On tap @ The Ram, Boise ID. Served in a true 18oz pint glass.
A: Attractive, slightly cloudy golden orange color, with good effervescence. The head is bright white and creamy, and sticks all over the glass.
S: Smells like a 50/50 union between grapefruity, floral hops and sweet caramel malt. Smells really refreshing.
T & MF: Taste follows the nose, with just a touch of hop bitterness. Sweet caramel malt gives the beer a crisp, creamy body, and the bitterness is really nice. Good hints at grapefruit flavors. Lighter medium body with slight drying finish.
O: Nothing is overdone with this APA. Highly drinkable, with 'good' though not 'great' hop presence.

Purchased at The Ram in Salem, Oregon. No idea where it is brewed.
Pours amber with a modest off-white head and very good lacings.
Aroma is muted floral hops.
Taste is dark bitter hops with a strong malt backup. Flavors of apricot, grapefruit, and leather.
Mouthfeel is just right for the style.
Drinkability is very good. No abv listed anywhere. I would guess about a 5.6%.

Had on tap the the U Village Ram in Seattle. I didn't want to add the same beer again.
A - Served a darker than pale orange with a big fluffy near white head. Good retention and lots of lacing left down the entire glass.
S - Wheatish, citrusy. Mostly lemons.
T - Same as the smell. Lots of lemons, oranges, and wheat.
D - Good carb and body. Smooth with a slight bitter finish.
O - Light and refreshing. Easy drinking.

Per the menu, the 71 Pale Ale is a blend of 5 hops with a touch of rye. Served in an 18 oz shaker, the beer is gold with a chill haze. Thick white head with awesome lacing.
The nose is a bit underpowered for an APA. Reminds me a bit of a blond. Light malts, a bit of pepper and citrus rind.
The taste is a bit bitterer than the aroma would have made me to believe. I guess the 5 hops are working. Nice mix of pine, grapefruit with the rye noticeable in its spicy finish. Not bad at all!
The mouth has a nice bite. Easy to drink, could work as a crossover session beer. Up the aroma a bit and you've got a real winner.
