4.15/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Tap at the brewery - review dated 6/26/2009.
Mostly clear golden-orange color with a white head.
Nice piney hop aroma balanced by sweet caramel malt and some grains.
Flavor is somewhat sweet pale and caramel malts and fresh piney/citrusy Cascade hops (was dry-hopped according to the person serving it).
Palate medium with medium-high carbonation.
A really nice APA. I feel like this is a beer that is much better fresh than even after a couple months.
Serving type: on-tap

O = I like this ale, and although it's not as malty as I like my ales, it's got a tolerable level of hops that makes it very drinkable and delicious. I would pair this with a variety of hearty meals, and definitely would drink again.
A = a lovely burnt amber, not cloudy, with a nice amount of lacing left after the short-lived head dissipates.
S = slightly hoppy, fresh, with a tinge of grapefruit.
T = some malt, but my palate finished with an almost smokey hop quality.
M = Medium bodied and refreshing. Would not say silky, though. The alcohol level is quite balanced.
