This beer had me tricked for a minute. It appeared to be a lager, as it was a very clear and golden pint. However, the smell left no questions. The strong and fresh hop aroma were prominent, and it translated into a very strong and fresh hop taste. This beer gives the same citrus quench and saliva gland drying properies I've come to expect from an IPA. I could have easily drank many more, but I had to drive.

A middle of the road IPA, particularly for the Pacific Northwest. It has a pale gold body with a soft white head. The aroma and flavor profile reminds me a bit more of an ESB than a hopped-up IPA. Sweet malt, with a slight bite of hop bitterness. This ale appears a bit toned-down for some reason.

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is floral hops. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are slightly fruity. Hops are floral and somewhat bitter. A lighter and flavorful IPA. Not the typical Pac NW IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Had this and forgot to review it....

Not sure why more peeps don't rate McM ales... I always liked them, even tho they are run of the mill for the PNW...

Poured in nitro, which I prefer with this beer, and the location being across from my office is too convenient !

L- golden with a dusting of cloudiness, good , but low head , lots of foam stuck to the glass
S- even keel with a bit of a soapy, yeasty smell. Not much fragrance for an IPA
T- very malty, with citrus notes, but not strong... Has a smooth Rainey, semolina flour taste, unexpected
F- super smooth on nitro, even carbonatuon, with a foamy thickness
O- I'm a sucker for Norris, and a big sucker for IPAs so this will be an easy choice at this establshmen...
