Hops are the star of the show here. A very tasty pale ale. Crisp, clean, floral and citrus (tangerine and orange) Light, but assertive. One of my favorite Pale Ales

For a pale ale, this was quite bitter. "Crisply hopped," you might say. I can only barely taste these "nuances of toffee and vanilla," however, the texture could be aptly described as "bright" or, perhaps, clean? Really, thought, this is a good beer. A little bitter, maybe, but nothing to snuff at. If you like bitters--check it out. If you are a traditional pale ale person, you may not like it. Only one way to find out, though...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 12 oz. bottle. I may have rated this beer a bit high. This is my "go-to" beer, or session beer, so I may be biased. Golden color with thin white head. Aroma is mostly Cascade hops - that familiar mild and citrusy scent thats like an old friend. Flavor is mostly the hops, but amazingly very little bitterness. Some honey and fruity sweetness balance it out. Crisp, crisp, crisp! Medium light body with average carbonation. The moderate ABV and the fact that its crisp and refreshing without compromising any flavor or aroma makes for what is probably the most drinkable beer Ive ever had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, clear body, with big, frothy, creamy, white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, grass, candy. Tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine and a tasty, smooth malt backbone of caramel, biscuit, grass and some candy. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grapefruit, pine and some candy. A refreshing, greatly balanced example of a west coast Pale Ale, that has tasty citric fruit and pine notes and also a determined malt backbone. Excellent!

A good pale ale for those who don’t go for the type. A tad dry with vanilla notes and citrus, grapefruity, hops that come through on the front of the tongue, with slight pine notes mingling with the hops at the back of your tongue. A good brew for a hot day, very mildly malty and not at all aggressive.

Thanks to brewblackhole for this one! Pours a wonderful golden yellow color with a white head. AWESOME crisp hop aroma along with caramel and toffee. Great clean hop flavor to it as well. Nice malt backing as well. This would be a perfect brew to sit outside with on a warm summer day!
