COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We are a small, family-owned microbrewery founded in 2009 to brew small-batch artisan beers with the best local ingredients we can find. Located in the historic neighborhood of Fremont, we invented the Bro Hug, the Triple ripple and Extreme Water before deciding to make beer. We dedicate this beer to you, Washington Beer Fan, for embracing adventure, creativity, facial hair, and the skilled craft people of our industry above all. Seattle Beer Week’s (SBW) 5th Anniversary Beer is a testament to the passion and vision of the founders. This organic session pale ale is made exclusively with Cowiche Canyon Citra and Simcoe hops grown in partnership with the Carpenter and Britt families and Yakima Chief in the Yakima Valley of eastern Washington to promote the organic hop industry in Washington State ... Because Organic Hops Matter ... Thank You, Seattle Beer Week and Thank You, Washington Beer Lover! "Hey, it’s better in the can." - V.W.P.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2013
Frothy foam head atop a bronzed body. Burst of orange citrus dominates the nose, though some grains eke in. Wonderful freshly milled pale grains dominate the palate with citrus-accented hops lightly playing off of it. A solid pale ale.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours bright golden yellow with thin white head that lingers well. Aroma is slightly spicy fresh hops. Taste is crisp dry malt with earthy grassy bitter hops. Body is a little thin, but it doesn’t taste like a 4% beer. This would be perfect on a hot summer day. Certainly a departure from past SBW beers.

Can. Recieved as an extra. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Fruity hop aroma. Medium mouthfeel with carbonation. Nice flavors of peach and apricot. Nice level of bitterness as well that lingers after the initial drink. It’s not bad. Organic too!

TheHOFF43 (1734) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
Can from riversideak. This is awesome. Aroma is tons of citrus hops, grass and floral. Taste matches the aroma. Incredibly good, sessionable and delicious.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2013
Whatever. 4.5% with great flavor. Not rare enough to achieve a high score i guess. Remember the Hill Farmstead boners at the last tasting? This is better and easier to get. Anyways... Nose of citrus, a little crackery malt, grass, touch of dank. Clean and hoppy nose. Very nice. Pours golden, nice clarity, thin whispy head, soft lace. Flavors of crackery dry malt with a good dose of citrus dank and grass. Chewy hop finish. Dry quenching with lingering citrus notes. Nice carbonation. Great refesher.

Zeswaft (1362) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2013
Can. Golden color and little head. Pleasant and full grassy and grapefruit aroma. Upfront this is delightfully hoppy and malty. However, the flavor quickly disappears and finishes with grassy bitterness. Still a refreshing and great sessionable hoppy offering.

Prufrockstar (835) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2013
Can. Pours clear, straw colored golden with white head that dissipates fast. Fresh, weedy hop aroma, with tropical citrus, dank, and spicy bread/biscuit. Pizza crust - there’s a smell reminiscent of pizza dough I swear. Taste of grass/hay, wheat, dry graininess, biscuit, cracker. Short finish with crisp, light bitterness to seal the deal. Pretty dry overall. Pizza crust is still there. Lively carbonation, light body, texture a little on the thin side. Overall: Refreshing, thirst-quenching and and drinkable. Nice. Makes me wish I had a lawn to mow.
