Nitro in chilled pint glass at The Diller Room in Seattle. Orange color with thick white head and heavy lacing due to nitro. Mild smell with more malt than hops. Well balanced with pronounced hop flavor. I tend to prefer bigger beers, but opted for this as it was available on nitro. I like it.

On Nitro at the brewpub. Excellent mouthfeel and so easy to drink.

Taste is big, fresh pale malt with touches of pine and hemp. This is a nice and clean pale ale. An above average beer although there are others I prefer in the style. Definitely worth a try.
