COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pale that packs a punch! Foolish amounts of pale malted barley and a ton of fresh Pacific Northwest hops put this crowd favorite somewhere between a strong ale and a double IPA. Donít let the golden color fool you; this nugget weighs in at 7.8% ABV!!

Fatehunter (1384) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Poured from a growler filled the same day. Thin head on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma is honey with a lemon drop. Nice. The taste is moderate lemon bitterness, good balance thoughout. The texture is crisp with soft edges. Moderate carbonation. An enjoyable beer.

Fairly clear light gold in appearance. Nose is slightly piney with an almost grape-like aroma as well. Taste is sweet with an orange citrus flavor. Slightly peppery from the alcohol.

"pretty good overall, but lacking the punch to contend with the better strong ales out there. itís smooth, and lulls you into believing itís not as strong as it is, but itís a little on the boring side, although it does have both a malt & hop presence. interesting brew."

Nice aroma of yeast, biscuits. Nice ale for a hot summer day. Nothing really impressive about this beer, just your a little above average pale ale . Would not go out of the way for this one.

BeerFunGuy (739) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This beer has a golden color with a slightly reddish undertone. It pours with an incredibly thick white full bodied head. It has a citrusy aroma with hints of pine. It starts of with a good bite has a slightly sweet taste then finishes with that classic IPA aftertaste. Overall a very well done complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from bottle. A: biscuit, copper, floral and citrus hop note. A: golden straw color, very bright, lose white head with good retention. Very little lacing. T: citrus rind, bready, slight fruit cake, slight pineapple, slight copper, honey and alcohol on the tail end. P: slightly viscous, moderate carbonation, with a dry bitterness that covers up the alcohol. Slightly warming. O: good. Alcohol is well hidden by an emence bitterness. Not much going on but that though
