The beer pours an orange yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a nice grapefruit hop note along with some biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grapefruit and some other notes from the Cascade hops, with some biscuit malt to balance things out. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Balanced and easy to drink.

On tap at NXNW:

A - pale gold, nice foam and lacing

S - beautiful American citrus hop aroma. Pine, citrus, tropical fruit

T - nice showcase of hop flavor, not a ton of malt character, but I'm really enjoying the hops

M/D - medium thin mouthfeel, very dry and drinkable. This is one of my favortite APAs.
