To everything there is a season – and a limited edition Fort George collaboration. The aromatic Tender Loving Empire NWPA quenches your springtime thirst for Oregon-made music, craft, community, and of course, beer. Like the end of a bright day, TLE Northwest Pale Ale glows with a tangerine hue, emanating harmonies of citrus fortified by notes of pine. It’s organically brewed in the Sunset Empire, a.k.a. Astoria, OR. Tender Loving Empire, our collaborator, synchronizes a well-known record label with a silk-screening studio and a handmade craft and music store in downtown Portland. Find out more about TLE and the "Wooden Sunset" artwork they created for the can you’re holding right now, at fortgeorgebrewery.com/tenderlovingempire

From can. Orange amber color, with a bit of sediment floating near bottom of glass. Aroma of woody resin, pine, some citrus. Flavor is hop-forward, with more notes of pine and citrus. Finishes with some bitterness, but mostly balanced.

bvc (1241) - Washington, USA - APR 1, 2013
16oz can. Pours a hazy unfiltered darker golden with a bit of a orange tint, loose head white head. Sweeter caramel, piney citrus, but then there is this slight off putting faint vegital metallic twang, doughy biscuit malt. As it warms, the twang starts to fade a bit and more sugary sweetness shows. Fuller body feel. Doughy malt and citrus laced pine, fairly sweet throughout with a bitter astringent finish.

Maarten1993 (1004) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
Drank with Thijs 28-9-2014. Good starter. Nice IPA but too bitter, not rich enough hops. Still okay

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Big piney hop aroma. Medium bodied. Good hop character for a pale ale, but good balance. Good.

pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Can - pours out cloudy copper with many suspended particles floating - appears to be yeast? Once you get past the visual, the nose is strong piney hop. Taste is big on hop with a bitter undertone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a super hazy golden-orange with a thick, frothy, pale head. Aroma brings honey and caramel tones, followed by mild pine and citrus notes. Flavor is slightly sweet and malty, balanced by bright, hoppy pine and blood orange. Moderately bitter, lightly spicy rye finish. True to the NW pale ale style.

Pretzel (1) - Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013 does not count
16 oz can. Nice citrus, pine aroma. Like the rye spicyness balance to the hop flavor. Well done.
