Pours amber, thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Nice caramel malt backbone with grapefruitty bitterness. Bitterness is relatively light. Not spectacular, but I really enjoyed this.

Bottle from Ken (kenb) Thanks! Pours out an amber color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, pine, hint of grapefruit, some grass, and malts. Taste is similar, with a nice citrus flavor that makes it very easy to drink. This would be my session beer if I lived in Oregon. Thanks!

Bottle. Amber beer with a thin off-white head. Citrus and slight caramel aroma. Orange citrus flavor with decent pale ale bitterness. Very drinkable - refreshing. Flavors fade fairly quickly. Nothing real bad, but nothing to make it stand out.

On tap, good American pale ale with that distinctive aroma and flavor of citrus and mint. Slightly hoppier than most but a good combination of malt and hop flavors. Nice golden hazy color. I could drink several of these.

i am not a fan of the pale ales, however, this is a great beer. definitely citrus aroma, with hops and citrus in the taste. a bit of aftertaste that is almost sour.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 12 OZ BOTTLE FROM local grocer. Very fresh citus aroma. Hazy deep copper color. Very large head. Lots of lace. Very nice fruity hoppy taste. Very smooth. Full bodied yet I feel i could drink several of these. Citrusy aftertaste that lingers just the right amount of time. This is a very well hopped and balanced pale ale.

On tap pours hazy golden with a nice white head. Aromas of carmel and floral hop. Taste of mostly carmel malts and a nice hop finish. A nice easy drinking pale ale to get started with.

A decent pale ale. Not too sweet and floral and slightly bitter. Long lasting hop taste with alot of malty notes. Aroma is fruity, malty, and slightly astringent. The taste is of sweet corn, berries, and malts. Well done, but a little bit on the bitter side.

Draft in Billings, MT. Hazy copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
