This light copper, dry finishing American Pale Ale is an excellent addition to the Brew Works fleet of pale ales. A hefty sling load weight of Chinook hops gives this beer its distinctive bite. Chinook and Amarillo hops contribute to its almost citrus aroma. A hopheads delight!

On tap at BBW. Almost no aroma. Copper amber color. Darker than I expected. A tad hoppy upfront but toasted malt flavor shines through. Fresh clean dry finish. Pretty good and very drinkable. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask for charity night at the Brew Works. A nice sparkling pale ale with a small head. A little bit cloudy from cask, served at cellar temp. Exceptionally smooth creamy palate. Refreshing hoppy character from this amazingly fresh cask beer. Excellent, I had two!

The beer is full of beautiful malty caramel aromas, toasty, full of excellently balanced floral hops. The appearance is an orange amber color, slight off clear haze, with an appropriate light white head. The taste is full of excellent malt bodies exceptionally balanced with floral hops. The bitterness is light and a savory umami is here. A true tasting enjoyment. The feel is super smooth. The body is light to medium, with a creamy texture. The finish is long and silky smooth. The beer is very soft and warming, a true pale ale champion.

Draft - Clear gold, thin white creamy head. Soft fresh pine and grapefruit aromas ride undertones of sweet malt throughout. Earthed pine and citric hop flavors balance well on a light caramel backbone. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. A well constructed pale ale...

On tap at the Bethlehem location. Poured a medium amberish color with a medium sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, toasted malts, and pine. Tastes of citrus (more than the aromas), pine, and some caramel.

Draft at the brewpub. Well out of my six beer sampler, which was very reasonably priced for the size samples you get, this one was the best by far. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with an average size fluffy white head that lasted for quite sometime as my pint sat there and I finsihed off some other sample size beers. Aroma has lots of grapefruit and citrus with some biscuit notes from the malts. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation and a slightly dry finsih. Flavor of citrus rind that is rather bitter with some biscuit and toast. This beer is just slightly dry and comes off with a good touch of bitterness but still enjoyable none the less.

On tap at BBW. Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine, floral and bread along with other citrus notes. Flavor of caramel malt, bready, pine, grapefruit, floral and orange.

I thought this was a nice pale ale. had a nice surprising hop presence to it, the amarillo seem to give it a good light citrus element. nice body, good overall.
