COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American-style pale ale. Amber colored with distinct floral aroma and a medium-hopped bitterness. It's dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascade and Brambling hops.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle: Golden, slight haze, moderate white foamy head, nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Wet hop aroma, very slight ashtray.   Soft bitterness to start, ashtray aroma yields to a very soft campfire or charred wood on the tongue.   Finishes with a very slight citrus peel, minor smoke, but overall it seems somewhat thin in the mouthfeel.   Body however is fairly average.   I’d sum this up as a Light American Pale Ale.   Thanks Ken!

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is moderate grapefruit and floral hops with a nice balance of malt (cookie). Pours a mostly transparent amber (just a touch of haze) with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. Flavor is lightly sweet up front with caramel and cookie with a much bigger hop finish that is mostly pine with a hint of grapefruit. Smooth and somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2005
12 oz bottle - Received in a trade with Indiana_Red - Thanks Ken! Pours very cloudy amber with a short white head. Grapefruit aroma over some light malts. Flavor seemed very IPA like. Bitter grapefruit hops seem to overwhelm the caramel malt background. Very drinkable but kind of unbalanced and dominated by the hops. Tasty though and I’m glad I got to try this.

IndianaRed (2606) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2005 Bottle Pours a hazy orange golden color. Very small thin head and traces of white lacing try desperately to cling to the sides. Decebt citrusy hops aroma, rather IPAish. Flavors were also dominated by a citrusy hoppiness and a lingering bite was left as a trailer. Light to moderate palate, good for the style I suppose.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Bottle: I loved this beer, but it seemed more like an IPA than an American Pale Ale. Anyway, it was a slightly hazy gold color with a small, white head. It has citrus aromas (especially grapefruit) and tastes. Malts went almost unnoticeable. Overall, very enjoyable! I would drink again.

NABA ’05: Light PNW hops lend to the toasty malts and a light body. More bitterness than the nose would lead on to and then the mouthfeel falls flat leaving you empty and craving more. Body is to beer what salt is to food.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2005
Dark copper color. Nice doughy malt in the nose with a huge dose of earthy, piney, lemony aromatic hops. Coating, rich and earthy hop flavor, fresh and piney. Pretty suprisingly good and perhaps one I might actually purchase someday.

When I went to the brewery this was my favorite. Have bought it a couple times when looking for a light pale ale and have enjoyed it. Head is a bit weak and so is the aroma but it’s a nice change of pace when your looking for something hoppy but not on the mega scale of American IPA’s. Also, a bit more approachable for friends of mine that are not hop heads like me ;-)

jigglyjock (163) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Pours a semi-clear light brown with almost no head. Smells of sweet hops and malt. Tastes bitter hops and then transitions to a malty floral flavor. Medium body which lets a hoppy malt flavor to linger in the mouth.

The Extra Pale pours a cloudy golden amber with lots of small floaties. It has a smallish head that quickly goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

Its aroma is strong piney, citrusy hops.

The flavor is biscuity malt with a good piney hop bite and bitter aftertaste. It is a little on the thin and watery side.

Overall, a nice APA. It’s kind of similar to Hazed and Infused. I wonder if this is dry hopped as well.
