UPDATED: MAY 3, 2008 From tap in bar glass. A fine smoothness for a pale ale. Dense hop presence throughout but not overwhelming. The bite plays nicely with the malt. Satisfying finish without the offensive macho aggressiveness often found in other PAs. Clearly an above average pale ale here. Recommended.

Context may have help this one - first tried it after a long hike in Glacier Np. Regardless, a great well-balanced pale with enough complexity to keep me interested.

This was a pretty good pale ale but not that extraordinary. I would try this again though.

WBF. Didn’t take really good notes for this one. I remember it being decent, nothing special. Standard american pale ale, moderate hop presence and a decent malt balance.

I really liked this beer. Good hop aroma, good hop taste, not to malty, bitter. Cascades really come through. I would love to drink this again.

Subtle aroma of citrus, malt, and hops. Starts smooth ends slightly bitter, good balance. Tastes closer to an IPA to me. Very drinkable.

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.

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.

Light caramel notes mixed with citrus hops. Smooth on the palate with light sweet notes throughout. Hop finish.
