Nice beer. Actually a great pale ale. I am not a huge pale ale fan but this beer is great. One of my favorite pale ales out there. Smell is nice with hop and flower.
Taste is classic hop with barley showing in it. Perfect amount for my taste.
Smooth flavor.

Great beer. Thanks.

A: Orange-amber clear colored beer when poured into my Founder's imperial pint glass. Frothy white head with excellent retention and moderate lacing.
S: Floral, citrus, breadiness aromas strike the nose at different times.
T : Cascade hoppiness is evident. Citrus and pine flavors with solid but not overpowering malt backbone. Clean dry finish without much bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean beer.
O: Very drinkable APA that is sessionable. I enjoyed it and will have another.

On tap in SF - Really clean tasting, slightly fruity pale ale. Not overpowering at all. Just pure spring water with wholesome beer goodness. Hopefully this is as good in a bottle and hopefully it will make its way to this side of the Mississippi soon.
