This is a very good pale ale in my opinion. Golden amber in color, clear, with a creamy head. A fair amount of lacing. There is a light floral note in the aroma, as well as some citrus and malt. The flavor is well balanced between the malt and hops. A bit of bread like malt and some citrus and floral hops. Very smooth and drinkable. Crisp finish and juicy mouthfeel. Definitely worth trying.

laurelwood does well with this nice sorta-session pale ale. Loads of malty flavor and good hop backing. Absolutely gorgeous fluffy head. Just a damn good summer quaff.

Handsome golden amber brew with an enthusiasm of foam. Lively, sudsy mouthfeel. Resiny and flowery aromatics.

Malty and surprisingly rich. A touch of that musty hop taste with a hint of tannins. Some malty sweetness, but more on the tangy side. Not very bitter, but a lingering fruity hop taste. All very refined-- neither acidic nor overly bitter.

This makes an excellent quaff with all the right beery notes. From the 22 oz bottle.

NOT RETIRED
22 oz bomber bought at "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.99 Pours a lighter amber colour with a large thick and frothy off white head. Good aromas of cascade hops and caramel type malts. Straightforward ! Taste is similar to aroma..balanced well but a good showing of malts. Mouth feel is OK average for style. Not a lot to say about this one..just a good old fashioned APA
