This medal winning pale ale is a rich pale-ambler ale, with a deep copper color. It has a pleasant ale-like fruitness with medium hop flavor and aroma. “Dive in!”

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a cloudy medium coppery amber with a half finger light khaki head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of light caramel and biscuit malt with mild citrus and grassy hops. Flavor is rich biscuit malt developing an interesting grassy hop flavor with light citrus, finishing with residual biscuit and grassy hop bitterness. Exceptional medium creamy body for a pale ale. A nice flavor progression from the deep biscuit malt through a good grassy hop bitterness in the finish. I liked this quit a bit. Picked up a few assorted cans from this brewery on a road trip and this first one gives me no regrets for getting a variety. Looking forward to the rest.

12oz can into a Widmer oversized nonic.

A: Lightly hazy burnt gold color with a nice white head and some good lace.

S: Zesty grapefruit and orange pith, citrus, some dank orange and pine, dry-ish with a hint of biscuit and toasted malt.

T: Smoother and balanced, a touch more malt here than the nose...toast, biscuit, and a nice dose of citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit) hops and some piney, dank/earthy undertones.

MF: Feels bigger than a 5% pale, malt makes itself known...low bitterness, creamy, with a touch of dryness on the finish.

O: A nice pale, with a good nose and a balanced body.

thanks to john galt for this one!

A: pours a deep amber almost red with a nice thin head that dissapears fairly quickly. nice lacing on the side.

S: caramel malt is apparent on the nose at first but is soon followed with a strong spiciness from the hops.

T: very much the same as the taste. caramel malts roll across the tongue at first but is quickly matched in a perfect balance of spicy herbal hops. a slight taste of tobacco, something i dont normally pick up seems to be there as well.

M: a little thin and watery on the palatte. light carbonation.

D: easy drinker even with the slight alcohol burn that usually isn't apparent at 5%. wonderfully balanced.
