this is a standard pale ale which is pretty good. some citrus pine characteristics that are subtle but not in your face. balanced quite well with the malt back bone. not hopped as much as i probably like.

Watery golden in color. Some slight soapy hops smell and flavor. Bubbly and thin. Some bitterness in the finish - but nothing special. Just okay to me.

Sampler at Big Dog’s Brewery. Seemingly smooth - actually smells and tastes like a mild IPA.

Light golden color with unusually low hop aroma considering Cascade hopped. Minimal body and taste. Cascades are definitely apparent in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with huge creamy whitish 3 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet toffee, caramel, pale malts. Hops are grapefruit, orange, lemon and tings of alcohol. Taste are hoppy forward with grapefruit, lemon, slight pine. Malts are light sweetness with pale, crystal, hints of candi. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light-meduim body, lasting hoppy slightly slick feel with good balance. A good local pale, taste better fresh than in the bottle.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma was light and flowery. The look was very clear and straw colored with a small white head. Taste was a refreshing hop taste with notes of pine and earth. It left a good bitterness on the palate. Average Pale Ale and a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Light amber color, thick white head that diminishes to a thin layer. Good lacing. Aromas of fruity hops and earthy malts. Taste seems mostly malty to me, some fruitiness and just a hint of bittnerness. Slight bitterness lingers but finish is nothing to remember. Fairly light and should be easy to finish the growler.

I was so disappointed by this beer. I really think it is a mistake to characterize this beer as a pale. The taste is nothing but the coffee/chocolate of a weak stout. The hops are almost undetectable, and that is what seems to be lacking.
