3.65/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a nice orange amber with little or no head.Lively carb just not much in the frothy head department. Taste is sweeet, with some hops in there but not much. The aroma is yeasty. Easy drinking pale. Not much else to say. Kinda blah but it is a good example of a PNW pale just could use more bitterness to offset the super sweet flavor. Good entry American pale ale for those making switch from BMC brews.

3.43/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Lacings are average.
Smell is bready malts with just enough herbal hops to keep to style.
Taste is herbal earthy hops with a light funk to them. The malts are bready and lightly dirty.
Mouthfeel is medium fairly low carbonation and a bitter / sweet finish.
Overall a Pale Ale for every day drinking. Eclipsed in most was by the bigger and bolder trend, it is still an easy drinking un pretentious example of an APA.
