12 oz bottle into pint glass. This is my favorite pale ale. Every other ale pales in comparison. Ha! This beer has a wonderfully balanced flavor and mouthfeel, and the low ABV allows one to drown the stomach in a short period of time if one is not careful.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Green Flash Imperial Pint glass. Lovely light copper color. Nice inch head or so. Smell is floral, fresh, piney hops. Pine really stands out to me. Taste is refreshing and mildly hoppy. Wonderful American Pale Ale. Had the pleasure to go to the brewery in Bend and it's even better there. Cheers!
