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.

Pours a nice copper color with a small off-white head and some lacing. It has a light citrus aroma. The flavor is very interesting, with alternating hops and malty sweetness, a lingering malt aftertaste, and a smooth mouthfeel.

Not the in your face pale ale you'd expect from the northwest.
A: Moderate hop with a caramel malt backbone
C: Copper with some haze and a nice head.
T: Moderate hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness
O: Not an overpowering hop bomb. A little sweet on the finish.

Very strong malt presence with a hint of citrusy hops. Def not a west coast pale ale if thats what you are looking for. Very smooth and would be a good beer for someone who is just getting into the craft scene.
