COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northwest twist on a Pale Ale, with a bright and deep golden color and a crisp citrusy nose. Although hop-forward, this ale is well balanced with a light, biscuity malt body that finishes dry. Balance and drinkability is what you will experience in this excellent session beer!

Draught at The Noble Fir, Seattle
Cloudy amber color with compact head. Classic American Pale Ale, dry, with paper and caramel flavor, and strong hopping, with some hop resins, light citrus fruits, a bit puckery.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On draught at Daily Grill in the Seattle Sheraton. This was brewed in honor of the Emerald City Comic Con. The beer pours a slightly hazy dark amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and caramel. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep caramel, dirty, large frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Moderate hoppy nose, citrus peel and pith.   Similar tongue, moderate breadiness.   Nice balance on the tongue, hoppy but not overly biting.   Very citrus oriented.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pale citrus hoppiness on the finish.   Middle of the road example, well balanced, solid.

Draft at the pine box. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a dense and wooly tan head. Big bright piney nose, lots of intense dimensional presence; bigger than some ipas for sure. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, toast, and lots of bright pine on the mid palate. Long sharp dry finish.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. We both rolled our bottles to loosen sediment. A lot broke free in mine. The result was a very dingy appearance that was kind of brownish copper. A nice beige head. The aroma is full of citrus fruit and especially grapefruit. The first sip gives the exact same thing. Big bitterness that is grapefruit zest. It is dry and bitter. After that I taste pineapple. By midglass that bitterness had moderated and more fruit took its place. A little malt, too, although this is very much hop forward. Tropical fruit grows toward the finish. And then the last 2 sips bring out some coconut. Where did that come from. I liked this beer. It was totally about the north west hops and they are very good.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a ridiculously thick pillowy white head on it. Nose is light and slightly hoppy with a few fruity citrus elements coming through. Taste is a little bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end and some citrus elements poking through. Decent beer.
