3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean, clear, light-amber. A fine northwest pale ale featuring up-front citrusy-piney hops. Very similar aroma and flavor qualities to their IPA when drank side by side, the "little brother". Slightly bigger malt backbone than most pale ales, which is quite pleasing.

Clear amber color with a white sheen. Nice pine sap hoppy aroma. medium body. Pine and grapefruit hop flavors on a thin caramel malt base. Nicely bitter finish. Not too bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a lacy white head. Sweet citrus and pine nose. Light toffee and citrus taste with a lingering resinous finish. I have a hard time seeing the IBUs being as low as 37? Another nicely sessionable beer from Black Raven.
