One of the best pale ales in the Pacific Northwest, deserving of its self-identification as the original NWPA.

Pours an orange/copper with moderate head. Aroma is thick and florally fragrant, heavy with hoppy goodness. This beer's flavor is bold but smooth, more than the sum of its parts in the way that only perfectly balanced beers can be. The malt presence is strong without tasting "grainy", and the hops are citrus and pine without being astringent. A little on the fizzy side, making for good mouthfeel and bringing the flavors together pleasingly.

Two thumbs up--definitely a buy.

It's a bit heavy on the hops.
