Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice amber malt and hops backing in the aroma. Good crisp malt flavor the hops are vibrant this was a terrific Am Pale Ale. Nice citrus flavors and dry finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Can:   Vibrant amber, clear, large frothy off-white head, mild carbonation, fairly nice lacing.   Soft hoppy aroma, a little musty malts, smidgen of earth.   Not terribly hoppy up front, certainly pale for a Pale Ale.   However it is clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little citrus zest appears on the finish, otherwise soft lingering hops.   Seems like a straight forward clean example to me.   Not a big Pale Ale, but certainly commendable.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Nose of floral hops, nice moderately sweet malts, a hint of caramel, light citrus. Pours orange golden with a fairly nice frothy head. THe flavor is moderately sweet pale malts, caramel, floral and citrus hops in the finish. Nicely balanced between sweetness and hoppy. Very drinkable. Nice stuff.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2011
My first beer from this company - a solid if fairly basic pale ale. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with an enormous soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit spicy with notes of floral, herbal and piney hops. The flavor was dryish, tart and bitter with notes of grapefruit, pineapple, perfume and lemon. The finish was long, tangy, bitter and had lingering mixed hops. Medium body. Solid.

355ML Can. Pours a gorgeous orange in the glass. Picture perfect! Fruity aromas of grapefruit and pine. Citrus and pineapple fruit flavors up front with a slight hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Brilliant pale ale.

Very pleasant surprise. Found this at a little cafe in downtown Victoria. Hot day, a sandwich outside, and this little gem with lots of citrus and pine.
