i am a sucker for sorachi ace hops, and i will be shocked if this beer isnt brimming with their creamy lemony oil aroma and vibrant fruitiness. the beer looks pretty regular, barley able to hold a short white head in a pint glass, but the nose is just fantastic, with the sorachi and even some mosaic or some other fruity foreign varietal are just bursting out. tangerine and lemon, but rich and creamy too, the hops are beautiful in this beer. the grain is medium weight, but the alcohol is perfectly light for a beer with this flavor profile that i just want to hammer several of. its easy drinking, but mostly because its delicious. i think its a little flat in feel honestly, could use more carbonation, but that would make this one of my favorite pale ales ever, and since i cant get it in this market, im okay with it having some element this is off a little. that way i wont miss it so much, but man are those hops glorious!

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a murky orange color with a thin cap of a little white foamy head. Not much lace, but what was there, slid into the beer. The aroma had some sweet to bitter grassy/floral/herbal grapefruit pulp and rind tones over a stiff piney hop backbone. Malts seemed there, but quaint and smooth. The flavor brought on the sweetness of the blend of hops to malts. Aftertaste was hop coated maltiness. Finish was semi-sticky but with a good sturdy sliding eloquence. The palate was medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt as projected. Hop abrasion doesn’t occur and a helpful smoothness seemed to let the hops just slide over my tongue. Overall, damn good APA, West coast styled to the fullest and would love to have another one if I could get it again!

I had this beer on-tap in my OBF pint glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: slightly hazy, rich orange hue with a light effervescence and a thin layer of white foam. I think it looks pretty good.

Smell: sweet, but not too sweet; a little bit tangeriney, a little bit grapefruity. Nice and light underlying malt character which works really well.

Taste: flavor is really good; hops are a little more herby than the aroma, but overall it's still very bright and balanced. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess. I like it.

Overall: very solid, quaffable pale ale; just an all-round great beer. I would love to have this again.
