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.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this can. It is being reviewed from notes and was drank fresh. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong pine, pineapple and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is full of pine, biscuit malt, orange citrus and some low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Zeswaft (1380) - 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.

ACHops (712) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2013
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.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On tap pours a pale golden color with a thin white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, citrus,and tropical. Tastes of all the same things with a pretty good hop bite. Mouthfeel is pretty light with good carbonation. This was a good and hoppy session pale ale. Could probably drink 3 or 4 pints of this no problem.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Can:   Pale golden, vibrant, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrus peel, pith, and bright straw on the nose.   Moderate bitterness on the tongue.   Pith and peel.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Bright hoppy finish, also with straw and hay.   Good balance, not dull, and not overly hopped.   Solid example of an American Pale Ale.
