COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Draft... GBOA ’06... Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Earthy, fruity nose with apricot esters and notes of pine and wood. Earthy, well-balanced flavor with moderately bitter grapefruit rind and light residual sugar. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp, mildly bitter and grassy.

Thanks to by brother in law for getting me a grwoler of this. Pours slight hazy dark straw with a two-finger, creamy, off-white head. Great lace. Aroma of hops, citrus, malt, some black pepper, spiciness, and floral esters. Tastes very hoppy, with floral esters, black pepper, and a finishing semi-dry astringent hop resiny feel. I honestly thought this was an IPA before I sat down to rate it today. Regardless of what you call it, it is a fine beer. Is CH-47 a code for a hop variety or a hop-contained carbon-hydrogen bond or something?

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.

Nice creamy head, dark bronze-like color. Medium body. Aroma of hops and some citrus. Very hoppy taste. This beer tastes very similar to an IPA.
