look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours out with a nice silky, lasting head. All else is pretty average, faint hoppy aroma, citrus, taste is grapefruit, but kind of flat, not much of a finish, bordering on watery.

Amber orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit citrusy, guaranĂ¡ and caramels.
Bitter flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, resin, grass, a bit of toasted malts, orange-lemon, candy and spices. Hops feel slightly dank. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Somewhat powerful APA with lots of pine resin and citrusy notes. Unidimensional, though.

Had from a 12oz can purchased in Portland, OR

Pours a mostly clear coppery-amber hue with a formidable and promising white head that showed great initial retention. However, it does dissipate and eventually leaves little more than a thin lacing.

Big aromas of lightly toasted grain, fresh bread, grapefruit, pine resin, orange and other citrus, and a subtle dankness.

All of the aromas come through on the palate as well, and the brew sports a nice bitterness from the hops on the finish. Not heavy handed at all though.

My only criticism is that it may be a little thin on the palate. However, if it had more body, it probably wouldn't be as refreshing. Very nice stuff. Could easily be used as a session ale. Just drained two straight out of work and I'm tempted to pop a third.

12 oz can from a sixer bought in a Ma and Pa convenience store in S. Salem. $8.99 Nice lighter amber coloured ale with an attractive thick and creamy off white head. Pretty regular citrus/onion hop aromas. Very balanced creamy almost flavour here..a true amalgamation of UK/USA Nice creamy smooth mouth feel. Good understated Pale.

A) Poured from a can into glassware this brew is a work of art, a nice 2.5 finger head that quickly dies down into nice lacing on the glass and the top of the beer. Clear, copper-amber color.

S) Hop forward with citrusy lemon, pine, candy-like sweetness, and slight notes of burnt toast

T) Hops take charge, a lot like the bouquet with juicy citrus flavors. The malt comes through on the finish with some burnt caramel and honey flavors that balance the hops well.

M) A little thinner than I thought it would be but still acceptable, carbonation is good. Semi-dry finish, all around pretty drinkable.

O) A good pale ale that shows it's Pacific NW roots with the generous amount of hops that must have went into this. Flavors are good but a little one dimensional making but this is still a "worthy" brew for any fan of juicy citrus hops. Overall I prefer their IPA over this one.

Clear amber with two fingers of white head. Good amount of lacing. Smell is all bready malt.
Taste is malt forward with a bit of pine and leather for the hop flavor.
Mouthfeel is light for the 6.0 abv.
Overall a tasty brew but could use more hops and body.
Update: Hazy amber with a quickly receding white head that leaves a good amount of lace as it drops. Still a bready malt forward beer but has enough hop bitterness to remain in style. Mouthfeel is closer to medium and carbonation is just enough. I think I would bump the rating to a 3.75 from my original rating. Give it a try folks. Update is June 9, 2015.
