Notes/Commercial Description:
Our American style Pale Ale is a hop lover's dream. We craft this copper colored ale to supply a moderate bitterness and an aggressive hop flavor and aroma. Willamette hops pitched early in the boil give a clean, soft bitterness. Late kettle hops include Northern Brewer, Simcoe, and Chinook for plenty of pungent pine and citrus character. Judicious amounts of four specialty malts add counter and depth. Expect a medium bodied brew with an assertive, complex flavor and a dry finish.

3.15/5  rDev -12.3%

Undated 12 oz bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of citrusy hops
Head average (3 cm), white, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing to 1 cm ring and 2 mm layer.
Lacing – none
Body light orange, clear
Flavor – distinctly malty with some hop bitterness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

Seems rather malty for a pale ale, but not bad. Very nice head and body but no lacing detracts from the appearance. Definitely a distant second to SNPA.
