A friend brought me a bottle of this from Oregon. Thanks Josh. This pale ale pours a very clean amber hue, with very good carbonation. An ever so minute white head, with no apparent lacing.

Smells of freshly sliced grapefuit and the evervescent cascade hop. Nice flowery aromas live underneath.

Very easy drinker. Hops aren't as out front as I prefer and not nearly as much as the aroma would lead you to believe. However this beer is very well balanced, clean, sharp, and refreshing.
