Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.40% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Not to be confused with their English Style Pale.

"Our Pale Ale has a fresh, hoppy aroma that comes from two (top secret) Northwest hop varieties, while two-row Pale and Crystal malt give it a mild sweetness that finishes clean and crisp. Feeling out of whack? Put on some music, crack a Pale Ale, and readjust your balance.

ABV 5.4% IBU 37"

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I always like to see "independently owned" on a label so I picked this one up. Also, a fan of sailing. Not necessarily a good reason to buy a beer, but it is what it is.

Pours a nice golden and clear hue, but the light and wispy head is uneven, with pockets of large bubbles. Laces are weak.

Smells of citrus, grassy hops, and other floral aromas. Hmm, Oregon right? Smells like it.

Taste is upfront biting, with strong hop notes and very active carbonation, but aftertaste is watery and loose. Yet, it does not stick to the palate, so it balances out. Again flavors of citrus fruit and grassy hops.

As I drink this on a warm spring evening, I dream of summer nights where this beer would be ideal for a refreshing but not too heavy option on a New England beach or roof-top party.

Bottle poured into a pint glass

A-deep copper color, 1/4 inch white head

S-slight sweet aroma, don't know what except it smells delicious

T-again, being new at this I'm having a hard time describing it. The nice flavor is even better than the nice smell. I do taste a balanced variety of different flavors

M-not watery, good carbonation

O-a good pale ale, over all good in ever sense
