UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep copper in color. Nose is sweet and fruity. Some breadiness up front along with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Decent grapefruit peel bitterness finishes this brew off.

It poured an orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of some pine, maybe spruce and malts. The flavor was sweet caramel, pines and loads of hops. A very good Northwest Pale Ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of a coppery color, clear, very pretty looking with a nice two finger white head and nice lacing.
Smell is fruity, floral, hoppy, touches of pine. Flavor is really great on the fruits, light fruits dominate, mangos, peaches, apricots, pears, apples all come to mind. There’s tons of great hops presence, piney, floral, citrus very nice.
Body is light and finishes slightly bitter, almost like a light IPA, certainly more bold than your average pale ale.
Overall it’s very fine and I plan to drink it again and again! I like a good hop forward pale ale and this one fits the bill.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color. Aroma of floral, citrus, caramel, grass. Flavor is citrus, caramel, pine, hay. Being a hop-forward beer, there is a nice amount of sweetness. Quite an enjoyable American Pale Ale.

Bottle. Pours an amber brown with nice creamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts and piny and citrusy hops. This beer is perfectly balanced. Delicious. Seriously, one of my new favorite bottled beers. I think I’ll have another.
