3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle at home. Pours a hazy straw gold, rather opaque. Aroma is subtle -- mostly citrus hops, a hint of something floral, yeast, and a very light bread malt. Taste-wise the beer balances its malts and hops pretty well, though both flavors are subtle. The palate isnít very crisp, which leaves me with the impression that the beer is a bit flabby. The flavors donít pop much, either, though itís great for a light food accompaniment. Pretty tasty session beer, but thatís about all I can say for this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy mix of yellow and orange with not too big a head. Aroma is citrus and bitter hops, caramel, bread, sweet orange, slight hop funk as well. Taste is smooth, bready malt, hops, and caramel foremost with a slight sweetness of orange juice and a semi-dry finish. Overall a good beer, pretty sessionable, slightly above average regular pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: April 16, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: a good, long day needs an ale night... APPEARANCE: pours a copper amber body that teems with life--swirling, active bubbles and steady, upward effervescence; reasonably thick, two-finger white head stays packed as the glass settles; nice finger-like tracings on the outtro... AROMA: floral yes, as the Cascades promise; some subtle caramel and cereal offer a reasonable allure ... PALATE: lively rush at the tongue and teeth; medium-bodied and creamy, with a pleasant, long finish--what a worthwhile pale ale should embody... TASTE: mellow, almost apologetically light flavors--hops are floral and only peacefully bitter; the caramel malts keep this secure... OVERALL: quite sessionable, with the hint of dank wood at the end that keeps the experience earthy and heavier than expected; from a leftover surprise pack--judging on that alone (about $1 a beer in the 12-pack), a win...

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Handsome brew with a deep ruddy color. Nose with some dough and hold. Caramel front but then a whack of hops dries the mouth with bitterness. Bold and interesting.
