COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our namesake ale represents everything a good, well balanced pale ale should be: malty but not to sweet, refreshing but not too bitter, full-bodied but not too heavy, lively but not over carbonated. A clean, everyday beer that leaves your palate begging for more. 1.054 OG 32 IBU 5.5%ABV

On tap at Alpine, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is pretty bland and lifeless, with biscuity malt and a light hop character. Flavour brings out light floral hops and biscuity malt. Very light and pretty flavourless. Clean and drinkable - just boring.

Bottle. I thought this was just OK. The hops aren’t coming through enough for me and there’s not much to really separate it from any old APA. Not a beer I’d turn down but nothing I’d seek out again.

Ferris (3002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle - A little grain and sweet pale malts. Clear copper with a good white rich head. Hope forward bitterness, with some grain and a touch of pale malt. A nice APA.

RABinCO (1157) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Copied from adnielsen because i’m lazy/he said exactly what i was thinking. Pours a golden orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly herbal, a bit woody, grassy, slightly spicy aroma. Mild citrusy, chewy herbal, light veggie, slightly toasty malty, straw flavor. Quite a disappointment.

Steve_0 (2537) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle at the Avery Barrel Release. Pour is clear golden in appearance with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, straw, biscuit, a touch of citrus, and wet dog in the aroma. Taste easy drinking, grassy, biscuit, straw, light weed, and dough with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Really kind-of meh.

Peacehammer (616) - California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
clear gold color. Crisp malt aroma with a touch of hops. Very light and refreshing. Excellently character for a pale ale with a nice hop undertone and finishing bitterness. I’m a big fan.
