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!

Bottle courtesy of HypoLuxa at Asahiya.. A lovely golden copper pour with a foamy beige head with staying power. A great tropical fruit hop bouquet wafts from the glass. Medium full bodied with a zesty mouthfeel like a spritzer. The taste is well-balanced between fruity hops, piney notes & biscuity malts. Love the label love & the flavor.

trujahwarrior (504) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bomber, pours a slightly hazy orange color with a fizzy white head that faded quickly and leaves spotty soapy lacing. Smells of pine, citrus and caramel. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with great carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this is a pretty solid pale ale. Well balanced flavor and stays true to the northwest style. Brewed for ECC this year. Wish it was available year round.

Bookseeb (109) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Appearance has a slightly hazy orange amber supporting a thin dissipating head leaving spotty lace. Smell has a nice balance of sweet caramel malt and the citrus aroma of the hops. Taste has the citrus hop coming forward and carrying throughout followed by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A good pale ale, could almost be if not already an IPA.

Dogbrick (7585) - 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.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2013
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.

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.
