This was a very solid session pale ale. The beer’s deep amber/gold colour was very promising as was the strong hop nose. This not the hoppiest of pale ales, but it is good. The mouthfeel improved greatly as the carbonation which seemed excessive at first died down. Nice resiny taste of hops leaning towards the citrus side with sweet malty notes as well. I wish I had more.

Amber body with an off white head. Lots of hops in the nose at first fades a bit. Citrusy resiny hops. Flavour is nice, but lacks the hop intensity implied by the aroma but still has enough to be quite pleasant. Thin but passable body. Nice beer overall, could use a dose of hops for the hopheads but it is a very well balanced, very drinkable pale ale. Thanks for sharing Mustang3.

Light amber color with a moderate light cream colored head. Light malt with hints of oranges and pine in the background. Light sweet start with more Orange citric flavors. Fairly light and fruity.

Pours lite amber with a nice fluffy head. Very citrusy aroma. Medium body. Some resiny, piney flavors followed by a great rush of citrus. Nice lingering bitterness. A great APA.

Orange appearance and an easy drinking beer -- too thin, mildly hopped and citrusy.

Light orange in color with a small white head. Aroma is very floral. Flavor is unoffending and floral. Pretty mild for a pale ale.

Not being a fan of "copious quantities of Cascade hops," it's a given that this one won’t fall into my Top Ten. But it is certainly better than a macro and hardly costs any more, and it’s an easy drinking beer that won’t frighten your girlfriend. Palate is definitely on the thin side though.

Very good pale, had it on tap in Sisters, Oregon. Very smooth and refreshing, somewhat malty, nice hop finish. Nice beer to end a summer day with.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2009 Draft and bottle both. Poured very clear orange/amber with a decent head. Aroma of yeast, hops, malt and citrus. Very good feel on the tongue. Flavor is caramel malts and floral hops. I really like this overall for a pale ale.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 This is one of my favorite beers period. I drank it on tap at the Portland City Grill and is incredibly smooth and a good bit hoppy. It is a great beer for a warm summer day (when they happen in Portland!) It poors a golden hue, has a good head and smells great. Enjoy
