3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I am not much for IPA's, but this wasn't to bad. It tasted slightly sweet for my taste, with a dry hoppy finish. Some thing good to buy by the bottle, but I probably wouldn't buy it regulary.

I chilled this 12oz. bottle colder than normal,as I do with all
my "lighter ales". It poured a light orangish-red brown. Quite a unique color.The head would have been a little bigger at proper temperature. Very nice nose. Citrusy, piney hops with malt backing. I like the taste of
this pale ale. You really notice the dry hopping along with the sublte toastiness. I really like the flavor that Cascade hops give.
Very good, hoppy Northwest Pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is a wonderful copper color, quite clear as well. Pours with a cream colored head. The aroma has hints of lychee and grapefruit, definitely an American hop signature here. Quite malty tasting with a nice hop flavor that hits the tongue up front. This beer finishes with a slight bitterness. It seemed to be missing the American hop punch that the aroma promised, other than this quite an enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good West Coast pale-big Cascade nose coming out from under a fluffy white head, soft/toasty body providing adequate support. In the same vein as Red Seal, but not as clean.

First time they have been in Arizona, at the beer festival. Nice hoppy aroma. Medium bodied palate, somewhat dry. A good full flavored beer.

Had this one while in Oregon. The wonderfully hoppy aroma and flavor and lingering berry/cherry after-taste were quite a nice surprise. An excellent session beer. Wish they would ship to Texas.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber in color with a nice off-white head that leaves behind nice lacing. Light citrusy, grapefruit aromas (Cascades all the way). Balanced flavors nothing really stands out. Very dry with a toolight body.
