Nearly perfect pale ale in my opinion. Very great balance. Not a large malt character but enough. Perfect hop finish. Nice carbonation makes for a refreshing drinking experience. If one was looking for a sessionable beer that still holds a lot of character and is simple but interesting. Easily could be a go-to pale ale.

Had from cask at the brewery in Seattle.

Pours a fresh, clear golden colour, very light weight, with a frothy, cracky and undeniably "casky" head of white. This leaves some patchy suds as it crackles and casks its way out of existence.

Bright mild fruit on the palate, giving perhaps a touch of mango, and stonefruit, with some peppery notes cutting through. Overall, it's pretty mild, but it's not unpleasant.

Light entry before more of that slightly sweet, slightly tropical fruit flavour mid-palate. Some mild, neutral grain comes through as well. On the finish we get a hint of metallic bite to add some sharpness, but everything has been smoothed and blunted.

Feel is great from the cask. Adds another layer of smoothness that it wouldn't have otherwise had.

Overall, a very decent drop. Smooth and light and very easy to drink. I probably like it more than these scores would indicate—it's a super drinkable beer that I'd love to have more regularly.
