Our interpretation of a "table" American Pale Ale. Hopped with Ahtanum and Falconer’s Flight.

On tap at the source Mostly clear light golden color with a huge bubbly head. Earthy pine with a very slight Belgian yeasty or plastic phenol. Wicked carbonic bite on the tongue. Decent but seems way over carbonated as did the other beer I tried today.

Sampled that the brewery. Golden in color with a white head. Aroma is mild hops and flavor is nice mix of malt and hop bitterness/flavor... not great, but good.

Draft at the brewery. Pours almost clear gold with a thin white head. Tastes like dry pine, hippy. Champagne, grapefruit, grainy flavor. Dry feel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like resin, musk, and some light sweet fruit.

750ml growler in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops plus a nice pale maltiness to balance it out. Very dry and hoppy for a pale ale. Average texture. A pretty good pale ale.
