look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown with a best by freshness date.

LOOK: Bubbly white lace, tarnished golden colour

SMELL: Cascade hops, fruity, citric rind, mint, nutty grain, mild malt sweetness.

TASTE: Smooth, medium body, semi crisp malt, bready, mild fruit, faint esters, hop bitterness, citric peel, oranges, kiss of pine, finish semi-dry

A great pale ale to be had here, any hop head would be pleased and if you love cascade hops this is your ale! A great snapshot of what an PNW Pale Ale.
