Bottle. I remember this beer being much better on tap. Not as dynamic in the bottle. Pours a nice roasted orange with thin white head. Tame malt and hops. On tap, I believe there is more hop and citrus flavor. The Inversion is more interesting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this beer on 8/11/2004. Aroma is a fresh hop scent. Color is a deep brought gold with good carbonation and a thick head. Taste is metallic, hoppy and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth. Finish starts out with a mildly sharp malt flavor that is somewhat sweet, this is followed by a nice hop flavor and an even bitterness. This is just a nice well balanced Pale.

It’s not often you find something so indifferent to what it’s supposed to be. This pale ale says I can be pale, copper and amber all in the same day. Just drink a whole bunch of me and you’ll see.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 12oz bottle-Aroma of hops on a light amber body. Taste of hops and citrus with a citrusy finish. Not bad but I don’t consider this a pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had both in a bottle and on tap. The tap serving was far better. Light amber color with a thin white head. Fresh Cascade hop aroma with some fruity backgrounds. The bottle sample was actually quite bland compared to the tap serving. The tap serving had a nice balanced robust hop character that was most evident in the finish. Very drinkable when fresh. The bottle I had would’ve rated out at a 3.1.

hazy orange-brown body with nice and quiet, lacy, off-white head; smooth drink with enough flavor--peanut, citrus, sweet then bitter, but always refreshing; tingly, bittersweet, refreshing... good brew!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear gold/orange with some head that leaves a good bit of lacing. Nose is hoppy and sweet. Taste is heavy with hops with a firm citric/sweet edge to it. Almost like a cross between a lemon and an orange. Feel is what you’d expect - has a little carbonation to it, and it feels good on the tongue. Extremely drinkable.

bottled. Not much going on here. Slightly bitter but otherwise lacking in taste. Seemed "soapy" to me.
