Iam really digging this brewery from the Palouse.Poured into an imperial pint glass orange infused lighter golden with a nice looking one finger craterous white headthat left multiple broken rings of lace as it settled rather slowly.Aromas constist of biscuit malt and leafy hops,a little light but pretty fresh.This beer won't hammer you over the head with hops but damn it has alot of really nice subtle hop complexity,plums and mint,along with leafiness over top of a sweetish caramel/biscuit base,there is a nice crispness in the finish.This is a damn fine APA,take the time to taste it and you'll be impressed with it.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date
LOOK: Clear golden straw hue, good display of lacing
SMELL: Spicy, biscuity, blood oranges, stone fruit, tobacco, parsley
TASTE: Very smooth, moderate sized body, slight crispness, mineral, earthy hop, citric rind, leafy, blonde tobacco, bitter resin, white peaches, very floral, dried grass, green peppercorns, very dry hoppy finish
Not your usual APA, a glimpse of what was perhaps the norm within the much smaller craft beer world with the simple use of Cluster hops ... if you remember that hop then you know what I am talking about. Yes, Cascade hops are very present but Cluster is a completely different world from what breweries are playing with today.

Pours a hazy orange color with a good two to three fingers of white foamy head. The aroma is fairly fresh and piney maybe a little citrus with the hops and malts about even and in balance, I didn't think it was overly hopped, unless you think Dale's Pale is overly hopped. Taste is a bit of biscuit and cascade hops are very apparent in the aroma but mild in bittering. Some astringency in the mouthfeel. Nothing really stands out here.

A: Pours a clear burnished copper with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin layer with little lacing.
S: Grapefruit notes along with dry pine aromas dominate with some underlying notes of sweeter citrus and caramel malts.
T: Grapefruit, citrus rind, and dry pine flavors dominate here in an earthy, dry, and only lightly bitter flavor.
M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is pretty light and drinkable for something that is fairly hoppy.
O: A solid pale ale overall that is easy to drink and enjoy, though it lacks some of the hop pungency that I like in my hoppy beers.

Amber with a good sized off white head. Good amount of lacings. Aroma is bready and some pine. Taste is quite bitter and yeasty. Astringent mouthfeel. Hops seemed to be overly bitter with the malts component too little. After doing a side by side with another well regarded Pale Ale the bitterness was less pronounced. Not a bad Pale but some off putting yeast components or brewing byproducts kept this off the top ten list.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A three finger off white and fluffy head hits the glass, holding on with lots of staying power. That head sits on a classic deep and clear amber body, but there is lots of fast rising cola like carbonation coming up. Not much of it sticking to the sides of the glass though.
A real light toasty airy malt emanates on first smell. A good light biscuity sense, and mild hop presence, and light tangerine citrus sweetness hiding. Pretty solid if subdued.
Real good biscuity mouthfeel and palate forward. Mid palate gives real nice wonderful toasty aromas, crackling and almost crackery with a dry presences. The sweetness comes next in the back on the swallow and there's a very noticeable hop action, but it plays second fiddle to this sweet malt profile. Almost chewy, but giving to a dry sense and airy malt, with a faint hint of orange sensing citrus hop action.
A real good solid pale ale, with a decent noticeable hop profile that doesn't overwhelm. Delicious!

I just have to say I love this beer. This is the first Northern Lights beer I have had and It is great.
I think it could be a bit less cloudy. But the hops really come through in the smell.
The taste is a bit more hoppy than I would have guessed. But being from eastern Washington it should be a bit more hoppy. ( right? ) It is very fresh and light. This is a great beer for a hot day.
I think the mouth feel is right on for a lighter beer like this one.
Drinkability? I wish I had bought more than one that is for sure!!

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some peach + apricot highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of spicy, herbal, and citrus/grapefruit pith hops over the top of some light aromas of biscuit malts.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of biscuit malts with just the lightest hint of caramel sweetness. That is followed by some moderate to strong flavors of earthy, herbal, and citrus/grapefruit hops that impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth bordering on creamy.
O: I found this beer to be quite enjoyable and one that I would definitely grab again. Easy to drink and almost sessionable.

Hands down, the best pale I've had on tap. Very hard to describe the perfect beer across genres: balanced without being modest, backstage, supporting actor. Medium bodied but still light on the uptake. Malt is upfront and hop bite behind: the first is plain biscuit, the last extra special bitter but no more. Tasted like someone really cared and adored the making. I love this beer.

Silent is a appropriate name, the smell is barely audible, taste has is almost Silent. Could be good for a really Hot Dry Texas day, if you like it dry and crisp on the end this one is for you. Silence is Golden to some but for now I will pass on this one.
