Enjoying this beer on-tap at an Irish pub in Seattleas my wife and I arrived here on vacation earlier today. Served in a clear plastic pint glass, this beer draws a fairly clear, slightly cloudy/hazy color with a nice white head that's about 2/3 to 3/4 of an inch thick when first served to me. Head eventually settled to a fairly thick ring lining the inside of my glass along with a bit of lacing. Aromas of toasted, caramel malt sweetness along with some earthy, piney hops. The taste is pretty much the same, with moderately toasted, breadth caramel malt sweetness that gives way to the aforementioned earthy, piney and slightly citrusy hops that give this a nice bitterness on the back end to balance the flavor profile out all around. Has a somewhat crisp, slightly prickly, somewhat smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink inbthebrightvway a beer of this style ought to be. Glad I got a chance to try this one on St. Patty's Day!

A: Moderate citrusy-piney, grassy hops, accompanied by some grainy malt

A: Hazy, amber/orangish color with a thin white head that has moderate retention. Some lacing evident.

T: Moderate citrusy-piney, grassy hops, with moderate malt sweetness. The beer has a moderate hop bitterness and a semi-dry finish.

M: Med-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Alright. The beer is sessionable, however it finishes a bit sweet and has too much of a lingering hop bitterness.

Absolutely gorgeous beer, cloudy amber with medium creamy head, good lacing all around the glass. Aroma of malt and fruit, Taste is slightly sweet malt, bread and more fruit (apples?). Abrupt finish, medium weight body, easy to drink.

On tap in Seattle airport.
This was in a pint glass.
The appearance had a hazy orange brown body, no head, no lacing, no transparency. The smell had a strong grassiness up front, lightly hopped. The taste was mainly bitter as the hops take over, grassy bitter aftertaste, sticky finish. On the palate, it sat about at a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation is spot on for the style and for me. Overall, good APA I’d have it again.

On tap at Restobar 1285 in Florence, Oregon; this Pale ale was golden straw with a slight haze, subtitle hops in the nose and an inviting creamy mouth feel. The hops are laid back an do not make you wonder if this is an IPA as they are gently supported by the malts in this pale. Not your typical Northwest hop slam pale, Manny's is refreshing, very approachable, and paired well with the steamed littleneck clams I had for lunch.

Just one of the Georgetown brews I am starting to like... a lot!

Not great, kinda skunky, might just be the place, trace in seattle, but underwhelmed, kinda bland for a pale ale.
