Bottle from brewforia. A little light on aroma and flavor, and light on hops too. Good hot weather beer, nice mouth feel. Appearance rather dull, finish slightly metallic.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger's worth of white fizzy to foamy head that quickly dissipated. Barely any lace was there at all.
The smell had some citrus peel over some burnt biscuits and then a light breadiness.
The taste was semi-sweet through the biscuity/breadiness. Citrusy hops bend back further in the background, barely showing any presence.
The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light allowing the bready/biscuity malts to sweeten and lay down on my tongue.
Overall, I'm pretty sure this is an organic APA and one I'm not really impressed with. I'd rather seek other APA's before this.

The Wild Salmon Pale Ale is good.....it poured a hazy copper with thein white head that in leaving a spotty lace. The scent is faint....slight touch of citrus....not much else. The taste is ok....weak bitterness through out...grapefruit hints. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with ok carbonation. Overall it was worth a try.....but nothing spectacular.

A: darker amber hue. Brilliant copper caught my attention

S: Hoppy. Slightly alcoholic. This ale has a nice, crisp scent.

T: Hopped up like one of my favorite beers should be. It is a tad bitter, but thats how i like my pale ales. This one is refreshing, that is certain!

M: Perfect consistency. Remains on the palate, too.

O: better than their IPA in my opinion. Too bad very few places sell this stuff where I live. About to share one with a pal

355 ml bottle poured into a Red Racer pint glass. A cloudy dark honey amber hue with a finger of creamy off-white foam. Aroma is dry biscuit, a touch of caramel, and low key but fresh citrus rind (grapefruit, mostly?) and pine. A whiff of peach. Taste largely reflects the nose. Biscuit-like backbone, rather dry, with some robust lemon and yellow grapefruit notes, decent dose of pine resin, particularly in the dry finish. Admittedly, the finish is rather off ... Almost a muddled compost pile note. Medium body and carbonation. Very much a typical APA with a little extra pine heft. Might be too unassuming for many in this craft beer era of bigger = better.

I gave this 3 stars instead of 2.5 because it is not as bad as I thought it would be. Almost no aroma but a slight citrus bitterness in flavor throughout. It's more like a light pale ale. Wouldn't turn down a free one, but would not request it.
