On tap while hanging out in Seattle. Pours a deep bronze color with small white head. Smells of wet dog, some light sweet malt. Malt overpowers much of the expected citrus and pine hops, though not overly sweet. Caramel, bready malts and a crisp finish. Relatively light on the palate, with medium carbonation. Only okay.

Poured into pint shaker glass.Pours a cloudy orange amber, thin off-white head with moderate retention and a hint of lacing. Nice aroma of bready malt, slight citrus and hops. Taste is a well balanced biscuit malt with a hint of roastiness, light citrus hop finish. Medium bodied. A nice well rounded ale with no stand out flavors, but all are well integrated and pleasant to drink. This was an excellent accompaniment to my Italian dinner.

Fantastic taste on this one. Pours a solid deep burnt orange color with a pale head. Carbonation holds up pretty well and is balanced with a full mouth feel. Great pine sticky hop presence which gives a heat Seattle character. Overall a great ale that I will reach for again.

On tap on 2/26/12. Have had this a number of times and finally took the time to review it.

Appearance: Hazy golden straw color with a thin layer of foam that provided light lacing.

Smell: Fresh orange, lemon, and some sweet aromas.

Taste: Lightly glides over the palate with a honey sweetness and citrus flavors. Hops are mild with a very soft bitterness to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Feels light and clean on the palate and above average carbonation levels.

Overall: A mild, lightly hopped APA that is refreshing. This is all over the place in the Seattle area and a good transition beer for those that are new to craft. Glad it is an integral part of the scene here.

Another always on @ the Conway Tavern...

Poured into a standard Pint glass... Transparent Yellow colour with a thin white head... smell is hoppy goodness/very fuity in the mouth. very easy drinking pale ale leaning more towards the ipa zone imho. give it a try if you see the one on-tap around the great Pacific Northwest...
