Probably more an IPA. Very rich hop aroma and earthy flavor of grain. Enjoyable beer

Grabbed this in a shaped, fluted 20oz glass at one of the bars at the Spokane Airport.

A:: Cloudy orange with a decent amount of off-white head and lace.

S: Pungent, pithy citrus. Buried sweet orange (marmalade? Clementine?) character. Nice hop notes here, just enough of a malt backbone to balance.

T: Follows the nose, some faint malt and maybe some caramel? There is some sweetness. Citrus, citrus pith, even hints of pine here. Medium bitterness.

MF: Nearly medium bodied with a dry finish.

O: This is decent, definitely enough hop character for an APA. I like the hops chosen for this one too, good citrus notes throughout. Not a bad local, small brewery selection.

Tasted this at the Iron Goat tasting room. I believe it was the first time they'd brewed it.

Poured a pale orange with not much head due to it being very cold and filled to the top.

Reviewing from memory here but the aroma was a little muted. That could have been a factor of timing and temperature as well as the glassware being used.

Overall a very good go-to pale ale that I'll be ordering again in the future.
