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!

Fine hops flavor is what you get here, and this is the only one I took a growler of, being as the beer sampler had some nice brews, that’s saying something!

Draft. Nice deep red body with thin head. Aroma was a very pleasant blend of grapefruit and hops. Flavor was lightly hoppy with a nice sweet malt taste and a very smooth body. Possibly the best Pale Ale I’ve ever had!

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.

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?

[Cask, double dry-hopped] Poured a hazy amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, toffee, light toasty dough, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus fruits, light pine, some sweeter toffee, and a moderately bitter finish.

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.

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...

A nice amber color with a strong white head. A hoppy somewhat citrus aroma. The flavor has a sharp hoppiness to it, though not as strong as an IPA. There are hints of spice and fruit, perhaps leaning to an orange zest taste. I was hoping for even more hops, but this is still a crisp pale ale.

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.
