A: The pour is a hazy, pale golden color with a fluffy white head and amazing lazing. S: The smell is very citrusy, mostly orange and lemon, along with a fair amount of spicy hops. The malt smell is present, but definitely not the main attraction. T: The taste is fairly light, but enjoyable. There are the same citrus and spicy hop flavors that were present in the nose, and a nice bready malt. M: The body is a bit thin and light, and the carbonation is quite abundant. D: This is a great session pale ale. I haven’t had one of these in quite awhile, but I remember why I used to enjoy it so much.

Dedollewaitor (15435) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2007
Unclear gold with a white head. Malts & bitter fruity hops in the aroma. Medium body. Nice maltiness & yeast that goes well with the good amount of hops. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice!

Oakes (15325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2000
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Light amber, always has a decent head. Foresty cascade aroma, lightly toasted biscuits, vague lemon, salmonberries. Moderate bitterness - I wonder how I would have described that in '75, maybe ULTRA HOP JUICE SO BITTER I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO TASTE AGAIN - how the times have changed. Hoppy, fruity, with a light yeast note and light background malts. Though its hop content is not the shocker it once must have been, it succeeds today on its balance, which remains wonderful. Simple and classy, a deserving standard-bearer for the micro movement.

Aroma of piney hop, don’t detect citrus. Darkish gold color with a decent white head that has a bit of staying power. Starts with a bit of citrus, then pine, malt is in the mix, but this is a substantial mouthfeel with hop. Well balanced. Not your NW hophead treat.
