A staple on draught and from the bottle throughout the Pacific Northwest, this one has sadly changed siginificantly in the past few years. While its still exceptionally characteristic of a traditional pale ale, featuring a rich golden hue, striking balance of hops and malts, and a spritzy and pungent kick on the palette, its not the stalwart classic it once used to be.
I've recently become a litlte more accustomed to their Scotch style ale -- Kilt Lifter -- as a better replacement, albeit slightly different style.
Having said that, this Pike is still a clear winner. Always consistent visually, aromatically, and tastewise. Its an easy drinking beer, and thanks to its bitter kick, is a super accompaniment with good food.
