look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Serving: On tap in a sampler on the 'tour' at the Woodinville, WA brewhouse
Served: 4 July 2015

Appearance: Pours a nice, saturated, goldenrod yellow with a soft, soapy, white head that quickly collapses into just a sheen of bubbles around the edges.

Smell: Yikes, this one smells like dank- and I mean DANK- hops and corny sweetness. Mildewed hops and cheap beer. Uh oh.

Taste: Not much better than the smell, to be honest. I could not quite stomach this one. The dank, fuzzy hoppiness was really unpleasant and the overly sweet malts didn't help the matter a bit.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Solid for the style.

Overall: Not a good APA at all. Would not recommend.

It's an ok beer. The dark color led me to believe it would be more flavorful than it was.

As far as easy drinkers go, this is the beer for me when I'm pounding them.

This is better than a macro - but not much.

Terribly disappointing. Thin and weak. A very poor pale ale. I could stand this beer if it was an AAL, but it's not marketed or priced as such.

Unimpressive as a pale ale. Malts are largely forgettable, not nearly enough of a hop bite to belong in this category. Appearance wise it seems artificially dark, given how aqueous it tastes.

Just about as ordinary as one can get. If it were labeled Bud Light, I would have no complaints, but it is not so labeled. I expect more from producers branding themselves as 'craft beers'.

12oz bottle poured into a pint

A- pours a clear golden color with a small fuzzy white head that reduces to a thin film on top, leaving behind a few patches of lace

S- smells like an adjunct lager, grainy, toasted malt, just a hint of grassy hop

T- a bit of sweet malt up front, eventually turns to some notes of toasted grains, faint grassy hops on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy finish

O- this is about as plain as a pale ale can get, marketing towards bid light drinkers
