Citrus and apricot aroma.Hazy, orange, gold color (but this is supposed to be bottle conditioned, so haze is good). Fruity flavor with touches of grapefruit and apricot. Maybe a bit of malt. Mouthfeel is full and foamy, but thins a bit. Finish is very light, but the hops are there.

Bottle, pale hazy orange-amber, citrus malty aroma. A nicely balanced APA that finishes clean and refreshing. Nothing *real* outstanding but very pleasant and now on my list to keep in the fridge.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2009 I was really surprised by this pale ale. it has both great flavor and a nice, soft bitterness - some citrus fruit tones. Great beer overall.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Not perfect but very smooth all around (and perfect for a hot day). Can definitely taste the hops, but not as hoppy as some pale ales from the NW.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Safeco Field. Medium amber, clear, little head. Aroma was caramel and undefined piney hops. Flavor was mild biscuit, perhaps a bit of spicy hops. Some citrus and earth. Bitter tinge, tocuh thin, and a bit of carbonation bite. Just sort of there. Consumed while watching the White Sox take the Mariners behind the woodshed.

A great orangish yellow color with a smooth and silky head. Great aroma and a great tasting beer. If you have had a hot day in the sun this is the beer to grab. Good use of mat and hops and the flavor is just killer. Mmmmmmm

From bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thin white head. Nose is light citrus hops. Flavor is bitter hops all the way from start to finish. Body is overly thin. A good drinker though.

Bottle. This pale copper colored ale has a surprizing flavor that seems to be a blend of malted fruit and hops. Quite pleasing. Very drinkable.
