Can poured into snifter. Med amber color, 1 finger white head, leaves irreg lacing. Hop, citrus aroma. Crisp hint of roasty grains meets citrus and is immediately followed by hop bitterness that dominates the finish. Refreshing NW pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Mike for this beauty. Pale gold pour with thick fluffy head. Bright citrus and stone fruit hop aroma. Light clean malt with some nice citrus hop taste. Low bitterness makes this a really easy drink. Very good.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Soft citrus, a hint of froot loops. Medium bodied, picks up a touch of sweaty mango armpit stuff, otherwise pretty nice. Gentle bitterness with a touch of grapefruit into the finish.

stevoj (3841) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Winco. Not too happy for an APA, lager comes to mind. Grain forward, hazy medium golden body, soft foamy head. Gentle hops on the aroma, malt bill takes over for taste. Medium weight, chewy body. Tasty, drinkable, and not hoppy at all.

On a flight from San Francisco to Seattle (USA), can. Rich gold pour semi clear, tick off-white head pretty stable. Nose: very resinous, pine forest, some citric too. Very nice. Mouth: tangerine, watery, grassy piney. Aroma was more impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IndianaRed (3742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2016
On Tap at Prefunk, Boise Clear light golden with a hint of orange. Modest soapy off-white head. Light slightly toasted malts. Rather dry and light. The hop profile seems rather noble. Almost Pilsneresque. Light sharp spiciness at the end and a distinct late cereal biscuity flavor. Interesting, different for a pale.

George999 (372) - Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2016
From the can the pour is strong colored with a hazy backing and a very thin white head the dissipates quickly, the aroma is citrus hops and very crisp aroma, the taste is citrus lightly hopped and a very good balance, the mouthfeel is thin. Overall impression is a solid ale with a good hop balance that is kept in check and not overpowering, a great ale that is not an IPA.
