I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the Mcmenamins in Mill Creek, WA.

Appearance: pale orange hue with a touch of haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam. Quite nice!

Smell: light citrusy hop aroma with a little toasty malt. Subtle but nice.

Taste: rich toasty malt flavor with quite a bit of hoppy flavor, both bright and musty, with a good citrus character. Bitterness is on the high side but is balanced.

Mouthfeel: medium light body with an OK carbonation. Decently creamy.

Overall: a good drinkin' Northwest pale ale. I would have this beer again.

Pint at Thompsons Brewpup in Salem. $3.75 Golden /yellow beer with a small white bubbly head..,much like a lager. Aroma is more of the same but with maybe a bit o resiny hop. Good hoppy bite to the beer but a smooth rich golden malt toffee ending brings it in the golden arena. Nice smooth mouthfeel Ok blonde/pale ale.

On tap at the brewery, Crystal Ballroom, Portland.
Dark amber with tan film. 3.75
Lots of caramel with slight citrus and ominous staleness. 3.5
Big caramel - oxidyzed and malty both - burnt grass and slight lemon. 3.25
Medium, chewy, round. 3.5

Just awful. An English pale if anything: too big, too sweet, and no hops for an ISA. But also showing cloying caramel notes from oxidation, too. Drainpour. 3
