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.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma on this for just a pale ale. Floral, piney, and plenty of citrus on top of a solid malt balance. Slightly more lackluster flavor, less hop presence, more malts coming through. Tasty.

22. Pours a clear medium amber with golden brown highlights. Loose filmy tannish head knocking around, leaving bits of patchy lace. Nice fruity nose, caramel showing through oranges and pineapples. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid-palate. Pleasant. Tangy pineapple finish. Nice fresh citric fruity APA. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful clear golden with a foamy white head. Prety lovely nose of sweet of pale ale malty biscuit and a sharp grassy fresh cascade hop. Smooth and mellow flavor thats balanced and hoppy and sweet malty. There’s a nice grassy and citrus pop on the start followed by a golden toast and pale ale malt body. Nice toffee and citrus sweetness with a blonde ale body. And a touch of peppery hops. Nicely nuanced pale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), with light notes of diacetyl and celery, hint of fusel alcohol.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation.
Rather clunky aroma...rough malt and some light off notes. Ample hop bouquet, but the other things bring it down. Decent balance, but not especially clean. Mediocre at best.

12oz can from Total Wine in WA
Appearance: A huge gusher out of the can onto my desk, not good. Pours cloudy golden with a huge frothy white head that recedes quickly leaving spotty lacing in the glass
Aroma: Floral, lemon peel and wet grains
Taste: Citrus, caramel, bready, herbal and pine bitterness
A nice hoppy pale ale. Not happy about the gusher, but what was left was tasty
