2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap St. Augustine’s, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light floral minerally notes and some biscuity malt. Flavour is pretty weak, with lots of minerally notes, a touch of soapy hops and biscuity malt. Something seems not quite right here. Very bland and somewhat metallic on the finish. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass, pours a deep yellow-golden color, light haze, and a modest white head. Nice sheet lacing. The nose is authentic PNW hops and pale malt... I don’t know what more to say. Translates right into the taste. Floral and citrus, a light fruity and a little pine. I’m impressed. Its not over complicated, but its rich at the same time. Reminds me of the first few times I had Mirror Pond... the urge to fill the beer fridge. Well done.

Cool to see another Double Mountain bottle in town.. Picked up at the COOP and enjoyed from my CBC Teku.. Pours slightly hop-hazed dark golden... 2-finger white head dies back pretty quickly leaving great lacing... Nice tropical fruity/citrus hops with a light piney element.. Great hop flavor and aroma... In many parts of the country, this would be considered an IPA, but here in the PNW, this is a great NW Pale Ale... Well made and tastes very fresh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12oz $4.25): Cloud golden with soapy white head. The description calls this Dank. Not sure what dank tastes like, but not sure I like it. Is it like wet grass? Anyway seems more bitter than most pale ales from start to finish. The finish is slightly metallic.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Another DM pale dingy yellow beer. Thin but dense white head. Nice bright piney hop aroma. Big hoppy biter flavor but dull and blunt. A little soapy. Plenty of IBUs for a LA but not as good on the fresh hop flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery in Hood River. Very pungent nose (Simcoe),with a slight maltiness. Medium straw color. Initial has a mini-shock of hops, which soon settles. Then the hops gather strength again in late mid and final. Quite tart sort of finish. Medium body and chewy. Way overhopped for a pale ale -- but that’s the way they do it here. Really tasty.
