Picked this up in a bottle from the brewery. Really great toasted malt aroma. Huge biscuit malt backbone - very toasty with lots of great, grainy components. Very light, lemony citrus notes with a slight grassy piece that is just present for a second before being swamped by the malt on the finish. Great floral hop component. Really great drink.

On tap at the brewery in U-District, Seattle, WA--Poured a hazy golden copper-amber body with an thin whitish head. Fruity, citrus and biscuit nose. With a few sips there was more of a floral hoppiness evident. Prickly carbonic alpha hoppy mouthfeel. Not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp golden pour from the bottle with minimal head. Light grain aroma. A wonderful session beer with just enough hops and a mild bitterness. Clean malt balances well. An easy beer to overlook, but really quite lovely.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery.
I suppose that every brewpub needs a gateway beer. Fairly grainy toast-and-caramel malt aroma and comparable flavor, with nice notes of particularly pineapple and also peach coming through from the hops in rather subtle but nice fashion. Basically, nicely hopped, but you could do better with almost any of the other beers on tap here at on any given day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery. Pours an amber color with a small white head on top. Aroma is mixture of caramel malts and citrusy hops. The aroma is faint in comparison to the IPA I had sampled. Flavor is crisp and light with citrusy flavors hitting the tongue. Needs a little bit more of a kick on the flavor profile but a very drinkable beer.
