A: pours up a delicious-looking cloudy burnt honey color with a nice creamy 1 finger head.

S: Scents of citrus and herbal hops come through, a solid biscuity character, lemongrass, grains. Very nice.

T: The citrus character is immediately dominant and there's an acidic bite to it, the astringency and bitterness of lemon peel, yeast and bread. Herbal bitterness lingers through the end. Although the flavor doesn't seem to quite live up to the nose.

M: Full and satisfying body. Carbo is just right.

O: I like this beer overall. It has a personality, it seems like a very genuine ale, for what it's worth.

Sierra Nevada was my old standard by which I rated all Pale Ales, This one just knocked Sierra Nevada off the pedestal. A good solid Pale Ale. I drank this one with two friends, one from Seattle and one from California, both do not like IPA's and other hoppy Ales but they both enjoyed this brew. We had a good time enjoying this one together.

12oz can (no dates or codes) into a tulip. Pours a clear coppery honey color w/ a fluffy off-white head, leaves behind a good coat of lace.

Aroma is mostly floral NW hops.

Taste is bready pale malt and spicy, floral NW hops. A nice mellow balance, easy drinking. A good citrusy twang in there too.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, smooth w/ a gentle bitter kick on the finish.

Overall a simple, understated session NW pale ale that takes me back a few years.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head on top. Not much retention with sporadic lacing.

S: Light citrus, some orange peel and lemon with some caramel and faint pine.

T: Similar to the aroma, a bit of citrus upfront - some orange and grapefruit, with a hefty amount of grainy and caramel malt.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: A decent pale ale, easy drinking and smooth. A little on the malty side.
