COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our classic, award-winning American pale ale. Brewed in the tradition of early West Coast ales, it is light amber in color with a distinctive Northwest hop character.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Clear golden colour with a fast disappearing head. Little aroma of fruit and spice. Very great taste of malt and a good blend of hops. Also a great fresh aftertaste.

Pours a pale yellow with a nice head. The aroma is very much on the hop side. A bit of malt as well but mostly hops. The flavor is also very hoppy. Crisp and clean, the finish is quite dry.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at brew pub. Decent fruity aroma on the nose. Gold body with white head. Lemony flavor with a mild bittering. Smooth and suppose would be a crowd favorite on those haot summer days in the desert.

lb4lb (2495) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pale light gold color with a mild hop aroma. Medium hop flavor, but still light even for an APA. Nothing special, but very drinkable and crisp bubbly carbonation. Didn’t get a lot of interesting flavors out of this one.

Tap at cafe. Light golden in color. Bitter piney aroma. Fairly bitter compared to most APAs. Some citric bitterness.

On tap at Cafe and Casino LV. Clear golden color with a fast disappearing head. Little aroma of hops and spice. Very great taste of malt and a good blend of hops. Also a good fresh aftertaste.

unclemike (2214) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Clear and golden with a creamy-white head and intricate lace. Nice palate -- creamy and smooth. Light caramel sweetness in the malts. Flowery hops with a decent bitterness level. Pretty good balance

jb (2158) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Malty sweet nose. Palate is grainy but with some hippiness. This is so so.

Orange-amber with a nice foamy white head... Aroma is citrusy and sweet... Flavor is fairly dry, with a nice initial sweetness and finishes with a nice piney hops bitterness... Pretty good pale
