Draught: This one pours a cloudy amber color. Fairly decent aroma of hops to the nose. Flavor is well balanced, with a fairly decent hop bite at the end. Not spectacular, but a decent Pale Ale.

Darker orange then most. Head was medium to thin. Nose had lots of citrus with a bit of pine. Good 1st impression. Slightly sharp with the citrus held back.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Soft, comforting floral hop bouquet. Body is mellow, sweet, and bitter with a light, sticky dry finish. This exhibits good balance and a fresh hop flavor, a good APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber in color. Nose not as floral or hoppy as i would have imagined, given the label says "copious quantities of Cascades" are added. Pears and fruit in the finish, also bitterness. THis beer got a lot better as it warmed, with more N'western hop notes shining through. I think this beer needs, and I almost hate to say this, more hops.

Clear reddish-orange colour with small, off-white head. Aroma of floral & citric hops with a hint of malt lurking in the background. Flavour starts with sweet malt, leading to a nice bite of spicy and citric hops. Finish is crisp and dry, very refreshing.
