Originally reviewed on October 7, 2006. On tap at the brewpub. Deeply clouded artificial orange soda pop apperance. Rim of greasy white. Blast of raw, unbridled Cascade glands. A heavy dose of West Coast destruction. More florally orange, then piney. Flavor is a rich sweet fruity full blast of tingle Amarillo/Cascade sweetness. Grapefruit and candied apples. A very raw and forward hop presentation. Pleasant. Palate is a tingle bite, with full long grassy draws. A quite drinkable version

A very hazy, almost opaque light golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was light and had fruit, floral, and malt characteristics. Flavor followed with the balance a little to light on the hops for a pale. Fairly thin mouthfeel and low bitterness.

Color is a very hazy deep yellow with a small thin white head of super tight foam leaving super tiny dots of lace with some webbyness closer to the bottom. Smell is a nice light citrusy/piney hop, very fresh and clean. Taste is more of the same with a pretty steady amount of hops, citrusy light and a bit astringent, but still pretty easy and smooth, has a good bite and bitterness. Feel is medium bodied and a bit gritty/grainy, bitterness sticks a bit in the end. Not a bad pale at all, have one with a sandwich, goes perfect.

Good crisp taste. I'd say a tad on the hoppy side of what I call a pale ale but very drinkable!
