2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this after a Snoqualmie Falls Copperhead Pale Ale and it suffered in the comparision. Althought not a bad brew it is nothing special either. Pours a bit thin, clear golden in colour. Lots of malts in the nose, some spice in the background and the hops the west coast is known for. Taste is a bit watery but the hops and spices do make for an interesting play. Finish is unremarkable but not offense.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer burst forth from the 12-ounce brown bottle a cloudless golden color with a semi-creamy white head that is modest in size and as it dissolves, the lace forms a thick and clinging sheet upon the glass. Nose is malt dominated with a slight hint of hops, lime like in its crispness, fresh and pleasing to the nose and the eyes, start is delightfully malted and slightly sweet with the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is moderate in its acidity, the hops delectable in their spicy presence, very dry and lingering aftertaste, and a nice beer and really hits the spot.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is fruity, oranges and pears. A medium bodied summer ale. Malts are fruity with pears and apricots being the dominant flavor. Slightly spicy hops. Fruity, light and refreshing. Not much else. A nice summer beer, it would be nice on a hot summer day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Light orange in color. The strong floral, perfumy aromas becomes apparent immediatly. Quickly followed up with undertones of fruit and herbacious hops. Light bodied and mild. With flavors of sweet malt and a simple light hop finish. Kind of boring.

This is an obviously well made brew. The ratio of hops to malt is just about perfect. Hops evident, but no citrus, make this a pleasant tasting, easy drinker.

Very wonderful, light, crisp ale. A good summer beer. Light golden body with a thin white head. Beutiful hoppy aroma. Not sure how to identify taste except that it was bitter and slightly sweet.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was citrusy and hoppy with maybe a light malt side coming through as well.The flavor was fruity and sweet at times with a change to a mild bitter sweet hop taste to go along with the citrusy grapefruit notes.The malt stays a bit on the mild side i think with the hops being the big deal here.Over all i’d say it’s a fairly decent brew that is nice to drink while catching a little sun while fishing.
