Pours a airly clear pale golden yellow, nose is moderate with hops, hints of citrus and floral. Taste is pretty dry, hint of residual sweetness, very light in body, and a nice finish of PNW hops. A really flavorful pale ale. Very impressed with drakes lately.

Clear amber, modest white head. Huge hop nose, but surprisingly malty start. Very fresh character, with bone dry bitter finish. Gets the job done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice pale ale. This is what I would expect from a local pale with a citrus and spice aroma to a well rounded finish. Good hop flavor with a sweet and smooth body. Very sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a finger and a half of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is a burst of lemon, pine and grapefruit with a little pineapple.
The taste has great balance. Nice moderate grapefruit bitterness mixed with honey sweet, finishes with a dry bitter.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.

"Nice use of hops here. I’d buy this 6-pack more often if they dated, but you can’t trust the age of brews where this is available. Too bad - it’s a nicely floral and citrusy hop driven pale ale. Well above average for the style when anywhere near fresh."
