On draft at a Tacoma Raineirs game. Deep copper pour with a creamy head. Citrus and malt aroma. Flavor follows with citrus hops and a strong malt backbone. A nice bit of grapefruit or mango here to go along with the caramelly malts. Finish is not as clean as I had hoped. Not bad and easy drinking brew that went well with baseball.

Serving type: on-tap

3.75/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Orange bronze shade with good head and lots of carbonation.

Smell: Malt and citrus.

Taste: Earthy hops, pine, citrus, caramel, and toasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, slight bitter aftertaste.

The Verdict: Very good. Everything a pale ale should be, with a good balance between malts and hops, sweet and bitter. Maybe not quite as good as Sierra Nevada or SweetWater, but it's not very far behind at all.

Serving type: bottle
