3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer goes with anything... from mac’n’cheese to sushi. Nothing particularly remarkable, but an excellent staple beer. It has a freshness that survives the bottle. Light bodied with very good hop flavor.

(bottle, Great US Beer Tasting in Genoa) Good hop aroma. The flavour is balanced, with adequate bitterness. Body is a bit on the thin side. Quite drinkable.

This is a decent, drinkable pale ale, but nothing too special. Kind of on the watery side.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 When im in the northwest this is usually my "can get anywhere" beer. Slight grapefruit/piney aroma. orange and pine also stand out in flavor. The bitterness adds a nice kick also. Delicious beer, great on tap.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is mostly orange with light grapefruit hoppiness and a touch of floral aromas as well. Hazy orange with a nice white head that lasts a mnute or so. Flavor has lots of sweet orange up front and light caramel. Light piney and grapefruit hop finish. Well balanced for the most part, but a tad more hops wouldn’t hurt. Very easy drinking. A very nice APA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer was had on draught at Billy McHales in Lynnwood. It pours a golden amberish color with a small white head with very good lacing. The aroma is piney with floral citrus hints and a small hint of malty fruits. The flavor is medium bodied, generally hoppy and relatively light on the carbonation. Easy drinking sessionable beer, highly palate. Oranges, tangerines, citrus, florals and some pine with a fairly wet finish for an APA. For as simple as this is, its well put together.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006
On tap at Ivars in Seattle
Pours fairly light; the aroma is hops, citrus peel, a bit of rising bread. The flavor is a pleasing mellow hoppiness with slightly stronger malt profiles than I would have expected and a gentle sourness. This is not a powerful APA, nor is it standout, but it is a reasonable enough beer to make for pleasant drinking.

Delicious. Robust and wonderous. The continuation of a fair but (****)ed up night. I’m young, I’ll learn how to work people, I swear. Random bar, Freemont, Seattle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Fresh hop score is 4.4. Not the same beer, seems like it should have it’s own rating. Fix this ratebeer!
Smells decently hoppy and looks pretty good for a pale ale. It has the lingering hop flavor that it claims- unfortuantely, as it lingers it turns funky and bad. Original score: 8,3,5,2,9.
Re-rate: Must have been a bad bottle. A crisp clean bite with enought hops to be a solid american pale ale.
