look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a moderate haze and a finger of frothy ivory foam. I think it's quite attractive.

Smell: toasty malt with a slight sweetness and herbal, floral and slightly fruity hops. A very interesting combination; I like it.

Taste: somewhat sweeter than the aroma, but still with a bit of a toasty edge. Hops are somewhat sharp, with a definite citrus character. Not your typical pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this beer gets bonus points for being interesting. It definitely has a je ne sais quoi that separates it from a lot of other pale ales; worth a try.

Clear golden amber with a substantial foam. Spritzy on the tongue. Pleasant aroma of citrus and green tea.

The overall impression is quite earthy and herbal, with a peculiar resiny taste. The first gulps made me wonder if this was a little off, even plasticky, but after some sipping the hoppy appeal asserts itself. It's not overly bitter, however, which keeps it out of the dank dungeon category.

A leafy and resiny brew with a fruity note of bitter cider apples. Modest bitter aftertaste. A little murky but quite drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen's Market in Mount Vernon, Wash.

Pint glass poured from a growler bought from Growl Movement in S.Salem $11 Clear copper/golden coloured ale with a nice sized thick and frothy off white head. Very fresh and strong hop aromas grapefruit and papaya with a touch of grass. Some breadiness from the malt. Taste is mainly pink grapefruit, lemon pith and grassy hop..with the malts appearing in the end but does not balance which is good for a hot early summer evening! Nice strong mouth feel..semi well carbonated and medium body. Very nice pale ale..maybe bordering on an ISA
